Q.

When in the conveyancing process is it appropriate to get a solicitor to act for us?

A.

In simple terms, the faster you instruct the better, as there are several tasks that can be carried out immediately. Early instruction of a solicitor for a sale can mean that documents can be prepared earlier, considerably accelerating the whole process, whereas if you are buying you will the details of your Devon solicitor ready when you make an offer.

What factors help with guaranteeing a fast conveyancing process?

It is well established that finding a proactive and experienced solicitor is the key to fast conveyancing. Consider the following:

Q.

How many weeks should I expect it to take my conveyancing solicitor to conduct all of the legal work on a maisonette in a fifties building we are intending to purchase?

Getting contracts exchanged can take anywhere from around a month and three months, which can be affected by various things, like the efficiency of the sellers lawyer, or the turnaround of searches.

Q.

I am preparing to move out of our period building near Devon into our next flat in Cornwall , what is the optimum stage to instruct a removals firm?

A.

The most sensible course of action is for buyers to wait before making arrangements with a removal company until such time as both sides have firmed up the final move date which occurs once signing of contracts. Many removals firms will impose a cancellation premium . Try Shift It Man, 97 Chestnut Av, Exeter, EX2 6DN on 01392 202065 or Bishop's Move, Kestrel Way, Sowton Ind Est, Exeter, EX2 7PA Phone: 01392 596134.
