For those of you that have several house moves under your belt you might agree that dealing with some solicitors or conveyancers can be character building experience shall we say? Despite technical advances in communication they are an sector of society that clings like limpets to conventional communication avenues, namely Postal services. Fortunately the Solicitor recommended by our Estate Agent for this particular move is a refreshing break from that norm.
This firm use text messages, phones and e-mail to keep us up dated. I have had very little chasing to do for a change but I was on the phone yesterday chasing the 'other side' to chase their solicitor for a missing transfer document, whatever that is.
We are anticipating a call today that will have us haring off to Sleaford to sign contracts in advance of an exchange this afternoon or Monday. Everything is in train for a move next Thursday and given the present economic environment we are very aware of how lucky we are to be able to tick this box on our move onto a boat plan.
