We are trying to find a cheap East of England solicitor to own property. How do I get a quote?


Many firms claim to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra charges may be added into the terms. Applicable disbursements must also be stated on a quote. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.


In what ways can the conveyancer in East of England advise me on the risk and history of floods in the East of England region?


A vital part of the conveyancing protocol involved in buying a home involves the conveyancer carrying out environmental searches that set out information with regard to East of England area flood risk. In addition a East of England conveyancer will often advocate a more involved (e.g. Landmark) involved local flood search.


Is contaminated land a problem in East of England?


Residential property may have been contaminated by several human activities. Issues including limestone or gypsum quarrying or hazardous substances in the ground should be reported on during conveyancing searches.


Do we need a building survey?


Homeward Legal firmly recommend that the majority of buyers order a house survey. It is a fact that there are a wide range of concerns which can affect a property, for example subsidence. Such issues will not be considered during the conveyancing work itself.


Will our East of England lawyer tell me about the amount of council tax to be paid for a Band A property prior to exchanging contracts?


Your property's relevant council tax band will almost always be highlighted in the conveyancer's title report, as well as by the local council

The latest tax rates for East of England are listed at the Forest Heath council site. At the time of writing, 29 September 2012, rates are as follows:

  • Band A - £1,007.00
  • Band B - £1,175.00
  • Band C - £1,343.00
  • Band D - £1,510.00
  • Band E - £1,846.00
  • Band F - £2,182.00
  • Band G - £2,517.00
  • Band H - £3,021.00


Do you have low cost solicitors that deal with auction conveyancing in East of England?


Our company is highly experienced with buyers at auction. Usually hard to value buildings are included at property auctions which tend to necessitate increased investigation. We therefore advise auction buyers to choose a qualified lawyer before the day of the auction to allow enough time for a full report.

Thereafter, following the auction day itself your now prepared property conveyancing lawyer is totally focused on completing the legal work inside the limited time as required by the terms of sale.


If my family are buying in the East of England, will I need a chancel search?


The judgement in Aston Cantlow (PCC) v Wallbank reaffirmed that 'lay rectors' of property must fund church repairs. A number of sources are used to identify liability, including maps of East of England's parish boundaries.


Which mortgage lenders in the East of England do you work with?

A number of mortgage specialists operate in the East of England, including Mortgage Store, 2 Church Street, Ampthill, Bedford, MK45 2EH, Mortgage Medics, 51 Send Barns Lane, Send, Woking, GU23 7BS, and R M Mortgage Solutions, Po Box 15027, Sutton Coldfield, B73 9QW.
