Conveyancing In Swadlincote Q & A's
I've had a quote from you. May there be any extra costs?
Our solicitors do not hide any additional fees whatsoever. Some firms only provide estimates disguised as quotes, meaning that your final bill could be much higher.
How much will the conveyancing searches cost?
Searches range in cost, subject to the searches your lender requires. Searches are charged 'at cost'.
I’ve lost my gas/electrical certificates; will that stop me moving?
There is no legal imperative for you to provide either the gas or electrical safety certificates as the seller; you are required to provide a gas safety certificate on an annual basis, however, if you are planning on letting the property out. The Institution of Electrical Engineers recommends that an electrical certificate be updated at least every ten years or when the property is transferred to a new owner (every 5 years if you are letting the property out).
However, this usually means that this is the responsibility of the buyer with the onus on organising an inspection for a new certificate falling on them.

What are the benefits of an online solicitor against a high street firm?
Many commentators and bloggers have suggested that you get so much more from online conveyancers because they have access to state-of-the-art applications to manage their cases and use the latest communication technology.
However, there is nothing stopping high street conveyancing firms from adopting such technology. And they will have a wealth of experience and knowledge of the local area that they can bring to bear on your transaction.
It all comes down to what they offer and how they go about their business. You should get a selection of quotes and read through the terms and conditions in detail to understand the comparisons between what they offer and how much they are going to charge you for the service.
