How do we find the best rates for conveyancing for a 170,000 house?


Confusion over this topic catches out many property buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many property lawyers offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however additional costs are often hiding in the small print. Extra charges ought to be reasonable and clear and only come into force where your lawyer is required to complete extra work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

For fast conveyancing on the purchase of a £520,000 property, what can we do to accelerate the process?


Experienced buyers will tell you that a fast conveyancing transaction is essential to is to employing a communicative conveyancing solicitor. When choosing a conveyancing solicitor, you should ask the following: Do they offer 'instant' online quotes? Which communication methods do they use? Days can be wasted waiting for letters in the post which could be emailed or faxed. Do they offer 'no move, no fee' protection? This can incentivise a faster transaction.


Do you recommend your solicitors to deal with the legal conveyancing of property auction properties in Oadby?
