Q.

How do I find affordable conveyancing?

A.

Numerous solicitors purport to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. However additional costs are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Any disbursements must also be stated on the conveyancing quote. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

As a result of the serious flooding in the UK in April 2012 I am worried that flood risk searches aren't thorough enough?

A.

Conveyancing searches (environmental) applied for by your Banstead conveyancer will include the far more detailed Landmark flood search if the risk is deemed significant.

If you are concerned you could attempt to contact a neighbour of the property.

Q.

What sort of local conveyancing searches in relation to the potential risk of floods in the Surrey region will the conveyancing solicitor in Banstead actually apply for?

A.

A crucial component in the conveyancing protocol involves a conveyancer carrying out conveyancing searches that offer details with regard to Banstead flood risk. A more specialist flood

search, for instance the Landmark search, might be proposed by your lawyer in Banstead if the results of the initial searches suggest a potential flood risk to the property.

Q.

How much can the charges for searches come to?

A.

Conveyancing searches ranges in cost, and will be dependent on your lender's requirements. Searches are disbursements, and will not be included in a solicitor's fees.

Q.

Will the title report prepared by the Banstead property solicitor investigate the cost of council tax on an apartment prior to exchanging contracts?

A.

A property lawyer will liaise with the local authority to enquire about the latest council tax charges which will subsequently be written in the report on title. Up-to-date rates for properties in Banstead are detailed on the council site.

Q.

When buying a period maisonette in the boundary of conservation area in Banstead, how do we find more data in regards to the state of repair of the Banstead conservation area?

A.

English Heritage, a government body, have assembled a list of the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas. Conservation areas are created by the local authority (Reigate and Banstead) who administer things like the upkeep of public spaces to the halting of advertising hoardings.

Q.

Do your lawyers carry out the conveyancing of auction properties in Banstead?

A.

Our CQS solicitors regularly work for auction buyers and sellers. We invariably advocate buyers at auction to formally instruct an experienced conveyancing company before the property auction to allow enough time for a detailed investigation of the lot.

Immediately following the day of bidding your Homeward Legal conveyancing solicitor is thoroughly ready for completing the transaction in 4 weeks as typically required .

Q.

We are purchasing in Banstead. Are there any conservation areas in the area?

A.

With over eight thousand affected areas in England, the regions in or near Banstead will include a range of areas of conservation. The local authority will offer more information about local areas of conservation, and the lawyer handling your purchase address the consequences of purchasing property in a conservation area.
