Q.

We are looking for the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Westcliff On Sea. How do I get a quote?

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this topic catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many firms claim to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing. However extra fees can inflate your solicitor's invoice. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Is there a danger that we will be gazumped?

A.

Gazumping happens when a owner accepts an offer, only to later refuse it in favour of a better offer. This could occur weeks into a sale. Although gazumping is less common in a declining market, there will always be a risk. Instructing your solicitor as soon as you can should help to mitigate this risk.

My husband and I are purchasing a house in Westcliff On Sea. Are there many conservation areas?

Q.

We are intending to buy a sixties flat in a designated Westcliff On Sea conservation area. How does one find data in regards to the standard of upkeep of the conservation area?

English Heritage, a government body, now maintain information about the state of conservation areas along with the exposure to a decline in standards.
