Q.

I am looking for the cheapest conveyancing solicitors. as we are on a budget.

A.

The confusion over this topic affects many property buyers and sellers who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process, and many conveyancers claim to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes. However extra fees are frequently hidden in the terms and conditions which property buyers and sellers may have not read carefully Charges listed in terms of engagement should be fair. The online quote calculator can generate an accurate statement of the legal fees for the property you plan to buy.

Q.

We are on a deadline and would like get fast conveyancing, what can we do to speed up our transaction?

A.

Finding a proactive and experienced solicitor is crucial to buying faster. You should consider:

  • Did you experience any delays when requesting a quote?
  • Do they use email?
  • Will they order searches immediately?

Q.

Do we need a chancel search? I am purchasing a property close to a 12th Century priory in Dorking.

A.

Owners of property in Dorking may be subject to chancel repair liability. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a Dorking property, but an indemnity policy may be available to protect the new owners. Your solicitor can provide more details. Dorking Church of England properties include Pixham St Mary the Virgin, Ranmore St Barnabas, St Martin and St Paul.

Q.

How many weeks will it take my assigned conveyancing solicitor to exchange contracts all of the conveyancing work on a flat in a building?

A.

Completion can take anywhere from around a month and 3 months based on a number of things e.g. the speed of the sellers solicitor, or the speed of other lawyers in the chain.

Q.

Could the conveyancing charges incorporate any extra fees?

A.

Which parts of Dorking are protected by a conservation area?

A.

There are a number of areas of conservation in or near Dorking. Your lawyer will be able to provide more details.

Q.

When in the conveyancing process should we instruct a conveyancer?

A.

With a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, earlier is preferable, as conveyancing involves a number of tasks which may begin immediately. Instructing your solicitor sooner for a purchase means that your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed, or, if you are selling a property, paperwork can be prepared, even before a buyer is found.
