Q.

At what point should we instruct a conveyancer?

If you choose a firm with 'no move, no fee' protection, instructing as soon as possible is wise, as the legal work can commence immediately. Instructing your solicitor earlier can limit the risk of the purchase or sale stalling.

Q.

We have a property to purchase. How do we arrange a fast conveyancing transaction?

A.

Contacting a proactive, diligent lawyer is the key to buying faster. There are, however, a range of things you as the purchaser can also do, including, contacting your lawyer regularly, completing all forms as soon as possible and confirming your mortgage offer.

Q.

Do I need to choose the property solicitor who frequently works with by my estate agent?

A.

Many agents in Eaglescliffe have referral deals with solicitors whereby they refer work. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, there is a risk that the agent may suggest the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

How can I protect against getting gazumped?

A.

Gazumping arises when a owner acknowledges an offer and then dismisses it, opting for another buyer's offer. Because acceptance of an offer is not binding on the seller until exchange of contracts, there is a danger of being gazumped. The first step in reducing the chance that gazumping will effect you is to instruct a law firm early.

Q.

How many weeks can the conveyancing process need?

A.

In general, the amount of time taken to buy or sell a residence varies, influenced by several aspects. Our conveyancers ensure your move is handled quickly, and to the highest standard of service.

Q.

We are buying with Northern Rock, is there anything we need to be aware of?

A.

Buyers in Shenfield should consider that some lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel', which may result in higher legal costs for buyers. We will act on behalf of all large lenders, ensuring that an additional solicitor will not be required to act for your lender.
