Q.

How do I get the best rates for conveyancing for a 430,000 property?

A.

Many law firms claim to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra fees may inflate the final invoice. Any additional fees should be reasonable. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.

Do we need a Homebuyer Report for our home purchase in Aston?

A.

It is highly recommended that home buyers in Aston arrange a home surveyor when you intend to buy in Aston. A range problems can negatively affect a property, for example wet rot and cracks around door frames. Such issues will not be considered during the conveyancing work itself.

Q.

Conveyancing solicitors in Aston conduct some conveyancing searches when instructed to act for a home purchase client - what particular searches?

A.

If you are getting a mortgage, your lender expects at least the following Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search

(CON29DW) and Environment Search,, and possibly less common searches, which may include a British Waterways.

Q.

Which lender panels in Aston are you on?

A.

Most lenders in Aston are on our panels. Aston lenders and mortgage specialists include Mortgage Options, 25 Brinsworth Lane, Brinsworth, Rotherham, S60 5BS, Lifestyle Mortgage Centre, Lifestyle House/157-163 Sheffield Rd, Killamarsh, Sheffield, S21 1DY, and Sherwood Financial Solutions, The Turbine/Coach Cl, Shireoaks, Worksop, S81 8AP.

Q.

How can we verify that a property is in a conservation area?

A.

These areas secure neighbourhoods of special architectural or historic interest. Living in a conservation area can mean protection for parks and green spaces, but the restrictions create additional maintenance and repair responsibilities. A solicitor will discuss what specific restrictions are in place.

Q.

How soon should you get a solicitor?

A.

Generally, instructing as early as possible is better, as the legal work can commence straight away. Prompt instruction of a firm for a sale may mean that paperwork can be prepared, even before a buyer is found, whereas if you are buying your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed.

Q.

What is the risk of gazumping?

A.

Gazumping takes place when a purchaser's offer is rejected, following initial acceptance, by the seller, selecting instead a greater offer. Because acceptance of an offer is not binding on the seller until exchange of contracts, there is a risk of being gazumped. Consider instructing a proactive solicitor early to reduce the chance of your offer being gazumped.

Q.

Which factors will contaminate land in Aston. Are these checked for thoroughly?

A.

A range of contaminants caused by natural causes has the potential to affect residential property in Aston . Contaminants including other land contamination or landfill sites should be reported on during conveyancing searches.
