Q.

How do we find a cheap solicitor in Addlestone to sell a flat?

A.

The confusion over this matter catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many firms promote 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often extra charges may inflate your final bill. Extra fees needs to be clearly defined.

Q.

For a fast conveyancing transaction on the purchase of a £687,000 house, how can we speed things up?

A.

Crucial to faster conveyancing is to instruct a proactive, diligent solicitor. When finding a suitable a solicitor, consider these questions: What methods of communication do they use? Posting documents can adds days of waiting to a purchase. Do they order searches immediately? Was there a delay delivering a quote?

Q.

What average time should it take my designated solicitor to handle the conveyancing work on a maisonette in a Regency building?

A.

Getting contracts exchanged can take anywhere between a month and 12 weeks, which can be hampered by various issues e.g. the speed of the seller's conveyancer, or the time taken to get a mortgage offer.

Our proactive property lawyers are extremely focused on speed and communication and endeavour towards completing as soon as we possibly can.

Q.

Myself and my partner are buying in Addlestone. Can we find out whether the property is in a conservation area?

A.

These areas pinpoint local areas of historical or architectural value. Your conveyancing solicitor will offer more information and discuss the relevant responsibilities.

Q.

Of main Addlestone lenders, who have joined your panel?

A.

Homeward Legal have solicitors experienced in conjunction with most lenders. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Addlestone, including Mortgage & Protection Advice Centre, 154B Station Rd, Addlestone, KT15 2BD.

Q.

Would getting a survey be required if we are purchasing a property?

A.

It is strongly suggested that buyers book a home surveyor to perform a survey. Buyers should be aware that there are a wide range of defects which have a negative impact on a property, that a solicitor will be unable to address. These include cracked roof tiles and cavity wall tie failure.

Q.

We have taken out a quote from you. Could there be any extra costs?

A.

No. Homeward Legal never hide any extra, hidden fees whatsoever. Buyers and sellers should be aware that some conveyancers give 'quotes' which are in fact estimates, meaning that you could pay much more when you complete.

Q.

Will the lawyer in Addlestone report back to me about the amount of council tax to be paid for a Band F cottage before completing on the purchase?

A.

Your property lawyer will speak to the council to ask about the latest council tax band and rates, which will be written in the conveyancing report on title. The latest council tax rates for residents of Addlestone are set out in detail on the Spelthorne local authority website. Currently (04 February 2013) rates for all bands are:

  • Band A - £1,017.00
  • Band B - £1,186.00
  • Band C - £1,356.00
