Q.

How do we get low cost conveyancing in Crosby?

A.

Many homeowners seeking discount conveyancing are caught out by the lure of very low conveyancing rates, and many solicitors promote so-called cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra charges may be added into the small print. Extra fees listed in terms of engagement should be fair.

Q.

How much can conveyancing searches cost?

Conveyancing searches in Crosby ranges in cost, depending on the searches chosen. Searches are disbursements paid to a third party, and are not included in your solicitor's fees.

Can you suggest how we get out of paying out for stamp duty land tax?

Q.

Doing your own conveyancing without a solicitor in Crosby appears to be becoming possible as a buyer and seller of a flat but would it be wise ?

A.

Theoretically there is no argument at all why a buyer cant conduct conveyancing unaided.

However, a conveyancing solicitor is familiar with a significant number of actions such as drafting contracts and notifying all parties of exchange many of which need a skilled professional.

Q.

I am planning to buy in Crosby. How can we check if the house is in a conservation area?

A.

Conservation areas categorise areas recognised as being of special architectural or historic interest. You may wish to contact the local authority if you have specific questions, but your property solicitor will investigate the impact of conservation areas or other planning restrictions.
