Q.

How do we get a discount conveyancing quote?

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many property buyers and sellers paying out more than they anticipated in the end. Many firms offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional charges will be included in small print. Excited property buyers and sellers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Applicable disbursements should also be clearly stated on your conveyancing quote

Q.

We are on a deadline and will need to get fast conveyancing, what should we do?

A.

Key to a fast conveyancing transaction is to use a proactive, diligent conveyancer. Beyond that, there are a number of things you, as the buyer, can also do, such as, requesting regular updates from your conveyancer and keep the pressure on, arranging your mortgage offer and quickly answering your conveyancer's questions.

Q.

Q.

The estate agent we're using in Hurworth has referred the lawyer which they often use. Is it advisable to instruct this firm?

A.

Many agents in Hurworth have arrangements with solicitors whereby they refer conveyancing work to them. These referrals should be considered carefully, as some agents choose the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

What environmental concerns will contaminate land in Frant?

A.

Residential property would be contaminated by numerous factors caused by man and by nature, like a proximate telecommunications base station or landfill sites. An environmental search will offer more detail.

Q.

Having read about the fact that 2012 was second wettest year since 1920 we are apprehensive that conveyancing searches (environmental) won't be exacting enough?

A.

A good property lawyer in Frant should always include property conveyancing searches if the initial conveyancing searches spots a risk.

Perhaps you could converse with a neighbour for additional extra information.

Q.

Should we get a chancel search if I am buying in the parish of Falmer, near Frant?

A.

Regardless of the Frant parish in which you are buying, the solicitor may suggest that a chancel search is taken out. In older areas of Frant, chancel repair can be imposed on new owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils may have spared previous owners or tenants, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Q.

What length of time should I expect it to take the property solicitor to conduct all of the conveyancing formalities on the top floor of Regency house we are purchasing?

A.

It can take anywhere between one month and twelve weeks, which can be affected by various issues e.g. the efficiency of the seller's conveyancing solicitor, or the speed of managing agents.
