Q.

I am looking for a low cost conveyancing quote. What should we check?

A.

Both high-street and online property lawyers purport to offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately additional charges may pad the final bill. Fees listed in terms and conditions ought to be fair and reasonable. They only apply to matters if the conveyancer must complete additional work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

Halesworth solicitors carry out varied property when instructed to act for a property buyer, but which actual searches?

A.

If buying and taking out a mortgage the mortgage lender will expect the following for Halesworth: Local Authority Search, Drainage and Water Search and Environment Search, and perhaps specific searches for instance Subsidence report.

Q.

The lender will be The Mortgage Business, is there anything we need to know?

A.

Recently, a number of lenders are now limiting the firms who can act for them. For purchasers, this can result in significantly increased legal costs. Homeward Legal, though, are able to act on behalf of most lenders, ensuring that an additional property lawyer will not be required to act for your lender.

Q.

A vital step in the conveyancing protocol involves the conveyancing solicitor conducting property environmental searches that go in detail about the Halesworth flood risk.

Q.

How long on average does it take our lawyer to handle all of the conveyancing work for a flat in a property we want to buy?

A.

Getting contracts exchanged can take anywhere from a month to three months based on any number of issues e.g. the efficiency of the vendor's property lawyer, or the length of the chain.

Q.

A number of mortgage specialists operate in Halesworth, including Direct Mortgages Consortium Ltd, 2 Great Colman St, Ipswich, IP4 2AD, Sheppard Mark, Unit 1B Penny Corner/Farthing Rd, Ipswich, IP1 5AP, and Trenter Bacon Ltd, Unit 3 The Maltings/The Quayside Maltings/High St, Mistley, Manningtree, CO11 1AL.

Q.

Are there many buyers in Halesworth gazumped?

A.

This occurs when a house seller accepts a low offer and then dismisses it, selecting instead another buyer's higher offer. It may happen weeks into a purchase. The chance of getting gazumped exists for almost any purchase. Instructing a law firm early should help to mitigate this risk.

Q.

With a property ready to buy, with no mortgage, how can we get fast conveyancing?

A.

It is a truism that instructing a experienced conveyancing solicitor is crucial to a fast conveyancing transaction. Furthermore, there are a range of tasks you as the buyer can also do to get moving sooner. These include:

  • contacting your conveyancing solicitor regularly
