Q.

Do all cheap conveyancing quotes have extra fees? We need a discount conveyancing quote.

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many buyers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned. Many solicitors advertise cheap conveyancing, however extra costs are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms. Additional fees found in the small print should be fair. They only be applied if the lawyer must perform additional tasks in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The conveyancing quote should also clearly state costs to be paid to third parties, e.g. the Land Registry, (disbursements).

Q.

Will the Blackheath conveyancing solicitor order any conveyancing searches on the London Fifties detached property I am buying?

A.

If obtaining a mortgage the lender mandates particular searches, including the following Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search and Environment Search, and occasionally specific searches, which might include Land charge Search (bankruptcy only).

Q.

Is a Homebuyer Report a good idea when purchasing a home?

A.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors recommend that property purchasers instruct a surveyor to undertake a survey. There are a wide range of issues which will impact a property, such as ground movement. Such issues will not be considered during the conveyancing work itself.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Blackheath?

A.

Blackheath is located in Royal Borough of Greenwich, The Woolwich Centre, 35 Wellington Street, London, SE18 6HQ, Tel: 020 8854 8894

Q.

To complete on our purchase ASAP, can we aim for a fast conveyancing transaction?

A.

As is widely reported, a fast completion is key is to employing a proactive solicitor. Beyond that, there are a number of things you as the purchaser could do, such as, contacting your solicitor regularly, organising your finances, including arranging a mortgage and quickly answering your solicitor's questions.

Q.

When is it appropriate to find a conveyancer?

A.

Generally, the earlier in the process you can instruct a conveyancing solicitor, the better, as conveyancing involves a number of tasks which may be carried out immediately. Early instruction of a conveyancing firm for a purchase allows you can shave days off the process by having the details of your instructed solicitor ready when you make an offer, or, if you are selling a property, prior to marketing the property, documents can be prepared to make it potentially more attractive to motivated buyers.

Q.

Might our conveyancing charges in Blackheath introduce any supplementary hidden costs?

A.

It is unfortunate that buyer should read the terms of their conveyancing quote careful to identify any hidden fees. We do not hide any hidden charges. Some solicitors only estimate conveyancing costs. The final bill you receive may be much more.

Q.

Britannia is our lender - what will we need to check?

A.

Some lenders have decreased the number of firms on their approved panel, which may result in greater conveyancing costs for buyers. Homeward Legal are able to act for most lenders.
