An SRA (Solicitors Regulation Authority) study has just been released which shows that only 6% of house buyers choose the cheapest solicitors when looking to instruct a law firm.

It also identified that it was the law firm’s reputation which they found to be the most important thing when choosing who will deal with their legal matters when buying a house. Almost 75% chose a conveyancer on the basis of a recommendation from an acquaintance or intermediary.

The research, titled ‘Price transparency in the legal services market’, shows the process people go through to choose their solicitor. Employing any legal service can involve a considerable financial investment so it is expected that people should do their research and shop around before committing to a law firm.

This is all good news for us at GA Solicitors as we believe that choosing the right firm is incredibly important. Picking a firm on a whim or based solely on price could end up with costly consequences and much more stress in the longer term.

GA Solicitors has been established for more than 200 years and was named as not only the best conveyancing firm in the South and South West, but the best conveyancing firm in the whole of the UK at the 2017 LFS awards.

If that’s not enough to convince you of our unrivalled reputation then you can be further reassured to know that we are accredited by Lexcel and also the  Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS).

The firm has been ranked in the prestigious Chambers and Partners UK guide for the last four consecutive years and you can also check out our fantastic reviews on Google and Facebook.
