When moving house, all you want is for the process to be as simple and stress-free as possible.
One of the key aspects of moving house is the costs involved with such an undeniably huge process.
Of course, with the price of the house, comes a whole load of extra costs which rarely fail to make you feel annoyed, as people don’t always foresee these add-ons.
Extra costs can include building and pest inspections, council rates and one of the top added costs, Stamp Duty.
Legal or conveyancing fees also pose an extra cost for movers, but it certainly is worth getting a professional to see you through your moving process.
Although you can do your own conveyancing (as long as you are not taking out a mortgage), it is very difficult to do and extremely risky. If you get it wrong, it could end up costing you more in the long run, so it’s wise to go along the route of paying a solicitor/conveyancer for their professional service.
Conveyancing quotes come in all shapes and sizes, and some are more complex than others.
Some firms provide their conveyancing quote, and then on the next page is another list of additional charges and unexpected add-ons, including some potential costs which may not even be applicable. This, understandably, is not a welcomed discovery for home-buyers and sellers and simply just causes stress and frustration.
However, what we do is list our fees straight up and there are no extras bolted on. We make it as easy as possible for you and set out our costs clearly and there will be no bad surprises! Questions would be asked at the outset and a true figure would be given rather than a list of maybes.
Claire Chapman, Conveyancing Legal Assistant, said: “Here at Wosskow Brown, we do our best to offer a clear and concise quote at the outset, so there are no nasty surprises at completion.”
We are more than happy to help you through your moving process and take care of your conveyancing for you- just give us a call!
