When an investor finds that ideal investment, they have probably spent hours searching and viewing many properties, together with visiting several management agents to fully understand what financial returns they can expect after all the costs of getting the property upgraded to a safe standard. They focus on net yield.

Impartial conveyancers

Duncan Pattinson knows all about buy-to-let investment, as he used to be MD of a large buy-to-let business. He realised that what buy-to-let investors needed was a conveyancing comparison and solicitor-finder service. So many property developers and sellers of stock were stipluating that the investor had to use their nominated solicitor – hardly impartial!

Conveyancing Comparison Service for Buy-to-Let Investors

We Help You Too Ltd manages the Homebuyer Conveyancing panel, a panel that has grown over the past three years. Some 120-plus conveyancing solicitors are members, with additional solicitors joining each week.

Online conveyancing quotes

Buy-to-let investors can budget for their conveyancing costs by going online to the Homebuyer Conveyancing comparison website: http://www.homebuyerconveyancing.com. They can view and compare conveyancing quotes in just one search, without entering any personal details. They can filter their search by price, location and by mortgage lender. When ready, they can take a conveyancing quote away and book a timed call from their chosen conveyancing solicitor or licensed conveyancer to discuss their quote – straightforward, efficient and without obligation to instruct.

The conveyancing quotes fully detail their conveyancing fees and disbursements costs, and detail any applicable Stamp Duty Land Tax due to the investor buying an additional property.

Where experience matters

What is special about this particular service is that each purchase quote uses a comprehensive search pack that is under £200 and covers England and Wales. This enables investors to compare conveyancing quotes with no hidden fees or costs. They can even choose an option to add Exchange Insurance within their conveyancing quotes. If the investor is buying a new build, then a new build search pack is used, which is considerably cheaper. The savings are simply passed on to the investor.

The solicitors order the search pack from Onesearch Direct. Where Experience Matters is its strap-line. It also has a suite of other searches that can fast-track the search process if required.

Customer charter

It pays to compare competitive national conveyancing quotes from a conveyancing panel that is focused on the customer. Cheaper pricing is due to where the solicitor is located and is not a reflection of service. Each Homebuyer Conveyancing member is signed up to a customer charter.

Improving the conveyancing process

Duncan has a backgroung in improving process and, as such, this determination is self-evident, with a few additional improvements coming soon. The software and panel provides the much needed hands-off service that a buy-to-let investor needs when finding an independent solicitor at a price they can afford.
