Q.

How do we get low cost conveyancing?

A.

This catches out many home owners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many law firms offer cheap conveyancing. However extra charges are frequently hidden in the small print which unwary home owners fail to check. Any extra charges which are listed in the terms needs to be fair and be applicable if the lawyer is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

What do we need to know about 'fixtures and fittings'?

A.

House purchasers in Mansfield will often be frustrated with the lack of formality over which fixtures and fittings should be included. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.

Q.
