I am trying to find the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Silsoe. What should we check?


The confusion over this matter catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many law firms claim to offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often extra fees are often hiding in the small print which unwary homeowners fail to check. Based on the property you intend to buy, our online quote calculator will generate an accurate statement of conveyancing fees.


How many mortgage lenders in Silsoe do you work with?


The Homeward Legal group can work with the majority of lenders financing home purchasers in Silsoe. Silsoe lenders and mortgage specialists include Platina, 18 South Av, Elstow, Bedford, MK42 9YS, McGirl's, 23 St. Cuthberts St, Bedford, MK40 3JG, and Brown Stuart Mortgage Services, 3 Home Farm/Toddington Rd, Tebworth, Leighton Buzzard, LU7 9QD. Your solicitor will be able to give more detail.


Principality Building Society is our lender - is there anything we need to check?


Buyers should know that, in some cases, lenders have limited the firms who can act for them, potentially creating increased legal costs for buyers. Homeward Legal, fortunately, will act for many mortgage lenders.


Is there anything we are supposed to do to make our Silsoe conveyancing faster?

Many buyers will, correctly, argue that instructing a proactive solicitor is essential to a fast conveyancing transaction. Ask these questions when identifying your conveyancer:

  • Do they use email as the preferred mode of communication?
  • Did you experience any delays when requesting a quote?
  • Are they 'no move, no fee'? This can incentivise a faster transaction.


What is the authority that looks after for publishing the state of neglect the conservation areas in Silsoe?


Local conservation areas are nominated by the local Central Bedfordshire planning authority, who manage everything from including things like neon signs, removal of chimney stacks and public spaces. English Heritage keep records about the condition of conservation areas in addition to the risk of a decline in standards.


Is a house survey advisable when purchasing a property?


It is suggested that you instruct a property surveyor to undertake a survey if buying in Silsoe. A wide range of concerns can affect a property. These can include insect infestation. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.


In what ways does the property lawyer in Silsoe report back on the potential risk of a flood in the Silsoe area on a Regency house we intend to purchase?


An experienced conveyancing solicitor applies for environmental searches, which include Silsoe area flood risk information.


How is Silsoe contaminated land identified?


Residential property in Silsoe will be contaminated by many naturally-occurring factors. Contaminants including shallow mining and sand or gravel pits should be reported on during conveyancing searches.
