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.

Does the report on title prepared by the Sacriston conveyancing solicitor advise on the amount of council tax for a Band C property before contracts are exchanged?

A.

A lawyer will contact the governing local council to ascertain the up to date council tax rates, which will then be set out in the report on title. Up-to-date rates for homes in Sacriston are listed at the local authority website.

Q.

Do you have good solicitors that specialise property auction conveyancing in Sacriston?

A.

Our residential property lawyers often handle the legal work for bidders at auction. We invariably encourage purchasers to select a suitable property conveyancing lawyer before the auction to give enough time

for a full investigation. Following the auction, a property conveyancing lawyer must be focused on complete the legal process in less than 28 days after exchange of contracts, a normal requirement of terms of sale.

Q.

Which environmental factors can impact land in Sacriston. Are these checked for thoroughly?

A.

Property in Sacriston would be contaminated by numerous human activities, like proximity to waste sites and other sources of contaminated land. An environmental search can give more clarity.

Q.

Is preparation of statutory declarations paid to the conveyancing solicitor?

A.

Each fee and disbursement ought to be stated on your quote, with any possible extra costs clearly listed. This cost is a fee not a disbursement, and will generally be included in a quote.

Q.

Co-operative Bank is going to be our lender, what will I need to consider?

A.

Recently, a number of lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel', which may result in increased legal costs for home buyers. We can act on behalf of many mortgage lenders.

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.

Do I need to opt for a conveyancing solicitor that generally works with by our estate agent in Fenstanton?

A.

An agent may endorse a conveyancing firm. However, if they are paid a referral fee, some agents choose whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the most appropriate choice.
