Q.

We need to find fixed rate Clare conveyancing. because we are on a limited budget.

A.

This catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many property lawyers promote 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional charges may inflate your final invoice. Any fees included in the terms should be fair. They only be applied if the solicitor must complete unanticipated additional work for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

What kind of flood plain searches in respect to the risk of local flooding in the Suffolk area will the Clare conveyancer apply for?

A.

In simple terms, the sooner the better. Instructing a solicitor to handle your Clare conveyancing early can reduce the likelihood of the purchase or sale stalling.
