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.

Can we verify if the property we are buying is in a conservation area?

A.

Buyers in Frant should be aware of a number of local conservation areas. Your conveyancing solicitor will be able to advise further, in regard to relevant conservation area restrictions in Frant.

Q.

Can we avoid paying out for HMRC stamp duty?

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?

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.

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.
