Q.

I am looking for a cheap Okehampton solicitor to own a house. What are the risks?

A.

This catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many conveyancers claim to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often additional costs are frequently hidden in the terms and conditions. Excited buyers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Additional fees which are listed in the terms should be fair. They be applied only where the solicitor must complete unanticipated additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Any disbursements should also be clearly stated on a quote

Q.

DIY conveyancing without a Okehampton conveyancer appears to be becoming possible as a buyer of a home. Would it be a false economy ?

A.

There is no reason why a home seller cant go down that route and take care of he bulk of the conveyancing without solicitor in Okehampton. However, a conveyancing solicitor is familiar with a large array of actions such as chasing lender for comments on issues raised and identifying the most appropriate searches many of which are better done by someone with adequate training.

Fundamentally do it yourself conveyancers will not have acceptable professional indemnity insurance that lawyers are required by the Law Society to be covered by.

Q.

Is your solicitor team able to handle fast completions on property auction conveyancing in Okehampton?

Following the actual auction a prepared lawyer will be able to concentrate on swiftly get through the legal work within 28 days as usually required by the standard auction conditions.

Q.

How soon should we arrange a solicitor?

A.

If you use a firm offering a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, instructing as soon as possible is wise. Some groups advocate holding off instruction until the 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.

Q.

What can a Okehampton property lawyer do when the flat we want to buy is located in a registered conservation area and has an un-consented window frames fitted?

A.

Your lawyer to ascertain if the property is affected by a designated conservation area, and if so whether any alterations have appropriate consents from the West Devon council.
