Solicitors rail

The site - - sets out the perceived advantages of using a licensed conveyancer instead of a solicitor when buying or selling a home.

'A solicitor is a general legal practitioner, while a licensed conveyancer is a specialist who concentrates solely on dealing with property,' it says. 'Of course, if you know and trust a firm of solicitors in your local area, this is the obvious route for you. You may appreciate their local knowledge and personal service.

'But solicitors can be slow to respond and won't necessarily rate your property sale as their highest priority. Because licensed conveyancers do nothing but conveyancing, they have been able to streamline the process, which may give you a better service.'

The content was supplied by Lawpack, a legal self-help publisher that provides products for Tesco's online legal store.
