I need to find a company that offers cheap conveyancing. and what is included?


Both high-street and online property lawyers claim to offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes. However additional fees may be added into the small print. Excited homeowners, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Extra costs should be fair and reasonable and come into force only if your lawyer must complete unanticipated additional work for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.


With a property ready to buy , how do we organise fast conveyancing in Ashton?


It is a truism that contacting a proactive and experienced conveyancing solicitor is the key to fast conveyancing. That said, there are a number of things you can also do. These include:

  • completing all forms as soon as possible
  • getting your mortgage offer in place
  • contacting your conveyancing solicitor regularly


How will the property solicitor in Ashton advise me on the potential risk of possible flooding to properties in Ashton for a seventies property I am buying?


A conveyancer will carry out standard formal environmental searches that will include Ashton flood risk area data information. A more specialist set of searches, such as the Landmark search, may be recommended by your lawyer in Ashton if in the event that the initial

conveyancing searches reveal a flood risk. A recent check (26-Nov-12) there were no warnings around the River Thames from Ewen down to and including Cricklade at the Riverside properties and roads between Clifford Bridge and Chudleigh, including Clifford Bridge, vulnerable parts of Dunsford, Bridford Mills, Christow Bridge, Doddiscombsleigh, Lower Ashton and Trusham


My husband and I are purchasing a building in Ashton, and need to know if there are any conservation areas.


Conservation areas conserve neighbourhoods of architectural or historic interest. Your conveyancing lawyer will provide more details and address the impact buying in a conservation area may have.


For our lender, we have chosen Precise Mortgages, what will I need to check?


Some lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel'. Homeward Legal will act for the vast majority of lenders to keep legal costs to a minimum.


Will you need a chancel search? I am buying a house in Ashton.


Owners of property near to nearby church property may be required to pay for repairs. This is referred to as chancel repair liability. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a property, but insurance is available should an obligation to fund repairs be enforced. Churches in the local area include St John the Baptist and St Michael & All Angels.


The web is full of an increasing number resources about DIY conveyancing for example House Buying, Selling and Conveyancing. Do we necessarily want to use a conveyancing solicitor in Ashton for my move?


If you are so inclined refer to the various books, you can take care of the legal process without approaching a specialist conveyancer in Ashton. The truth is however that a conveyancing solicitor is in charge of a huge array of tasks such as chasing any missing replies/clarifications to enquiries and ensuring listed building alterations are compliant which really need a qualified professional. Above all else have a go conveyancers will not have appropriate cover which qualified solicitors firms are required to carry.


We have had a quote from you. Could I have to pay any supplementary hidden fees?


Regrettably, the practice of hiding extra costs in the 'small print' is quite common. Homeward Legal will never charge any hidden costs. Be aware that some websites offer unrealistically low 'quotes' which are in fact estimates. The bill you receive on completion can be much greater.
