Q.

How do I find a cheap solicitor in Axminster for purchasing a new build home?

A.

Various conveyancers offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing'. However extra charges may be added into small print. Busy, stressed buyers ignore these terms at their peril. A quote should state the disbursements to be paid. Any extra costs should be fair. They be applicable if your lawyer is required to complete extra work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

Is a building survey necessary when buying residential property?

A.

It is suggested that home buyers arrange a property surveyor to carry out a survey. Buyers should be aware that there are a range of problems that can affect a property, such as flat roof leaks and rotten roof timbers. Such issues will not be considered during the conveyancing work itself.

Q.

We need to know which Axminster lenders your lawyers are able to work with. Whose panels are your solicitors on?

Of lenders with branches around Axminster, Homeward Legal work with the bulk of them. Local mortgage lenders and brokers include Manchester Building Society, Trinity Sq, Axminster, EX13 5AW.

Q.

I have read about handling the legal work when buying a flat - Is it imprudent to enact the legal side without help.?

A.

Hypothetically there are no arguments why a home buyer shouldn't carry out the conveyancing on your own. The truth is however that a conveyancing solicitor carries out a large array of tasks such as checking contracts or apportioning service charges many of which need a qualified professional.

Q.

How much can our searches be?

A.

Searches in Axminster ranges in cost, depending on the particular searches ordered. Searches are disbursements paid to a third party, and are not included in the quoted conveyancing fees.

Q.

How can my Axminster property lawyer report on the potential risk of floods to properties in Axminster?

A.

A necessary part of the conveyancing protocol of purchasing a property involves a conveyancing solicitor applying for environmental searches that provide you with details about the potential risk of flooding in Axminster.

Q.

Our agent has suggested the lawyer that they have used before. Is it advisable to instruct this solicitor?

A.

Agent referrals are a commonplace way to find a solicitor, however, these referrals should be compared to other online or local firms, as some agents may 'recommend' the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.

Q.

Which local authority looks after Axminster?

A.

Axminster is located in East Devon District Council, Council Offices, Knowle, Sidmouth, Devon, EX10 8HL, phone: 01395 516 551
