Q.

What will the overall charge be on the sale of a £109,000 house? We are trying to find a discount conveyancing estimate.

A.

Numerous solicitors claim to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra costs will be included in small print which property buyers and sellers may have not read carefully Any additional costs found in terms of engagement needs to be reasonable and clear. Third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid should also be clearly stated on the quote

Q.

I am buying soon and have a quote from you. Could there be any additional fees?

A.

No. Our solicitors never charge any additional costs for conveyancing in Saxmundham. Some firms only provide estimates disguised as quotes, which they will not be bound to.

Q.

What will my conveyancing searches cost?

A.

The cost of searches will vary, depending on the searches chosen.

Q.

Is a survey sensible when we are purchasing property in Saxmundham?

A.

It is suggested that purchasers in Saxmundham arrange a RICS surveyor. A wide range of defects can negatively affect a property, for example poor ventilation or wet rot. Such issues will not be considered during the conveyancing work itself.

Q.

How do I protect my offer from gazumping?

A.

This is common both in Saxmundham, and across Suffolk and describes circumstances where a seller accepts an offer and then rejects it, opting for a second buyer's offer. Although gazumping is less common in a declining market, there will always be a chance. The first step in reducing the chance that gazumping will effect you is to instruct an efficient solicitor as soon as you can.

What will the council tax cost me on a Fifties Band A flat in Saxmundham?

My flatmate and I must achieve a fast sale, does Homeward Legal any particularly fast Saxmundham conveyancing solicitors ?

A.

Often law firms are slow which brings a lot of stress to the property legal process. With us, conveyancers will communicate through all parts of the buyer and seller property chain and employ new automated practice management and technology systems to finish your house move fast.

Q.

In respect of the fact that an estimated 2 8m people are at risk from surface flooding, we are wondering whether flood searches may not be exacting enough?

A.

A good conveyancing solicitor in Saxmundham should always get additional flood searches if the environmental searches flag up any kind of Saxmundham flood risk.

Property purchasers sometimes also speak to a neighbour for additional extra confidence.
