Q.

How do we find affordable conveyancing?

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many buyers paying out more than they anticipated in the end, and many property lawyers advertise 'the cheapest conveyancing'. However additional costs are often hiding in the solicitor's terms. The online quote calculator can generate an accurate statement of the legal fees for the property you plan to buy.

A.

Effort is made in and around Marylebone to identify topsoil contamination. The local authority for Marylebone will be able to provide more detail on cases of contamination.

Q.

A good conveyancing solicitor in Marylebone will also get detailed environmental searches if the environmental searches spots a significant risk Marylebone flooding risk.

Q.

What type of local searches concerning the potential risk of possible flooding to properties in Westminster will my Marylebone solicitor actually conduct for a Sixties property I am going to purchase?

A.

Q.

Our mortgage lender is Scottish Building Society, what will we need to be aware of?

A.

Some lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel', which may result in greater legal costs for property purchasers. We, fortunately, can act for many lenders so that you will not be required to pay the lender's costs.

Q.

Are searches that important?

A.

Conveyancing searches are a collection of queries ordered by the solicitor with several authorities, for example a British waterways search. Purchasers should know that, searches refer specifically to legal facets of the purchase.

Q.

Is a Professional Indemnity fee a disbursement or fee?

A.

It may be unclear if an itemised charge is a fee or disbursement. This cost, for example, is a fee not a disbursement, and will normally be included in a quote.
