Things to Consider Before Hiring a Conveyancing Lawyer

Avoid an overburdened individual

Never go for a conveyancing solicitor who seems overburdened with work. Such an attorney will not be able to focus on the intricate details related to your case.

Conduct in-depth research about the conveyancer before hire

It is important to do extensive research before you decide to hire a conveyancing lawyer. For example, you should look at property forums to gain detailed insight about experts in the field of property law.

The hired solicitor should be an expert in drafting

Experience is a mandatory element to consider when you hire a conveyancing solicitor. Your hired solicitor should hold expertise in dealing with conveyancing documents and drafts.  The best approach is you should request the conveyancer to show you his portfolio before the hire.

The conveyancer should be willing to communicate all the details

Your conveyancer should be willing to understand that he will need to explain the complex jargon to you because it is your money that is on the line. If he feels that it is difficult to communicate the complexities to you, then it is time to look for someone else.

The most important thing is that your solicitor should not keep you in the dark. He should be ready to communicate all the necessary details related to the purchase of the house because this is your right.

Home Buying will become easy when you have reliable help so contact a dependable conveyancer right away. Ideally, you should hire the conveyancer before you sign any contract. He will look at your contract details before you sign the documents.

This way the seller cannot take advantage of your technical ignorance when it comes to property law. If you want things to go smoothly, then you should communicate all your concerns to your conveyancer. A professional will answer your queries at the earliest.

This way the property purchase and transfer process is bound to go smoothly and you will buy your peace of mind as well.

Tuna Pasta Salad – Slimming World Buffet

Welcome to day 6 of my 24 days of Slimming World Christmas Buffet Recipes. Today’s recipe is a Slimming World style tuna pasta salad.

Slimming World Tuna Pasta Salad Buffet Recipe

This can be made a day ahead and kept in the fridge. Any of your favourite salad vegetables can be added. I like onion in my salad but Ant’s not keen on raw onion so we tend to leave it out.
Quantities aren’t very important with this recipe. You can use the vegetables to bulk it out to make it big enough to feed all of your guests.
The quantities I used served 4 of us for 2 main meals.

Tuna Pasta Salad


  • 3 cans tuna in brine or spring water
  • 3 sticks celery, chopped
  • A pack of cherry tomatoes, halved
  • Cucumber, chopped
  • A medium red onion, peeled and chopped
  • A tin of sweetcorn
  • Bunch of spring onions, chopped
  • 6 tablespoons Hellman’s extra light mayo (half a syn per tablespoon)
  • 300g pasta shapes
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Cook the pasta according to the pack instructions
  2. While the pasta is cooking, drain the tuna and empty into a big salad bowl
  3. Add the celery, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, red onion, sweetcorn and spring onions to the tuna. Mix well
  4. Stir in the mayo and mix well.
  5. When the pasta has cooked, allow to cool before adding to the tuna and vegetables. I leave the pasta in the water while it’s cooling so it doesn’t stick together.
  6. Mix the pasta into the tuna and mayo mixture and serve.

Tomorrow’s recipe is lamb koftas with a mint yogurt dip.

Please note: I’ve lost 7 and a half stone with Slimming World and kept it off for four years, however, I’m not a Slimming World consultant. I haven’t been trained and I’m not affiliated with Slimming World so please check all your own syn values.
