Chains Are Starting To Complete Once Again


Today was particularly exciting – well in the world of a conveyancer it was! I had a chain complete!

I have only had one chain complete during lockdown and I had forgotten the wait for that email from the buyers’ solicitor to say that the monies were on their way, checking the client account to see when the monies arrived, repaying a mortgage and sending the monies on to the sellers’ solicitor. Not forgetting to call the client to say all was going well and how was their part of moving going, and then calling the sellers’ solicitor to confirm that the funds were on their way and did they have any idea when the seller would be leaving the house? And then calling the agents to say that the sale had completed.

A little like riding a bike, the process comes back to you and you remember instinctively what you need to do and when. And that thrill of knowing that you helped someone to move and that you helped them just that little bit to move their lives forward onto the next chapter. And all of this is done as quickly as you have done it so many times. You weren’t taught how to do it at school, not like reading, but you know what to do and how to do it to achieve the desired result. This is what conveyancers are good at – knowing what to do and when to do it, no matter what the chain and the transaction throws at you.

Education is what remains after one has forgotten everything one learned in school.
