How do I find affordable conveyancing?

A.

The confusion over this matter catches out many property buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately extra charges are often hiding in the solicitor's terms. Additional charges should be reasonable.

Do we need to be nervous about gazumping?

A.

This describes circumstances where an offer is, following agreement, later rejected by the property seller, in preference to a greater offer. The risk of getting gazumped exists for almost any purchase. Instructing your conveyancing solicitor early is a key first step to reducing this risk.

What makes the conveyancing process to be so delayed?

A.

The conveyancing process may be held up even in the best of circumstances. In some cases, the delays are out of your solicitor's control.
