It’s important to ask potential conveyancing solicitors the right questions, to ensure your purchase goes as smoothly and quickly as possible
Conveyancers are an important part of the homebuying process. A good conveyancing solicitor can help things run smoothly, but this largely depends on who you choose to work with and what service you get from them. And the only way to find that out is by asking the right questions before you instruct them.
1. How much will you charge?
Yes it’s a pretty obvious one but you’d be surprised how many people fail to ask this at the start of the conveyancing process. It’s important to get quotes from a few different conveyancers to ensure you’re getting a good deal.
Most conveyancing quotes will include third party costs (or disbursements) such as the cost of local authority searches and Stamp Duty. If a quote seems surprisingly low, it could be that third party costs aren’t included in the conveyancing fees. Ask for an itemised quote so you can see what the conveyancer’s time actually costs.
