Q.

How do we get the best conveyancing rates in Romney for a £582,000 house?

A.

Many solicitors offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing', but additional fees are often hiding in the terms of engagement, left unregarded by busy buyers Additional fees which are listed in terms of engagement needs to be reasonable and only apply in cases where your solicitor must complete additional work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The quote should state any disbursements to be paid.Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

What amount of time may the legal work to transfer a house take, in your experience? We need to move quickly.

A.

The time needed to transact residential property varies, with reference to a broad set of issues affecting the property. Our lawyers ensure each client is undertaken with the utmost care and speed.

Q.

Which local authority looks after Romney?

A.

Romney is located in Dacorum Borough Council, Hemel Hempstead Civic Centre, Marlowes, Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire, HP1 1HH, Call: 01442 228 000

Q.

The web is full of a plethora of very helpful manuals going into great depth on by passing the solicitor e.g. leasehold Flats & Houses a supplement to Bradshaw's Guide to DIY House Buying, Selling & Conveyancing .

That being the case, do I need to instruct a Romney conveyancer ?A.

There are no arguments why you should not look after the greater majority of the legal process without the help of a dedicated conveyancing solicitor in Romney. That said, a conveyancing solicitor takes care of a significant number of actions e.g. chasing deeds and applying for searches many of which need adequate training.

Q.

My local agent has offered a solicitors firm. Is it advisable to use this firm?

A.

Many agents in Blackley will have a referral arrangement with solicitors whereby they refer conveyancing work to them. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, an agent may select whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the most suitable for you.

Q.

How do I stop being gazumped?

A.

Gazumping occurs when a property seller agrees to an offer, only to refuse it in favour of a second purchaser's offer. Because acceptance of an offer is not binding on the seller until exchange of contracts, there is a chance of gazumping. The first step in reducing the chance that gazumping will effect you is to instruct your conveyancing solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer.

Q.

What makes conveyancing in Romney to take weeks to complete?

A.

The legal work required to buy or sell a property can potentially be delayed, we, however, do our best to minimise their effect wherever a difference can be made by proactively handling all enquiries.

Q.

Should I get searches for chancel liability if you are buying a flat near a rectory built in the 1200s in Romney?

A.

Owners of property near to church property in the locality may be required to contribute towards the cost of repairs. This is referred to as chancel repair liability. Insurance may be available to protect a buyer should a Romney Parochial Church Council enforce liability.
