A worthy read for Conveyancing Solicitors across the UK, North London estate agent David Pollock outlines the dos and don’ts for buying and selling a property in his new book, entitled “101 Things Your Estate Agent Should Tell You”.
Pollock emphasises the importance of “taking a step back and removing yourself from the action” when buying or selling a property as if you are “spectating from a balcony, or perhaps a box in the theatre”.
I cannot stress how important Pollock’s statement is, as many purchasers get wrapped up in the excitement of buying a new house that they tend to overlook certain key issues which can lead you to commit errors of judgement. Estate agents are familiar with the markets and the most recent selling prices for similar homes in the area and can ensure that you are getting the correct value for your money. Similarly, a licensed Conveyancing Solicitor is familiar with and able to deal with all the legal matters, paperwork and queries involved in a property transaction and remains impartial and objective.
Buyers and sellers are also warned about the amount of time and commitment that must be set aside for a property transaction which can, in most cases, equal to more than 30 hours. It is no doubt that purchasing a new home is a huge investment, and an experienced professional is able to dedicate the time and knowledge on your behalf dealing with common matters and issues that can arise. Pollock estimates that those 30 hours will probably earn or save you £10, 000, which works out at £333 an hour; Fridaysmove ’s recommended Conveyancing Solicitors are prepared to do the work for you as a price tag nowhere close to that.
