Q.

How do we find affordable conveyancing?

A.

Numerous solicitors purport to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. However extra charges may increase the solicitor's invoice. Fees listed in terms of engagement ought to be fair and reasonable and only apply to matters if the lawyer must perform additional tasks in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Any disbursements must also be stated on a quote. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.

Part of conveyancing includes the making of enquiries of the local authority to verify conservation area status and the requisite consent for any changes. .

Q.

Please advise how to avoid paying stamp duty in South Kensington?

A.

We do not recommend any stamp duty mitigation scheme. Such schemes are highly expensive and can be very unlikely to succeed.

Q.

Why does purchase conveyancing work be so delayed?

A.

The conveyancing process can potentially be delayed even in ideal circumstances. Some reasons are out of the conveyancing solicitor's control. We see how frustrating such delays may be and work hard to reduce the consequences of these delays by, for example, ordering searches as early as possible. Delays may include difficulties with mortgage finance.

Q.

I have got a quote from you. Will there be any supplementary hidden costs?

A.

Our solicitors never hide any additional costs under any circumstances. Your quote is an honest and accurate price the legal expenses for your move.

Q.

Do I need to get a house survey for this home purchase?

A.

We advise that all purchasers order a property survey. There can be a wide range of concerns which can negatively affect a property. These can include unsafe chimney circulation and poor ventilation.

Q.

My estate agent has named a conveyancing solicitor whom they usually use. Should I instruct this solicitor?

A.

It is common practice for agents to suggest one or more conveyancing firms, however, such referrals must be carefully considered, as an agent may select the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.
