Q.

How do we get low cost conveyancing?

A.

Many conveyancers advertise supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately extra costs are often hiding in the terms and conditions, left unregarded by busy homeowners Any extra costs listed in the terms should be fair and reasonable. They be applicable if your conveyancer must complete unanticipated additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Your conveyancing quote should also clearly state any disbursements.

Q.

What sort of local environmental searches in respect to the risk and history of possible flooding at Bexley will my Abbey Wood solicitor actually carry out on a Sixties property we are intending to purchase?

A.

Q.

There are a growing number books about how to do DIY conveyancing such as How to Buy Your First Home (And How to Sell it Too). Do we have to use Abbey Wood lawyer ?

Moreover legal firms are under a duty to have acceptable indemnity insurance in order to protect you from any professional errors.
