    The importance of hiring a property Solicitor in Malaysia

    While it’s important to find a credible real estate agent who can help you to find a suitable property, it’s equally important to find a local Solicitor who can help you through the conveyancing process.

    Sure, Malaysia is one of the most foreign-friendly in Asia when it comes to buying property, but there are still many pitfalls you can come across. The Solicitor normally charges you with a fixed fee, instead of pocketing a commission, which reduces the risks that they will try to prop up the purchase price.

    Hiring a Solicitor is valuable as they can help you with a number of items, for example, registering the property in your name, draft or review contracts, communicate with the seller, communicate with your bank and more.
