When messaging companies, are they responsive? Are they friendly? Do they sufficiently answer your questions? If you’re left waiting days for a reply, you might not be able to count on them in a crisis. Which can leave you feeling stuck.

Don’t be distracted by a flashy website. If communication is important to you, make sure their quality doesn’t stop at the tech and advertising.

For buyers: At Watermans Legal, we’re not shy about confronting the bigger issues. In March we spoke out on the Scottish Cladding Crisis, forming a panel of experts to provide a free online seminar to talk through the issues and solutions. We have also spilt the tips and tricks of first time buying as we hosted a First Time Buyers Seminar in April. Our staff believe in being not only knowledgeable but sharing that information with our clients.

When selecting your Solicitor Estate Agent, you can view companies’ social media and scroll through their posts to see the information that they are sharing to the public.

Additionally, a company’s local knowledge is vital. A proactive Solicitor Estate Agents should provide market research on properties in the area to give you the best insight into prices, the neighbourhood, and local amenities. A good Estate Agent will work with your budget and will create a worthy strategy for buying or selling a home.
