Q.

How do I find fixed rate conveyancing?

A.

Confusion over this matter catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many solicitors promote 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately additional charges are often hiding in the small print. These terms are often ignored by excited homeowners, eager to get underway. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Might our property legal fees include any supplementary hidden charges?

A.

No. Homeward Legal do not charge any extra, hidden costs for sale or purchase conveyancing. A Homeward Legal conveyancing quote is an honest and accurate price.

Q.

How long on average does it take my assigned conveyancer to carry out the legal work for a semi detached Thirties home we hope to buy?

A.

Completion can take anywhere between 1 month and three months dependent on various things, such as the efficiency of the vendor's property solicitor, or the completeness of the management information.

Our solicitors are exceptionally focused on speed and communication you moving home as speedily as possible.

We are buying in Benfleet. How can we establish whether the house is in a designated conservation area?

Areas considered to be of historical or architectural value, like 19th century suburbs, may be designated as conservation areas. You may wish to contact the local authority for more information, but your lawyer will investigate this in detail.

Q.

Will the Benfleet solicitor tell me about the cost of council tax for a Band D maisonette before completion?

A.

Your property solicitor will approach the council to reveal the applicable council tax band and rates, which should be written in the title report.

Q.

Do you have fast solicitors that carry out the conveyancing of residential property auction properties in Benfleet?

A.

Our solicitors and licensed conveyancers in Benfleet commonly handle the legal work for bidders at auction. Conveyancers tend to inform buyers to instruct a residential lawyer prior to the auction so there is time for a full review. After the property auction date your instructed lawyer is wholly able to concentrate on completing the purchase inside the usual 28 days as conventionally required .

Q.

Having read about the fact that 2012 was second wettest year since on record, I am worried that conveyancing searches (environmental) may not be detailed enough?

A.

A thorough Benfleet lawyer will suggest that you get detailed environmental searches if the first searches determine a Benfleet flood risk.
