Q.

I need low cost conveyancing. Will I get a quote or and estimate?

A.

Confusion over this issue catches out many home owners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many firms promote cheap conveyancing quotes, however additional charges may inflate the final invoice. Additional fees listed in the small print should be reasonable and clear and only apply in cases where the conveyancer must perform additional tasks on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our online calculator will create an accurate quote for your buy.

Q.

What does fee for the conveyancing searches come to?

A.

The cost of conveyancing searches varies substantially. These searches are paid out to a 3rd party, and are charged at cost.

Q.

The estate agent we are using in Chellaston has put forward the solicitor . Will it be cheaper to use this firm?

A.

Estate agent referrals are a common path whereby buyers get a solicitor. Such referrals should be compared to other online or local firms, as the agent may recommend the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.

Q.

Are the many conservation areas in Abridge likely to affect us?

What average time should I expect it to take for our property solicitor to complete all of the legal formalities on an apartment in a house we are intending to purchase?

A.

The process can take anywhere between 1 month and three months, which can be affected by various things e.g. the efficiency of the sellers lawyer, or the turnaround of searches. Our lawyers are extremely focused on communication, with the intention of completing the process as rapidly as possible.

Q.

In what ways does my conveyancing solicitor in Abridge advise me on the potential risk of local flooding in the Abridge area on a Victorian property we are purchasing?

A.

A significantly more detailed dedicated flood risk search, for instance the Landmark search, will typically be advocated by the property solicitor in Abridge if the results of the environmental search suggest flood risk to the property.
