Solicitor conveyancing quotes are just one of the fees that you need to take into account when you are planning to move house. Moving home is not a cheap thing to do and you will need to ensure that your budget can stretch to cover everything before you start the process.
The first thing that often needs to be paid for – unless it all becomes part of the final cost and is taken out of the equity of the property – is the valuation fee.
Without a valuation of the property, the mortgage lender will not release any funds. They need to be satisfied that the property value is correct before they lend you the money for the purchase. There is no set fee for this valuation service and it can range anywhere from the low hundreds to the mid thousands, however, it is unlikely that a lender will let you have the property without it.
In a similar vein to the valuation, you will also need to have a survey done on the property. This is an additional service and depending on how detailed you need the survey to be, it can cost thousands. You can use an independent surveyor, so you can compare costs just like with conveyancing solicitors.
Conveyancing quotes and surveyors’ quotes can be looked at and checked through carefully – and so they should. It is essential that you are sure of what you are paying for; if anything is missed out and this causes a delay further down the line in the process you could be liable for additional costs.
Solicitor conveyancing quotes can vary vastly in price and can be extremely confusing, using Conveyancing Index to compare these quotes is a great way to ensure that you are getting the very best value for money.
