Q.

How can we ensure our cheap quote is fixed? We need affordable conveyancing in Maida Hill.

Q.

For a fast conveyancing transaction on the purchase of a £411,000 property, what can we do to accelerate the transaction?

A.

Crucial to faster conveyancing is to use a proactive and experienced conveyancing solicitor. Ask these questions when identifying your conveyancer:

  • Do they offer 'instant' online quotes?
  • Which communication methods do they use? Days can be wasted waiting for letters in the post which could be emailed or faxed.
  • Do they work on a 'no sale, no fee' basis?
  • Q.

    At what point do we need to arrange a conveyancing solicitor?

    If you choose a firm with 'no move, no fee' protection, instructing as soon as possible is wise. Promptly instructing a firm can reduce any chance of your purchase or sale stalling.
