How do I find affordable conveyancing?


This topic catches out many sellers and buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many firms promote cheap conveyancing quotes. However additional charges are frequently hidden in the small print. Busy, stressed sellers and buyers ignore these terms at their peril. Any disbursements should be included on a Leicestershire conveyancing quote


What makes purchase conveyancing to take months to complete?


The Leicestershire conveyancing process may experience many unexpected delays. Homeward Legal do our best to lessen the consequences of these delays wherever feasible.


How do I check that a residence is in a conservation area?


These areas indicate regions recognised as being of special architectural or historic interest. Ratby, Stoke Golding and Shelthorpe are among the conservation areas in Leicestershire. Your solicitor will offer more information.


We are buying in Leicestershire on a new development former industrial site. Is the soil potentially contaminated by waste minerals like mercury?

There are extensive regulations imposed to curtail soil contamination. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including polychlorinated biphenyl (PCBs) and groundwater contaminants like hydrocarbons.


How can a Leicestershire conveyancing solicitor report back on the risk and history of flooding in the Leicestershire area?


A critical component in the conveyancing process of purchasing a property involves your lawyer making an application for environmental searches that go in some details about the Leicestershire flood risk. A significantly more involved set of searches (most likely a Landmark Database search) may be proposed by your Leicestershire property solicitor if in the event that the initial searches show that there is a potential flood risk to the property.


In respect to the extensive flooding in Sept 2012 in the East Midlands we are questioning whether flood searches may not be thorough enough?


Flood risk searches carried out by a Leicestershire lawyer will include the far more informative search (Landmark) if it is felt necessary.

If you are still apprehensive try to contact a future neighbour.


Which of the lender panels in Leicestershire are you on?


Of lenders with local branches in Leicestershire, we alongside most. Leicestershire lenders and mortgage specialists include M Y, 18 Devonshire Sq, Loughborough, LE11 3DT, Oaktree Mortgages Ltd, 36 Burton St, Melton Mowbray, LE13 1AF, and Richmond Kerr Associates, Three Crowns Yard/High St, Market Harborough, LE16 7AF.


Which individual searches does the Leicestershire lawyer carry out when instructed on a Leicestershire flat?


The normal legal protocol will be to get Local Authority (council), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal), Environmental and Gypsum Mining Search, and possibly specific searches such as Official Search of Part with Priority (OS2).
