When and how to switch conveyancers

Published : 2021

If you feel as if your conveyancing solicitors have let you down during the process of your move, you still have options as a consumer. Changing conveyancing solicitors sounds like the last thing you’d want to do on top of all the other things to think about when moving, however a new solicitor may provide a faster and less stressful experience. If you have doubts about your current solicitor, you may want to consider a change for peace of mind.

First steps

If problems do crop up with your conveyancing solicitor, your first step should be to reach out to them and see if any issues can be resolved through their complaints handling process. However, if you have exhausted other options then you are well within your right to look for a different provider. You can change conveyancing solicitors at any point in the process, although it is advisable to do so before the exchange of contracts. This is because changing the conveyancing provider after this point could affect your completion date.

Things to consider

There are a number of things to consider when switching, including whether you will have to pay for work that has already been carried out, whether the change in solicitor will affect your mortgage provider and where the responsibilities lie in handing over paperwork to the new firm.

Benefits of switching conveyancers

Conveyancing can sometimes be a lengthy and complicated process, but if you feel as if things are progressing unusually slowly then you have the option to change conveyancing solicitors. In the long run, a change in conveyancers could save you precious money and time.
