Q.

How do we find fixed rate conveyancing in Bidford On Avon?

A.

This affects many buyers who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process. Many solicitors offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. Often extra charges will be included in small print. Excited buyers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Costs which are listed in the terms should be fair and clearly defined. They come into force only if the conveyancer must complete unanticipated additional work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

I am buying a unique investment property in the boundary of Bidford On Avon conservation area, how do we find details concerning the state of repair?

A.

Conservation areas are set up by the local authority (Stratford-on-Avon) who are responsible for everything from property boundaries to the impediment of derelict buildings. English Heritage, a government body, maintain records of the state of conservation areas in England.

Q.

The estate agent we're using in Pontypridd has referred a lawyer. Is it risky to use this firm?

A.

Many agents have arrangements with solicitors whereby they refer conveyancing work to them. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, an agent may select the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.

Q.

How much would our searches cost?

Q.

Should we be concerned about gazumping?

A.

Gazumping describes circumstances where a house seller acknowledges a buyer's offer, only to dismiss it, opting for another buyer's offer. Although being gazumped is less common in a declining market, there will always be a risk. You should instruct a law firm as soon as possible to reduce the chance of gazumping.
