    When Do I Appoint a Conveyancing Solicitor?

    You will need the details of your conveyancing solicitor once you have agreed a purchase price and placed a deposit with an auctioneer. This booking deposit is refundable until you sign the Contracts.

    At this stage, your solicitors details are given to the auctioneer and your lending institution. To speed up this process it is worth having instructed your solicitor before paying the booking deposit.
