Q.

How do we get the cheapest Woolton conveyancing quote?

A.

Lack of clarity over this point catches out many buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many solicitors purport to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes. Often extra charges may be added into the solicitor's terms. Any charges needs to be reasonable and clear. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

We need to complete this purchase as soon as possible, how do we get a fast completion?

A.

It is a truism that instructing a proactive solicitor is crucial to fast conveyancing. That said, there are a number of tasks you as the buyer could do. These include:

  • asking for property searches to be ordered immediately
  • answering any queries raised by your solicitor as soon as possible
  • getting your mortgage offer in place

Q.

Q.

My mortgage lender is Virgin Money - what do I need to be aware of?

A.

Buyers in Woolton should be aware that a small number of lenders are now limiting the firms who can act for them, resulting in increased conveyancing costs for purchasers if the lender insists upon their own lawyer . We will act for all large lenders, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

Conveyancing solicitors in Woolton order a number of property if instructed by a home purchase client - what specific searches?

A.

If purchasing and taking out a mortgage, your lender expects particular searches, including the following for Woolton: Local Authority Search, Drainage Search and Environmental, and, depending on certain criteria, less common searches for example HS2 report.

Q.

Is it necessary that we get a chancel search? We are purchasing a Woolton apartment near church grounds.

A.

There are 15000 Church of England and Church of Wales parishes throughout the UK. Owners of property within some of these may be required to contribute towards the cost of the repair of a local church. A chancel search will confirm whether liability for Woolton properties is likely to exist. A solicitor will be able to advise further.

Q.

When in the conveyancing process is it appropriate to speak to a conveyancer?

A.

The straightforward answer is, instructing as soon as possible is wise, as conveyancing involves a number of tasks which may be performed immediately. Early instruction of a solicitor could mitigate the chance of the sale or purchase aborting.
