Q.

How do I find affordable conveyancing in Wickford?

A.

Lack of clarity over this point catches out many sellers and buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many property lawyers promote supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however extra fees can inflate your final invoice. Extra costs needs to be fair.

Q.

When do we need to speak to a solicitor?

A.

The short answer is, the earlier in the process you can instruct a conveyancing firm, the better. The legal work can then begin very early in the process. Instructing a solicitor early for a purchase may mean that your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed, or, if you are selling a property, prior to marketing the property, documents can be prepared to make it potentially more attractive to motivated buyers.

Q.

Will your Wickford property solicitor do any property conveyancing searches on the Essex Victorian terraced home I want to buy?

A.

The conventional legal procedure will be to obtain Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW) and Environment Search and, depending on certain criteria, less common searches, which might include Limestone Search.

Q.

In about five weeks we are preparing to move from our period residence in Wickford into our new dwelling in Westcliff On Sea , what is the optimum stage to choose a home removal firm?

A.

Most property lawyers will advise that sellers put off until after formal exchange of contracts has occurred as typically an agreed moving date wont have been confirmed. For more information try Billericay Removals, Colina House/1 Clovelly Gardens, Wickford, SS11 7BT Telephone: 01268 768246 or Pheby's Removals, Hilltop/Meadow La, Runwell, Wickford, SS11 7DY on 01268 766164.

Q.

How much can the conveyancing searches usually cost?

A.

With a Homeward Legal solicitor, clients are charged at most £249 for conveyancing searches in Wickford. Searches are paid to a third party.

Q.

In what ways can my Wickford property lawyer investigate the potential risk of a flood around Wickford for an investment property we are going to buy?

A.

An experienced lawyer makes an application for conveyancing and environmental searches, which include Wickford flood risk information.

Q.

How do I circumvent paying SDLT?

A.

Q.
