Q.

How do we find the best conveyancing rates for a 242,000 property?

This catches out many home owners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors promote theoretically cheap conveyancing. However additional charges will be included 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.

Q.

How much time can the conveyancing process require, on average? We have a buyer ready.

A.

In general, the amount of time needed to sell or purchase a property does vary, with reference to several issues which may affect the property. 8 to 12 weeks is the average for many firms, we however take a proactive approach, driving the sale or purchase to complete sooner.

Q.

In about four weeks we are likely to be finally moving out of our detached house near Mersea Island into a newer flat in Manningtree , at what point to instruct a removal company?

A.

The ideal approach is for buyers to wait before arranging removals until such time as everyone has fixed a formal move date that normally happens once contracts are signed.
