Q.

We are looking for a discount conveyancing quote. What do I need to check for?

A.

This catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many solicitors offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. However additional costs can inflate the solicitor's invoice. Additional fees found in your solicitor's terms should be fair and reasonable. Your conveyancing quote should, in addition, define costs to be paid to third parties, e.g. the Land Registry, (disbursements).

Q.

When in the process do I need to get a conveyancer?

A.

Whether buying or selling, instructing as soon as possible is wise, as the legal work can begin very early in the process. Some suggest waiting before instruction until a chain is completed, but you will then be at a serious disadvantage in the event of a contract race, or buyer eager to move quickly.

Q.

Which issues are key to arrange fast legal work?

A.

Experienced buyers will tell you that instructing a proactive, diligent lawyer is the key to a faster move. When selecting a lawyer, : What methods of communication do they use? Posting documents can adds days of waiting to a purchase. Do they work on a 'no sale, no fee' basis? Do they offer 'instant' online quotes?
