Q.

How do we get the best conveyancing rates for a £457,000 property?

A.

Many solicitors advertise so-called cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra charges are often hiding in the terms of engagement which buyers and sellers may have not read carefully The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.

Do you have good solicitors that handle residential property auction conveyancing in Alford?

A.

Homeward Legal frequently handle the legal work for buyers and sellers at auction. We usually tell buyers at auction to choose a SRA regulated lawyer before the auction day for a full investigation of the legal documents. Following the date of the auction your chosen lawyer is fully focused on finishing the conveyancing within the limited time frame as required .

Q.

What length of time will it take our assigned solicitor to carry out all of the conveyancing work on a detached Regency property we are purchasing in Alford?

A.

The process can take anywhere from 1 month to 12 weeks, which can depend on a number of factors like the speed of the seller's conveyancing solicitor, or the time taken getting replies to enquiries.

Our highly conveyancing solicitors are very focused on speed and communication work towards completing the legal process in as little time as realistically possible.

Q.

What can a Alford property lawyer recommend if the flat we are buying is inside the boundary of a East Lindsey conservation area which has conspicuous roof aerials added?

A.

The local authority searches conducted by a property lawyer as part of the conveyancing will see if the property is within a conservation area and any evidence of authorisation for alterations will be requested.

Q.

Would arranging a property survey be sensible when buying any property in Alford?

A.

Homeward Legal advise that the majority of buyers instruct a property surveyor. There are a wide range of issues which can affect a property, such as wet rot and failed double glazing. Such issues will not be considered during the conveyancing work itself.

Q.

How will a conveyancing solicitor in Alford report on the risk of floods to properties in Alford?

A.

A necessary component in the legal due diligence process of buying a property involves your conveyancing solicitor carrying out property conveyancing searches that set out detail on the Alford flood risk area. A more detailed search (e.g Homecheck) will often be advocated by a qualified Alford conveyancing solicitor if in the event that the initial searches show a risk of flooding.
