I need a cheap Filey solicitor for selling a house. How do I get a quote?


Various solicitors offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra fees will be included in the terms. Additional fees needs to be fair and reasonable. They only be applied if the solicitor is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. A quote should also state any disbursements to be paid.


Why does conveyancing for a Filey property sale take months to complete?


The conveyancing process will occasionally endure stressful setbacks, we, however, strive to curtail their effect wherever a difference can be made by, for example, ordering searches as early as possible. Common delays can include difficulties with mortgage finance.


Is able to handle fast completions on the conveyancing of auction properties in Filey?


Indeed we are auction specialists and regularly act for bidders at auction. It is prudent to instruct a solicitors practice as soon as they can to allow for a detailed review of the documents in advance of the auction. Following the actual auction your selected lawyer is utterly able to concentrate on concluding the transaction in as short a time frame as usually required by the auction conditions.


Does my professional conveyancing solicitor in Filey inform me about the cost of the council tax on a Band H property prior to exchange of contracts?


The property solicitor will write to the council to discover the correct council tax band and rates, which will then be set out in the conveyancing report on title. The correct charges for properties in Filey

are published on the Scarborough council site. At the time of writing on 09 August 2012 rates are:

Property lawyers in Filey do a number of property conveyancing searches if instructed by a property purchaser, what actual ones?


If taking out a mortgage a mortgage lender mandates a solicitor to get at least - Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environmental, and occasionally less common searches, which may include a Coal and Brine.


Doing ones own conveyancing without using a Filey property solicitor appears to be becoming possible when buying a flat. However, would it actually be a good economy ?


Legally speaking there is no argument at all why you cant handle the bulk of the conveyancing yourself. That said, a property solicitor typically handles a long list of jobs e.g. chasing any outstanding docs and registering the new title owner some of which need training.

However solicitors practices are under a duty to be covered by sufficient indemnity insurance that protects you from any omissions.


Having heard about the serious flooding in Leeds and across Yorkshire I am asking whether flood risk searches aren't exacting enough?


A qualified Filey property lawyer will consider get additional flood searches if the standard searches identifies a Filey area flood risk

Why not contact a local resident for additional extra information if still concerned or local Yorkshire, North Riding flood damage builder for example: Robinson G P Ltd, 17 Muston Rd, Filey, YO14 0BU Tel: 01723 514363.


How long on average should I expect it to take the property solicitor to carry out all of the legal formalities on a semi detached new build home?


The conveyancing process can take anywhere from 3 weeks and 3 months, contingent on various issues e.g. the efficiency of the seller's property solicitor, or the speed of other lawyers in the chain.
