Q.

There are lots of 'cheap' offers, but how do we find a good one? We are looking for low cost conveyancing.

A.

Various property lawyers claim to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. Often extra charges will be included in the small print that unknowing property buyers and sellers have not reviewed Any additional fees included in terms of engagement should be fair. A quote must also state any disbursements.We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

Is Homeward Legal set up to handle fast completions on the conveyancing for residential property auction properties in Abbots Langley?

A.

Our team deal with auctions throughout the UK and commonly get instructed by buyers and sellers at auction. It is sensible auction buyers to formally instruct their lawyer as rapidly as they can to allow for an investigation of the legal papers for the lot well in advance of the date of the auction.

Post actual auction your experienced lawyer is absolutely focused on finishing the purchase in the reduced time frame as conventionally required by the auction conditions.

Q.

We are intending to buy a sixties property in a Abbots Langley conservation area, where does one find details on the standard of upkeep of the conservation area?

A.

Following a campaign, English Heritage have produced records of the state of repair of conservation areas. Local conservation areas are specified by Three Rivers who are responsible for conservation area concerns from upkeep of paths to the prevention of poorly maintained pavements.

Q.

May the conveyancing charges conceal any hidden charges?

A.

Homeward Legal will not charge any hidden fees to buy or sell a property.

Q.

Which environmental factors can affect land in Abbots Langley, and should they be a concern?

A.

Land may be contaminated by a range of natural and human-influenced issues, such as infilled land and shallow mining. An environmental search will offer more detail.

Q.

Our mortgage lender will be Bank of Scotland, is there anything we need to consider?

A.

Buyers should be aware that, recently, a number of lenders are now limiting the firms who can act for them, which may result in higher legal costs for buyers. We are able to act for many mortgage lenders to ensure that you will not need to pay legal costs to your lender's solicitor.

Q.

To complete on our property purchase ASAP, how can we organise a fast completion in Abbots Langley?

A.

Crucial to buying faster is to instruct a proactive solicitor. When choosing a solicitor, ask yourself the following: Are they 'no move, no fee'? This can incentivise a faster transaction. Was there a delay delivering a quote? Do they use email as the preferred mode of communication?

Q.

Will it be necessary to get a chancel search if I plan to buy in the parish of Meppershall?

A.

The conveyancing solicitor is likely to recommend that a chancel search be ordered. In Abbots Langley's much older areas, chancel repair dues can be collected on current owners of a property where church councils may have not done so in the past.
