Also, 28% said they had only realised how high their conveyancing fees were going to be once it was too late.“We are living in an era where we are able to track our food deliveries and our parcels on our smart phones and rely heavily on reviews when choosing a restaurant or hotel,” says When You Move chief executive Simon Bath (left).“Why aren’t we doing the same for the most important transaction of our lives?”When the Watford-based company was launched two years ago it claimed to revolutionise the conveyancing process by giving agents, solicitors and home movers full visibility of the conveyancing process.It also claimed that many agents believe some conveyancers are too slow and fail to keep those involves in a house sale up to date with the latest information.simon bath conveyancing estate agents When You Move January 21, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
