Moving house solicitors fees can take people by surprise, as it can be the thing that is most often forgotten when budgeting for a move. This can then become a major problem since the cost can be high. It is important to do your research before committing to a move.
Something else apart from solicitors fees for buying a house that you should research thoroughly is the property itself. It may sound like a strange thing to mention, but it can happen that not enough background information is done and problems can occur. Conveyancing solicitors will have access to the title plan of the property you intend to buy. This is the plan that shows the entire outline of the property with the boundary line usually marked in red. If this information is not volunteered, then you should ask to see it.
Once you have seen the plan, then it is a good idea to go back to the property and double check that the plans match with what you think should be included in the sale. Ask your conveyancer to check your understanding of the boundaries of the property you are purchasing. It could be that the piece of land to the side of the new house, the one that you thought you would be able to use in some way, does not actually belong to the property at all. Or it could be that there is more to the property than you realised, which means you will need to maintain it. As long as the property you are planning to buy matches the plans completely, then there will be no problems.
