What are the best rates for conveyancing for a 612,000 property?


Many property lawyers promote supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes. However additional costs will be included in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Extra fees ought to be fair and reasonable. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.


We are buying in Brentwood. Can we verify if the house is in a conservation area?


These areas safeguard local areas of historical merit. You may wish to contact the local council for more detail, but your solicitor will investigate the impact of conservation areas or other planning restrictions.


What local factors can impact land in Brentwood. Are they an issue?


Several contaminants can damage property, like environmental radon sources and proximity to scrap yards. An environmental search will give more information.


When do we need to get a conveyancer in Brentwood?


If you choose a solicitor with 'no move, no fee' protection, the earlier, the better, as there are a number of tasks which may be carried out immediately. Early instruction of a solicitor to act on your Brentwood sale or purchase can reduce the likelihood of the transaction stalling.


Might the conveyancing fees in Brentwood conceal any additional charges?


Our solicitors will never charge any additional charges to buy or sell a home in Brentwood. Some websites offer unrealistically low 'quotes' which are in fact estimates. The final bill you receive may be much more.


I am planning on buying a period investment flat in a Brentwood conservation area, how do we uncover data concerning the state of repair of the area?


Local conservation areas are designated by the local authority (Brentwood) who police conservation area concerns from whether trees can be cut down to the halting of neglected buildings. English Heritage, a government body, maintain a list of the state of conservation areas.


Will we need a Homebuyer Report for this Brentwood property purchase?


It is highly recommended that all purchasers in Brentwood arrange a surveyor. Buyers should be aware that there are a range of defects that can affect a property. These can include cracked roof tiles and insect infestation. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.


First Active will be our mortgage lender, what do I need to be aware of?


Buyers in Brentwood need to be aware that a small number of lenders have decreased the number of firms on their approved panel, potentially creating greater conveyancing costs for buyers. Homeward Legal can act on behalf of most lenders in the UK.
