Diary Of A High Street Conveyancer – Monday May 18
As days disappear and the old days really do seem like the good old days, I think it is a good opportunity to think about how conveyancing is done. And take the time to reassess our office processes and how we can make life better not only for each other but for our clients . I know that I have mentioned this before, but those that do conveyancing are a community – like other professions, we can have conversations and those that don’t know what we do will have no idea what we are talking about; those phrases and expressions we use without even having to think about the meaning; we just know the difference between tenants in common and joint tenants, we know what a CoT is , we know what Replies to Reqs look like!
So as a community, I believe that we need to make the future better in the conveyancing world; work together, speak to each other, get processes in place which make life better. I am sure that we have all enjoyed the taste of the freedom of not being chained to the office desk as much , so let that continue. Work hard but enjoy life. Enjoy conveyancing. Think of the thrill of that first time buyer on the day she picks up her keys from the agents and opens the front door to her new home for the first time. Think of the excitement of the young couple as they buy their love nest. What better feeling could there be in a job than being responsible for the happiness of another person. I have always liked the feeling at four o’clock on a Friday afternoon when I know that my clients have moved to their dream house.
Yes, I know that we all have transactions that do not go smoothly on the day of completion, but we can handle that and we are trained to do that and hopefully provide the minimum of stress to the client by remaining calm and professional . Enjoy conveyancing – after all of these years on the High Street, I could not think of doing anything else.
You can only become truly accomplished at something you love
