Q.

We are looking for the cheapest conveyancing quote. What should be watch out for?

A.

Many conveyancers offer supposedly cheap conveyancing, however extra costs will be included in the solicitor's terms of engagement. This small print is often not read by buyers in a hurry. Any fees listed in terms of engagement should be fair. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Are searches fees or disbursements?

A.

Some conveyancers attempt to pass off fees which should be included as disbursements. It may not be clear whether a cost is a disbursement or not, and whether it should be included. These costs are disbursements not fees, and is passed on at cost.

A.

Residential property in Swinton could be contaminated by numerous environmental concerns, like masts or pylons or infilled land. An environmental search should offer more information. Contamination can be caused by local landfill sites, including Lumns Lane, Clifton, M27 8LN.

Q.

Our mortgage lender will be Intelligent Finance, what do we need to be aware of?

A.

When buying with a mortgage, your lender will require legal work to be carried out on their behalf. Buyers should consider that some lenders are now limiting the firms who can act for them, resulting in higher conveyancing costs for buyers if their property lawyer cannot act for the lender. We, though, are able to act for most lenders, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

How early do you need to arrange a solicitor in Swinton?

A.

Whether buying or selling, instructing as early as possible is better, as there are a number of tasks which may be performed straight away. Instructing a firm to handle your Swinton conveyancing early can reduce the likelihood of your sale or purchase aborting.

Q.
