Q.

We are looking for a solicitors firm that offers cheap conveyancing. Will we get a quote or and estimate?

A.

Various firms offer so-called cheap conveyancing. Often additional fees will be included in the solicitor's terms. Your quote should, in addition, define any disbursements. Any fees listed in your solicitor's terms should be fair and only apply in cases where your solicitor is required to complete unexpected extra work for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

I am intending to buy in Osterley. Can we establish whether the property is in a conservation area?

A.

These areas categorise areas of historical or architectural value. A property solicitor will confirm potential liability for unauthorised works and be able to offer more information.

Q.

We are on a very limited budget , Will doing the conveyancing on a DIY basis without the help of a property lawyer in Osterley save any cash?

There are no reasons why a home buyer cant adopt a DIY approach and look after the bulk of the conveyancing without the help of a qualified Osterley solicitor.

In reality however, a lawyer is in charge of a long list of activities including chasing outstanding papers and interpreting management accounts most of which are better done by someone with a qualified professional.

More importantly have a go conveyancers take huge risks in operating without the applicable indemnity cover which firms and their solicitors will be covered by.

Q.

What will the Osterley property solicitor advise if the maisonette is inside the boundary of a Hounslow council conservation area and turns out to have unauthorised cladding fitted to it?

A.

The local authority search (LLC1 - Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search) conducted by your solicitor should determine if the property is inside a conservation area proof of local authority approval for changes to the property will be requested.

Q.

For our mortgage lender, we have chosen Paragon Mortgages, what do we need to know?

A.

A small number of lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel'. This can mean higher conveyancing costs for buyers. We can act for many lenders in the UK.

Q.

What does 'fixtures and fittings' mean?

A.

Generally speaking, there is no clear definition of 'fixtures and fittings'. The fixtures and fittings form is intended to avoid confusion, clarifying to both parties what items will stay, and which will be removed.

Q.

We need a quick sale, does your firm work with any fast home moving solicitors in Osterley ?

A.

Yes, We maintain that our property lawyers by default adopt a speed focused method when finishing the legal process for sellers

We only allocate you to property lawyers which always communicate through all parts of the home buyer and seller chain . Additionally , our property lawyers are picked because they implement expensive document and form assembly and technology systems to exchange on your sale fast.

Q.

Our agent has named the solicitors firm. Is it advisable to instruct this solicitor?

A.

It is common practice for agents in Shipston on Stour to suggest a law firm to handle your conveyancing. Such referrals should be considered carefully, as an agent may select the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.
