How do I find low cost conveyancing?


Many firms claim to offer so-called cheap conveyancing. However extra charges will be included in the small print. A conveyancing quote must also state any disbursements to be paid. Any extra costs listed in terms of engagement should be fair and reasonable. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.


Will our conveyancing solicitor in Kidlington inform me about the cost of council tax on a Band A maisonette prior to exchange of contracts?

In respect of the fact that last year was second wettest year since records began we are questioning whether conveyancing searches (environmental) aren't sufficient?

A solicitor in Kidlington will recommend that you get property environmental searches if the standard conveyancing searches identifies a significant risk the local Kidlington flood risk

You can always contact a neighbour or local resident for that extra information.


What type of local searches as respects the risk of floods in the Oxfordshire area will my conveyancing solicitor in Kidlington be able to do?


An important step in the conveyancing procedure involves your conveyancing lawyer conducting conveyancing and environmental searches that set out detail with respect to Kidlington flood risk area data.


I am buying in Kidlington with Bradford and Bingley - is there anything I need to know?


Purchasers should be aware that, in some cases, lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel, resulting in higher legal costs for buyers if a second solicitor is required by their lender. Homeward Legal can act on behalf of all major mortgage lenders.


Are the many conservation areas in Kidlington likely to affect us?


These areas preserve regions defined as being of special architectural or historic interest. The local council will be able to advise further about local conservation areas, and the lawyer handling your purchase should discuss what specific restrictions are in place.


At what point is it wise to speak to a conveyancing solicitor?


Simply, the earlier, the better, as there are a number of tasks that can begin straight away. Prompt instruction of a solicitor to act for you on your Kidlington transaction could mitigate the chance of the purchase or sale stalling.


What environmental concerns can contaminate land in Kidlington. Are these comprehensively investigated?


Several contaminants may potentially impair residential property in Kidlington, and factors such as environmental radon sources and brine works should be considered as part of the appropriate search.
