Great comment from a female solicitor who is also trying to sell her house at the moment. She was interviewed as part of a piece on effect of Stamp Duty reductions.
‘Conveyancing has dried up for the last year, that was a lot of my business’
I wonder how many more of these solicitors who were swimming naked and merely rubberstamping property transactions for 5k a pop are out there?? now that the party is over what are they going to do??
Also’ house valued at 735k last year by TWO auctioneers (so it must have been right ) now worth 595k a snip!!
I nearly felt like crying into my cornflakes but I managed to regain control of myself.
