How do we get a cheap solicitor quote to purchase a house?


Both high-street and online solicitors offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional costs will be included in the terms. Any extra charges needs to be reasonable. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.


What sort of local environmental searches into the risk of possible flooding in the Yorkshire, West Riding area will a property lawyer in Ackworth actually do?


An essential step in the conveyancing protocol involves the conveyancing lawyer conducting conveyancing searches that set out details on the local Ackworth flood risk. At the time of writing (01/03/13) reports on the UK Environment Agency do not list any flood warnings in the Ackworth area.


What average time does it take the lawyer to finish all of the conveyancing formalities on a detached home we are buying?


Getting contracts exchanged can take anywhere between 3 weeks and three months, which can be hampered by any number of things for example the speed of the seller's property lawyer, or the communication, with managing agents. Our chosen solicitors are extremely results-orientated, completing as promptly as we possibly can.


I have been reading about the conveyancing process when buying a house. Would it be foolhardy to take care of the all of the legal work on my own?

There are absolutely no arguments why a home buyer cant opt to take care of the greater majority of the legal work without the help of Ackworth lawyer. The truth is however that a conveyancer typically handles a significant number of functions e.g. chasing replies to requisitions or assembling correct warranties some of which require experience. More importantly have a go conveyancers will be working without the correct indemnity insurance which every solicitors must take out.


Property environmental searches may be conveyancing protocol but when one considers recent events for instance the serious flooding in Leeds and across Yorkshire are they the best way to determine enough about the local Ackworth flood risk?


A thorough Ackworth conveyancing solicitor will apply for flood searches (Landmark search) if the enviro searches spots a Ackworth area flood risk

For added area background you could contact a future neighbour.


Why can conveyancing for a purchase take such a long time?


The Ackworth conveyancing process could potentially be delayed. We know how much extra stress these can cause and seek to reduce their consequences by chasing for prompt responses. Delays can include the length of time it takes for the managing agent or landlord to respond to queries.


We are buying on a brownfield site. It seems uranium soil contamination may be an issue.


Soil contamination is closely checked. Data on many contaminants, such as organohalides and groundwater contamination, will be included in an environmental search.


I am on a deadline and will need to ensure fast conveyancing, how can we speed things up?


Importantly, contacting a proactive and experienced lawyer is essential to faster conveyancing. There are a range of things you can do. These include:

  • arranging any finances require to complete the purchase
  • pushing the lawyer to begin enquiries as soon as possible
  • answering any queries raised by the lawyer as soon as possible
