Q.

How do we identify a genuinely cheap fee? I am trying to find fixed rate Ryhope conveyancing.

A.

Many solicitors offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however extra charges will be included in the small print. Any extra charges should be reasonable and clear. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Are conveyancing searches necessary?

A.

These searches are a prescribed bundle of enquiries requested by your conveyancer. Searches are unrelated to a building survey and do not include information relating to a property's structure.

For what reason does the purchase conveyancing process in Ryhope need such a long time?

A.

The conveyancing process may be subject to numerous interruptions or delays. Homeward Legal do our best to minimise their consequences by driving the transaction forward.

Q.

The estate agent we're using in Callerton has referred the solicitors firm which they often use. Will it be cheaper to instruct this solicitor?

A.

If you instruct a conveyancing solicitor through this route, you your agent may be able to use their influence to pressure a solicitor to wrap up the process as soon as possible. Such referrals should be thoroughly considered, as some agents may 'recommend' the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

How long does the conveyancing process need? The property is also local.

A.

The amount of time taken to transact a house can vary. This is influenced by a number of issues such as matters where a property has a mortgage. Eight to twelve weeks is the industry-wide average, but we aim to complete the process within six weeks.

Q.
