I am looking for the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Great Ayton. Will I get a quote or and estimate?


The lack of clarity surrounding this point affects many buyers who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process. Many property lawyers advertise supposedly cheap conveyancing. However additional charges are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms of engagement. These terms are often ignored by excited buyers, eager to get underway. Charges included in terms and conditions needs to be reasonable and clear and only apply to matters if the lawyer must complete work beyond standard conveyancing on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Applicable disbursements should also be included on the quote


Do I need to get a homebuyer report?


Homeward Legal strongly advise that all buyers arrange an inspection. There are many issues that affect a property, that will not be addressed during the conveyancing process, which include blocked drains and settlement.


We have a found a freehold property to buy. How do we guarantee fast conveyancing?


The key to a fast completion is to use a proactive, diligent lawyer. Additionally, there are numerous things you could do to speed up the legal work, such as, keeping in regular contact with the lawyer, quickly answering your lawyer's questions and getting your mortgage offer in place.

How is stamp duty calculated and what will we need to pay on a £593000 residence?

Are we in danger of gazumping?


This describes when a seller accepts a purchaser's offer, only to later reject it in favour of a second purchaser's offer. Gazumping could occur even months into a sale. There is almost always a risk of gazumping. To reduce the likelihood of being gazumped, consider instructing an efficient solicitor as soon as possible.
