Can you confirm your cheapest fee for a £581,000 property? We are trying to find a discount conveyancing quote.


The lack of clarity surrounding this issue catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many firms promote theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately additional charges are often hiding in the terms of engagement that homeowners often do not check. Costslisted in the small print needs to be fair. They come into force only if your lawyer must perform additional tasks in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.


At what point is it wise to instruct a solicitor in Kirkby Stephen?


With a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, earlier is preferable. Instructing your solicitor earlier for a sale can mean that prior to marketing the property, documents can be prepared to make it potentially more attractive to motivated buyers, 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.


Is a property survey required if we are purchasing property?


It is strongly recommended that you book a surveyor. Numerous issues can affect a property. These can include chimney defects. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.
