Q.

How do I get low cost conveyancing in Dursley?

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many property buyers and sellers paying out more than they anticipated in the end, and many solicitors claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often extra fees will be included in the terms of engagement. Any fees ought to be reasonable. They only be applied if your lawyer must complete additional work for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

Bookshops now have a multitude of useful publications on the subject of doing the legal work yourself such as leasehold Flats & Houses a supplement to Bradshaw's Guide to DIY House Buying, Selling & Conveyancing . Do I really need a conveyancing solicitor in Dursley ?

A.

If you want to do so, you can certainly take care of the conveyancing without the help of an instructed property lawyer in Dursley.

Of course lawyers would suggest that this would be a dangerous approach as do it yourself conveyancers will not be covered by the correct cover which every solicitors firm are obligated to have.

Our lawyers approach is to use cutting edge HMRC and Land Registry integrated systems . Critically we allocate you a expert panel of solicitor incentivised to communicate through every part of the buyer and seller chain .

Q.

Do fixtures and fittings include things like free-standing kitchen appliances?

A.

Commonly, fixtures are fixed items, such as gas or wall-mounted ovens to the property, whereas fixtures can be more easily removed. This may not considered until it is too late, hence the importance of a complete fixtures and fittings form, agreed by both parties.

Q.

Q.

How long on average should it take my assigned conveyancing solicitor to get through all of the legal formalities on the top floor of period home we are purchasing in Dursley?

A.

Getting contracts exchanged can take anywhere between around a month and 12 weeks contingent on a number of things, like the speed of the vendor's conveyancing solicitor, or the time taken to issue draft contracts.

Q.

The estate agent has put forward the property lawyer whom they usually use. Do I need to use this solicitor?

A.

Both agents and mortgage brokers will usually recommend a conveyancer, however, these referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, as there is a risk that an agent may choose the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the best value for you.

Q.

Does my conveyancing solicitor in Dursley report back to me about the amount to be paid of council tax on a Band F building prior to exchange?
