How do we get the best conveyancing rates for a £661k house?


The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many sellers and buyers paying out more than they anticipated in the end, and many solicitors offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often additional costs can increase the solicitor's invoice. Any additional charges listed in your solicitor's terms should be reasonable.

What particular searches will the Strood property lawyer get when carrying out the conveyancing for a Strood flat?


The common procedure will be to obtain Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal), Environment Search and Coal Mining (Con29M) and occasionally specific searches, which may include a Bankruptcy Search (K16).


What sort of investigation in respect to the risk of local flooding to properties in Kent will the conveyancing solicitor in Strood check out?

A necessary part of the legal due diligence process involved in buying a home involves your conveyancing lawyer making an application for conveyancing searches that set out information with regard to Strood area flood risk.


We are intending to buy a home in Sevenoaks. Will a chancel search be required?


Whether you are buying a home in Strood or elsewhere in the county, the conveyancing lawyer could advise that a chancel search is taken out. Although some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have determined to exact chancel repairs on the current owners, a solicitor cannot state with certainty that a parish which has not imposed liability will remain liability-free for new owners. For property in the parish of Sevenoaks, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.


I am purchasing in Strood, is it that important that conveyancing searches are done?


These searches are enquiries requested by the solicitor, which may include a drainage search. Searches are unrelated to a building survey and will not identify structural issues.


Why can conveyancing for a sale take weeks to complete?


The legal work needed to sell or purchase a property may potentially be delayed for many reasons. The delays may be out of the solicitors' control, Homeward Legal, however, see how frustrating such delays may be and seek to reduce their impact by using fast search providers. Common delays may include the time taken to return management information.


How long may be allowed for the conveyancing process take, in your experience?


The number of weeks taken to transfer a residence can vary, according to a handful of concerns including whether a mortgage is involved. Homeward Legal solicitors ensure each client receives communicative and proactive service, resulting in the fastest possible outcome.
