How do we get a cheap solicitor in Lincoln for purchasing a house?


Numerous law firms advertise so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. However additional charges are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms of engagement, left unregarded by busy property buyers and sellers We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.


The estate agent we're using in Melton Mowbray has referred a solicitors firm. Do we need to use this solicitor?


Both agents and mortgage brokers will often refer a solicitors firm, however, such referrals must be carefully considered, as some agents may 'recommend' the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.


Might costs for the conveyancing conceal any supplementary hidden fees?


No. We will not charge any extra, hidden costs under any circumstances. A Homeward Legal quote is an honest and accurate price the legal expenses for your move.


Bookshops and the web both have a multitude of online documents all about doing your own legal work. Do I really need to use a Lincoln lawyer ?


Hypothetically speaking there are no reasons why a home mover shouldn't complete the conveyancing on your own. However, a conveyancer takes care of a long list of assignments e.g. drafting contracts and communicating with managing agents some of which need experience.


Are there many designated conservation areas in Lincoln?


These areas specify areas designated as being of architectural or historic interest. Cathedral and City Centre, St Peter at Gowts and St Catherines are among the conservation areas in Lincoln. Living in a conservation area can mean an increase in local property values, but the restrictions adds to upkeep costs. A solicitor will address the consequences of purchasing property in a conservation area.


As a result of the widespread flooding in Sept 2012 in the East Midlands we are apprehensive that environmental searches might not be detailed enough?


Flood risk searches applied for by a Lincoln property solicitor will also include the far more detailed Landmark flood search if required.

If you remain worried why not contact a neighbour of the property or regional Lincolnshire flood damage business try: D P Wilkinson Roofing & Building Ltd, 31 Queensway, Skellingthorpe, Lincoln, LN6 4RJ Tel: 01522 821131.


I am purchasing a property in the parish of Barrow upon Humber. Will a chancel search be important?


Whether you are buying a residence in Lincoln or elsewhere in the county, the solicitor may suggest that a chancel search is taken out. In Lincoln's much older areas, chancel repair dues can be collected on new owners of a residence where Parochial Church Councils may have spared previous owners or tenants, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.
