Q.

What are the best conveyancing rates for a £248k property?

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many buyers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned. Many conveyancers promote so-called cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra costs can inflate the solicitor's invoice. Additional charges needs to be reasonable and clear. They come into force only if your lawyer is required to complete extra work for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

At what point is it appropriate to speak to a conveyancing solicitor in Avery Hill?

A.

If you choose a solicitor with 'no move, no fee' protection, earlier is preferable. Prompt instruction of a firm to act for you on your Avery Hill transaction can reduce any chance of your transaction falling through.

Q.

I am on a deadline and would like guarantee fast conveyancing, what do we need to guarantee?

A.

Finding a proactive, diligent solicitor is crucial to faster conveyancing. Consider the following when selecting:

  • Was there a delay delivering a quote?
  • Which communication methods do they use? Days can be wasted waiting for letters in the post which could be emailed or faxed.
  • Are they 'no move, no fee'? This can incentivise a faster transaction.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Avery Hill?

A.

Avery Hill is located in London Borough of Bexley Council, Civic Offices, Broadway, Bexleyheath, Kent, DA6 7LB, phone: 020 8303 7781

Q.

Would ordering a house survey be advisable when buying a property, irrespective of its condition?

A.

We strongly advise that purchasers book a property survey. Buyers should be aware that there are a wide range of defects which have a negative impact on a property, which a conveyancing solicitor will not report on. These include subsidence.

Q.

Should I make use of a conveyancing referred by my agent?

A.

If you opt for a solicitor referred this way, you may have the benefit of the agent's willingness to reduce delays in the conveyancing process. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, the agent may prefer to suggest the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.

Q.

I am intending to purchase a house in Acton. Will a chancel search be important?

A.

The conveyancing solicitor might recommend a chancel search. In Avery Hill's much older areas, chancel repair dues can be collected on owners of a house where parish councils may have spared previous owners or tenants.
