Q.

Please confirm the cheapest fee for a £178,000 property? I am looking for low cost conveyancing.

A.

Many home owners seeking discount conveyancing are caught out by the lure of very low conveyancing rates, and many conveyancers claim to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing. Often additional costs may be added into the small print. Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

It seems that cadmium soil contamination may be an issue in Ashtead. Please advise.

A.

Ashtead's local area has a history of contamination from industrial or agricultural, like much of the UK. Data on many contaminants, such as groundwater contaminants like hydrocarbons, will be included in an environmental search.

Q.

Leeds Building Society is going to be our mortgage lender - what will we need to check?

A.

Buyers should be aware that, over the last two years, some lenders have limited the firms who can act for them. This can mean higher legal costs for property purchasers. Homeward Legal, fortunately, will act for most lenders.

Q.

Do we need a house survey for our house purchase?

A.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors firmly suggest that you instruct a property surveyor if buying in Ashtead. A wide range of defects will impact a property, for example blocked drains. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.

Q.

I have requested a quote from you. Will we have to pay any extra fees?

A.

It is unfortunate that it is common practice for some firms to hide fees in small print. Homeward Legal will not charge any hidden extra costs. Know that some conveyancers give 'quotes' which are in fact estimates. The final bill you receive may be much more.

Q.

Conveyancers in Ashtead order some searches when instructed by a home buyer, but which specific searches?

A.

When you are getting a mortgage the lender expects specific searches, including the following Local Authority (council), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW) and Environmental, and, depending on certain criteria, unique particular for example Official Search of Part with Priority (OS2).

Q.

We are buying in Ashtead. Are there many areas of conservation in the area?

A.

Conservation areas define neighbourhoods of historical or architectural value. A conveyancing solicitor will discuss the relevant responsibilities and be able to provide more details for conservation areas in Ashtead.

Q.

What does conveyancing searches cost?

A.

With a Homeward Legal solicitor, you are charged at a maximum £249 for a standard bundle of searches. Conveyancing searches are charged at cost.
