Purchasing a new house can be exciting, especially if it is your first time. However, whether it’s your first purchase or just an additional property, you need a conveyancing lawyer to help you with the legal process and ensure that you will get the title and the accurate solicitor quotes. But what are the things that you need to remember when getting a conveyancing quote?
Type of conveying service you are purchasing
Online and calling hotlines are just some of the ways to purchase conveyancing services. Choose the right one that has a good reputation and can give accurate estimates coming from a regulated SRA property solicitor.
Know all costs associated with the purchase
Make sure that you know all the disbursements, hidden costs, and even VAT charges that you may get charged with. Legal fees may look more affordable when you read it in the papers, but the hidden costs associated with buying the house may cost you even more.
You need to make sure that the conveyancer constantly keeps you in the loop during the whole process. Keep in mind that your solicitor might not have viewed the property yet, so it is always best to clear up any questions you have about it.
Do your own searches
You may also want to ask your lawyer about the types of searches that they would recommend about the property. You may start with local knowledge, as your solicitor will have an idea on which searches are appropriate for the area.
You may also ask any of your friends or family if they know a good solicitor that they can recommend. Not only will it save you a lot of time, but it will also save you from the stress of going through several solicitors before finding the right one.
