Q.

How do I get a cheap solicitor for purchasing a property?

A.

The confusion over this point catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many firms offer cheap conveyancing quotes. Often extra fees may increase the final bill. Extra charges found in the small print needs to be reasonable. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.

Q.

What are our options if we acquire country house in a Lambeth local authority designated conservation area ?

An integral part of conveyancing for purchasers involves the making of enquiries of the Lambeth authority to establish conservation area status and the existence of consent for any alterations. Conveyancing searches vary in price between authorities, but are charged at cost to the purchaser.

Q.

What makes Bedford Hill property legal work to take such a long time? The last solicitor we used felt very slow.

My friend has experience of the conveyancing process when selling a home , Is it wise to take care of legal conveyancing process ourselves?
