We need to find the cheapest conveyancing solicitors. What are the risks?


The confusion over this issue catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many property lawyers claim to offer cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately extra charges may be added into the terms that unknowing homeowners have not reviewed We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.


Should I get a chancel search if we are purchasing in Ashby de la Zouch by a parsonage?

I am on a very small budget , Can doing the conveyancing on a DIY basis without the help of a Ashby de la Zouch conveyancer save any cash?

professional indemnity insurance that every solicitors are compelled to be in possession of.


How can we protect ourselves from getting gazumped?


This occurs when the 1st buyer's offer is accepted, and then rejected, by the property owner, opting instead for another buyer's offer. Though gazumping is uncommon when property prices are falling, there is still a risk. The first step in reducing the chance that gazumping will effect you is to instruct a law firm early, and even before acceptance of an offer.


Do we need to select a property solicitor used by my local agent?


It is commonplace for estate agents to recommend a solicitors firm, however, such referrals must be compared with other local solicitors, or better-value firms found online, as there is a risk that the agent may suggest the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.
