Should I use a Kirkwall solicitor for my conveyancing?

There's no real need to use a solicitor located in Kirkwall to do your conveyancing. Your whole case can be managed efficiently by post, email and telephone.

Why use a Kirkwall Estate Agent?

There is a recent trend of Kirkwall home-owners trying to sell their own properties. Many websites now offer services to assist with this, but at, we still believe there is great value in using the services of a good local estate agent to market and sell your property.

Here are some points to consider when deciding whether to find an estate agent to help you market and sell or let your property.

The Right Value

A Kirkwall-based estate agent will know the sensible marketing value of a property such as yours, located in your area of Kirkwall.

Quality Marketing

A good Kirkwall estate agent will be an expert at marketing your property. They will know how to advertise your property in all the right places. Ideally your Kirkwall property needs as much exposure as possible, to maximise interest from potential buyers. Usually an agent will advertise your property on property portals, such as Rightmove, and in your local or Kirkwall property post. Other forms of marketing include window cards, handouts, mail-shots and open-house days. Remember, the frequency and quality of the content of the advertising is just as important as where it appears.


A good estate agent in Kirkwall will be able to advise you on how to best present your property to potential purchasers.


Although you may be confident that you're more than capable of managing the sale of your own property, the truth of the matter is that many of us have precious little spare time. Kirkwall applicants will not appreciate having to arrange viewings around your schedule. In all likelihood you will achieve a faster sale if you use a good Kirkwall estate agent.

Selling Tips

Weed the gardenWeed the garden - One of the first things a potential buyer will see when they arrive at your property is the garden. If the garden is ragged then it will be a bad start, and make the wrong first impression. Pick up litter, cut the lawn and pull / kill any weeds that are growing in or around the path or patio areas. Consider hiring a pressure washer to clean up your path if it's looking really grubby.

Make some coffeeMake some coffee - Most people love the smell of brewing coffee, even if they don't like to drink it. Consider putting on some fresh coffee just before a viewing, it's sure to create a welcoming odour for those Kirkwall viewers!

Do Simple JobsDo Simple Jobs - Are you trying to sell property in Kirkwall? If so, you may want to take a good, objective look around. How many small, simple jobs are there that you haven't bothered getting around to doing? The problem is that we become blind to the small flaws after a while (apart from the ones that annoy us), whereas an observant newcomer to your home will spot them straight away. We're talking about curling wall-paper, or borders just need sticking down; Marks on walls, that need wiping off; Dead flies or dust on a lamp-shade; Dirty windows; Old screw-holes in walls that need filling and touching up. Now is the time to put a day aside to do these little jobs, and help achieve the best price for you property.

Become Energy EfficientMake your home energy Efficient - If you are selling your home then Kirkwall purchasers will be hunting for homes with energy efficiency, as these homes will be cheaper to run, and faster to sell . A knowledgeable Kirkwall estate agent should be able to advise you on this matter and point you in the right direction for upgrading your property to be increasingly energy saving. It is a requirement that an energy assessor will come and assess your home for a current and future potential Energy Efficiency Rating and an current and achievable Environmental (CO2) Impact Score. This certification is needed prior to taking your property to the market.

Food For Thought

Check Out Their Website
When you are researching Kirkwall estate agents it is definitely worthwhile taking a good look at each one's website. There are some queries to ask : Just how easy is the estate agent’s website to locate in a search engine query? Is it well presented in a professional and modern fashion? Is it rich with information? can you search for properties easily? Are the property particulars written up in a clear and readable style, in good English? An agent’s website can tell you a lot about the standard of service you can expect from them.
Advice For Buyers
Any estate agent in Kirkwall can boast of a large number of potential buyers in their database but you must establish what actions are taken to qualify those buyers as suitable persons to view and proceed to purchase your property. Many applicants could register a mild interest in your home however a well trained estate agent can pick out the buyers who have a real requirement to move and should therefore be showing serious interest in looking at your property.

Birchall Blackburn Law (BB Legal Ltd)

Very good. I was a bit worried about using a solicitor so far from the property I was buying but it really all went very well. The only problem was with the other sides solicitor. Client, BN21. Rating: rating: 5 stars August, 2011

Birchall Blackburn Law (BB Legal Ltd)

I would recommend Bicrhall Blackburn to others, indeed I already have, my conveyancer (Luisa) did most of the work she was always helpful and efficient despite attempts by the purchasers solicitor to be arrogant and obstructive. I rate the fact that the cahrges remained as agreed despite the levels of effort that became necessary to complete the transaction. Mark the solicitor was not involved to teh same degree but when I needed to deal with him he was very helpful. So despite the delays and the aggravation of the transaction I would rate the firm very highly. Thom Telford. Client, TQ9 7. Rating: rating: 5 stars August, 2012
