When hiring conveyancing professionals, there are quite a few important points that should be kept in mind. First and foremost it is very vital that as a customer you should have some basic information about the roles and responsibilities of a conveyancer. Whenever a property is bought or sold it has to go through various legal, compliance related and statutory steps and processes. It is therefore important to hire the right professionals who are clearly in the know about these processes. The processes include amongst other functions, ensuring the legal sanctity of the property that is being transacted upon, finding the fair and correct market value of the property in question and also taking care of the various documentations that are required for ensuring ownership transfer from one entity to another.
Once a customer has a broad idea about these major requirements that are expected of a conveyancer, it would not be difficult for him or her to choose the right service provider. To begin with a good conveyancer should be one who must be certified under the law. It is not advisable to go for conveyancing from any conveyancer who does not possess this certificate.
The next important attribute of a good conveyancing company or individual is that they should be able to offer the entire process of conveyancing under one roof. There are quite a few conveyancers who believe in outsourcing a part or the entire task to third party service providers. This is not desirable and because quality and timely submission of reports and returns could be hampered.
Experience makes a man perfect and this is well and truly applicable for a real estate conveyancer. It is therefore expected of a good service provider to have the desired experience in this field. As a thumb rule, a good conveyancer should have put in at least 10 to 15 years in this field. Experienced conveyancers would also be in a position to handle tough and complex jobs which others may not be able to do.
While there is no doubt that competitive pricing is an important attribute of a good conveyancer, this alone should not be the deciding factor. Professional conveyancers should know how to merge competitive pricing with quality services at all points in time.
