How do we find low cost conveyancing in Edgware?


This matter catches out many property buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many firms purport to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing', but additional fees will be included in small print, left unread by preoccupied property buyers and sellers Any disbursements should be included on a conveyancing quote.

For a fast completion to buy a £678,000 residence, what do we need to do?


Finding a proactive property lawyer is essential to a fast transaction. Ask these questions when identifying your conveyancer:

  • Which communication methods do they use? Days can be wasted waiting for letters in the post which could be emailed or faxed.
  • Do they work on a 'no sale, no fee' basis?


The property in Edgware being bought is on a ex-industrial use land. What should we do regarding nickel (Ni) topsoil contamination?


Metal contamination may have occurred throughout Edgware, but some extreme cases may be deemed an unsafe risk. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including fertilisers and water contaminants such as detergents.


What is gazumping?


Gazumping happens when a house seller acknowledges the first purchaser's offer, only to dismiss it in favour of a higher offer. The chance of getting gazumped is present in any transaction. You should instruct a law firm early, and even before acceptance of an offer to reduce the chance of gazumping.


What sort of additional enquiries regarding the risk of floods in the North London region will the property solicitor in Edgware report back to us on?


A lawyer conducts formal environmental searches, which include Edgware area flood risk data.


When in the conveyancing process should I get a conveyancer to handle our purchase?


The short answer is, as soon as possible. The legal work can then commence immediately. Instructing your solicitor earlier for a purchase allows your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed, or, if you are selling a property, information, especially from slow third-parties, can be requested even prior to accepting an offer.
