Q.

How do we find affordable conveyancing in Bearsted?

A.

Lack of clarity over this point catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many firms promote supposedly cheap conveyancing. Often extra fees will be included in the terms and conditions, left unread by preoccupied homeowners Applicable disbursements should be included on your conveyancing quote Any costs listed in the solicitor's terms should be fair and clearly defined and only come into force where your conveyancer must complete unanticipated additional work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

Q.

Should we be concerned about 'fixtures and fittings'?

Chiefly, fixtures are fixed items, such as door handles to the property, whereas fixtures are free-standing items, like electric or gas fires. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.
