I am looking for affordable conveyancing. and what is included?


Many law firms claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra charges will be included in small print. Excited buyers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Any additional charges listed in the small print needs to be clearly defined.

We are buying in Hatfield. How can we check if the property is in a conservation area?


Conservation areas detail regions defined as being of 'special architectural and historic interest'. Your conveyancing solicitor will offer more information and discuss the relevant responsibilities you would be taking on by purchasing in a conservation area.


What does a Hatfield conveyancing solicitor do when the property I want to buy is situated in a local authority conservation area and has unsuitable doors added?


A lawyer will make enquiries to confirm if the property is inside a conservation area, and if so whether any modifications have necessary permissions.


When in the process should you arrange a conveyancer to handle our purchase?


If you use a firm offering a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, instructing as soon as possible is wise. Some authors recommend postponing instruction until an offer is accepted, but delays can risk the other side pulling out, particularly in uncertain market conditions.
