We need a low cost conveyancing estimate. How do we get a quote?


The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many buyers paying out more than they anticipated in the end. Many property lawyers offer cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional costs are often hiding in the terms of engagement. Extra fees found in terms of engagement needs to be fair. They come into force only if your solicitor is required to complete extra work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid should be included on a Dore conveyancing quote


Do your property lawyers handle the conveyancing for auction properties in Dore?


Our solicitors and licensed conveyancers in Dore regularly do the legal work for buyers and sellers at auction. Lawyers strongly recommend buyers to select their conveyancing lawyer before the property auction date to allow enough time for a full report.

After the date of the auction your lawyer is absolutely prepared for completing the purchase within a as tight time frame as usually required by the auction conditions.


The estate agent has referred a property lawyer. Will it be cheaper to use this solicitor?


It is common for agents to recommend a law firm to handle your conveyancing. Such referrals must be carefully considered, as an agent may select whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the law firm with the best reputation.


What do searches mean?


These searches are questions carried out in the interest of the purchaser, such as a chancel search. Conveyancing searches refer specifically to legal facets of the purchase.


Regarding the serious flooding in York, Leeds and across Yorkshire, I am worried that property environmental searches might not be sufficient?


Environmental searches carried out by a Dore property lawyer should include a more thorough flood search if the risk warrants it.

You could always contact a close neighbour to get further local history.


We are interested in purchasing a residence in Dore. Are there any conservation areas?


With over eight thousand conservation areas throughout England, the areas around Dore include several areas of 'special architectural and historic interest' defined as protected. You may wish to contact the local authority for further information, but your conveyancing lawyer will investigate this in detail during the property transaction.


The Mortgage Works is our lender, what do we need to check?


When organising a mortgage, a mortgage provider will need legal work to be undertaken in relation to the mortgage. Buyers should consider that, in some cases, lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel'. Homeward Legal can act for all major UK mortgage lenders.
