Q.

We are trying to find low cost conveyancing in Lambeth. How do we get a quote?

A.

Many firms offer supposedly cheap conveyancing, but additional charges are frequently hidden in the terms and conditions. Excited homeowners, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Additional fees found in terms of engagement should be reasonable and clear and be applied only where your lawyer is required to complete unexpected extra work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

How much will the conveyancing searches be?

A.

The cost of searches will vary noticeably, depending on the searches chosen. Searches are disbursements.

Q.

At what point is it wise to instruct a conveyancing solicitor to act on our purchase?

A.

In the majority of situations, the earlier, the better, as conveyancing involves various tasks that may be performed straight away. Early instruction of a solicitor to act on your Lambeth sale or purchase for a sale allows information, especially

from slow third-parties, can be requested even prior to accepting an offer, whereas if you are buying your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed.
