Q.

I am trying to find a firm that offers cheap conveyancing. How do we get a quote?

A.

The confusion over this point catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many conveyancers offer supposedly cheap conveyancing, however additional costs are frequently hidden in small print that buyers often do not check. Extra charges listed in the solicitor's terms needs to be fair and clearly defined. Any disbursements should also be included on the conveyancing quote. The online quote calculator can generate an accurate statement of the legal fees for the property you plan to buy.

Q.

How long on average should it take for our conveyancing solicitor to conclude all of the legal work on a maisonette in a Regency house we are intending to purchase?

A.

The conveyancing process can take anywhere between 1 month and twelve weeks, based on a number of things for example the efficiency of the vendor's conveyancing solicitor, or absent parties.

Our solicitors are extremely results-focused completing the process as promptly as achievable.

Q.

My estate agent has suggested a firm of solicitors. Is it a good idea to instruct this solicitor?

A.

Your Griffithstown agent will often endorse a conveyancing solicitor, however, such referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, as there is a risk that the agent may suggest the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.

Q.

We are going to buy a property, and have a conveyancing quote from you. Could there be any additional charges?

A.

Homeward Legal do not charge any additional costs. Some firms only provide estimates disguised as quotes, which could be totally different to your final invoice.

Q.

Is a Homebuyer Report advisable when we are purchasing a house or flat, regardless of its age?

A.

We suggest that you book a home surveyor when you plan to buy in Abbeymeads. Buyers should be aware that there are a wide range of problems which can affect a property, that a solicitor will be unable to address, including corrosion of pipework.

Q.

We are buying on a recently-developed brownfield site. Is the topsoil potentially contaminated by waste minerals like chromium?

A.

There are considerable regulations to limit soil contamination. Environment search results will factor contaminants, including metals and others such as groundwater contamination.

Q.

Abbeymeads property solicitors get official property when they are acting for a property buyer, which specific ones?

A.

When applying for a mortgage the lender mandates a specified set of searches, including the following for properties in Abbeymeads: Local Authority Search, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environmental and, depending on certain criteria, less common searches such as Commons Registration Search.

Q.

How much is the council tax on a Thirties terraced property in Abbeymeads?

A.

Commonly, the conveyancer's title report will include the relevant Swindon council tax band.
