Q.

How do I find a discount conveyancing quote?

A.

Both high-street and online property lawyers offer cheap conveyancing, however extra costs are often hiding in the terms which unwary homeowners fail to check. Any disbursements to be paid should be included on your quote. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.

Do your panel of solicitors a lot of experience at the legal conveyancing of property auction properties in Shaftesbury?

Adept purchasers will formally instruct a good lawyer as fast as they can to allow for a title report of the legal pack well in advance of the day of the auction.

After the actual auction, your property lawyer has to be focused on finish the conveyancing inside the usual 28 days as usually required by the terms and conditions of sale.

When in the process should we instruct a conveyancer in Shaftesbury?

A.

If you use a solicitor offering a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, the earlier in the process you can instruct a solicitor, the better, as there are a number of tasks that can be carried out immediately. Some groups suggest waiting before instruction until the offer is accepted, but delays can risk the other side pulling out, particularly in uncertain market conditions.

Importantly , we look after you with a carefully selected solicitor trained to communicate by phone and email with agents, landlords, councils and all parties in the buyer and seller chain .
