How do I get affordable conveyancing?


This catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors promote theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing'. However additional costs can increase your solicitor's invoice. Any additional charges listed in terms and conditions should be fair. They only apply in cases where your lawyer must complete unanticipated additional work for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

How long does it take for the conveyancing solicitor to accomplish all of the conveyancing work on the lower floor of period home we are purchasing in East Beckton?


Completion can take anywhere between a month and twelve weeks, which can depend on a number of things for example the speed of the seller's conveyancing solicitor, or whether the property is freehold or leasehold.


When should we find a solicitor?

The estate agent has referred a firm of solicitors. Will it be easier to instruct this solicitor?


It is not uncommon for agents to endorse a solicitor. These referrals must be compared with other local solicitors, or better-value firms found online, as an agent may select the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the best value for you.

In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.


What sort of flood plain searches regarding the potential risk of possible flooding to properties in Newham will the conveyancing solicitor in East Beckton actually conduct?
