Conveyancing in Berkshire
Berkshire is well known as it’s where Windsor Castle is based. As such Berkshire is often referred to as the Royal County of Berkshire. As one of the oldest counties in England, Berkshire is bordered by Oxfordshire, Surrey, Hampshire and Buckinghamshire. This makes property in Berkshire some of the most expensive in the country with some prices well above the national average.
A solicitor usually handles the purchase of a property. It is always advisable to check that the solicitor you are using for conveyancing in Berkshire is a member of the Law Society. This will mean that they are fully aware of the regulations that relate to money laundering and the sale of property. The Law Society itself has a Money Laundering Task Force and a Land Law Conveyancing Committee that oversees these elements of their members’ work.
If you have a complaint about any of the conveyancing work that your solicitor has carried out on your behalf, you should contact the firm that the solicitor works for. They should have a formal complaints procedure you can use. If you are not satisfied with the response you receive, you can complain to the Law Society, as it operates the Legal Complaints Service (LCS).
Your last resort if you are not completely happy with the outcome of your complaint is to take your conveyancing solicitor to court. It is vital that you have qualified legal representation at every stage of your court case. Never try and handle these cases yourself, as the law in this area is highly complex and is difficult for the layperson to interpret.
