Q.

I need to find a solicitor that offers cheap conveyancing in Brixton. What do I need to check for?

Numerous property lawyers claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. However additional fees may increase your final bill. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

How do I avoid being gazumped?

Q.

I am expecting to move out of our terraced house in Brixton into our new home in Streatham . What is the best point to select a removals firm?

Our property lawyers are focused on speed and communication you moving home as quickly as realistically possible.

What causes the purchase conveyancing process in Brixton to go on for so long?

Conveyancing in Brixton could take more time than budgeted for many reasons. Sometimes, these causes are beyond the solicitors' influence. We work hard to diminish the impact of these delays if it can be achieved. Common delays can include a slow firm acting for the lender.
