Q.

How do I find the best conveyancing rates in Driffield for a 341,000 home?

A.

Confusion over this matter catches out many property buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many conveyancers advertise theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing', however additional charges will be included in small print. Any extra fees found in the terms should be fair and clearly defined. They come into force only if your lawyer is required to complete extra work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the solicitors' fees, based on the property you are buying.

Q.

What will a Driffield property lawyer advise if the maisonette is in a East Riding of Yorkshire council conservation area which has unfitting stone cladding fitted?

A.

East Riding of Yorkshire council enquiries conducted by a solicitor will establish if the property is within a conservation area and evidence of local authority approval for additions to the property will be asked for.

Q.

Is tenancy agreement vetting a fee or disbursement?

A.

Some firms frequently hide additional costs as disbursements. It is not always clear whether a cost is a disbursement or not, and if it should be included. This charge is a fee not a disbursement, and should be included in your conveyancing quote.

Q.

How do we protect against getting gazumped?

A.

The convention of rejecting an accepted offer on a home when a better one is made by another buyer is referred to as gazumping. The chance of gazumping exists for almost any purchase. You should instruct your solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer to reduce the chance of gazumping.
