We are trying to find affordable conveyancing. Will we get a quote or and estimate?


Several firms offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes, however extra fees may be added into the small print which unwary sellers and buyers fail to check. The conveyancing quote should also state any disbursements to be paid.Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


Our lender is Lloyds TSB Scotland, is there anything we need to be aware of?


House buyers should be aware that a small number of lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel'. Homeward Legal, however, can act on behalf of the majority of mortgage lenders.


We are on a very tight budget. Can doing the conveyancing myself without the help of a solicitor in Gilwern possibly save any money?


There are no reasons why a home mover cant reasonably embark on the legal process without the help of a professional property solicitor in Gilwern. However, a property solicitor in Gilwern juggles a huge array of roles from such as chasing any outstanding docs or identifying the most appropriate searches some of which are more safely handled with appropriate a qualified professional. Essentially have a go conveyancers are not covered by the applicable indemnity cover which qualified legal practices need to carry.


I plan to buy a home in Monmouth. Will a chancel search be compulsory?


A solicitor could advise that a chancel search is ordered. Although some parish councils have opted to charge chancel repairs on the owners, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish which has not imposed liability will not automatically be the case for future owners. For property in the parish of Monmouth, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.


Will we need to get searches for chancel liability if I am purchasing on the same street as a rectory built in the 14th Century in Gilwern?


Owners of property near to specific local church buildings may be required to contribute towards the cost of repairs. This is referred to as chancel repair liability. Insurance may be available to protect a buyer should a Gilwern Parochial Church Council enforce liability.


Which government authority has overall responsibility for overseeing the state of repair of the conservation areas in Gilwern?


English Heritage have produced a list of the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas. Local conservation areas such as paths, addition of PVC windows or neglected buildings are maintain by the local Monmouthshire planning authority.


Might the legal fees conceal any hidden fees?


Homeward Legal's solicitors never hide any hidden extra fees for standard conveyancing. You should be aware that some solicitors only estimate conveyancing costs, which they will not be bound to.


I am anxious about council tax amounts on a Forties end of terrace home in Gilwern, how much are they?
