The Solicitor Finder Glossary

Moving house is often counted as one of the most stressful periods in our lives – the hours of research, the negotiating, the legal jargon, not to mention the actual move itself. But while we’re talking of legal jargon, the conveyancing process could at least be made a tiny bit easier if we understood what our solicitor was even saying, which is why we’ve compiled an in-depth conveyancing glossary for you to refer back to when you’re confused over all those complicate legal terms.
