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.

When should you find a solicitor to handle our transaction?

A.

In the vast majority of cases, the sooner you instruct a solicitor, the better. Instructing your solicitor earlier can reduce any chance of your sale or purchase falling though.

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.

Q.

I am buying a house. Is it that important that property searches are undertaken?

Searches are questions ordered in the interest of the purchaser. Searches do not relate to defects such as poor ventilation.

Q.

There is a lot of free information about conveyancing as a buyer of a flat , Might it be a silly move to do the DIY conveyancing without any help?

A.

Theoretically speaking there is no reason why a buyer cant adopt a DIY approach and handle the greater majority of the legal process unaided.

That said, a conveyancing solicitor juggles a huge array of functions such as chasing replies to enquiries or interpreting management accounts many of which are better done by someone with a skilled professional.

Q.

How long does it take our lawyer to finish the legal formalities on the top floor of sixties house in Ashtead?

A.

The legal process can take anywhere from a month to 3 months depending on various issues e.g. the speed of the seller's property lawyer, or the speed of the local authority. Our proactive property lawyers are extremely focused on communication work towards exchanging as soon as we possibly can.

Q.

Do you have good solicitors that conduct the conveyancing for residential property auction properties in Ashtead?

A.

Our property lawyers regularly take instructions from auction buyers and sellers. We often inform auction buyers to formally appoint a SRA regulated lawyer prior to the auction day to allow for a title report of the auction legal papers.

Subsequently, immediately after the auction day your conveyancing lawyer is completely geared up to finishing the conveyancing in the limited time frame as required .

Q.

What sort of additional enquiries in respect to the risk of a flood in the Surrey region will a Ashtead property solicitor check out?

A.

A necessary part of the conveyancing protocol involves the conveyancing lawyer carrying out environmental searches that set out details with respect to Ashtead flood risk. An inexpensive (around twenty pounds) and more specialist flood history/risk search (most likely a Landmark Database search) will sometimes be recommended by your Ashtead conveyancing solicitor if in the event that the initial searches highlight a flood risk.
