Q.

We are trying to find a fixed rate conveyancing quote. What is included?

A.

This matter catches out many property buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors advertise supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Often extra costs may be added into small print. Any charges needs to be reasonable and be applied only where your solicitor must perform additional tasks on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

What average time will it take my assigned property solicitor to conduct the conveyancing work on the lower floor of Edwardian property we are purchasing in Catford?

A.

The conveyancing process can take anywhere between a month and three months depending on various issues for example the speed of the vendor's conveyancing solicitor, or the speed of your lender. Our lawyers are highly focused on speed and communication exchanging as quickly as we possibly can.

Q.

Is a property survey advisable when buying a home?

A.

It is heavily suggested that all buyers in Catford book a house surveyor when purchasing in Catford. There can be a range of concerns that will impact a property. These can include cracks around door frames and rotten roof timbers, and issues such as these are not likely to be investigated as part of the conveyancing itself.

Q.

What factors can impact land in Catford. Are these thoroughly investigated?

A.

Q.

For a fast conveyancing process to buy a £489,000 house, how can we speed things up?

A.

The key to fast conveyancing is to employing a proactive solicitor. That said, there are a range of tasks you, as the buyer, can do to get moving sooner, such as, pushing the solicitor to begin enquiries as soon as possible, ordering a property survey early in the transaction and responding to your solicitor by phone, fax or email wherever possible.

Q.

I have been reading about the conveyancing process when buying a home , Is it a good idea to take care of the legal work myself?

A.

Legally speaking there is no argument at all why you cant adopt a DIY approach and conduct legal and technical work on your own.

That said, a Catford property solicitor typically handles a huge number of actions including approving completion statements and verifying identities of transacting parties most of which need a skilled professional.
