Q.

How do we identify a genuinely cheap fee? I am trying to find a fixed rate conveyancing quote in Upper Tooting.

I am on a tight deadline, and would like ensure a fast conveyancing transaction, what should we do?

A.

The key to a fast transaction is to use a proactive solicitor. Furthermore, there are several things you as the buyer could do. These include:

Immediately following the auction day a prepared lawyer will need to be ready for get through the transaction in less than the 4 week time frame as usually required by the conditions of sale.
