Solicitor Recommendations?

Hi all,

Looking to purchase an apartment and am wondering if anyone could recommend a fairly priced/decent solicitor in the North Dublin Area? Also any recommendations on a surveyor would also be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

Rather than start a new thread, also looking for one. We are North Dublin too. Specifically, D15-Santry (we've cast a wide net), but work in City Centre so can probably make time to visit some there.

Any recommendations via PM are appreciated.

We have our deposit, stamp duty fees in order and have enough to cover solicitors, but don't want a nasty surprise and end up having to take from some of our deposit.

You won't have to typically, as long as you've been reasonable to budget enough. Say 3.5k plus a bit of a contingency. That will either cover it or take the sting out of it and you'll always land in the ballpark there.

Be aware that there have been changes in how a property is conveyed since Jan 2019, so while costs won't necessarily go up, punters will be finding themselves footing more legal cost when sales fall through and they have to move on to another property. It's even more important you do your due diligence prior to going sale agreed now and giving a booking deposit to avoid this extra legal cost.

Hopefully sellers will be the ones who get the structural surveys done for example and give a copy to prospective buyers, no matter how much their solicitor and surveyor doesn't like it.

Why do you think that sellers will be providing structural surveys to buyers? It'd be welcome if they did, although it would probably be contentious.
I don't know much about these changes, but they appear to be solely around title investigations?
