Solicitor negligence may arise in property conveyance transaction

Some people engage in transactions involving large amounts of money on a regular basis. For most people however, transactions of this nature are limited to the purchase or sale of their home. Called conveyancing, this is generally a complicated process resulting in a great amount of stress.

The process involves two parts. The first phase involves exchanging contracts. The second is the completion phase. Together, it can take up to 10 weeks to complete this process. To avoid issues throughout this process and help reduce stress, it is advisable to work with a solicitor to handles conveyances.

The solicitor hired should perform a variety of searches and checks. These need to be conducted regarding not only the property, but the land upon which it sits. Because the failure to complete these searches and checks correctly could result in issues with the transaction, it is vital the solicitor selected has a thorough knowledge of the process and does everything he or she can to insure the transaction goes smoothly.

Unfortunately, this is not always the case. All too often the solicitor hired to handle the conveyance of property fails to perform the tasks in the manner expected. This can result in the loss of a large amount of money.

There is a course of action available to parties in this situation. In an effort to recoup damages they may opt to pursue a solicitor’s negligence case. Here again, the solicitor selected is important. It is a good idea to find someone who regularly handles cases of this nature. We handle cases of this nature.
