We need to find a cheap solicitor to purchase a freehold property. What do I need to check for?


Various law firms promote so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing', but additional costs are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms of engagement, left unregarded by busy buyers Any additional charges listed in the terms needs to be fair. Get a quote using the Homeward Legal quote calculator for the property you are buying.


Is set up to act quickly on property auction conveyancing in Hockley?


In fact we are familiar with local and national auctions and often act for buyers at auction. It is prudent for bidders to choose a SRA regulated lawyer as fast as possible to allow enough time for a title report of the legal pack well before the day of the auction. Following the property auction date your instructed property lawyer is fully focused on finishing the legal work inside a month as typically required .


In what ways can the conveyancer in Hockley advise us on the risk and history of possible flooding to properties in Hockley?


An important component in the legal process involves your solicitor making an application for environmental searches for information with regard to Hockley flood risk area data.


We are using a lender in Essex, and need to know which Hockley lenders you can work with. Whose panels are you on?


We are able to work with the bulk of lenders listed with the Council of Mortgage Lenders. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Hockley, including Stonebridge (Mortgage Services) Ltd, Stonebridge House/Main Rd, Hawkwell, Hockley, SS5 4JH, and Essex Mortgage Centre, 1 Branksome Av, Hockley, SS5 5PF.


If we are intending to buy in the parish of Little Burstead, do we need a chancel search?


Your property lawyer should confirm that a chancel search be ordered, irrespective of the parish where the home being bought is located. In older areas of Hockley, chancel repair dues can be collected on current owners of a home where parish councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.


What can searches cost?


Conveyancing searches ranges in cost, depending on the searches chosen. Searches are disbursements paid to a third party, and are not included in a quote for solicitor's fees.


At what point should I instruct a conveyancer?


If you choose a firm with 'no move, no fee' protection, earlier is preferable, as the legal work can begin very early in the process. A number of sources recommend postponing instruction until an offer has been firmly agreed, but doing so will put you at a disadvantage compared to better prepared buyers, or if your buyer decides to pull out due to delays.


Is it important that we get a chancel search? I am buying a residence in Hockley.


In Hockley, some owners can be required to fund maintenance of nearby church property. Following a change in the law, interest over any affected land in Hockley must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. Church properties in the area include St Peter & St Paul's Church and Wilnecote S.Matthew.
