Q.

We are trying to find a low cost conveyancing quote in Dartmouth. What should we check?

A.

Confusion over this issue catches out many property buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many conveyancers offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. However additional charges can inflate your final invoice. Any additional costs listed in terms of engagement should be reasonable. The disbursements to be paid ought to be listed on any quote for conveyancing in Dartmouth

Q.

Should we instruct a conveyancing referred by our agent?

A.

Many agents will have referral deals with solicitors whereby they refer work. These referrals should be considered carefully, as there is a risk that the agent may suggest whichever firm pays the most per referral, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

How many weeks will it take the conveyancer to get through all of the conveyancing work on a detached sixties building?

A.

It can take anywhere between a month and three months dependent on any number of things e.g. the speed of the vendor's conveyancing solicitor, or whether there are any linked sales.

Q.

What will a Dartmouth property lawyer do when the building we are buying is inside a conservation area and has inappropriate window frames added?

A.

Your instructed conveyancing solicitor will always check if the property is inside a conservation area, and if so whether any modifications have the necessary consent from the South Hams council.

Q.

Are your lawyers geared up for 1 month completions on residential property auction conveyancing in Dartmouth?

A.

Our team are property auction specialists and regularly do the legal conveyancing buyers and sellers at auction. Our niche auction team of property lawyers have been instructed by countless buyers at national and local auctions that include Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London, Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.

Traditionally unusual lots e. g. development propositions, are purchased in auctions which require greater examination. We therefore suggest buyers to formally instruct the lawyer in advance of the property auction date so there is time for a review.

Thereafter, following the auction day arrives your selected lawyer is wholly geared up to completing the transaction within as short a time frame as usually required .

Q.

For a fast exchange and completion on the purchase of a £867,000 property, what can we do to accelerate the conveyancing process?

A.

Crucial to buying faster is to employing a proactive lawyer. There are, in addition, a range of things you, as the buyer, can also do to accelerate the process, including, requesting regular updates from your lawyer and keep the pressure on, answering any queries raised by your lawyer as soon as possible and arranging any finances require to complete the purchase.

Q.

What sort of environmental conveyancing searches in relation to the risk and history of flooding at Devon will a lawyer in Dartmouth do for an investment maisonette I am wanting to buy?

A.

The lawyer conducts environmental searches, which include Dartmouth flood risk area information.

Q.

Does 'fixtures and fittings' include things like built-in wardrobes?

A.

Generally speaking, fixtures are permanently fixed to walls, floors or ceilings securely, whereas fixtures are free-standing items, such as chairs. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.
