I need a low cost conveyancing estimate. What should be watch out for?


Several property lawyers offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. However extra charges may be added into the terms. Any fees listed in the terms should be reasonable and be applicable solely where the conveyancer is required to complete unexpected extra work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Your Cranfield conveyancing quote should list the disbursements to be paid.Get a quote using the Homeward Legal quote calculator for the property you are buying.


Fixtures and fittings refer to which items?


Usually, there is not a legal definition of 'fixtures and fittings'. A fixtures and fittings form can avoid any disputes, stating what is included with the sale.


I have read about the fact that 2012 was second wettest year since on record I am wondering if property environmental searches might not be detailed enough?


A qualified Cranfield solicitor will recommend that you also get property environmental searches (Landmark search) if the initial searches establishes a significant risk of flooding in Cranfield

It could be worth trying to also get in touch with a neighbour or local resident for that extra local history.


Which local authority is responsible for Cranfield?


Cranfield is located in Central Bedfordshire Council, Priory House, Monks Walk, Chicksands, Bedfordshire, SG17 5TQ, contact: 0300 300 8000


Will the costs for my conveyancing incorporate any extra costs?


Homeward Legal's solicitors do not hide any additional costs. Some solicitors only estimate conveyancing costs, meaning that your final bill could be much higher.


Will it be necessary to get a chancel search if we are buying in the parish of Houghton Regis?


Your solicitor should confirm that a chancel search is ordered, irrespective of the parish in which the property being purchased is found. Through some church councils have exercised their right to impose chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, there is no way to be certain that a parish where chancel repair fees have not been paid previously will continue to be free from liability. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.


Do we need to select the property lawyer suggested by the estate agent?


If you choose a solicitor referred through this route, you may have the advantage of the agent being able to pressure a solicitor to wrap up the process as soon as possible, however, these referrals should be compared against alternatives, as some agents choose the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.


What will searches be?


With Homeward Legal, a client will be expected to pay at a maximum £249 for conveyancing searches. Searches are disbursements, and are charged at cost.
