Q.

We are trying to find fixed rate conveyancing. How do I get a quote?

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this issue affects many home owners who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process. Many conveyancers claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing', but additional fees will be included in small print. This small print is often not read by home owners in a hurry. Your Langstone conveyancing quote ought to list costs to be paid to third parties, including search providers, (disbursements). Any additional fees included in your solicitor's terms needs to be fair.

Q.

What does the Langstone conveyancing solicitor do when the flat I am intending to buy is in a conservation area and has conspicuous cladding installed?

Your instructed lawyer will make enquiries to find out whether the property is located within a designated conservation area, and if so, whether any modifications have necessary permissions from the local authority.

For fast legal work to buy a £ 142,000 house, what can we do to speed up our move?
