Conveyancing in Bournemouth

Bournemouth is demographically quite interesting in that it is one of the few places in England where deaths exceed births. Bournemouth is traditionally a place where people retire and the aged population provides an explanation for the odd population trend. Despite this, the population of Bournemouth is increasing, mostly from influxes of retired persons and students and currently lies at around 165,000.

The centre of the town lies slightly inland with the commercial centre being The Square in Bournemouth. Conveyancing solicitors in this area are more likely to undertake commercial, rather than residential conveyancing. Bournemouth has a lot of residential property changing hands because of people buying retirement properties and then those properties passing under the terms of their will or under the rules of intestacy. Most of Bournemouth is affluent and as a result the deprived areas are few and far between; despite this, house prices do vary with seaside and central properties fetching more in Bournemouth than in other areas.

Conveyancing solicitors will often be recommended by your estate agent; however this will not necessarily be the best option for you. You should ensure that you contact a number of solicitors and gain an idea of price, how thoroughly they will look into the property and what previous customers have said about them. Contact Law can help you with this. In Bournemouth, conveyancing solicitors will be of varying qualities, though it is worth remembering that it is against the rules that govern solicitors to do anything that would create a bad public image for solicitors. Your solicitor must also be clear and honest about costs from the very start and if they are not then you should utilise the firm’s complaints procedure to attempt to remedy the problem.
