Choose a legal Eagle not a Turkey

Posted on Sunday, March 18, 2018


You are selling your most valuable asset. It’s important that the people helping you to achieve your goals are the best for the job.

You’ve chosen a great estate agent (hopefully Sansome & George).

Now it’s time to instruct a solicitor. Sometimes referred to as a conveyancer or conveyancing solicitor.

Over many years we’ve dealt with hundreds of them. Some very good. Some very bad.

They really can be the difference between a property deal going through or collapsing.

A good solicitor certainly helps everyone involved in the buying or selling the property remain calm and well informed.

The three main things to look out for when picking a solicitor to handle your sale are:

Communication: Will they return your calls? Do they needlessly insist on replying in writing every time?

Clarity: Does their quote include disbursements? These add on fees can really mount up. Be clear on what you are going to pay.

Customer Care:  Do they have a good track record? Do they have testimonials they share willingly? Ask your friends and family for referrals.

We work regularly with a company of solicitors who we highly recommend.

Get in touch and I’ll be delighted to share their details with you.

Thanks for reading,



David G Sansome, Managing Director

I was pleasantly surprised by the courtesy, responsiveness, attention to detail and willingness to help on the part of the sales staff (in particular Nick and Brendan) from the outset. They understand what "going the extra mile" actually means, and this made the transaction so much easier than I had anticipated, as I was necessarily dealing...
