We need a cheap solicitor for selling a auction property. What do I need to check for?


Many firms promote so-called cheap conveyancing, however additional fees may pad the final bill. Extras which are listed in terms of engagement needs to be clearly defined. They only apply to matters if your lawyer must complete additional work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. A quote for conveyancing in Wells should state third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid.Our online calculator will create an accurate quote for your sell.


What will a Wells property solicitor do when the home we hope to purchase is in a conservation area and has unsuitable roof aerials installed?


The property solicitor should establish if the property is within a designated conservation area, and if so whether any alterations have the essential consents. In the absence of any consents, your conveyancing solicitor will recommend all options, which include getting from Mendip local authority or getting covered by indemnity insurance.


How much would the cost of my searches be?


With a Homeward Legal solicitor, conveyancing clients are expected to pay no more than £249 for searches in Wells. These searches are disbursements.


Are charges for obtaining duplicate freehold company share certificates disbursements or fees?


Comparing quotes is not always straightforward, considering differences in terminology. These costs are fees not disbursements, and should be included in a quote.


If we are intending to buy near Wells, in the parish of Kilmington, do we need a chancel search?


Whichever Wells parish you are purchasing in, a Wells conveyancing solicitor could recommend a chancel search. Chancel repair can be imposed on current owners of a house where church councils may have not done so in the past. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.


Which elements assist with ensuring a fast exchange and completion?


Essential to a fast conveyancing transaction is to use a communicative solicitor. There are various jobs you as the purchaser can do to accelerate the legal work. These include:

  • calling or emailing your solicitor, and chase them if you suspect any delays
  • quickly completing and return any forms
  • getting your mortgage offer in place


We need to know which Wells lenders you can work with. Whose panels are your solicitors members of?


We can work with all the major lenders providing financing to Wells home purchasers. Lenders and mortgage specialists in Wells include Mendip Mortgage & Insurance Services, Beltane/ Constitution Hill, Dulcote, Wells, BA5 3NU.


Can I confirm that a property is in one of Wells's conservation areas?


These areas safeguard neighbourhoods recorded as being of 'special architectural and historic interest'. You may wish to contact the local council if you have specific questions, but your solicitor will investigate the impact of conservation areas or other planning restrictions.
