Norfolk data:

The nearest station to Norfolk is Attleborough, almost 9 miles away. The nearest airport to Norfolk is Norwich International Airport (17 miles).

Dereham is a relatively close hospital.

Q.

We need a discount conveyancing quote. What are the risks?

A.

Many online and high street property lawyers promote cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional costs will be included in the terms.

Q.

The property seller has added unfitting roof aerials on the property which might possibly conflict with Foulsham conservation area guidelines.

A.

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.

To complete on our property purchase ASAP, can we ensure a fast exchange and completion in Norfolk?

A.

As is often argued, moving faster is essential to instruct a proactive property lawyer. Furthermore, there are numerous tasks you, as the purchaser, can also do to get moving sooner. These include:

  • quickly answering your property lawyer's questions (by email if possible)
  • organising your finances
  • calling or emailing your property lawyer, and chase them if you suspect any delays

Q.

How can we avoid being gazumped?

A.

The practice of deciding to reject an offer which has been accepted after a new buyer makes a more attractive offer is called gazumping. Although being gazumped is less common in a declining market, there will always be a chance. You should instruct an efficient solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer to reduce the chance of gazumping.

Q.

How many weeks does the conveyancing process need? We have a buyer ready.

A.

The number of weeks needed to sell or purchase a property will vary, with reference to a handful of legal considerations which may include where a party does not quickly respond an enquiry. With our Norfolk property specialists, the matter receives fast and efficient service.

Q.

Are your property lawyers experienced enough to move fast on auction conveyancing in Norfolk?

A.

Our team deal with auctions throughout the UK and often carry out work for buyers at auction. Our niche auction team of property lawyers have in the past been instructed by numerous vendors at regional auctions such as Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London, Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.

Wise bidders always decide on a firm as fast as they can to allow adequate time for a full review of the sellers documents well in advance of the auction day arrives.

Subsequently, immediately after the auction day, a lawyer has to be geared up to conclude the conveyancing process inside the usual 28 days as typically required by the standard auction conditions.
