Q.

How do we get fixed rate conveyancing?

A.

Lack of clarity over this matter catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many firms promote 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often additional costs are frequently hidden in the terms of engagement. Any additional costs which are listed in the terms should be fair.

Our purchase will complete on 5th September, how is stamp duty tax calculated?

Q.

Our mortgage lender will be Mortgages 1 Ltd - what do we need to be aware of?

A.

In some cases, lenders have limited the number of solicitors who can act for them. We will act for many UK mortgage lenders to keep legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

Are we in danger of gazumping?

A.

Gazumping occurs when the first buyer's offer is, following agreement, later rejected by the property seller, in preference to a greater offer. The danger of getting gazumped is present in any transaction. To reduce the likelihood of being gazumped, consider instructing a property solicitor as soon as possible.

Q.

Q.

Environmental searches may be all well and good but when one considers recent climactic events for example the fact that last year was second wettest year since on record are they the best way to ascertain enough about the ever changing Little Ilford flood risk area?

A.
