Q.

I am trying to find a solicitor that offers cheap conveyancing in Sacriston. What are the risks?

A.

Several conveyancers advertise cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately extra fees can pad the final bill. Your quote should also state third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid.Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.

Q.

How do we protect ourselves from being gazumped?

A.

The practice of rejecting a previously accepted offer on a home after a new buyer makes a more attractive offer is called gazumping. Although gazumping is less common in a declining market, there will always be a danger. You should instruct your property solicitor as soon as you can to reduce the chance of your transaction being gazumped.

Q.
