How do we find fixed rate conveyancing?


The lack of clarity surrounding this matter catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many firms purport to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional fees may be added into the small print. Any extra charges found in the solicitor's terms should be fair. They only apply in cases where the solicitor must complete additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The quote must also state any disbursements to be paid.


Do I need to get a surveying expert to inspect this home purchase?


The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors strongly advise that property purchasers book a building survey when buying in Small Heath. Buyers should be aware that there are a wide range of concerns which have a negative impact on a property, for example wet rot. Such issues will not be considered during the conveyancing work itself.


What amount of time may we plan for conveyancing legal work take, according to your estimates?


On average, the number of weeks taken to sell or purchase property is not wholly predictable. This wide range results from numerous issues affecting
