Q.

How do I get the best conveyancing rates in Great Stanmore for a £596,000 house?

A.

Confusion over this topic catches out many sellers and buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many firms advertise cheap conveyancing, however additional costs can inflate the final invoice. Extra charges found in the terms needs to be reasonable and clear.

I have taken out a quote from you. May we need to pay any supplementary hidden costs?

A.

No. Our solicitors never charge any hidden extra fees to transact a property.

Q.

Are pre-completion searches disbursements or fees?

A.

Comparing quotes is not always straightforward, given the different terminology. These costs are disbursements not fees, and is passed on to the buyer at cost.

Q.

Nationwide will be our mortgage lender, is there anything we need to be aware of?

Purchasers should consider that, in some cases, lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel', resulting in higher legal costs for buyers if their solicitor cannot act for the lender. Homeward Legal will act for the majority of mortgage lenders.

The internet has many online explanatory studies about on the subject of doing the legal work yourself. Do I therefore need a Great Stanmore solicitor ?

A.

Legally speaking there is no argument why a seller cant go down that route and handle the your own conveyancing on your own. However, a property lawyer takes care of a large number of exercises including drafting contracts or checking that the contract package is in order most of which really need training. Moreover solicitors practices will be covered by cover that protects you in the event of omissions.
