Conveyancing Quotation - Questions to ask your Property solicitor

Purchasers are understandably price conscious and so often shop around for quotations when buying a home.

A vital piece of advice is that you should not determine what solicitor to use for your property purchase solely based on price. There are a lot of other factors that should be included when deciding what solicitor to use for your conveyance for instance their actual experience in property law, reputation and availability.

We have put together the below queries which may assist you when looking for a conveyancing quotation from a solicitor for your property purchase:

 

·  How much do you charge for conveyancing? 

·  What does the fee include and not include?

·  Will there be any extra fees for administration costs, such as postage? 

·  Could the fee change and if so, why? 

·  Will you let me know in advance if something will cost extra? 

·  Will a solicitor always be in charge of my file i.e. no delegation to a non qualified solicitor?

·  What is your availability to act in a new matter?

·  How long should the conveyancing process take? 

·  How will you update me and how often? 

·  How many conveyancing cases have you handled? 

·  Do you have references I can contact? 

·  Are you a member of the Incorporated Law Society of Ireland?

Please feel free to contact us for a no obligation quotation if you are buying a property and we will be happy to send you a full breakdown of all costs including all outlay which you incur when buying a property in Ireland.
