Q.

We need a fixed rate conveyancing estimate, we are on a tight budget.

A.

Numerous law firms promote cheap conveyancing quotes. Often extra costs are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms. Our online calculator will create an accurate quote for your buy.

Q.

Our estate agent has named the firm of solicitors which they often use. Do I need to instruct this firm?

A.

It is common for agents in Edgware to recommend a conveyancing solicitor. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, an agent may select the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.

Q.

I am aiming to purchase a home, is it important that conveyancing searches are undertaken?

A.

These searches are an accepted set of questions ordered by the conveyancing solicitor through local and national authorities, such as a brine search. These searches refer to the legal aspects of the purchase.

Q.

Derbyshire Home Loans is going to be our lender, is there anything I need to check?

A.

Buyers should be aware that, over the last two years, some lenders are now reducing their 'solicitor panel', potentially creating higher legal costs for buyers. Homeward Legal, though, are able to act for all major UK mortgage lenders, ensuring that an additional property lawyer will not be required to act for your lender.

Q.

Are buyers often gazumped in Ascot?

A.

This occurs when a seller accepts the first purchaser's offer, only to reject it, opting for a second buyer's offer. It could happen only days prior to exchange. There is almost always a risk of gazumping. Instructing a property solicitor as early as possible to handle your transaction should help to reduce the likelihood of gazumping.

Q.

I am planning to buy in Ascot, and would like to verify that there are many conservation areas.

A.

Conservation areas specify neighbourhoods of historic or architectural significance. The advantages of these restrictions will include more aesthetically pleasant surroundings, but they can add to maintenance costs. Your solicitor will be able to advise further.

Q.

Which of the Ascot mortgage lender panels are you on?

A.

Of lenders with local offices in Ascot, we with many. Ascot lenders and mortgage specialists include Express Links, 26 Cherry Av, Slough, SL3 7BT, Slough Mortgage Advice Centre, 33 Bath Rd, Slough, SL1 3UF, and A H C, Cannon La, Maidenhead, SL6 3NT.

Q.

What type of flood plain searches into the risk of floods in Berkshire will my property lawyer in Ascot do?

A.

An essential part of the conveyancing protocol involves the lawyer applying for property environmental searches that set out specific information on the Ascot flood risk. A more thorough flood search (e.g. Landmark) may be advocated by your property lawyer in Ascot if in the event that the initial searches show flood risk to the property.
