Holmes & Hills Solicitors provide conveyancing services with the protection of our No Sale, No Fee Promise* included as standard. This means, should your conveyancing transaction fall-through (go abortive) you will not have to pay any of the legal fee we quoted.
Property market commentators such as Rightmove** state that approximately 30% of property transactions fall-through in normal times. This is a much higher percentage than many anticipate. It is not clear what impact the Coronavirus pandemic has had on this percentage at the current time.
If you are not protected by a No Sale, No Fee Promise such as that included as standard by Holmes & Hills, you can find yourself paying your conveyancing lawyer up to 75% or more of the legal fee you are originally quoted in the event your transaction/s fall-through. You will then have to pay your conveyancing lawyer again when you find a new property to buy, or a new buyer for your property. You are essentially paying twice for your conveyancing in this situation.
At Holmes & Hills Solicitors we do all we can to ensure your property transaction progresses as quickly and as smoothly as possible for you, giving you expert legal advice and keeping you up to date throughout. Our team of fourteen conveyancing lawyers and their supporting secretaries help thousands of people in Essex and Suffolk buy and sell property every year.
Not only does Holmes & Hills Solicitors protect you from paying legal fees in the event your conveyancing transaction falls-through, you will also benefit from the fact that transactions which Holmes & Hills is involved with are more likely to reach the point of successfully completing compared with the national average. With Holmes & Hills, your transaction is less likely to fall-through.
We will give you a fixed-fee conveyancing quote that has absolutely no hidden charges. When you obtain conveyancing quotations form other law firms you will find charges for completion SDLT forms, dealing with lenders and leasehold fees. With Holmes & Hills, these items are included within our legal fee as we do not believe in disguising these as disbursements.
Holmes & Hills undertakes electronic identification searches which means we do not need to see you in person. In the unlikely event that our search on you fails, we may ask for additional proof of identification to be sent to us electronically.
When you get a quote from Holmes & Hills you will be told who your conveyancing lawyer would be should you choose to instruct us. You will deal with a single property lawyer who will have sole responsibility for dealing with you and your property transaction. They will be supported by their team who might assist at various stages in order to proactively progress your transaction, but your property lawyer will have sole responsibility for your transaction/s.
Whether you are a first-time buyer or a seasoned property investor, you’ll get expert advice at each and every stage of the process, ensuring your interests as purchaser or vendor are fully protected. All of your questions, whether relation to search results, title deeds, restrictive covenants, leases, rights of way or boundaries, will all be answered by your specialist property lawyer.
