I need to find a cheap solicitor for purchasing a residence. because we are on a limited budget.


Many solicitors claim to offer cheap conveyancing quotes, however extra costs can inflate your solicitor's invoice. A quote must also state any disbursements.Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


Why does the purchase conveyancing process have so many delays? Isn't it a simple matter of filing paperwork?


The legal work undertaken to transfer property in Barkingside can suffer all manner of setbacks. We seek to reduce the cost of these delays whenever it is feasible.

  • keeping in regular contact with your solicitor
  • quickly answering your solicitor's questions (by email if possible)
  • confirming your mortgage offer


What would the fees for conveyancing searches total?


Conveyancing searches ranges in cost, depending on the specific searches which have been ordered. Less common searches, used in addition to a standard bundle, include a British waterways search.


Should we opt for the firm of solicitors used by my agent?


Many estate agents have arrangements with solicitors whereby they refer work. These referrals should be compared against alternatives, such as local solicitors, or firms found online, as there is a risk that an agent may choose the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the best value for you.


Will the Barkingside property solicitor carry out any conveyancing searches on the London thirties terraced flat I am buying?


If obtaining a mortgage the lender expects at least specific searches, including - Local Authority Search, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environment Search and perhaps area-specific searches, which may include a Bankruptcy Search (K16).
