Many online and high street property lawyers promote cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional costs will be included in the terms.Q.
There is not a clear definition of fixtures and fittings, which can result in conflict once the new owner takes possession.

If buying and taking out a mortgage lender will expect a solicitor to get at least specific searches, including these searches - Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search and Environmental, and, depending on certain criteria, specific local Norfolk searches, which may include a Commons Search.Q.
The lawyer will check if the property is inside a designated conservation area and whether any modifications have essential permissions from the local planning authority.Q.
Flood searches applied for by your property lawyer in Norfolk will include the far more informative Landmark flood search if it is felt necessary.

In simple terms, the earlier, the better, as conveyancing involves various tasks which may be performed very early in the process. Some sources advocate postponing instruction until an offer is accepted, but you will then be at a serious disadvantage in the event of a contract race, or buyer eager to move quickly.
