    Online solicitor 15th Sep 19 at 11:20 AM
    I am considering changing my solicitor.

    My wife and I (mid/late70yrs) have infrequent use of a solicitor.

    We need to consider instructing a solicitor/legal advisor for family matters wills, Power of Attorney etc etc and a self build 47 plot/s housing development we are in the process of marketing, contract advise, conveyancing etc etc.

    Is an online solicitor/legal advisor a feasible consideration.

    Any recommendation/s for an online solicitor would be welcome.

    Best Regards

    You will be better off with a face to face solicitor, as any problems you can see them, discuss any issues / concerns.

    I personally wouldn't do a will / POA via an online company.

    Is there any reason you want someone online?

    Oooh I'd be very careful.
    I think... first & foremost you need to find the solicitor that you would like to deal with.
    Do all your research
    Then, after a face to face consultation, ask the solicitor if they would be willing to communicate online
    I'm sure they would. In fact I'm very sure they would!
    Dont just type into google that you're looking for an online solicitor
    They get paid like loads of money, so I'm sure if they had to do the odd house call they wouldn't mind.
    I'd stay as local as you can. Make em work for it though!
    Show em who's boss from the beginning.
    47 plots? Wow.
    Smile... It'll confuse em.
