Q.

I am trying to find the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Cubitt Town. because we are on a limited budget.

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many buyers paying out more than they anticipated in the end. Many law firms claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra fees are often hiding in the terms of engagement. Busy, stressed buyers ignore these terms at their peril. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

When is it wise to speak to a solicitor in Cubitt Town?

With few exceptions, the faster you instruct the better, as the legal work can commence immediately. Prompt instruction of a firm can limit the risk of the transaction stalling.

Q.

What are 'fixtures and fittings'?

A.

Purchasers are frequently confused by the lack of detail regarding what fixtures and fittings are included. The parties' may have widely differing assumptions about what will be included; this makes a fixtures and fittings form so necessary.

Q.

Should we use the property lawyer offered by our estate agent?

A.

An agent may recommend a law firm to handle your conveyancing, however, these referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, including online or local firms, as some agents may 'recommend' the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.

Q.

For our lender, we have chosen Accord Mortgages Ltd - what will I need to be aware of?

A.

Traditionally, solicitors could carry out mortgage-related work for most lenders. Some lenders are now reducing the size of their 'solicitor panel', potentially creating increased legal costs for purchasers. Homeward Legal, however, are able to act for many lenders to keep legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

Which Cubitt Town lender panels are you on?

A.

Most lenders in Cubitt Town are on our solicitors' panels. Local mortgage lenders and brokers include Mortgage Consultant & Brokers, 68 Tunnel Av, London, SE10 0SD.

Q.

Should I be concerned about gazumping?

A.

Gazumping occurs when an offer is accepted but then rejected by the seller and then selecting another buyer's higher offer. The risk of getting gazumped is present in any transaction. The first step in reducing the chance that gazumping will effect you is to instruct a property solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer.

Q.

A.
