How do I choose a solicitor?

Do you need a specialist solicitor used to bridging finance?

Yes. It’s essential.

If you don’t have a good solicitor the process will be extremely stressful and can even result in missing a deadline.

It’s essential your solicitor has experience of Bridging Finance and dealing with a lender’s solicitor as not all do.

Go to the Law Society website and you can search by postcode and then look at at their website to see if they have a specialist property arm. If they do call them and speak to the Department and find out how many bridging deals they do.

Quite often the lender will have a list of preferred solicitors who you can use.
