Q.

How do we get the best rates for conveyancing in New Beckenham for a £62,000 property?

A.

Various firms claim to offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes. Often extra fees may increase your final bill. Extra charges found in the small print needs to be fair and reasonable.

Q.

Scottish Widows Bank is going to be our mortgage lender, what do we need to check?

A.

Buyers should consider that, in some cases, lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel. This can mean greater legal costs for purchasers. Homeward Legal, though, are able to act on behalf of the vast majority of mortgage lenders.

Q.

Are purchasers regularly gazumped in New Beckenham?

A.

Gazumping describes circumstances where an offer is rejected, following initial acceptance, by the house seller, choosing instead a higher offer. Because acceptance of an offer is not binding on the seller until exchange of contracts, there is a chance of being gazumped. Instructing your conveyancing solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer should help to mitigate this risk.
