We were about to instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Grantham found on your site but stumbled across some other quotes on the internet look less expensive – why is this?
There are many firms of conveyancing organisations advertising pretending to offer cheap conveyancing, unfortunately it’s common in such cases for supplementalcharges result in the closing fee totally different to the one you expected.

I require conveyancing for an apartment in a relatively new development (seven years old) in Grantham. The vast majority the appartments are already disposed of. Do I need carry out the conveyancing searches for my conveyancing in Grantham?
You would be opening yourself up to an unnecessary risk in refusing to carrying out Grantham conveyancing searches. Without searches you have no clarity over flooding, environmental etc which may mean you walk away due to potential problems down the line. If you are buying mortgage free there is no legal requirement to have them, but we would strongly advise in the strongest possible terms that your conveyancer conducts them. If timings and cost are primary concerns you should consider with your solicitor about the options such as contingency insurance available to you
I have been told that property searches are the main cause of stalling in Grantham house deals. Is that correct?
The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) published determinations of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure within the most frequent causes of hindrances during the legal transfer of property. Local searches are not likely to be the root cause of holding up conveyancing in Grantham.
Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to our house are lost. The solicitors who dealt with the conveyancing in Grantham 5 years ago are no longer around. What are my next steps?
In today’s world there are duplicates made of almost everything, and your solicitor should know precisely where to find all the relevant documentation so you can buy or sell your house without any difficulty. If copies are not available, your solicitor can put in place insurance or indemnities protecting you against future claims on the premises.
How does conveyancing in Grantham differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Grantham contact us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is constructed. This is because house builders in Grantham tend to acquire the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Grantham or who has acted in the same development.
