We are trying to find fixed rate conveyancing, we are on a tight budget.


This catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many conveyancers claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing', however extra costs are often hiding in the small print. Excited buyers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Your quote ought to define any disbursements. Extra costs included in your solicitor's terms should be fair. They be applied only where your solicitor must complete additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.


Freshford conveyancing solicitors apply for varied searches when acting for a purchaser, but which specific ones?

How can we confirm that a residence is in a conservation area?


With around 9,000 such areas across the country, the regions around Freshford will include a range of conservation areas. A conveyancing lawyer will discuss the relevant responsibilities you would be taking on by purchasing in a conservation area.


We are buying on a brownfield land. Could the soil be contaminated by industrial waste?

Data on other contaminants, like groundwater contaminants like phenols, will also be included in an environmental search.


Does 'fixtures and fittings' include things like beds?


Purchasers are regularly frustrated by a lack of clarity around which fixtures and fittings are included in a purchase. This can be overlooked, making the completion and approval of a comprehensive fixtures and fittings form so important.


Should we make use of a property lawyer named by my estate agent in Caistor?


Many agents in Caistor will have a referral arrangement with solicitors where they refer clients to them, however, these referrals must be carefully considered, as there is a risk that an agent may choose whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the best solicitor for your needs.


Is a property survey advisable if we are purchasing property in Freshford?


Homeward Legal recommend that Freshford buyers book a RICS surveyor. There can be many concerns that affect a property, that will not be addressed during the conveyancing process, for example flat roof leaks.
