Q.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many property buyers and sellers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned.

Your quote should also state the disbursements to be paid.We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

Which issues assist with guaranteeing fast conveyancing?

There are a number of tasks you, as the purchaser, can do to speed up the process, such as, answering any queries raised by your property lawyer as soon as possible, keeping in regular contact with your property lawyer and organising your finances, including arranging a mortgage.

Q.

Is a leasehold supplement a fee or disbursement?

A.

Every disbursement and fee ought to be identified on a quote for your conveyancing. This cost is a fee not a disbursement, and should be clearly stated in a quote for your conveyancing.

Q.

When in the conveyancing process is it wise to find a conveyancer?

A.

Whether buying or selling, instructing as soon as possible is wise. The legal work can then begin straight away. Instructing a firm early can reduce the likelihood of the purchase or sale stalling.

Q.

Could the fees for our conveyancing introduce any hidden charges?

Our solicitors never hide any hidden fees to buy or sell a property. Some solicitor do not give accurate quotes, only estimates. The bill you receive on completion can be much greater.

Q.

I plan to buy a barn conversion in St George Hanover Square. Will a chancel search be specified?

A.

The solicitor responsible for your move is likely to recommend that a chancel search be taken out, whichever parish where the home being bought is found. Through some Parochial Church Councils have exercised their right to impose chancel repairs on the current owners of land subject to chancel liability, there is no guarantee that a parish which has not been subject to chancel liability in the past will not automatically be the case for future owners. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.
