Q.

How do we find fixed rate conveyancing in Fairfield?

A.

Several firms promote theoretically cheap conveyancing. However extra costs will be included in the terms of engagement. Third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid should also be included on your conveyancing quote Any additional costs listed in terms of engagement should be fair. They only apply in cases where the solicitor must complete work beyond standard conveyancing , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

What are Fairfield's 'conveyancing searches'?

A.

Searches are standard enquiries carried out for the buyer. These are not a substitute for a survey and are not used to identify physical problems such as unsafe chimney circulation.

Q.

Which local authority looks after Fairfield?

A.

Fairfield is located in Birmingham City Council, Council House, Victoria Square, Birmingham, B1 1BB, phone: 0121 303 1111

Q.

Doing ones own conveyancing without instructing a conveyancing solicitor in Fairfield looks to be possible as a buyer of a flat. Would it really be a smart move ?

Conceivably there is absolutely no reason why you cant do the greater majority of the your own conveyancing without assistance.

In reality however, a Fairfield lawyer takes care of a large number of functions such as drafting contracts and interpreting management accounts many of which require experience.

Q.

In what ways does my Fairfield conveyancer advise me on the potential risk of floods in the Fairfield area?

A.

Q.

What length of time does it take my designated conveyancing solicitor to exchange contracts all of the conveyancing formalities on a maisonette in a forties house we are intending to purchase?

A.

The legal process can take anywhere between 1 month and three months dependent on various factors such as the efficiency of the seller's conveyancer, or the speed of the lender.

Q.

For fast conveyancing to buy a £ 737k house, what can we do to speed up our transaction?

A.

Many buyers will, correctly, argue that contacting a proactive and experienced conveyancer is essential to a fast completion. Consider the following when selecting:

  • Do they use email?
  • Did you experience any delays when requesting a quote?
  • Will they order searches immediately?

Q.

Britannia will be our mortgage lender - is there anything we need to consider?

A.

Recently, a number of lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel', which may result in greater conveyancing costs for buyers. We, however, are able to act on behalf of all major mortgage lenders.
