Fast conveyancing


A number of law firms and licensed traders offer ‘fast conveyancing’. It is difficult to determine what actually constitutes fast conveyancing. This is because there is no hard and fast rule as to how long a conveyancing transaction should take. It really depends on the circumstances of the case. Whilst the average residential conveyancing transaction takes between six-eight weeks, some transactions take less, others longer.

Firms who offer fast conveyancing should be used with caution. Some guarantee to complete a conveyancing transaction within as little as seven days. Whilst this may appear attractive, you might question the thoroughness and diligence of the job. Conveyancing can often throw up complex legal and other problems, and these problems can take weeks or months to resolve properly. Those who offer fast conveyancing may not have time to resolve these problems properly, and as a result you may see corners being cut in order to save time.

This is not to say that all firms who offer fast conveyancing should not be used. Some offer fast conveyancing on the condition that no unforeseen legal or other problems arise. Others offer a waiver of the premium if they cannot meet deadlines. Such firms may be perfectly fine to use. However, you should research the market thoroughly before instructing any conveyancing firm.  

Conveyancing solicitors and licensed traders can be found online. However, you may not be able to find out enough information about the firm from their website. You could consider using a referral company.
