Q.

I need a cheap solicitor to purchase a leasehold house. What is included?

A.

Lack of clarity over this topic affects many sellers and buyers who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process, and many firms advertise supposedly cheap conveyancing. Often extra fees may be added into the terms of engagement that sellers and buyers often do not check. Any charges found in terms and conditions ought to be fair and be applied only where the conveyancer is required to complete extra work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

Can doing the conveyancing on a DIY basis save any money?

A.

In theory there is no argument why you cannot conduct your own conveyancing unaided. In reality however, a property solicitor carries out a significant number of roles from such as applying for and interpreting office copies and the Land Registry formalities which really need training. In addition solicitors are required to carry acceptable indemnity insurance to shield you from any professional failures.

Q.

Does homewardlegal.co.uk advise on the conveyancing of auction properties in Arkley?

A.

We are very knowledgeable with auction buyers and sellers.

Solicitors therefore recommend auction buyers to decide on a the lawyer well before the day of the auction for a full review of the lot.

Q.

In 2 months we are preparing to move from our semi detached home just outside Arkley to a bigger flat in Colindale . At what stage to appoint a home removal company?

A.

Your solicitor would tend to advocate that you delay until after exchange of contracts as prior to this commonly an absolute move date wont have been fixed.
