Q.

How do we find the best conveyancing rates in South Brent for a £417k residence?

A.

Numerous solicitors promote 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional costs will be included in the terms and conditions. These terms are often ignored by excited buyers and sellers, eager to get underway. Extra costs needs to be reasonable. They be applicable solely where the lawyer is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

A.

Our recommended conveyancing solicitors frequently act for buyers at auction. We always recommend bidders to formally instruct the solicitor well before the date of the auction to allow adequate time for a review of the legal papers.

Post auction, your lawyer has to be geared up to rapidly get through the auction conveyancing process in the 4 week time frame as usually required by the terms and conditions of sale.

As a consequence of the major flooding in Sept 2012 in South West England we are asking if property environmental searches may not be detailed enough?
