Q.

How do I find a discount conveyancing estimate?

A.

Both high-street and online solicitors claim to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes. However additional charges are often hiding in the terms of engagement, left unregarded by busy buyers Any charges listed in your solicitor's terms should be fair and reasonable. They be applicable if the lawyer is required to complete extra work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The quote should also clearly state costs to be paid to third parties, e.g. the Land Registry, (disbursments).We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

I am buying in Wythall, and have had a conveyancing quote from you. Could we be invoiced any additional fees when the purchase completed?

A.

No. We do not hide any hidden extra costs. While comparing quotes, be aware that some solicitors only estimate conveyancing costs, which could be totally different to your final invoice.

Q.

I have read about the widespread flooding last year in the Midlands, I am thinking that environmental searches aren't thorough enough?

A.

An experienced Wythall conveyancing solicitor will suggest that you apply for food risk searches if the first conveyancing searches determine a any kind of Wythall flood risk.

It could be worth trying to speak to a neighbour for some more comfort.

Q.

Do your property lawyers get involved in residential property auction conveyancing in Wythall?

A.

Yes - Our company is able to work with buyers and sellers at auction. Very often difficult to value properties are sold at auction and these necessitate extra due diligence by the conveyancer We therefore strongly advocate purchasers to choose a local lawyer before the auction to give enough time for an investigation. Q.

If I plan to buy near Wythall, in the parish of , do we need a chancel search?

A.

Whichever Wythall parish you are purchasing in, a solicitor could recommend a chancel search. Through some parish councils have determined to exact chancel repairs on owners, there is no guarantee that a parish where chancel repair fees have not been paid previously will not continue to be so, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.
