I am looking for the cheapest conveyancing solicitors. as we are on a budget.


The confusion over this topic affects many property buyers and sellers who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process, and many conveyancers claim to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes. However extra fees are frequently hidden in the terms and conditions which property buyers and sellers may have not read carefully Charges listed in terms of engagement should be fair. The online quote calculator can generate an accurate statement of the legal fees for the property you plan to buy.


Should I select a firm of solicitors referred by the local agent?


Both agents and mortgage brokers may endorse a solicitor. These referrals should be compared against alternatives, such as local solicitors, or firms found online, as the agent may recommend the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the best value for you.


Should we get a chancel search if I plan to purchase in the parish of Coulsdon, near Dorking?


Your lawyer may suggest a chancel search. Through some Parochial Church Councils have exercised their right to charge chancel repairs on the current owners, there is no guarantee that a parish where repair costs have not

been paid before, that this will not continue to be so. For property in the parish of Coulsdon, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.


Do I need a property survey?


It is highly recommended that buyers book a building survey when you plan to buy in Dorking. Many defects can affect a property. These can include insect infestation, and these will not be addressed by your conveyancing solicitor.


Following recent news about the Met Office projecting more intense rainfall, I am questioning if flood risk searches won't be detailed enough?


Conveyancing searches conducted by the Dorking conveyancer will also include a more thorough search (Landmark) if required.

If you remain still nervous you could try to approach a neighbour of the property or local Surrey flood repair builder, such as: Bright Outlook, 9 Dukes Ride, Holmwood Park, Dorking, RH5 4TY Tel: 01306 742008.


When in the conveyancing process should we instruct a conveyancer?


With a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, earlier is preferable, as conveyancing involves a number of tasks which may begin immediately. Instructing your solicitor sooner for a purchase means that your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed, or, if you are selling a property, paperwork can be prepared, even before a buyer is found.


I have a reasonable understanding of doing ones own conveyancing when selling a flat - Might it be foolish to take care of the legal work ourselves?


Technically there are no reasons why a buyer cannot handle the bulk of the legal process on your own. However, a conveyancing solicitor in Dorking handles a large array of assignments ranging from drafting contracts or interpreting planning contraventions most of which require experience.


What kind of inquiry as respects the risk of local flooding around Surrey will a lawyer in Dorking advise on a Sixties house I am intending to purchase?


A qualified lawyer makes an application for formal conveyancing searches that will include Dorking flood risk area data.
