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.

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.

How long should it take my property solicitor to conduct the legal work on a semi detached property?

A.

The process can take anywhere from 3 weeks and 3 months, which can be hampered by any number of issues, like the efficiency of the vendor's conveyancing solicitor, or the turnaround of searches.

For fast conveyancing on the purchase of a £523,000 property, what can we do to speed up the process?

It is a truism that fast conveyancing is key is to use a proactive and experienced lawyer. That said, there are several tasks you, as the buyer, can do to accelerate the process, including, calling or emailing the lawyer, and chase them if you suspect any delays, promptly answering your lawyer's questions (by email if possible) and organising your finances, including arranging a mortgage.

Q.

How is Cubitt Town contaminated land identified?

A.

A wide range of contaminants caused by environmental concerns can affect Cubitt Town property, such as nearby electrical substations. An environmental search will give more information.

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.

What are the alternatives if purchasing a period house in a Greenwich planning authority conservation area ?
