Q.

How do I find a cheap solicitor in Ongar for purchasing a residence?

A.

Several solicitors purport to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing, however extra charges may be added into the small print. Any extra charges which are listed in the terms should be reasonable and clear. They only apply in cases where your conveyancer is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

Q.

Is it likely that we would be gazumped?

A.

This occurs when a seller accepts the first buyer's offer and then rejects it, opting for a higher offer. It may happen even months into a transaction. The will be a risk of getting gazumped in any transaction, because offers are not binding until exchange of contracts. To reduce the likelihood of being gazumped, consider instructing a conveyancing solicitor early.
