Q.

Please confirm the cheapest fee for a £87,000 residence? I need low cost conveyancing.

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many buyers paying out more than they anticipated in the end. Many law firms purport to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately extra fees are frequently hidden in the terms, left unregarded by busy buyers The disbursements to be paid should also be clearly stated on the conveyancing quote. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.

How long on average should it take our assigned property lawyer to complete all of the legal formalities on the top floor of property?

A.

The process can take anywhere from 1 month to 12 weeks, based on any number of things e.g. the efficiency of the seller's conveyancing solicitor, or contentious issues that may arise. Our conveyancing solicitors are highly results driven with the intention of you moving home as quickly as possible.

Q.

Should we get a building surveyor to view the property we plan to buy?

A.

Homeward Legal strongly recommend that home buyers in Bakewell arrange a RICS surveyor to undertake a survey if buying in Bakewell. There are a wide range of problems which will impact a property, that a solicitor will be unable to address, such as cracks in walls and roof damage.

Q.

Conveyancing searches are surmised archived data but when one considers recent events such as the extensive flooding in Sept 2012 in the East Midlands, are they sufficient to see enough about the Bakewell area flood risk?

A.

Conveyancing searches carried out by a Bakewell lawyer will include the far more specialist flood search if required.

If you are nervous you could contact a neighbour of the property.

Q.

Do you recommend your solicitors to manage the conveyancing for residential property auction properties in Bakewell?

A.

Homeward Legal is highly knowledgeable with buyers and sellers at auction. Our auction team conveyancing lawyers have worked for numerous buyers at regional property auctions that include Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London, Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.

Sensible buyers at auction always choose a qualified lawyer as soon as possible to allow sufficient time for a detailed investigation of the documents before the auction day.

Immediately following the auction day itself your selected lawyer is totally focused on finishing the transaction within a as tight time frame as required .

Q.

I am planning to buy in Bakewell, do we need conveyancing searches?

A.

Searches are an accepted bundle of enquiries requested by your conveyancing lawyer through local and national agencies. These are not a substitute for a survey and are unable to address physical defects.

Q.

I am on a deadline and will need to ensure a fast conveyancing transaction, what can we do to accelerate the transaction?

A.

Contacting a proactive, diligent conveyancing solicitor is essential to fast Bakewell conveyancing. There are numerous things you, as the purchaser, could do to speed up the legal work, including, responding to your conveyancing solicitor by phone, fax or email wherever possible, organising your finances, including arranging a mortgage and keeping in regular contact with your conveyancing solicitor.

Q.

Is simultaneous exchange and completion a disbursement or fee?

A.

It is not always obvious whether a cost is a disbursement or fee. This cost is a fee not a disbursement. It should be included in a conveyancing quote.
