Q: Why SavvyLaw Conveyancing?
Q: Can things go wrong with a conveyance?
The transfer of property is not an easy process. Multiple parties are involved (between 6 and 8) and all have to agree on the price and any adjustments, and the timing of the settlement whilst adhering to the legalities of the contract.
Q: I’ve already signed a contract – is it too late for legal advice?
Q: I have had a signed contract for a week but haven’t put a conveyancing firm’s name on it yet. Is it too late to do so now?
Q: Are there any ‘hidden costs’ in the conveyancing process? Will I get a ‘shock’ bill after the settlement?
