Q.

How do we find the cheapest Wantage conveyancing quote?

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many sellers and buyers paying out more than they anticipated in the end, and many law firms promote supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes. However additional costs may inflate the final invoice. Any additional costs should be fair. They be applicable solely where the solicitor must complete additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

Q.

Q.

Does 'fixtures and fittings' include things like lamps or lightshades?

A.

There is not a absolute definition of fixtures and fittings, potentially leading to anger after a sale completes and the previous owner has taken certain items or fixtures with them. The need to clarify this is often not considered, hence the importance of a complete fixtures and fittings form, agreed by both parties.

Q.

When in the process is it appropriate to speak to a conveyancing solicitor to handle our transaction?

A.

Whether buying or selling, the faster you instruct the better, as conveyancing involves several tasks that can be carried out very early in the process. A number of sources suggest holding off instruction until an offer is accepted, but opting to delay can jeopardise your sale or purchase.
