How can we ensure our cheap quote is fixed? We are trying to find a discount conveyancing quote.


This catches out many sellers and buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many firms advertise 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately additional costs are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Your conveyancing quote must also state costs to be paid to third parties, like the local authority, (disbursements). Any additional fees listed in terms of engagement needs to be reasonable.


Handling the legal work without the support of a Telford property solicitor is becoming possible when buying and selling a flat but would it actually be foolhardy ?


Technically, there is no reason at all why you cannot complete the your own conveyancing on your own. In reality however, a lawyer in Telford juggles a huge array of assignments such as chasing deeds and DS1 documents or identifying conservation area breaches most of which require experience. Moreover solicitors firms are under a duty to have relevant insurance to insulate you from any losses you encounter.


If I am buying in Telford by a 17th Century rectory manor, is it advisable that I get a chancel liability search?

Chancel repair liability can require home owners to fund repairs to older church buildings. Following a change in the law, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. Ecclesiastical properties in the area include Priorslee St.Peters, River Community Church, St Georges and Wombridge St.Mary and St.Leonard.


Myself and my partner are intending to buy in Telford. How can we check that the house is in a conservation area?


Areas deemed to be of architectural merit, such as 19th century suburbs, will be designated as conservation areas. You may wish to contact the local authority for more information, but your solicitor will investigate the impact of conservation areas or other planning restrictions.


Would getting a property survey be necessary when buying a property, irrespective of its condition?


Homeward Legal recommend that home buyers in Telford instruct a property surveyor. There can be a wide range of problems which can negatively affect a property, which will not be addressed during a property valuation, including poor drainage or settlement.


Which factors will impact land in Telford. Will they be checked for comprehensively?


Property will be contaminated by a wide range of factors caused by man and by nature. Contaminants such as air pollution and coal mining will be investigated during the conveyancing process. Contamination can be caused by local landfill sites, including Grange Lane, Redhill, TF2 9PB.


We are going to buy a converted investment property in a Telford conservation area, where does one find information on the state of repair of the conservation area?


Following a campaign, English Heritage maintain a detailed list about the condition of conservation areas along with the vulnerability to deterioration or improvement. Conservation areas are specified by Telford and Wrekin who administer everything from paths to street guard rails.


I am selling in Telford, and have had a quote from you. Could there be any hidden costs?


No. Our solicitors do not hide any additional costs to buy or sell a home. Buyers and sellers should be aware that some solicitors' firms will give a low estimate, not an accurate quote, which they will not be bound to.
