Why It Helps to Choose a Local Conveyancing Solicitor

Whether you’re buying or selling a home, when it comes to conveyancing, you have a huge range of companies to choose from. So why should you choose a local conveyancing solicitor?

Your estate agent has probably recommended one of the large, online conveyancing firms, promising artificially low prices and unfeasibly fast service. If you’re certain that your sale or purchase will be simple, straightforward and seamless, then this could well be all you need. Unfortunately, very few property transactions are ever that easy. And when you inevitably run into problems, you’ll be glad of a friendly face to talk to at Holdens Law, your local conveyancing solicitor.

Local knowledge

Holdens have been serving the local community in and around Lancaster and Kendal since 1847, so we know the area inside out. This gives our team unrivalled knowledge of the local property market, as well as excellent relationships with local estate agents and solicitors.

As a local conveyancing solicitor, we know which searches are relevant to your property, so you don’t waste time and money on searches that simply don’t apply – or miss anything important that does. We can even visit properties in person to check out boundary disputes, rights of way and other issues.

Personal service

Choosing a local conveyancing solicitor gives you the very best in personal service. As a client of Holdens Law, you’ll be assigned a dedicated contact who will handle your case from start to finish. They’ll take the time to get to know you, and to understand your individual situation and the detailed aspects of the property or properties involved. That way they can plan more effectively, offering innovative solutions where appropriate.

There’s no one-size-fits-all at Holdens, because we know that conveyancing is more than just a box ticking exercise. Every client is different, every home is unique, and every transaction affects many lives. It’s a huge responsibility that we’re proud to be trusted with.

Expert advice

Holdens Law gives you the reassurance of experience and expertise, as Jemma Higson, head of our conveyancing team explains:

“Here at Holdens, you get the peace of mind of dealing with an experienced, fully qualified team, dedicated to making your transaction as smooth, swift and straightforward as possible,” says Jemma. “What’s more, you’ll have the backing of a full-service law firm should your sale or purchase include probate, divorce or other complications.”

Quick and convenient

Buying or selling a home is likely to be the biggest transaction of your life, so you want to know you are in good hands. With a local conveyancing solicitor like Holdens Law, you know you can always drop in to check on progress, sign documents, prove your ID or discuss your case in person.

This means any issues can be dealt with promptly, with no postal delays on documents, speeding up the whole process. The longer your conveyancing takes, the greater the chances that something will go wrong or the buyers will pull out. Holdens’ prompt, professional service could mean the difference between completing your sale and losing it.

Proud reputation

Above all, by choosing Holdens Law as your local conveyancing solicitor, you can rest assured that you’re choosing a proud reputation that we work hard to preserve. We’ve thrived on local recommendations for over 175 years, and so we make sure that every client receives the highest levels of service and the best possible experience when dealing with us.

Of course, you don’t have to live locally to enjoy the personal service of Holdens Law. Many of our clients have been with us for years and have now moved away from the area. Yet they still trust Holdens Law to represent them in property transactions nationwide.
