Main reasons to use our service to help you choose a local conveyancing solicitor in Goddington

  • 1 The mark of a good conveyancing solicitor in Goddington is quality not quantity. The level of service offered by conveyancing "factories" (sometimes 'recommended' by large estate agency chains) often falls short of the level of professionalism you would hope for.
  • 2 Retaining the services of a local Solicitor in the main results in a more bespoke service. Online forums bear testimony to the idea that in selecting a large conveyancing firm, your conveyancing is handled by a team of people who check what is happening on the file by determining whether the ‘computers says no’.
  • 3 Goddington conveyancers are likely to have connections at the local Land Registry Office, Local Authority and selling agents
  • 4 Solicitor conveyancing lawyers have extremely good personal connections with Goddington estate agents and work very closely with them and local surveyors so as to ensure transactions proceed expeditiously.
  • 5 Excellent communication together with a wealth of local knowledge are key benefits that you should value when choosing conveyancing solicitors. Goddington home moves can become a lot more stressful due to poor communication between all the parties. The lawyers listed ensure that communication channels are open and act on arising issues and developments expeditiously.

Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Goddington

Our nephew is about to exchange on a house that has just been built in Goddington with a mortgage from Lloyds. His conveyancer has advised him of a delay in receiving the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. This document is news to me - what is it and who needs sight of it?

The document is intended to provide information to the main parties engaged in the purchase. Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the Lloyds conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the valuer when requested. The developer will be required to start the process by downloading the form and completing it. The form will therefore need to be available for the valuer at the time of his or her site visit. The form should be sent to the Lloyds conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.

We would encourage you not to base your choice on the cheapest Goddington conveyancing costs illustration. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you know exactly what you’ll have to pay in ahead of time.

This question may be naive but I am wet behind the ears as a first time purchaser of a two bedroom flat in Goddington. Do I collect the keys to the premises on completion from my conveyancer? If so, I will find a local conveyancing solicitor in Goddington?

Your solicitors will transfer the completion advance to the vendor’s lawyers, and once they have received this, you should be invited to receive the keys from the Estate Agents and move into your new home. Usually this happens early afternoon.

As solicitors, in order to be on the HSBC approved list of solicitors they would need to be overseen by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. Some lenders do allow licenced conveyancers on their panel in which case such firms would be governed by the CLC.
