We are very protective of Harrison Murray's and The Nottingham’s good name and reputation, so we have 'hand picked' law firms that we know will deliver a first-class service. We have many years of experience in dealing with property sales and purchases and have selected the best regional law firms who have agreed to do all they can to ensure your transaction proceeds as quickly and smoothly as possible.
No legal fees to pay if the sale or purchase fails to complete
You no longer have to worry about a hefty legal bill if your sale or purchase does not proceed to completion because the firms on our panel have agreed not to charge for their legal fees in such an event. This does exclude fixed disbursements, such as searches and the cost of any additional work which you may have agreed separately with the firm.
We have negotiated sensible fees with our law firms so you can be sure you are not paying over the odds and that there will be no nasty surprises when you get the final bill. All charges are made clear and in writing before you accept the quotation. They may not be the cheapest in town but experience has taught us that cheapest is not usually best. We have set the fees so that every one of our law firms puts competent staff on the case and delivers a thoroughly professional and swift service.
Dedicated customer care
We have a centralised Customer Care Centre. They will initially discuss your sale or purchase requirements and then arrange for a written quotation. You are free to ask any questions or clarify anything you do not understand before committing. When you want to proceed we instruct the law firm through an online system to streamline and accelerate the whole process. It is a well known fact that the longer a case takes to complete the more chance of the seller or buyer withdrawing from the transaction.
Online case tracking
By using one of our partner law firms you are given free-of-charge access to the online case tracking service. Each time progress is made on your case, you will receive an automatic email alert. With a unique log-in and password you will be able to access full details of how your sale or purchase is proceeding at any time of the day or night. The case tracking shows each stage of the conveyancing process and you will also be able to see the notes made by the law firm staff detailing what they are doing.
You won't need to visit the conveyancer's office for meetings, leaving more of your time free to organise your move.
* The conveyancers are external firms that would act on your behalf
Frequently asked questions
Do I need to choose a solicitor straight away?
Although it is not essential it is always advisable to be legally prepared as soon as possible. This will enable you to act quickly when you have found a buyer or the house of your dreams. There is a minimal cost to yourself, which is refundable should the transaction not proceed and is discounted from the final bill on completion. It's one less thing to arrange, meaning a faster transaction and a faster move!
If I have a problem with the law firm will Harrison Murray help me?
Yes, we certainly will. You can call the Customer Care Centre and they will help to deal with any problems in the unlikely event that something is not to your satisfaction.
Do I have to use a Harrison Murray law firm?
No, of course not. You are completely free to choose any firm you wish but please remember that many firms do not operate a no completion – no legal fee policy and may not disclose extra charges in their headline quotation. You should also bear in mind that the specialist property professionals within the law firms on the Harrison Murray panel have pledged to put Harrison Murray clients at the top of their priority list and this alone could be the factor that sees your sale or purchase complete successfully.
Will there be any other legal costs?
There are no legal fees in addition to those quoted at the outset unless they are agreed separately with you by the law firm. This would only occur if unforeseen problems made it necessary for the firm to carry out additional work and would not be incurred without your prior agreement. Disbursement costs such as buying searches will be charged in addition to the fees and will be confirmed at the time of quotation.
This all sounds very good. What do I do next?
