Q.

We need a cheap solicitor quote for selling a freehold home, we are on a tight budget.

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this matter catches out many property buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many firms promote supposedly cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately additional fees can inflate the final bill. Any fees included in the solicitor's terms needs to be fair and only come into force where your conveyancer is required to complete unexpected extra 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.

The internet is full of many manuals going into great depth on do it yourself conveyancing such as Conveyancing Handbook by Frances Silverman . In which case, do I need to use a Burton Latimer lawyer ?

A.

On paper there is no argument why you shouldn't complete the legal process without assistance.

The truth is however that a solicitor typically handles a huge number of functions e.g. chasing any missing replies/clarifications to enquiries or checking for any restrictive covenants which need a skilled professional.

Q.

How many weeks should it take my solicitor to exchange the conveyancing formalities on the lower floor of period house we are thinking of buying in Burton Latimer?

A.

Completion can take anywhere from 1 month to twelve weeks, which can depend on various factors, for example the efficiency of the seller's conveyancing solicitor, or the number of people in the chain. Our chosen conveyancers are very proactive completing the process as rapidly as achievable.

Q.

What due diligence in relation to the risk of flooding at Northamptonshire will a Burton Latimer conveyancer look into?

A.

Q.

Santander will be our mortgage lender, what do we need to be aware of?

A.

Some lenders have reduced the number of firms able to act for them. We are able to act for the vast majority of lenders, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

Our agent has put forward a property solicitor. Should we use this firm?

A.

Estate agent referrals are a commonplace route to find a solicitor, however, these referrals must be carefully considered, as the agent may recommend the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.
