On the purchase of a £319,000 home, what will be the fees? I need low cost conveyancing.


Many firms promote so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra fees are frequently hidden in the terms. Busy, stressed buyers ignore these terms at their peril. Any disbursements to be paid ought to be listed on your conveyancing quote


What does a Mayfield conveyancing solicitor do when the property we hope to purchase is in a local authority conservation area and has unsuitable windows added?


Wealden planning authority LLC1 searches carried out by your Mayfield conveyancing solicitor will ascertain if the property is in a designated conservation area proof of planning consent for alterations will be asked for.

In the absence of any the necessary permissions, your solicitor will advise you of the alternatives which include requesting retrospective permission from Wealden planning authority or purchasing an indemnity policy.


I am planning to sell my house and have a quote from you. Might we need to pay any extra costs?

No. Homeward Legal's solicitors do not hide any hidden extra fees. If you are comparing quotes, consider that some solicitors' firms will give a low estimate, not an accurate quote, which could be totally different to your final invoice.


As a result of the Met Office warn of more intense rain - 15-30% (according to climate change risk in 2012) we are questioning whether flood risk searches won't be detailed enough?


The property lawyer in Mayfield should get detailed conveyancing and environmental searches if the standard search spots a Mayfield flood risk area

You can contact a local resident for that further confidence.


Holmesdale Building Society is going to be our mortgage lender, what will we need to be aware of?


Some lenders are now reducing the size of their 'solicitor panel', which may result in higher legal costs for property buyers. Homeward Legal are able to act on behalf of the vast majority of mortgage lenders.


Are there any conservation areas in Mayfield?


Areas considered to be of architectural or historic interest, like mining villages, may be recognised as conservation areas. The local authority will be able to offer more information about local conservation areas, and the solicitor handling your purchase should discuss what specific restrictions are in place.


What factors can affect land in Mayfield?


Residential property may be contaminated by a range of environmental factors, such as radioactive substances in the region. An environmental search should offer more information.


Please tell us why conveyancing takes such a long time?


The legal work required to buy or sell a house or flat will occasionally experience delays. We aim to minimise the burden of these delays, where possible, by chasing for prompt responses. There are numerous reasons for delay, such as the length of time it takes for the managing agent or landlord to respond to queries.
