Why There is a Conveyancer Shortage & Completion Takes Forever
Experts are leaving the profession in droves, no longer prepared to be treated with a total lack of respect and courtesy. No one wants to be constantly chased and criticised for issues outside of their control.
Conveyancing is hugely pressured, and Conveyancers are frequently shouted at and abused. But when you lose the expertise is it any wonder timescales increase massively.
The experts in the field, who can do it quickly and properly, are dwindling and no wonder! How do you recruit new staff to a vilified profession? What is the incentive to join or train for that?
It is a self-perpetuating cycle. Public perception needs to change. Work with us NOT against us. We all want the same thing.
If we cannot sign off on the file, then it WILL NOT complete. Demanding we complete because a completion date is agreed will not be successful. Not because we are trying to be awkward but because we do not want to be struck off for negligence or removed from the lender's panel. We cannot afford to proceed regardless of due diligence.
We can only sign off when we can certify the property has good title and we do not see any issues for resale or remortgage which affect property value. Why would you want it any other way?
If we are not there yet end of. Abusing your Conveyancer won't get you there.
