Q.

How can we ensure our cheap quote is fixed? I am trying to find a low cost conveyancing quote.

A.

Many online and high street solicitors claim to offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often extra costs can inflate your final invoice. Fees included in the solicitor's terms needs to be reasonable. A quote for conveyancing in West Yorkshire should also clearly state costs to be paid to third parties, including search providers, (disbursements).

Q.

Are many purchasers in West Yorkshire gazumped?

A.

Gazumping happens when a buyer's offer is, following agreement, later rejected by the seller, in favour of a second purchaser's offer. The will be a chance of getting gazumped in any transaction, because offers are not binding until exchange of contracts. You should instruct your solicitor as early as possible to reduce the chance of your transaction being gazumped.

Q.

Do we need to employ the conveyancing referred by our local agent?

A.

Many agents have arrangements with solicitors where they refer conveyancing clients to them. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, an agent may decide to recommend the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.

Q.

Which property conveyancing searches should the conveyancing solicitor in West Yorkshire apply for on a West Yorkshire home?

A.

The standard procedure will be to obtain these searches - Local Authority, Drainage Search (Con29DW), Environmental, Tin Search and Clay Search as well as any specific local West Yorkshire searches for instance Land charge Searches.

Q.

Do 'conveyancing searches' affect a decision to buy?

A.

Conveyancing searches are a standardised collection of queries raised by the solicitor with several agencies, including a search of the Index Map. Whether buying in West Yorkshire or elsewhere, you should be aware that, searches cover solely legal considerations.

Q.

What amount of time can be budgeted for the conveyancing process require, on average?

A.

The time taken to transfer a property can vary, according to a number of issues. Our lawyers strive to ensure your transaction is undertaken as quickly as possible.

Q.

As a result of the worrying amount of flooding in the UK in April 2012 I am wondering whether environmental searches may not be sufficient?

A.

Environmental searches handled by the solicitor in West Yorkshire should also include the more rigorous search (Landmark) if required.

If you are worried why not try to speak to a future neighbour.

Q.

The vendor has unfortunately fitted out of place artificial stone cladding on the building which I think might possibly violate the Canning Street conservation area rules.

A.

Your solicitor is required to see whether your proposed purchase is inside a designated conservation area and whether any modifications have the necessary consents.
