Q.

We are trying to find a cheap Rainhill solicitor to own a property. What do we need to consider?

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many property buyers and sellers paying out more than they anticipated in the end, and many law firms advertise so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however additional costs may increase the final bill. Any extra costs found in the small print should be fair and clearly defined and only apply to matters if your conveyancer is required to complete extra work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

I am buying a Rainhill house with Swansea Building Society - what will I need to know?

A.

Traditionally, solicitors could carry out mortgage-related work for most lenders. Some lenders have limited the number of solicitors who can act for them. We, however, will act for most lenders so that the buyer will not have to pay your lender's legal costs.

Q.

Is Rainhill soil possibly contaminated by molybdenum (Mo)?

A.

There are comprehensive regulations to limit soil contamination. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including groundwater contamination.

Q.

Is an environmental search a disbursement or fee?

A.

A good quote will clearly list all fees and disbursements. This charge is a disbursement not a fee, meaning the solicitor passes on the charge at cost.

Q.

When in the process do I need to instruct a conveyancer to handle our transaction?

A.

Whether you are buying or selling in Rainhill, the earlier, the better. Some sources suggest holding off instruction until a chain is completed, but doing so will put you at a disadvantage compared to better prepared buyers, or if your buyer decides to pull out due to delays.

Q.

To complete on our purchase ASAP, can we ensure a fast exchange and completion?

A.

Many buyers will, correctly, argue that finding a experienced conveyancing solicitor is key fast Rainhill conveyancing. There are, however, numerous tasks you as the buyer can also do to accelerate the process, including, requesting status updates from the conveyancing solicitor regularly, replying to your conveyancing solicitor by phone, fax or email and organising your finances, including arranging a mortgage.

Q.

Doing ones own conveyancing without the help of a Rainhill property lawyer appears to be becoming possible when selling a house but would it really be reckless ?

A.

There is no argument why you cannot carry out the bulk of the legal and technical work without an experienced conveyancing solicitor in Rainhill. That said, a property lawyer takes care of a huge number of exercises ranging from approving completion statements or interpreting planning contraventions which require adequate training. Fundamentally amateur lawyers do not have the appropriate cover which practicing legal firms are under a duty to carry.

Q.

Could our property legal fees hide any hidden costs?

A.

No. We will not charge any hidden fees. It may be that a large volume of additional work is necessary, but any fees for this work will only be incurred with your knowledge.
