Q.

We are looking for a discount conveyancing estimate in East Croydon. because we are on a limited budget.

A.

Several firms advertise 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. However additional fees may inflate your final bill. A quote for conveyancing in East Croydon ought to define third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid. Extra costs included in terms of engagement should be fair and reasonable. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

What causes conveyancing to seem to be so slow?

A.

The legal work involved in buying or selling East Croydon property will occasionally be held up even in the best of circumstances. The delays are on occasion unhappily beyond the conveyancing solicitor's power, we, however, know how much extra stress these can cause and endeavour to minimise the burden of these delays if it is possible to do so. Common delays may include problems with arranging a mortgage.

Q.

Should we have a contingency plan for gazumping?

A.

Gazumping describes when a buyer's offer is, following agreement, later rejected by the seller, choosing instead a second buyer's offer. The will be a danger of getting gazumped in any transaction, because offers are not binding until exchange of contracts. To reduce the likelihood of being gazumped, consider instructing a law firm as soon as you can.

Q.

Is obtaining landlord's consent to assignment of lease passed on at cost?

A.

Disbursements and fees ought to be stated on the quote for your conveyancing, with all potential additional costs clearly stated. This cost is a fee not a disbursement. It should be included in a quote for your conveyancing.

Q.

Our mortgage lender is the Co-op, what will we need to know?

A.

Buyers should be aware that, over the last two years, some lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel', potentially creating increased legal costs for purchasers. Homeward Legal, however, can act on behalf of all major UK mortgage lenders to keep legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

Does Homeward Legal look after the conveyancing for auction properties in East Croydon?

A.

We are highly experienced with property auction protocols. Traditionally unusually constructed buildings e. g. Sold with defective legal titles are included in auctions which demand greater legwork. Solicitors therefore strongly advise that purchasers formally appoint a conveyancing lawyer before the day of the auction to allow enough time for a detailed investigation of the auction legal papers.

Post auction day your selected property conveyancing lawyer is fully ready for swiftly completing the purchase in 28 days as typically required by the terms of sale.
