Q.

I need a cheap solicitor to own a home. What should be watch out for?

A.

Many property lawyers purport to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing, but extra costs will be included in the solicitor's terms. Any costs found in terms of engagement should be reasonable and come into force only if the conveyancer must complete work beyond standard conveyancing for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid should be included on your quote. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.

Are buyers often gazumped in Kentish Town?

A.

This describes circumstances where a property seller acknowledges the 1st purchaser's offer, only to reject it in favour of a greater offer. Though being gazumped is uncommon when property prices are falling, there is still a chance. You should instruct a fast, efficient solicitor as early as possible to reduce the chance of gazumping.

Q.

When should we arrange a conveyancing solicitor?

A.

If you choose a conveyancing solicitor with 'no move, no fee' protection, the earlier in the process you can instruct a conveyancing solicitor, the better. Instructing your solicitor sooner can limit the risk of the sale or purchase falling though.
