How do I get affordable conveyancing?


This matter affects many buyers who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process. Many conveyancers promote 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional costs are often hiding in the terms of engagement. Any fees ought to be reasonable and clear. They be applicable solely where your solicitor is required to complete extra work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.


I have to complete on the legal process a leasehold apartment within 6 weeks, are you fast Islington solicitors ?


Our carefully selected solicitors have an extremely proactive method to fulfilling the legal process.

Our home moving lawyers approach is different as we use cutting edge IT and online systems .

We also give vendors a CQS conveyancing property lawyer prepared to communicate with the entire buyer and seller chain e.g. lenders, to fulfil a quick exchange.


How many mortgage lenders in Islington do you work with?


Of lenders with offices proximate to Islington, we with all the major companies. Islington lenders and mortgage specialists include London Mortgage Advice, 3 Drayton Park, London, N5 1NU, Think Of Mortgages, 85-87 Bayham St, London, NW1 0AG, and Demark Property Investments Ltd, A/283 Kingsland Rd, London, E2 8AS.


I am buying a home in the parish of St Marylebone Christ Church. Is a chancel search appropriate?

A conveyancing lawyer is likely to recommend a chancel search, regardless of the parish where the home being bought is located. Although some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have exercised their right to impose chancel repairs on owners, a conveyancing solicitor cannot verify that a parish where chancel repair fees have not been paid previously will not be so in future, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.


I am purchasing a modern property, should we have 'conveyancing searches' carried out?


Conveyancing searches are queries ordered in the interest of the purchaser, for example a commons registration search, and refer specifically to issues and defects relating to the property's legal title.


Would it be a silly move to carry out the DIY conveyancing ourselves.


There is no argument why a home buyer should not look after the legal work yourself. That said, a solicitor in Islington is in charge of a long list of actions ranging from chasing mortgage offer or notifying parties of completion most of which require a qualified solicitor. In any event however, solicitors firms are duty bound to get professional indemnity insurance to protect you from any errors made by the lawyer.


Our estate agent in Hackney has suggested the law firm whom they usually use. Will it be easier to use this firm?


An agent in Hackney may endorse a conveyancer, however, these referrals should be compared to other online or local firms, as an agent may choose whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the best value for you.


Is your panel of solicitors experienced enough to move quickly on the legal conveyancing of auction properties in Islington?


Indeed we are property auction specialists and frequently work for buyers at auction. Our auction team property solicitors have previously worked for many bidders at regional residential property auctions including Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London, Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.

Prudent buyers at auction tend to formally instruct a fast property lawyer as rapidly as possible for a full investigation of the sellers pack before the day of the auction.

After the property auction your dedicated property conveyancing lawyer is thoroughly ready for finishing the transaction inside the limited time as usually required .
