With house prices across the UK continuing to rise, we can also report a record increase in the number of people they have helped buy or sell their home in the past year, both encouraging signs that the UK housing market is improving.

Speaking about the boost in enquiries, Sarah Brooks, Residential Conveyancing Partner at Warner Goodman LLP, said “A recent survey conducted by SearchFlow showed that conveyancers in the UK have seen their workload increase by 15%, while we have bucked the trend and  seen a staggering 47% increase in the last two years.  This is extremely encouraging as it shows that confidence in the housing market is returning with more people buying or selling their homes, including a rise in first time buyers.  It’s also hugely rewarding for us as a firm as we have made a variety of changes within the last year such as an online payment facility.  This, in conjunction with our online tracking for clients and agents, means we can offer a high level of service, flexibility and transparency for each transaction.  It’s a great achievement for us that these changes have had the impact that we were hoping for.

“While there is still some uncertainty and concern about the future of the property market, we are confident that certainly in Hampshire we will continue to see the market, and the local economy improve,” concludes Sarah.
