How do I find fixed rate conveyancing?


Several solicitors offer cheap conveyancing quotes, however additional fees are often hiding in the terms of engagement. Charges found in terms and conditions should be reasonable and clear. They be applicable if the lawyer must complete work beyond standard conveyancing for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.


How early do I need to instruct a conveyancing solicitor to handle our purchase?


With a firm offering a 'no move, no fee' conveyancing quote, instructing as early as possible is better. The legal work can then begin immediately. Early instruction of a solicitor to act on your Chichester sale or purchase for a purchase can mean that you will the details of your Chichester solicitor ready when you make an offer, or, if you are selling a property, relevant information can be sourced sooner (this is particularly true for leasehold properties).

My mortgage lender is Market Harborough Building Society, is there anything I need to be aware of?

Some firms pass off fees which should be included as disbursements. It may be unclear whether a cost is a fee or not, and if it ought to be included. These costs are fees not disbursements, and should be included in a conveyancing quote.
