We are looking for a discount conveyancing quote. What do I need to check for?


This catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many solicitors offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. However additional costs can inflate the solicitor's invoice. Additional fees found in your solicitor's terms should be fair and reasonable. Your conveyancing quote should, in addition, define costs to be paid to third parties, e.g. the Land Registry, (disbursements).


I am planning on buying a renovated flat in a designated Reigate conservation area. How does one get more details relating to the current state of repair of the area?


English Heritage, a government body, have assembled information about the condition of conservation areas along with the vulnerability to getting worse. Conservation areas are created by the local Reigate and Banstead planning authority, who police things like public spaces to the obstruction of neglected buildings.

I am buying in Reigate, and have had a quote from you. Will there be any extra costs?


No. We never hide any hidden extra costs. Some conveyancers give 'quotes' which are in fact estimates. The bill you receive on completion can be much greater.


How long does be planned for conveyancing legal work require?


The amount of time required to transfer a residence does vary. This is based on a number of issues such as when a third party is slow to respond. The national average is 8 to 12 weeks, we however drive the process forwards, completing within eight weeks.


Which issues are key to arrange fast legal work?


Experienced buyers will tell you that instructing a proactive, diligent lawyer is the key to a faster move. When selecting a lawyer, : What methods of communication do they use? Posting documents can adds days of waiting to a purchase. Do they work on a 'no sale, no fee' basis? Do they offer 'instant' online quotes?


I have read about the conveyancing process when selling a home. Might it be practicable to take care of legal conveyancing process without help.?


There are no arguments why a seller cant take care of the bulk of the legal and technical work without a skilled conveyancer in Reigate. The truth is however that a conveyancing solicitor juggles a large number of jobs e.g. approving pre exchange checklists and handling retentions which require experience. Essentially have a go conveyancers will not be covered by suitable insurance cover that solicitors practices need to be covered by.


We plan to purchase a rectory in the parish of Little Bookham. Is a chancel search required?


Regardless of the Reigate parish in which you are purchasing, the solicitor could advise that a chancel search be taken out. In Reigate's much older areas, chancel repair has the potential to be charged on current owners of a home where parish councils may have spared previous owners or tenants. For property in the parish of Little Bookham, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.
