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.

Handling the legal work by bypassing a Banstead conveyancing solicitor looks to be possible as a buyer of a maisonette , but would it be actually be reasonable ?

A.

There are no arguments at all why you cant handle the conveyancing unaided. That said, a property solicitor takes care of a large array

of exercises including applying for and interpreting office copies or checking for any restrictive covenants which need a qualified professional. Additionally solicitors are required by the Law Society to carry relevant insurance cover that ultimately protects you from any professional negligence made by the lawyer.

Q.

We have taken out a quote from you. Could I have to pay any hidden fees when the move completes?

A.

No. Homeward Legal's solicitors do not charge any hidden extra charges under any circumstances. Some websites offer unrealistically low 'quotes' which are in fact estimates. The final bill you receive may be much more.

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.

We are intending to be moving from our detached home near Banstead to our new flat in Bagshot . What is the optimum stage to select a removal company?
