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


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


How much would my searches cost?

Is there something we can do to get out of paying SDLT?


Stamp duty reduction should not be considered. Such schemes are often uneconomical and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed meaning that the full stamp duty amount will be payable, with potential fines.


How is Great Ayton contaminated land checked when buying?

Are we in danger of gazumping?


This describes when a seller accepts a purchaser's offer, only to later reject it in favour of a second purchaser's offer. Gazumping could occur even months into a sale. There is almost always a risk of gazumping. To reduce the likelihood of being gazumped, consider instructing an efficient solicitor as soon as possible.
