How do we find the best rates for conveyancing in Farnham for a £75,000 house?


Many solicitors purport to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often extra fees can inflate your final invoice. Any extra costs included in terms and conditions needs to be reasonable and clear. Our online quote calculator will generate an accurate quote for your transaction.


What does a Farnham conveyancing solicitor do if the house we am buying is inside a conservation area and has unsightly dormer windows fitted?


Your instructed conveyancing solicitor will always find out whether the property is affected by a conservation area and whether any modifications have required consents from the local council. In the absence of any appropriate consents, your Farnham conveyancing solicitor will advise you of the best alternatives, which include seeking from Waverley planning authority or purchasing an indemnity insurance policy.


Is gazumping usual in Farnham?


Gazumping takes place when the 1st buyer's offer is accepted, and then rejected, by the house seller, selecting instead another buyer's offer. There is almost always a chance of being gazumped. Instructing a conveyancing solicitor early is a key first step to reducing this risk.


How soon is it appropriate to instruct a conveyancer?


If you choose a solicitor with 'no move, no fee' protection, the earlier in the process you can instruct a solicitor, the better, as conveyancing

involves a number of tasks which may be carried out very early in the process. Some suggest waiting before instruction until an offer has been firmly agreed, but opting to delay can jeopardise your sale or purchase.


Which local authority looks after Farnham?


Farnham is located in Waverley Borough Council, The Burys, Godalming, Surrey, GU7 1HR, phone: 01483 523 333


Do your house conveyancing solicitors conduct property auction conveyancing in Farnham?


Our recommended conveyancing solicitors commonly do the legal conveyancing buyers and sellers at auction. Our panel of lawyers have previously acted for many successful bidders at local auctions that include Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London, Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.

Prudent auction buyers always decide on a CQS lawyer as quickly as possible to give enough time for a full report of the auction legal pack prior to the auction day.

Subsequently, following the day of the auction your selected lawyer is thoroughly geared up to finishing the legal work within 28 days as conventionally required by the auction conditions.


Does 'fixtures and fittings' include things like the fridge?


In the main, fixtures are permanently fixed to walls, floors or ceilings and fixtures are free-standing. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction. This makes a fixtures and fittings form so necessary.


We have a found a freehold house to buy. How do we organise fast legal work?


As is often reported, fast conveyancing is key to instruct a proactive and experienced solicitor. Consider the following:

  • Was there a delay delivering a quote?
  • Do they use email as the preferred mode of communication?
  • Do they offer 'no move, no fee' protection? This can incentivise a faster transaction.
