Q.

What do you charge for the legal fees on a £323,000 residence? We are looking for a fixed rate conveyancing quote.

A.

Numerous firms claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing', however additional charges will be included in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Any extra charges included in the terms should be clearly defined and be applied only where the solicitor must perform additional tasks , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The disbursements to be paid should also be clearly stated on your quote. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.

Q.

Food risk searches are compiled from archived information and given recent weather changes e g the major flooding last year in the Midlands are they comfort enough to establish enough about the ever changing Dickens Heath flood risk area?

A.

Property environmental searches handled by a Dickens Heath conveyancing solicitor should also include a more informative flood search if required.

If you are still concerned you could call a future neighbour.

Q.

Do we need to make use of the firm of solicitors referred by the agent?

A.

The agent can influence one or more conveyancing firms they refer a large number of clients to, and can therefore persuade a slow solicitor to work faster. However, if they are paid a referral fee, there is a risk that the agent may suggest whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the most suitable for you.

Property solicitors in Dickens Heath order official property conveyancing searches when they are acting for a home buyer, what specific searches?

A.

If obtaining a mortgage the lender insist that a solicitor to get at least a specified set of searches, including the following for properties in Dickens Heath: Local Authority Search, Drainage Search (Con29DW or personal) and Environment Search and, depending on certain criteria, specific searches e.g. a Land Charges Search (K15).

Q.

Do it yourself conveyancing without the assistance of a Dickens Heath property solicitor is becoming possible when selling a maisonette but would it be a smart move ?

A.

There are no reasons why a home mover should not reasonably undertake the bulk of the your own conveyancing without conveyancer in Dickens Heath. However, a property solicitor handles a large number of functions e.g. chasing retention releases and notifying the Land Registry of new charges many of which require a skilled professional. Critically DIY conveyancers might come a cropper relevant insurance which practicing lawyers must get.
