Christmas Conveyancing | Positives of instructing before January

The holiday period is a notorious time for the housing market to grind to a halt. Indeed, property lawyers often use this period as a chance to tie up loose ends for current clients and prepare themselves for the inevitable housing rush in the New Year.

Understandably many house hunters and sellers are reluctant to actively pursue their purchase or sale whilst they are pre-occupied with Christmas stress and costs. However, if you know you are likely to need a conveyancing lawyer in the New Year it is best to get it sorted ASAP.

Instruct your conveyancing lawyer early

Instructing a lawyer before accepting or making an offer is a great way to reduce conveyancing stress. Quite often people don’t realise there is some preliminary paperwork which has to be completed before the conveyancing process can really get going.

Instructing before Christmas means you will time to begin filling in forms and sending them to your property solicitor before the housing rush in the New Year. Ultimately this gets you ahead of everyone else who is also buying and selling property during January!
