Q.

There are a growing number useful publications giving details on how to do DIY conveyancing. Do I need to instruct a property lawyer in Shortlands for my home move?

A.

It is possible to do the legal work unaided. The truth is however that a conveyancing solicitor takes care of a significant number of activities ranging from liaising with the insolvency office for k15 entries or checking for any restrictive covenants most of which need a qualified solicitor. Despite that solicitors practices are under a duty to carry insurance to insulate you from any failures on the part of the solicitor.

Furthermore, there are various jobs you, as the purchaser, could do, including, organising your finances, completing all forms as soon as possible and keeping in regular contact with your conveyancing solicitor.

What sort of additional enquiries in relation to the potential risk of local flooding in the Kent region will the Shortlands conveyancing solicitor advise us on for an investment home I am wanting to purchase?

The conveyancing lawyer applies for formal environmental searches that will include Shortlands flood risk data. An inexpensive (around twenty pounds) and more specialist flood search, such as the Homecheck search, may be advised by your Shortlands solicitor, if in the event that the initial conveyancing searches suggest flood risk to the property.

Q.

A.

The legal work needed to sell or purchase a property can be delayed even in the best of circumstances. The reasons are beyond a lawyer's power. We strive to reduce their cost wherever it is feasible by driving the transaction forward. Common delays include issues elsewhere in a chain.

Q.

Should we opt for a conveyancing referred by our estate agent in Bredbury?

A.

Agent recommendations are a common path whereby buyers get a solicitor. However, if they are paid a referral fee, the agent may prefer to suggest whichever firm pays the most per referral, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.
