How do I find affordable conveyancing?


Many solicitors offer supposedly cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately additional fees may be added into the terms and conditions which buyers and sellers may have not read carefully The disbursements to be paid should also be clearly stated on your quote. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.


Are there many buyers in Hornsey Rise gazumped?


Gazumping happens when one buyer's offer is accepted, and then rejected, by the house seller, opting instead for a better offer. Because acceptance of an offer is not binding on the seller until exchange of contracts, there is a danger of being gazumped. Instructing your conveyancing solicitor as soon as you can to handle your transaction should help to reduce the likelihood of gazumping.
