What are the best rates for conveyancing for a 159,000 residence?

Q.

We have a found a freehold residence to buy. How do we aim for fast legal work?

A.

It is a truism that a faster move is essential to is to use a proactive conveyancing solicitor. You should consider:

  • Was there a delay delivering a quote?
  • What methods of communication do they use? Posting documents can adds days of waiting to a purchase.
  • Do they order searches immediately?

Q.

How do I protect against gazumping?

A.

This occurs when a property seller agrees to a buyer's offer, only to later refuse it in favour of a second buyer's offer. It could occur weeks into a purchase. The danger of getting gazumped is present in any transaction. Instructing your conveyancing solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer should help to mitigate this risk.

A.

The conventional legal protocol will be to obtain Local Authority, Drainage Search (Con29DW), Environment Search and Gypsum Mining Search, and possibly unique particular such as Bankruptcy Search (K16).

Q.

Will my conveyancing cover any hidden charges?

A.

It is unfortunate that the practice of hiding extra costs in the 'small print' is quite common. We will not charge any extra, hidden fees. Some solicitors only estimate conveyancing costs, meaning that you could pay much more when you complete.
