How do I get the cheapest conveyancing solicitors?


This catches out many buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many firms advertise supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately additional charges are often hiding in the solicitor's terms. Busy, stressed buyers and sellers ignore these terms at their peril. Extra fees included in the terms should be fair. Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.


Conveyancing and environmental searches may be conveyancing protocol but with recent events e g the extensive flooding in Sept 2012 in the East Midlands are they sufficient to ascertain sufficient information about the Ketton flood risk area?


The solicitor in Ketton will recommend that you also get property environmental searches if the environmental searches spots a Ketton flood risk.

It could be worth trying to converse with a local resident for that extra confidence.


Does Homeward Legal look after the legal conveyancing of auction properties in Ketton?

Our firm is highly knowledgeable with auction buyers and sellers. Normally specialist buildings like live work flats, are listed in auctions which tend to require added review. Lawyers therefore recommend that buyers decide on a SRA regulated lawyer before the property auction for a full review of the auction pack. After the auction day arrives your dedicated conveyancing lawyer is utterly focused on completing the legal side of things within the reduced time frame as required .


Do you recommend taking precautions to avoid paying SDLT?


Stamp duty reduction is not advised. Such schemes are costly and can be very unlikely to succeed.


I am going to a property auction and will need to ensure a fast conveyancing transaction, what do we need to aim for?


Contacting a proactive lawyer is key a fast conveyancing transaction. When identifying an appropriate a lawyer, consider these points: Will they work on a 'no sale, no fee' basis? Do they offer 'instant' online quotes? Do they use email as the preferred mode of communication?


Prudential Banking is going to be our mortgage lender, what do I need to be aware of?


A small number of lenders are now reducing the size of their 'solicitor panel'. For buyers, this can result in significantly increased legal costs. Homeward Legal can act on behalf of many lenders.


Are there many purchasers in Ketton gazumped?


This occurs when a house seller accepts an offer and then rejects it in favour of a second purchaser's offer. It could happen only days prior to exchange. The chance of getting gazumped exists for almost any purchase. Instructing a fast, efficient solicitor as soon as possible is a key first step to reducing this risk.


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


The risks posed by topsoil contamination to Ketton inhabitants are usually low. Other sources of contaminated land include food-processing waste and groundwater contamination.
