Q.

I am trying to find a low cost conveyancing quote in Harborne. as we are on a budget.

A.

Numerous conveyancers offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing', but extra fees may be added into small print that home owners often do not check. The disbursements to be paid must also be stated on your conveyancing quote

Q.

How do we protect ourselves from gazumping?

A.

Unfortunately, gazumping is widespread both in Harborne, and across Birmingham and the Black Country and takes place when a property owner accepts an offer and then dismisses it in favour of a better offer. The danger of getting gazumped exists for almost any purchase. You should instruct your property solicitor as early as possible to reduce the chance of your transaction being gazumped.

Q.

When in the conveyancing process is it appropriate to speak to a solicitor?

A.

The short answer is, the faster you instruct the better, as the legal work can start straight away. Early instruction of a conveyancing firm for a sale enables documents can be prepared earlier, considerably accelerating the whole process, whereas if you are buying you can shave days off the process by having the details of your instructed solicitor ready when you make an offer.

Q.

In 1 month we are anticipating to move out of our terraced home near Harborne into our new flat in Hall Green . What is the right point to select a removal company?

A.

The ideal way is for buyers to wait before agreeing the removals until such time as both sides have formally agreed a formal date that regularly happens once contracts have exchanged.

Q.

My local agent has offered the solicitor whom they usually use. Should we instruct them?

A.

It is commonplace for estate agents to recommend a conveyancing solicitor, however, these referrals should be compared against alternatives, such as local solicitors, or firms found online, as the agent may prefer to suggest the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.
