Q.

I need an affordable Ashford Kent conveyancing estimate. What do I need to check for?

A.

Many firms claim to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing, but extra costs are frequently hidden in the small print. This small print is often not read by buyers and sellers in a hurry. Extra fees ought to be fair and reasonable. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.

When in the conveyancing process do we need to speak to a conveyancer?

A.

If you use a conveyancing firm offering a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, the earlier, the better. The legal work can then start very early in the process. Early instruction of a solicitor for a purchase allows you can shave days off the process by having the details of your instructed solicitor ready when you make an offer, or, if you are selling a property, documents can be prepared earlier, considerably accelerating the whole process.

Q.

Barclays Bank will be our lender - what will I need to know?

A.

When organising a mortgage, legal work must be undertaken in relation to the mortgage. Purchasers should know that some lenders are now limiting the firms who can act

for them, which may result in higher conveyancing costs for property buyers. Homeward Legal, however, can act for many lenders in the UK so that you will not be required to pay legal fees for your lender's solicitor.

Q.

The estate agent we are using in Oakley has referred a solicitors firm. Is it a good idea to instruct this firm?

A.

Your Oakley agent will often refer a conveyancing solicitor. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, there is a risk that an agent may choose the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.

Q.

How long on average does it take my designated conveyancing solicitor to conclude the legal formalities on a terraced building?

A.

It can take anywhere between one month and three months, contingent on various things for example the speed of the vendor's conveyancer, or whether the property is leasehold, Freehold or share of freehold.

Our conveyancers are very proactive you moving home in as little time as possible.

Q.

What is gazumping?

A.

This describes circumstances where a seller agrees to an offer, then dismisses it, choosing instead a higher offer. There is almost always a danger of gazumping. Instructing a property solicitor as soon as you can to handle your transaction should help to reduce the likelihood of gazumping.

Q.

Which zones of Ashford Kent are protected by a conservation area?

A.

The streets and neighbourhoods in or near Ashford Kent will include several conservation areas. You may wish to contact the council for more detail, but your lawyer will investigate this in detail during the conveyancing process.

Q.

How does conveyancing for a sale be so drawn out?

A.

Conveyancing may be delayed, we, however, work hard to reduce the cost of these delays wherever feasible by, for example, ordering searches as early as possible. There are numerous reasons for delay, such as slow solicitors acting for the other side.
