Numerous solicitors claim to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra fees are often hiding in the terms of engagement. Fees listed in terms and conditions needs to be reasonable and clear and come into force only if your solicitor is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.Q.
Conveyancing and environmental searches handled by a Edgbaston conveyancing solicitor should also include the far more specialist Landmark flood search if the risk warrants it.

Buyers should know that, in some cases, lenders have limited the firms who can act for them, which may result in increased legal costs for buyers. Homeward Legal can act for all major lenders in the UK, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.Q.
Instructing a proactive conveyancing solicitor is key buying faster. You should consider:
Gazumping takes place when an offer is accepted but then rejected by the property owner, in preference to a higher offer. Because acceptance of an offer is not binding on the seller until exchange of contracts, there is a risk of being gazumped. You should instruct a solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer to reduce the chance of gazumping.Q.
A wide range of contaminants caused by environmental factors can harm the resale value of property in Edgbaston, like nearby electrical substations or sand or gravel pits. An environmental search will offer more detail. Strensham W T W, Mill Lane, Worcestershire, B15 3AY, for example, may be a source of local contamination.Q.
Some conveyancers hide fees which should be included as disbursements. It may not be clear whether a cost is a fee or not, and if it should be included. This cost is a fee not a disbursement. It should be included in your quote.
