Q.

What are the best conveyancing rates for a £432k property?

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this matter catches out many home owners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many conveyancers promote theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately extra charges can increase the final invoice. Extra charges which are listed in terms and conditions needs to be fair and clearly defined. They be applied only where the solicitor is required to complete extra work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Your conveyancing quote ought to list any disbursements to be paid.

Q.

How much can the conveyancing searches in East Cowes be?

A.

Conveyancing searches ranges in cost, and will be dependent on your lender's requirements. Searches are paid out to a 3rd party.

Q.

Should we make use of the firm of solicitors offered by our agent?

A.

It is commonplace for agents to suggest a solicitor. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, an agent may decide to recommend whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the most appropriate choice.

Q.

To complete on our purchase ASAP, can we arrange a fast conveyancing process?

A.

Experienced buyers will tell you that instructing a proactive and experienced lawyer is crucial to a fast completion. There are, however, several things you can also do, including, asking for property searches to be ordered immediately, replying to your lawyer by phone, fax or email and if you intend to get a house survey, doing so as early as you can.

Q.

What environmental concerns can impact land in East Cowes, and should they be a problem?

A.

Many of contaminants may seriously affect residential property in East Cowes, and factors like shallow mining will be investigated during the conveyancing process.

Q.

Do we need a survey for our property purchase?

A.

It is firmly advised that you arrange a home buyer survey. A wide range of issues can affect a property, for example ground movement. Such issues will not be considered during the conveyancing work itself.

Q.

How long on average should I expect it to take our solicitor to finish the conveyancing process for a maisonette in a property we are intending to purchase?

A.

The legal process can take anywhere between 1 month and 3 months dependent on various issues, like the speed of the vendor's solicitor, or whether your solicitor has to act for your lender.

Q.

At what point do you need to speak to a conveyancer to act on our purchase?

A.

Simply, as soon as possible. Early instruction of a firm to act on your East Cowes sale or purchase for a purchase may mean that your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed, or, if you are selling a property, prior to marketing the property, documents can be prepared to make it potentially more attractive to motivated buyers.
