HDB provides legal services when you buy or sell an HDB flat or refinance your HDB loan. But if you are engaging a private lawyer to act on your behalf, what should you look out for?
3 Helpful Tips in Choosing the Right Lawyer
Check thoroughly on the quality and trustworthiness of the law firm. Ensure that the conveyancing lawyer conducts the completion of all mandatory filings and searches.
Research the firm’s reputation online such as their history of poor service. Err on the side of caution.
2. Bank-impanelled law firm
Banks have a strict empanelment process. Don’t choose the law firm based on price, only to find out later that it is not part of the bank’s panel.
Find a law firm that’s on the board of most banks so you may easily switch banks later when you refinance.
The law firm must be prompt in replying to your queries and processing your documents, else, this will lead to a delay of the completion of Sale or Purchase.
Ensure that the conveyancing lawyer guides you in every document and advise you with further actions should there be any complications.
