Q.

I need a low cost conveyancing quote in Alton. What do I need to check for?

A.

Confusion over this matter catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors claim to offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing', but extra costs will be included in the terms. Busy, stressed homeowners ignore these terms at their peril. Additional costs which are listed in terms of engagement should be reasonable and only apply to matters if your conveyancer is required to complete unexpected extra work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

May the fees for our conveyancing include any hidden costs?

A.

No. We do not charge any hidden costs to buy or sell a home.

Q.

What average time does it take my designated conveyancing solicitor to conclude the conveyancing formalities on the top floor of period property we are intending to buy?

A.

The conveyancing process can take anywhere from 1 month to three months, which can be hampered by any number of things, like the efficiency of the vendors lawyer, or whether the property is leasehold, Freehold or share of freehold. Homeward Legal's lawyers are exceptionally proactive completing as quickly as realistically possible.

Q.

Do homewardlegal.co.uk advise on the conveyancing for residential property auction properties in Alton?

A.

All of our property conveyancers often work for sellers at auction. Our solicitors have in the past been instructed by countless buyers at local Alton auctions including Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London, Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.

Experienced bidders tend to get a local lawyer as quickly as they can to allow for an investigation of the documents well before the day of bidding.

Following the property auction your instructed lawyer is fully able to concentrate on completing the legal work in the limited time as usually required by the conditions of sale.

Q.

Is the HS2 line going to affect Aylesbury Vale District homes?

A.

Yes, Phase 1 of HS2 will be an issue in a number of homes in Aylesbury's local authority. Aylesbury Properties within 200m of the line will be identified during a search, but disruption, noise and vibration pollution may affect a much wider area.

Q.

Halifax will be our mortgage lender, what do we need to consider?

A.

Recently, a number of lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel. For purchasers, this can result in significantly higher conveyancing costs. We can act for most lenders so that the buyer will not have to pay your lender's legal costs.

Q.

Does Alton include any designated conservation areas?

A.

Conservation areas pinpoint streets and neighbourhoods recorded as being of architectural or historic interest. Living in a conservation area can mean an increase in local property values, but the restrictions adds to upkeep costs. A solicitor will discuss the relevant responsibilities you would be taking on by purchasing in a conservation area.

Q.

We are planning to buy a newly-constructed home. Is it that necessary that 'conveyancing searches' are undertaken?

A.

Searches are a typical set of enquiries ordered by your property lawyer. These do not relate to defects such as chimney defects.
