Q.

We are trying to find a solicitors firm that offers cheap conveyancing. Can you assist?

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this issue catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many conveyancers promote cheap conveyancing. However additional charges are often hiding in the terms and conditions. Any disbursements must also be stated on a Middleton conveyancing quote. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

The web is full of an increasing number manuals giving details on doing your own legal work such as House Buying, Selling and Conveyancing: How to Save Estate Agent and Solicitor Fees When Buying or Selling Property . Do I actually have to use property lawyer in Middleton ?

A.

Technically, there is no reason at all why a home mover should not conduct conveyancing on your own.

In reality however, a property lawyer in Middleton is familiar with a significant number of functions ranging from chasing completion statements and notifying all parties of exchange some of which require a qualified solicitor. Despite that lawyers will take out cover to protect you in the event of any negligence.

Q.

Which issues are key to get fast conveyancing?

A.

As is often argued, instructing a proactive, diligent solicitor is the key to faster conveyancing. There are a range of things you can do, such as, calling or emailing your solicitor, and chase them if you suspect any delays, quickly answering your solicitor's questions (by email if possible) and confirming your mortgage offer.

Q.

The lender will be Bradford and Bingley - is there anything I need to know?

A.

Traditionally, solicitors could carry out mortgage-related work for most lenders. In some cases, lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel, potentially creating higher legal costs for buyers. We, fortunately, can act for all large CML-approved lenders, ensuring that an additional solicitor will not be required to act for your lender.
