Q.

How do we get the cheapest conveyancing solicitors?

A.

Various solicitors offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes, however additional charges will be included in the solicitor's terms. Excited home owners, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Any extra costs found in terms and conditions should be fair and reasonable. Your quote should also state third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid.

Q.

The estate agent has suggested a law firm that they have used before. Will it be more cost-effective to instruct them?

A.

Your agent may recommend a conveyancing firm. These referrals should be compared against alternatives, as an agent may select the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the best value for you.

Q.

What is the council tax on a Thirties detached Band D building in New Milton?

Q.

How much would the cost of conveyancing searches be?

A.

The cost of searches varies somewhat, depending on the particular searches ordered. Searches are paid out to a 3rd party, and are charged 'at cost'.

Q.

As a consequence of the catastrophic flooding in the UK in April 2012 I am wondering whether conveyancing searches aren't sufficient?

A.

Property environmental searches applied for by a property lawyer in New Milton will also include a more informative Landmark flood search if it is felt necessary.

If you remain worried why not try to contact a close neighbour.

Q.

In a few weeks I am intending to be finally moving from our detached house near New Milton into a maisonette in Lyndhurst , what is the optimum stage to choose a home removal firm?

A.

We tend to encourage home sellers hold off until after the contracts have exchanged because typically an absolute move date wont have been set. For more information speak to Griffin Rob, 9 Wilton Gdns, New Milton, BH25 5UT on 07908 030600 or Rhemo Removals, 120 Old Milton Road, New Milton, BH25 6EB Phone: 01425 612364.
