It may have been a long time coming a mortgage offer from HSBC for the remortgage of my 2 bedroom flat is due imminently. Are you able to put forward a cheap conveyancing solicitor in Newark?
You are on the wrong site if you are seeking cut-price fees for conveyancing solicitors in Newark. Our goal is to offer value for money conveyancing but we do not work with the cheapest lawyers. Resist the temptation to appoint companies offering the bait of £100 conveyancing in Newark. The optimum outcome, in choosing a lawyer for low cost conveyancing, you will get your money’s worth and at worst you will end up invoiced for extras and still not receive the service you were hoping for.
The owners of the house we are hoping to buy have appointed a conveyancing solicitor in Newark who has recommended a lock out contract with a deposit 10k. Are such agreements sensible?
There are two main concerns with signing a lock out agreement (occasionally known as a shut-out contract) is that it diverts attention away from moving forward with the conveyancing process, so in the absence of it needing little or no negotiation then it may turn out to be a cause of frustration and delay. It is not strongly advocated amongst Newark conveyancing solicitors as a result. A further issue is the extent of the remedies available - a jilted buyer is very unlikely to be issued with an injunctive ruling by a court to stop the owner disposing of the property to an alternative purchaser, so the only remedy open via the agreement will be the recovery of wasted costs and, in restricted circumstances, the additional payment of penalties.

I have been pointed in your direction by a number of estate agents in Newark to select a conveyancer using your seach tool. Is there a financial incentive for Estate Agents to recommend your lawyers over a competitor’s?
We refuse to make any commission for pointing buyers and sellers in our direction. We found it would be just too difficult a fee because home movers will think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not receiving any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.
