Q.

We are on a very small budget , Will doing the conveyancing myself without the assistance of a Alsager solicitor possibly save any cash?

A.

There are absolutely no arguments why you should not reasonably do the your own conveyancing without an expert conveyancing solicitor in Alsager. However, a conveyancing solicitor handles a large number of jobs including drafting contracts and handling retentions most of which really need adequate training. Fundamentally amateur lawyers will not be covered by applicable indemnity cover which practicing solicitors are required by the SRA to be covered by.

Q.

Do I need to get a building surveyor to check for issues affecting this property purchase?

It is firmly advised that all purchasers in Alsager order a house survey. A range concerns will impact a property, which include roof damage or failed double glazing. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.

Q.

What causes conveyancing work in Alsager to seem to be so slow?

A.

The conveyancing process can suffer setbacks. Homeward Legal do our best to reduce the cost of these delays if it can be achieved. Common delays can include the length of time it takes for the managing agent or landlord to respond to queries.

Q.

Should I use the property lawyer referred by the agent?

A.

Your Leeds agent will be able to pressure a conveyancing firm they refer a large volume of work to, and can therefore encourage a solicitor to wrap up the process as soon as possible. These referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, including online or local firms, as the agent may prefer to suggest whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the best value for you.
