How do we find the best conveyancing rates in Bideford for a £511k house?


Both high-street and online solicitors promote theoretically cheap conveyancing. However additional costs may be added into small print, left unread by preoccupied buyers and sellers Any additional costs should be fair. They be applied only where the conveyancer must complete work beyond standard conveyancing in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.


How long on average does it take our lawyer to exchange all of the legal process on an apartment in a home we are thinking of buying?


The conveyancing process can take anywhere between 3 weeks and three months, which can depend on a number of things for example the efficiency of the vendor's conveyancer, or the speed of managing agents. Homeward Legal's conveyancing solicitors are focused on communication completing in as short a time as realistically possible.


The residence being purchased is on a ex-industrial use land. Could the top-soil be contaminated by industrial waste?


Restrictions exist to limit topsoil contamination, but some existing contaminants can reside for decades after exposure. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including groundwater contaminants like pesticides.

Flood searches are standard procedure but when one considers recent weather changes such as the major flooding in Sept 2012 in South West England are they still appropriate to advise me sufficient information about the evolving Bideford risk of flooding?


A competent solicitor in Bideford will carry out flood searches (Landmark search) if the environmental search flags up a risk.

Sometimes buyers get in touch with a neighbour to get further assurance or local Devon flooding repair expert, like Taylors Property Services, 3 Golf Links Rd, Westward Ho, Bideford, EX39 1LH Tel: 01237 421230.


When I am buying a residence near land owned by the church in Bideford, is it advisable that I get a chancel search?


Potentially amounting to over £100,000 in repair cost obligations, chancel liability should be considered by buyers of Bideford property likely to be affected. As a result of the Land Registration Act 2002, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. The solicitor acting on your behalf will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary. Church of England properties in Bideford include St Mary and St Peter.


Unforeseeable personal circumstances mean we need to get going and exchange contracts on the sale of our jointly owned property quickly, do you introduce any fast solicitors in Bideford ?


Homeward Legal takes a take charge modus operandi to completing the necessary legal work to meet the sellers requirements.

With us, conveyancing property lawyers will always communicate through every part of the home buyer and seller chain and employ the latest integrated technology to exchange on the legal work to your preferred move date.


Should we select the property lawyer who works with by the local agent?


The agent will be able to pressure a solicitors firm they refer a large volume of work to, and can therefore to move the conveyancing process along. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, there is a risk that the agent may suggest the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.
