Q.

This catches out many property buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many firms purport to offer cheap conveyancing, but additional fees are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms. Any additional fees included in the terms needs to be fair and clearly defined and only come into force where the lawyer is required to complete unexpected extra work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

How long will conveyancing legal work take? We are selling in Marchington.

A.

The amount of time taken to transfer a residence does vary. This is dependent on a number of issues affecting the property.
