Bypass the agents and go straight to the owners and make the point that (a)you are genuine buyers (b)you are ready to progress, with mortgage lined up © you have nothing to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you are going to appoint your preferred West Barnes conveyancing solicitors - rather thanthose that will provide the estate agent a referral fee or meet his conveyancing figures demanded by head office.
What is the difference between surveying and conveyancing in West Barnes?
Conveyancing - in West Barnes or elsewhere - is the process of legally transferring legal title of property from one person to another. It involves the checking of the title. Whether buying or selling, you should be aware of anything affecting the property such as proposals by government departments, illegal buildings, or outstanding rates. The conveyancer should conduct the appropriate searches and inquiries on the property. Surveying relates to the structure of a property itself. A surveyor will look at a house, flat and any outbuildings you’re buying and will help you find out about the condition of the building and, if there are problems, give you leverage for reducing the price down or asking the vendor to remedy the problems prior to you move in.
