Q.

Do all cheap conveyancing quotes have extra fees? I need fixed rate Waddon conveyancing.

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this point catches out many home owners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many law firms advertise 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra costs will be included in the terms and conditions. Extra fees which are listed in the solicitor's terms should be clearly defined and only be applied if your conveyancer must complete work beyond standard conveyancing , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

Does your firm look after the conveyancing of auction properties in Waddon?

A.

Homeward Legal is highly experienced with auction buyers and sellers. It is not unusual for specialist buildings like landlocked houses are included at property auctions which tend to necessitate added review. Homeward Legal therefore recommend that auction buyers formally instruct their property conveyancing lawyer prior to the property auction to allow sufficient time for a review of the legal papers for the lot.

Post day of the auction a prepared lawyer will need to be geared up to finish the legal work in under 28 days, a requirement of terms of sale.
