If you have a solicitor that you have used in the past and were happy with and purchasing or selling elsewhere in the country then just use the solicitor you've used in the past, you don't need to employ a "local" solicitor.

You dont need to use a solicitor from the area or county your buying in. Its only paper work that can be done from anywhere. If you find a solicitor is good in kerry or roscommon for example no reason not to us to buy a property in dublin. There is no great mystery on the law side of buying a property

Correct but sometimes experience in certain nuances of conveying property is essential. Not many properties in Kerry would be leasehold title whereas in Dublin many are. In that situation I would much prefer have a solicitor that deals with leaseholds all the time rather than one who hasnt dealt with one in years. The opposite can often be true too -if you were buying farmland in Kerry and problems with title arose a country solicitor would tend to be better versed than a city based one.

The law is the law. Doesnt matter. They will read up on any points they dont know. There's nothing special with law work. It will be replaced to a large extent over the next few years with AI.

All solicitors are NOT the same. There are cases where conveyancing is badly screwed up and it takes more than a decade to resolve.

My point isnt about reading up on points of law, it is about a solicitor knowing how the law works in specific circumstances and that is what a good experienced solicitor brings to the table.

Not all solicitors are created equally yet you are arguing that no matter what one you use the outcome will be the same. Well unfortunately that is not true, using a solicitor who is not experienced in what they are doing can land you in a whole world of trouble. That is why I am saying that using a Kerry solicitor to process the purchase of a property with a complex leasehold title in Dublin is not good advice. To a good Dublin solicitor leasehold titles will be bread and butter, to a good Kerry solicitor they may never have even transacted one before and no amount of reading up will mitigate the potential land mines along the way.
