Q.

How do I find low cost conveyancing?

A.

Lack of clarity over this point catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many firms claim to offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Often extra charges may increase the final bill. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

How soon do you need to instruct a conveyancer to act for us?

A.

In the vast majority of cases, as soon as possible, as the legal work can begin immediately. Early instruction of a solicitor can reduce the likelihood of your transaction aborting.

Q.

We have a house to purchase. How do we guarantee fast conveyancing?

A.

The key to buying faster is to use a proactive conveyancer. Additionally, there are a number of things you, as the buyer, can do to speed up the process, including, asking for property searches to be ordered immediately, responding to all correspondence via the fastest means and confirming your mortgage offer.

Q.

Handling the legal work by bypassing a Gillingham conveyancing solicitor appears to be becoming possible as a buyer and seller of a home. Would it really be reckless ?

A.

Legally speaking there is no reason at all why you shouldn't look after the legal work yourself.

In reality however, a lawyer carries out a long list of functions such as chasing replies to requisitions or verifying identities of transacting parties many of which need training.

Furthermore lawyers always be covered by the appropriate indemnity insurance that ultimately protects you in the event of any errors.
