Buying or selling your home is a significant step in anyone’s life...

You might be moving with a new job, buying a bigger place for a new or growing family, downsizing, or have simply decided that it's time for a change. There are many things to think about when moving house.

There will be practicalities to sort out, such as arranging removals, enrolling children at new schools, notifying utility companies and letting family and friends know, to name just a few. You’ll also need a skilful lawyer to act for you in the process known as conveyancing: this is a process that takes care of the legal side of moving and ultimately ensures that the “legal title” to the property passes from the seller to the buyer. Many people do not realise the complexities of conveyancing and the dangers of trying to do DIY online. Quite often pitfalls created do not manifest themselves for years to come or when you go to sell your house leading to disastrous consequences.

"At McConnell Kelly we take great pride in the fact that we have successfully completed thousands of property transactions for buyers and sellers in our 25 year history and see the market's strength here and returning confidence in the property sector as a very positive development," said Darren Duncan, a Director at McConnell Kelly.

"We have a dedicated Conveyancing Division that's invested heavily in technology and a senior team of lawyers to ensure we go that extra mile for you once you've found your dream home. Many people think that 'any solicitor will do,' but when it comes to conveyancing our service we is unparalleled - making your transition trouble free. We strive to offer 'peace of mind,' through excellent communication and regular updates, whether you are buying or selling, look no further."


In short – what do you need and want from your conveyancing solicitor?

  • Who will have the responsibility for your transaction?
  • What are their qualifications?
  • Is the work being carried out by a fully qualified solicitor?
  • How easy will it be to communicate with your lawyer?
  • Can you call in any see them?
  • Are you at risk if anything unusual or unexpected crops up?
