Everys Solicitors sign up to make house buying even easier

Everys Solicitors’ conveyancing team has signed a charter pledging to reach exchange of contracts in the shortest possible time.

A new partnership between the Exeter Estate Agents Association and a number of local solicitors, including Everys, aims to make the legal formalities involved in a transaction quick and hassle-free for those moving home.

The charter marks the culmination of three years of closer co-operation between property agents and solicitors in the city.

EEAA chairman James Baker, of Strutt & Parker, said: "This is just about having a rule book which both agents and solicitors have to comply with. If anyone has an issue they can ring us and know what we have committed to do. It's just another way of improving the service to our clients.”

The 13-point solicitors' charter sets out responsibilities including: replying to all correspondence maximum of two working days, but with a target of one working day; and ensuring all parties are aware of a target date for exchange of contracts as soon as possible and using all reasonable steps to achieve the date.

Mark Izzett, Everys’ head of property law, said: “We were happy to sign up to this charter as it puts the clients’ needs first at a time that can be very stressful whether you are buying or selling. This should speed up the process and edge us closer to the Association’s desired exchange period of a month.”
