Conveyancing In Ash Q & A's
What are the benefits of an online solicitor against a high street firm?
Many commentators and bloggers have suggested that you get so much more from online conveyancers because they have access to state-of-the-art applications to manage their cases and use the latest communication technology.
However, there is nothing stopping high street conveyancing firms from adopting such technology. And they will have a wealth of experience and knowledge of the local area that they can bring to bear on your transaction.
It all comes down to what they offer and how they go about their business. You should get a selection of quotes and read through the terms and conditions in detail to understand the comparisons between what they offer and how much they are going to charge you for the service.

The home I’m buying has been empty for two years; what questions should I be asking the solicitor, the estate agent, and the surveyor?
If a home has been empty for a considerable period (such as the two years mentioned here), there’s usually a reason for it. There is estimated to be around a quarter of a million properties in the country that have been empty for more than 6 months.
The primary reason is that the owner hasn’t the funds to renovate the property, or they’ve started gutting the place and run out of money to take it further, or perhaps there’s been a significant problem (e.g. fire or flood are common instances). Most likely, these properties will come up at auction.
Your estate agent will be aware of its history if the property is on their books, so you can find out a lot from them, the council will have an empty property officer, and the Land Registry will have information on the deeds. As far as the solicitor is concerned, they will establish the position on the property as part of the conveyancing, while the surveyor will have experience of checking out such properties, with the advice that you order a Building Survey (the most detailed of the options) to check out its structural integrity. Note that mortgage lenders will be more reluctant to offer a loan on such homes.
Ultimately, the ball is in your court and, if you want to pursue buying such a property, you need to be prepared to do the research, which can take up a lot of time.
The moving process can be bewildering and stressful. Let Homeward Legal look after the legal side of things for you and we'll guide you through the process from start to end. Call 0800 038 6699 to find out more.
Our mortgage lender will be Aldermore, what do I need to check?
