Q.

How do I get low cost conveyancing?

A.

This matter catches out many buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many property lawyers offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra charges will be included in the small print. Extra fees included in the small print should be reasonable. They be applicable if the lawyer must complete work beyond standard conveyancing on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Any disbursements should also be included on the conveyancing quote. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

What will contaminate land in Long Melford. Are they an issue?

A.

Residential property would be contaminated by many naturally-occurring factors, and an environmental search should reveal if a property can be impacted by contaminants in the region like overhead transmission lines and pollution incidents.

Q.

My partner and I are purchasing in Long Melford. Can we find out if the property is in a conservation area?

A.

There are several conservation areas around Long Melford. A solicitor will address the consequences of purchasing property in a conservation area.

Q.

How much can the charges for my conveyancing searches total?

A.

The cost of conveyancing searches can vary. They are disbursements paid to a third party, and are charged at cost.

Q.

Is there anything we are supposed to do to make our Long Melford conveyancing faster?

A.

Contacting a experienced solicitor is the key to fast conveyancing. There are numerous tasks you as the purchaser can do, such as, calling or emailing your solicitor, and chase them if you suspect any delays, promptly answering your solicitor's questions (by email if possible) and getting your mortgage offer in place.

Q.

At what point do I need to find a conveyancer?

A.

Whether buying or selling, the sooner you instruct a firm, the better. The legal work can then start straight away. Some groups suggest waiting before instruction until an offer is accepted, but doing so will put you at a disadvantage compared to better prepared buyers, or if your buyer decides to pull out due to delays.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Long Melford?

A.
