Q.

I am looking for the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Great Ayton. Will I get a quote or and estimate?

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this point affects many buyers who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process. Many property lawyers advertise supposedly cheap conveyancing. However additional charges are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms of engagement. These terms are often ignored by excited buyers, eager to get underway. Charges included in terms and conditions needs to be reasonable and clear and only apply to matters if the lawyer must complete work beyond standard conveyancing on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Applicable disbursements should also be included on the quote

Q.

How is stamp duty calculated and what will we need to pay on a £593000 residence?

A.

The SDLT payable is calculated based on a small range of considerations, including the value of the house, and whether it is in a 'disadvantaged area'. For a property valued at £593000, SDLT will be £23720.*

Q.

The estate agent we're using in Meopham has named the property lawyer that they have used before. Should we use this solicitor?

Your agent will often endorse a conveyancing firm. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, there is a risk that the agent may suggest the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.

Q.

Great Ayton conveyancers conduct formal property conveyancing searches when instructed by a home purchase client - what actual ones?

A.

Q.

We have a found a freehold property to buy. How do we guarantee fast conveyancing?

A.

The key to a fast completion is to use a proactive, diligent lawyer. Additionally, there are numerous things you could do to speed up the legal work, such as, keeping in regular contact with the lawyer, quickly answering your lawyer's questions and getting your mortgage offer in place.

Q.

How soon do you need to instruct a conveyancing solicitor?

A.

In the vast majority of cases, the sooner you instruct a firm, the better. A number of sources suggest holding off instruction until an offer has been firmly agreed, but delays can risk the other side pulling out, particularly in uncertain market conditions.
