The average Yorkshire home currently takes up to 25 weeks from the time it is put on the market to completion, meaning that for anyone wanting to move into a new home by Christmas, there is no time to waste.
Moving home can be a complex, lengthy and often stressful process. For the vast majority of people, conveyancing – the legal side of the move – is a minefield. With more home movers taking greater control of how they sell or buy their homes, we’re encouraging home movers to think twice about who they enlist to handle the legal aspect of their move.
Here at Enact, we use innovative new tools to make the legal process for home movers smoother and hassle-free. Our clients can track progress using our market-leading online Case Tracker portal.
Case Tracker enables our clients to complete paperwork online, upload and share documents with us and communicate with their dedicated case handler through secure messaging, or even Skype, at a convenient time for them.
Charlotte Local, Director of Conveyancing Operations at Enact, said: “With the spring housing market on the move and homes sales in Yorkshire and the Humber now taking an average of 25 weeks to complete, those wanting to move in time for Christmas need to act fast.
“Every home mover will need a conveyancer, but who they choose to manage the legal side of their move is up to them. Conveyancing is a necessary process in both buying or selling property, but most people go into a house move knowing little or nothing about the process or what to expect. Who you choose and how they work can have a huge impact on the speed and efficiency of a move.”
A licensed conveyancer is a qualified, professional property lawyer who works on behalf of clients buying or selling property, help them to meet all legal obligations so their rights are protected during the transaction. We are the largest direct conveyancing company in England and Wales, providing a conveyancing service home movers can rely on.
Charlotte added: “If you are buying a home, we start work right away. If you’re selling, we start the moment your property is on the market. We know that moving house can be stressful, so we make sure we do everything we can to make the conveyancing process as easy and efficient as possible. This includes customer-first services with transparent processes, fixed fees and a 24/7 communication tool. We do more than just conveyancing, we’ll manage your move, providing a service tailored to you, not us.
“We want to keep the legal stuff simple, smooth and stress-free, so having contact outside standard office hours can make things a lot easier, particularly when they can choose to communicate via phone, text message, post or Skype. We really do aim to work around our clients’ lifestyles.”

Recent Enact client, Ian Wilkinson, said: “The big misconception when selling a property is that people think you need to employ a solicitor to handle the legal side of your sale or purchase. The reality is, you don’t! A huge benefit of using a professional conveyancing company is that they will keep things moving and progress the whole process more quickly.
“I would recommend Enact without hesitation. I have used them a number of times in the last 10 years and they always act in such a courteous and professional manner, particularly at times when I become frustrated with the lack of action or progress from the conveyancers they are dealing with.
“Enact’s approach delivers the speediest and best results on these occasions, reducing a lot of the potential stress and anxieties that come with buying or selling property.
“They have always provided a speedy, informative and comprehensive service. The online system gives easy access to information, allows you to download documents, track the progress of your purchase and contact your account manager.
“The trustworthy and reliable service gives you confidence your transactions are in professional hands, which means you can relax knowing things are progressing and should issues arise or problems occur you will be informed and receive clear explanations and options on the way forward,” Mr Wilkinson said.
We help thousands of people to move home each year, handling on average one in every four remortgage conveyancing transactions. Since opening its doors in 2000, Enact has helped over 1.2 million customers.
