What will the overall charge be on the sale of a £640k home? I am looking for affordable conveyancing in Oxfordshire.


Several firms advertise supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional charges are often hiding in the solicitor's terms of engagement.


Will a local Oxfordshire lawyer request personal or official searches on my home purchase?


Your property lawyer will inform you about the ideal course of action, depending on things like mortgage lender requirements. If personal searches are used, your property lawyer might perhaps look for a local search agent like Search Solutions, 55 Victoria Road, Bicester, Oxfordshire, OX26 6PH Tel: 01869 322077 Fax: 01869 243327


As a consequence of the Met Office projecting more intense rainfall in the future I am concerned that conveyancing and environmental searches aren't thorough enough?


Environmental searches carried out by a conveyancing solicitor in Oxfordshire will also include a more in depth search (Landmark) if it is felt necessary.

If you are concerned you could try to contact a local resident.


How long may conveyancing legal work take? I am buying in Oxfordshire.


For most property in Oxfordshire, the number of weeks required to sell or purchase a residence may vary. This is affected by potentially many legal considerations including if either party has a mortgage. 8 to 12 weeks is the average for many firms, we however drive the process forwards, completing within eight weeks.


How might purchase conveyancing legal work go on for so long?


The conveyancing process may be lengthy. Homeward Legal work hard to minimise the cost of these delays whenever it is possible by, for example, ordering searches as early as possible. Reasons for delay may include a slow firm acting for the lender.

  • Q.

    In what ways can a Oxfordshire property lawyer advise me on the potential risk of flooding in Oxfordshire?


    A necessary component in the legal due diligence process involves the conveyancing solicitor carrying out environmental searches that set out information with regard to Oxfordshire flood risk area. An inexpensive in-depth flood search (most likely a Landmark Database search) will sometimes be suggested by a qualified Oxfordshire property lawyer if in the event that the environmental search highlight a potential flood risk to the property.
