Reigate Solicitors Legal Fees
Many solicitors hide fees for things that are part of a standard conveyancing transaction in their terms of their estimate. Some of these hidden costs are clearly necessary from the commencement.
Check for certain items including fees for acting on a shared ownership matter or for stamp duty land tax form completion. Our approach is to offer a fixed fee legal quote for your Reigate transaction.

The Conveyancing Process
Getting a quote for the conveyancing
Firstly, select a solicitor guided by what factors matter to you. Find fixed-fee quotes with a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, but check terms and conditions for any hidden fees.
Engaging a solicitor
Once you have ascertained which firms conveyancing quote you would like to go with you will need to instruct them. To do this you absolutely must scour the terms for any concealed fees e.g. costs for stamp duty land tax form completion , before approving them.
The draft contract
Pre-contract enquires are carried out, which can include a preliminary investigation of title. In addition the draft contract itself will be prepared. Additional enquires will also be raised of the seller after the purchaser's property lawyer has read through the property information form.
Get the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey
Property buyers are typically recommended to get a RICS HomeBuyer Report of Building Survey as it will establish if there are any possible structural problems e.g. subsidence and sagging. House longhorn beetle is also a possible local problem in Surrey.
Conveyancing searches in Reigate
The typical searches are Environmental, Drainage and Water, Chancel Liability and Local Authority, and these review a range of issues, including changes near the property, such as planning for a supermarket.
Exchange of contracts
Contracts are signed by the seller and buyer and exchanged by their conveyancing solicitor, legally binding them to go through with the transaction.
The purchaser may then pick up the keys to their new home after the seller's solicitor certifies that they have any remaining funds due to be paid.
After Completion Work
When you have taken possession of the property your Reigate conveyancer will still have some admin to complete such as getting the transfer stamped.
The Help to Buy scheme
Close to 20, 000 purchasers acquired a property with the Help to Buy schemes in its first nine months. The Government's Help to Buy scheme enables participating lenders to purchase a guarantee, so they can then offer mortgages of up to 95% loan to value.
Call the Money Advice Service, or your local Help to Buy agent for more detail regarding the scheme.
