Word of mouth is always a favourite but will not necessarily give you the best deal.

How do I find a solicitor?

Some people use the family solicitor but this can be a very expensive option. Word of mouth is always a favourite but will not necessarily give you the best deal. There is now a wealth of conveyancing comparison sites and this method of finding a solicitor is now more popular than word of mouth, according to recent figures.

High Street Solicitor v Conveyancing Comparison site?

The High Street option will give a local service compared with an out of town solicitor instructed though a conveyancing comparison site. Both options will be governed by the Law Society and so you will be fully protected.

Some prefer to instruct a local solicitor and are more comfortable being able to drop in if they need to. However, High Street solicitors will probably be more expensive than comparison site solicitors who appear on the sites simply because they offer a good service at a good price. “Remote” solicitors, instructed through comparison sites, have their performance regularly monitored by the sites themselves and service standards are usually high. You do not need to visit these solicitors. Low fees are always an attraction.
