Q.

How can we ensure our cheap quote is fixed? We need to find a low cost conveyancing quote in Handforth.

A.

Many property lawyers promote theoretically cheap conveyancing. Often additional costs are often hiding in the terms of engagement. Excited buyers and sellers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. A conveyancing quote ought to define any disbursements. Any charges needs to be fair. Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

In 2 months we are going to move from our semi detached residence in Handforth to a flat in Hartford . What is the optimum stage to select a removal company?

A.

We usually advocate that home sellers put off booking a removals company until the point where formal exchange of contracts because an agreed move date will not have been set.

Q.

Should I be worried about gazumping?

A.

The custom of deciding to reject a previously accepted offer when a higher offer is made by a second buyer is referred to as gazumping. The chance of gazumping exists for almost any purchase.

The first step in reducing the chance that gazumping will effect you is to instruct a conveyancing solicitor as soon as possible.

Q.

Do we need to instruct a solicitor suggested by our estate agent?

A.

Estate agent recommendations are a common route to find a solicitor, however, such referrals should be compared to other online or local firms, as some agents may 'recommend' the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.

Q.

My mortgage lender is Precise Mortgages, what will I need to consider?

A.

When purchasing with a mortgage, your lender will require legal work to be carried out on their behalf. Buyers need to be aware that a small number of lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel', resulting in increased conveyancing costs for home buyers in cases where the solicitor cannot act for their lender, and another must also be instructed. Homeward Legal can act for all major CML-approved lenders.
