How do I get low cost conveyancing in Godalming?


Many law firms promote theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing', but additional fees will be included in the terms. Additional charges listed in the solicitor's terms should be fair and reasonable.


Would getting a house survey be advisable when purchasing a house or flat, regardless of its age?


It is strongly recommended that buyers book a surveyor. There can be many concerns that will impact a property, that will not be addressed during the conveyancing process, which include failed double glazing.


Do you have low cost solicitors that advise on property auction conveyancing in Godalming?


Our residential property lawyers regularly work for auction buyers and sellers. Our panel of property lawyers have been instructed by numerous buyers and sellers at local residential property auctions including Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London, Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.

Canny purchasers tend to formally appoint a suitable lawyer as ahead of time as possible to allow enough time for a thorough review of the auction pack before the property auction date.

Immediately following the auction day arrives your Homeward Legal lawyer is ready for completing the transaction in 28 days as typically required .


Are buyers often gazumped in Godalming?

Gazumping is common across England and Wales and occurs when a home owner approves an offer, only to refuse it, opting for a better offer. There is almost always a danger of gazumping. Instructing your property solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer to handle your transaction should help to reduce the likelihood of gazumping.


Do I need a chancel search? I am buying a Godalming property on the same road as a 12th Century rectory.


Owners of property in a neighbourhood near church property in the locality are expected to contribute towards the cost of repairs, as a result of chancel repair liability. As a consequence of a recent Act, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. Godalming churches include Busbridge Church, Hambledon Church, Ockford Ridge St Mark and Parish Church St Peter & St Paul.


What average time does it take the conveyancer to handle the conveyancing work on an apartment in a Thirties building we are thinking of buying?


The conveyancing process can take anywhere between 3 weeks and twelve weeks, which can be affected by a number of things, like the efficiency of the seller's property lawyer, or the speed of the lender.


Are there any mortgage lenders with branches in Godalming?


Most lenders in Godalming are on our panels. Local mortgage lenders and brokers include Your Choice Mortgage Services Ltd, The Old Barn, Lower Eashing, Godalming, GU7 2QF, Berkeley Warburg, Central House/Woodside Pk/Catteshall La, Godalming, GU7 1LG, and Buckley A JFinancial Management Ltd, Brighton Rd, Godalming, GU7 1NS.


What does a Godalming property lawyer do when the home I want to buy is in a local authority conservation area and has unsuitable dormer windows added?


Your instructed solicitor will always identify if the property is located within a designated conservation area, and if so whether any modifications have appropriate consents from the local authority. In the absence of any the necessary permissions, your Godalming conveyancing solicitor will advise you of the best alternatives, which include obtaining retrospective permission from Guildford local authority or purchasing an indemnity insurance policy.
