Q.

How do we get the cheapest Plumstead conveyancing quote?

A.

Many online and high street conveyancers purport to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often additional charges are often hiding in the terms. This small print is often not read by home owners in a hurry. Any disbursements should also be included on a conveyancing quote.

Q.

Does your company handle the conveyancing of auction properties in Plumstead?

A.

We are highly experienced with bidders at auction. Regularly hard to value houses like properties requiring improvement, are bought in property auctions and these need further due diligence. We therefore suggest buyers to formally instruct a conveyancing lawyer well before the property auction date to allow adequate time for a detailed report.

After the property auction, a property lawyer must be geared up to carry out the auction conveyancing process in under 28 days as conventionally required by the terms and conditions of sale.
