Q.

What will the overall charge be on the sale of a £478,000 property? We need to find a low cost conveyancing estimate in Egremont.

A.

Many online and high street law firms claim to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra costs will be included in the solicitor's terms which unwary home owners fail to check. Extra fees which are listed in the terms ought to be reasonable and only come into force where your conveyancer must complete work beyond standard conveyancing on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

Do property searches make a difference?

A.

Searches are standard enquiries ordered by the purchaser's property solicitor, for example a gypsum search. These searches provide much needed information, however they deal with issues and defects relating to the property's legal title.

Q.

When do you need to instruct a solicitor to handle our sale?

A.

In the majority of situations, as soon as possible, as there are several tasks that may be performed immediately. Prompt instruction of a conveyancing solicitor to act for you on your Egremont transaction for a sale may mean that information, especially from slow third-parties, can be requested even prior to accepting an offer, whereas if you are buying your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed.

Q.

A.

Q.

Which property conveyancing searches should my conveyancer in Egremont carry out when acting on a Egremont house?

A.

The common legal protocol is to get Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal), Environmental and Gypsum Mining Search and, depending on certain criteria, area-specific searches e.g. a Official Search of whole without priority.

Q.

My local agent has suggested a solicitors firm which they often use. Is it risky to instruct them?

A.

Agent referrals are a commonplace path for purchasers to get a solicitor. These referrals must be compared with other local solicitors, or better-value firms found online, as the agent may recommend whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the best value for you.
