say positive signs are beginning to show for UK conveyancing firms as the number of houses changing hands jumped by 17% in July 2009.

Nathan Jones, spokesman for said:

“There are now positive signs for conveyancing firms in the UK; reports this week from HM Revenue and Customs that the number of houses exchanging hands increased by 17% in July this year and the UK‘s biggest property web site reporting good annual growth and a jump in it‘s advertising revenues.”

“I think we are starting to see the signs of a recovering housing market, weather this will be a long or short term recovery remains to be seen. Many industry experts are predicting another, sharp, downturn before a full market recovery can begin towards the end of 2010.”

“The most important factor for conveyancing solicitors has to be survival and if companies can make it through the next 12 24 months I‘m confident the market will pick up.”

“With more and more conveyancing firms exploring new forms of media like the internet it is vital that they embrace this technology and make it work cost effectively for them.”

“At we work to provide customers with a conveyancing quote in 10 seconds and deliver it to their email address. We work to a no completion no fee policy and there are no hidden extra costs.”

Nathan Jones added: “I am not saying that I think the UK property market will make a full recovery, back to the pre 2008 era, however we are seeing what some people like to refer to as ´new green shoots starting to appear‘ which is good news for every business involved in this sector.”
