What to look for in a conveyancer

You’ve decided that you are making a property transaction so therefore you will need a conveyancer. However, you are unsure what actually makes one conveyancer better than another – what do you do? The most important thing is to do your own research, but there are a few things you need to keep in mind whilst you do this, outlined by our team at the ONP Group below.

Qualifications and Experience

Before continuing with a conveyancer, ensure that the firm is properly licenced and meets all the requirements that you need from one, and has all the experience that you require regarding your case. Using a firm with a lot of experience will mean that they will have likely dealt with the legal issues surrounding your case in the past and make the process much easier for you. They will have the right advice when you need it.

Great Communications Skills

If you are using a conveyancer for the first time, the process can appear to be confusing and complicated, and a great communicator can bring peace of mind. A great conveyancer will inform you what is happening with your case every step of the way, ensuring you know exactly what is going on. They will listen to your concerns and thoughts whilst also presenting their answers in a way that isn’t convoluted. At the ONP Group, we pride ourselves on our communication and will always ensure that we maintain the best possible relationships with our clients. We know that phone calls are not always convenient.

So there are other ways of keeping in contact with the ONP Group, such as our Digital Journey app and online case tracker, which enables our clients to stay informed every step of the way.


One of the most stressful parts of conveyancing can be having a conveyancer that isn’t accessible and easily contactable. You will want a conveyancer that you can reach at every important stage of the process, as using a conveyancer that doesn’t keep you updated at each step will only add anxiety to your case. We suggest reading online reviews beforehand on websites such as Trustpilot. The ONP Group’s Trustpilot profile shows the experience and communication skills of the team that work for us.

Problem Solving Skills

A good conveyancer will have great problem-solving skills, as the process will include uncovering problems and finding out the most effective way of solving them. They will look at a problem from every angle and make sure that the right decision is made. Trusting in the right conveyancer can make your case run as smoothly as possible.
