Estate agent still a key conveyancing recommender for house movers, research reveals
A third of home movers or approximately 300,000 people every year turn solely to estate agents to recommend a conveyancing solicitor, it has been revealed.
Conveyancing brokerage When You Move says its research shows that 32% of home buyers complete little or no research into which conveyancer to use when buying or selling a home, relying entirely on agents for advice.
The research, which was conducted among some 2,000 respondents, also highlights how a ‘local’ conveyancer is important to people, but that the internet is making inroads into the market.
A fifth of those canvassed had gone online to find a solicitor, basing their decisions on how high up the online search rankings each company is listed. Also, 28% said they had only realised how high their conveyancing fees were going to be once it was too late.
