Choosing a solicitor

Independence

The service is completely independent. Enter your requirements and, within seconds, you will be presented with a list of solicitors and conveyancers. The list will show who they are, where they are based, the costs and the rating awarded to them by previous users. It's up to you which one you choose.

Rest assured

Whichever solicitor you decide to appoint, you can rest assured that:

  • The fee quoted will be very competitive
  • You will not be charged a legal fee if your sale or remortgage does not complete*
  • All solicitors agree to rigorous service standards which are constantly monitored to ensure all conveyancing work meets high standards
  • Your solicitor can start work for you immediately once you have instructed them online. There is no need to attend meetings or send them a letter of appointment
  • You can track the progress of your case online, at any time that suits you. Your solicitor will keep the conveyancing system updated and you can view the case history whenever you want to. You can also get e-mail or SMS text message updates.

Service standards

All solicitors on our panel:

  • Accept referrals and contact clients within 24 hours of being instructed
  • Commit to keeping the client up-to-date daily via the website, email or text messages
  • Will try their best to meet the expected completion date agreed to each stage of the process
  • Manage all cases from acceptance to completion on a daily basis
  • Chase any overdue stages and escalate as appropriate.

Rating solicitors

Once a case has completed, you can give the solicitor a performance rating, which can be reviewed by other users. This provides an added incentive for solicitors to ensure their service is of the highest quality.

Transfer of equity

A transfer of equity is needed where people want to change the legal ownership on a property where there is a mortgage. There could be various reasons for wanting to do this, for example:

  • If you get married and want to transfer an existing home into joint names.
  • If you get divorced or separated and want to transfer a jointly owned property into the sole name of one of the partners.
  • As part of tax planning if advised by your tax planner to transfer a share of the family home to a child or other family member.

Whatever the reason, you should consult a solicitor for legal advice.

And, with YBS Conveyancing Services, it's quick and easy to find and instruct a solicitor online.
