The confusion over this topic catches out many property buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted.

For the majority of home movers, the number of weeks taken to transfer a house varies, affected by a number of considerations such as if the property being bought or sold is leasehold. Our solicitors work hard to ensure every sale is handled quickly, and to the highest standard of service.

Q.

Does your solicitors firm manage the conveyancing for auction properties in Wem?

A.

Our company is familiar with bidders at auction. Regularly unusually constructed buildings e. g. uninsurable property are purchased at auction and these will want more due diligence. Solicitors therefore recommend that buyers at auction select a lawyer before the auction to allow enough time for a title report of the property's legal title.

Subsequently, immediately after the date of the auction a solicitor has to be prepared for get through the auction conveyancing process within 28 days as required by the terms of sale.

Hypothetically there is absolutely no argument why a home mover should not do the bulk of the your own conveyancing yourself.

In reality however, a conveyancing solicitor typically handles a long list of jobs e.g. chasing replies to requisitions or dealing with requisition on os1 which need the relevant training.

Q.

Is a deed of postponement passed on at cost?

It may not be clear whether a charge is a fee or a disbursement. This charge is a fee not a disbursement, and should be included in a quote for your conveyancing.
