Q.

We need to find fixed rate conveyancing. How do we get a quote?

A.

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.

Should we opt for the firm of solicitors who works with by our local agent?

A.

If you instruct a firm referred this way, you your agent may be able to move the conveyancing process along. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, an agent may select the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the best value for you.

Q.

To complete on our leasehold flat purchase ASAP, how do we aim for a fast exchange and completion in Marchington?

A.

Most importantly, a fast conveyancing transaction is key to instruct a proactive, diligent conveyancer. When finding a conveyancer, ask yourself the following: Do they use email as the preferred mode of communication? Do they offer 'no move, no fee' protection? This can incentivise a faster transaction. Was there a delay delivering a quote?
