Conveyancing has been a huge bugbear for advisers in recent years. A report by FTAdviser in December last year found that satisfaction with service levels had fallen over the preceeding two years.

At the time, Helix Financial Partners managing partner, Adam Stiles added that conveyancing firms also had felt the knock-on effect.

Stiles told FTAdviser: "Many of these conveyancing firms can't keep up with the amount of work, do not reply to any form of communication, and in many cases show little empathy in the financial plight of the borrower in making sure deals go through before the offer runs out."
