Q.

How do we find the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Seaham?

A.

This issue catches out many buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many solicitors promote theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately additional costs are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms, left unregarded by busy buyers and sellers Any additional fees included in terms of engagement needs to be fair. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the solicitors' fees, based on the property you are buying.

Q.

Is a home buyers survey necessary when we are purchasing property?

A.

Homeward Legal strongly recommend that all buyers in Seaham book a RICS survey. There can be many defects that have a negative impact on a property. These can include wet rot, and these will not be addressed by your conveyancing solicitor.

Moreover lawyers must get suitable insurance cover that ultimately protects you in the event of carelessness.
