Why Home buyers in Leeds Should Use a Local Conveyancer

August 31 2018

For home buyers in Leeds and surrounding areas, having an offer accepted on a house is a big step in the house buying process. However, those who have been through it before will understand this is not the final step on the journey. Choosing the right conveyancer can also be time consuming. At Grahame Stowe-Bateson, we believe that choosing a local conveyancer has several benefits that will make the process much quicker and easier.

       Bespoke Touch

Dealing with a conveyancer over the phone and by email can make for an incredibly impersonal service. The drawbacks of this include miscommunications, long response times, and difficulty in building a rapport with the company you have chosen. In addition to this, using a conveyancer outside of the local region can make it difficult to organise meetings, as it can involve a long drive and inconvenience.


Similarly, to where personal touch is lost through using a conveyancer outside of your locality, the convenience of being able to visit during a lunch break or after work is also lost. We have offices in Leeds City Centre, Middleton, Bramley and Harrogate, so there will always be a branch you can visit to speak to a member of our team face to face.

Local knowledge

Knowing the area can have a huge impact on the advice and expertise you receive from a conveyancer. With a history of operating in Leeds and offices in diverse sections of the region, our team will have plenty of knowledge to offer. This can be especially helpful for those who are new to the North and West Yorkshire area and perhaps don’t know it too well.

Fraud prevention

Being able to meet face-to-face with your conveyancer means that you will essentially be able to oversee all aspects of communication, data, and funds that are transferred. It is important to be savvy when buying a house, so having control of all your documents and being able to discuss issues as and when you need to with a qualified legal professional will again create a more seamless conveyancing process.

Other legal services

By completing the transaction of buying a house legally, safely and to your content, you will have developed the trust and rapport with a trusted local conveyancer. This bodes well for the future should you ever decided to sell your house or require any other legal services. Grahame Stowe-Bateson offer conveyancing amongst several other legal services in Leeds and Harrogate, such as wills and probate, family law and criminal law.
