Q.

We are trying to find an affordable Canning Town conveyancing quote. What do I need to check for?

A.

Lack of clarity over this topic catches out many buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many firms claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'.

Q.

Should I choose a property lawyer who works with by my local agent?

A.

If you choose a conveyancer referred through this route, you may have the advantage of the agent being able to induce a solicitor to wrap up the process as soon as possible. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, some agents may 'recommend' the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.

Is there a risk that our purchase may be gazumped?

A.

Gazumping takes place when a property owner accepts the 1st buyer's offer, only to reject it in favour of a greater offer. The risk of gazumping is present in any transaction. You should instruct your conveyancing solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer to reduce the chance of your transaction being gazumped.
