Both high-street and online conveyancers advertise cheap conveyancing quotes.

We tend to encourage home buyers and sellers hold off organising removals until the contracts have exchanged as typically an actual home moving date will not have been contractually agreed. Why not try Mac Services, Bretts Farm/Romford Rd, Aveley, South Ockendon, RM15 4XD Telephone: 01708 682828.

Should I get a home surveyor to look into our house purchase in Purfleet?

A.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors firmly recommend that the majority of purchasers in Purfleet book a house surveyor to undertake a survey when purchasing in Purfleet.

Q.

Could our offer be gazumped?

A.

This describes circumstances where one purchaser's offer is accepted, and then rejected, by the owner, opting instead for a better offer. Though being gazumped is uncommon when property prices are falling, there is still a danger. Consider instructing your conveyancing solicitor as soon as you can to reduce the chance of your offer being gazumped.
