Q.

How do we find the best rates for conveyancing in Leek for a £476,000 house?

A.

Numerous firms purport to offer so-called cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately extra fees can pad the final invoice. Any fees should be clearly defined.

Topaz Finance will be our mortgage lender - what will I need to know?

Buyers need to be aware that some lenders have limited the firms who can act for them, resulting in increased legal costs for home buyers in cases where the property lawyer cannot act for their lender, and another must also be instructed. Homeward Legal will act on behalf of the vast majority of UK mortgage lenders to keep legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

Are many buyers in Leek gazumped?

A.

This occurs when a house seller accepts the 1st buyer's offer and then rejects it, selecting instead a better offer. There is almost always a danger of gazumping. The first step in reducing the chance that gazumping will effect you is to instruct an efficient solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer.
