How do we get a cheap solicitor to sell a property?


Many online and high street conveyancers claim to offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately extra costs are often hiding in the solicitor's terms of engagement. A quote for conveyancing in Highbury should list costs to be paid to third parties, including search providers, (disbursements). Extra costs listed in terms of engagement should be fair and reasonable. They be applicable if the lawyer is required to complete extra work for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

I am on a deadline and need get fast conveyancing, what can we do to speed up the process?


As is often argued, a faster move is key to instruct a experienced conveyancing solicitor. That said, there are several tasks you, as the buyer, can do, including, arranging any finances require to complete the purchase, promptly answering your conveyancing solicitor's questions (by email if possible) and asking for property searches to be ordered immediately.


What should I be conscious of if purchasing a flat in a Islington local authority conservation area ?


An integral part of conveyancing for buyers includes the application for searches of Islington planning authority to check conservation area status and the appropriate permission for any modifications. .


The agent has suggested a law firm. Is it risky to instruct this solicitor?


An agent in Shrewton will endorse one or more conveyancing firms, however, these referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, including online or local firms, as there is a risk that an agent may choose whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the law firm with the best reputation.


We are buying in Highbury on a recently-developed ex-industrial use land. Could the topsoil be contaminated by industrial waste?


Highbury agriculture or industry can cause soil contamination. Also considering issues such as groundwater contaminants like household chemicals, contaminants affecting Highbury property will be factored into an environmental search.
