Q.

How do we get a discount conveyancing quote in Crook?

A.

Many online and high street law firms advertise supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes. Often additional fees may be added into the small print. Excited property buyers and sellers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. The conveyancing quote should also state any disbursements to be paid. Extras listed in the terms ought to be clearly defined and be applied only where your solicitor must perform additional tasks , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

Are many purchasers in Crook gazumped?

A.

The custom of rejecting an offer which has been accepted when a better one is made by another buyer is called gazumping. The will be a danger of getting gazumped in any transaction, because offers are not binding until exchange of contracts. You should instruct an efficient solicitor as soon as you can to reduce the chance of your transaction being gazumped.

Q.

Is contaminated land in Crook an issue for many homes?

How does the conveyancing solicitor in Crook investigate the risk and history of possible flooding in the Crook area on a Fifties property we intend to purchase?
