We are trying to find an affordable Waterhouses conveyancing quote. What are the risks?


Both high-street and online firms advertise theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however extra costs can inflate the final bill. Any extra costs included in the terms should be reasonable and clear. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


Waterhouses conveyancers order a variety of searches when they are instructed by a property purchaser - what specific ones?


If applying for a mortgage, your lender mandates at least the following for Waterhouses: Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environment Search and perhaps specific local searches for example SIM Search.


How do we determine SDLT, how much will it be on a £420000 property?


The Stamp Duty Land Tax that will be due will depend on the purchase price. It is £12600 on a £420000 Waterhouses home (accurate March 2013).


Our lender will be Bank of Scotland, what will we need to know?


When taking out a mortgage to buy a property, your lender will require legal work to be carried out on their behalf. Purchasers should consider that

some lenders are now reducing the size of their 'solicitor panel'. This can mean increased conveyancing costs for property buyers. Homeward Legal can act for the majority of lenders.


Myself and my partner are interested in purchasing in Waterhouses. How do I confirm that the building is in a conservation area?


Conservation areas recognise regions of historical or architectural value. The local authority will advise further about local conservation areas, and the conveyancing solicitor handling your purchase address the impact buying in a conservation area may have.


Would the house's form for fixtures and fittings include things such as cupboards?


Purchasers in Waterhouses are frequently confused by the lack of detail regarding what fixtures and fittings will be included with a property. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction. This makes a fixtures and fittings form so necessary.


When do you need to instruct a solicitor?


With a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, the sooner you instruct a conveyancing firm, the better. The legal work can then begin straight away. Promptly instructing a solicitor can reduce the likelihood of your sale or purchase falling though.


Food risk searches are conveyancing protocol but with recent events such as the serious flooding last year in the Midlands are they actually good enough to ascertain sufficient information about the Waterhouses future flood risk?


The property solicitor in Waterhouses should get additional specialist flood risk searches if the standard conveyancing searches flag up a Waterhouses flood risk area data

You could also try to speak to a local resident for additional further local history.
