How do I find low cost conveyancing?


Many solicitors advertise cheap conveyancing quotes. Often extra fees are often hiding in small print. Additional fees should be reasonable and be applicable solely where the solicitor must complete work beyond standard conveyancing on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. A conveyancing quote should also state any disbursements to be paid.Get a quote using the Homeward Legal quote calculator for the property you are buying.


Will we need a property surveyor to examine our Tewkesbury property purchase?


Homeward Legal heavily advise that all purchasers instruct a house surveyor to perform a survey. Numerous problems have a negative impact on a property, which include cracks around door frames and dry rot. Such issues will not be considered during the conveyancing work itself.


As a result of the major flooding in Sept 2012 in South West England I am concerned that flood risk searches won't be thorough enough?

Property conveyancing searches handled by your conveyancing solicitor in Tewkesbury should include the far more detailed search (Landmark) if the risk is deemed significant.

You can always speak to a next door neighbour for additional confidence.


What are 'conveyancing searches'?


These searches are queries ordered on behalf of the purchaser. Searches are strongly recommended, however they deal with issues with the property's title.


What length of time may be accounted for conveyancing require, on average?


Generally speaking, the time needed to buy or sell a property varies, influenced by a number of issues. The national average is 8 to 12 weeks, whereas Homeward Legal aim for faster conveyancing, driving the transaction to complete within 6 to 8 weeks.


Is there a risk that our purchase may be gazumped?


Gazumping arises when an offer is accepted but then rejected by the seller, in preference to a higher offer. Though gazumping is uncommon when property prices are falling, there is still a danger. Consider instructing your property solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer to reduce the chance of your offer being gazumped.


What will the Tewkesbury property lawyer do if the property I am planning to buy is within a registered conservation area and has inappropriate new windows fitted?


A property solicitor to ascertain whether your proposed purchase is located within a conservation area and whether any modifications have the required consents from the Tewkesbury authority.
