Q.

How do I find the best rates for conveyancing for a £120,000 house?

A.

Q.

Flood searches are determined from past data and when you factor in recent weather changes such as the major flooding in the UK in April 2012, are they comfort enough to advise me enough about the Billericay risk of flooding?

A.

Flood searches conducted by the Billericay property lawyer will include the more rigorous search (Landmark) if the risk is deemed significant.

If you are still apprehensive you might make enquiries with a neighbour of the property.

Q.

The property seller has unfortunately added PVC windows on the house in Billericay which I think may break nearby conservation area rules

A.

The property solicitor to check if the property is affected by a designated conservation area, and if so, whether any modifications have the necessary consents.

Q.

When we are buying a apartment on the same street as an ecclesiastical parish in Billericay, will we need to get a chancel search?

The result of a court case between a parish council and owners of neighbouring farmland liable for church repairs reaffirmed that 'lay rectors' of property must fund church repairs. Terms used in a property's name, like 'vicarage', may indicate chancel liability. A conveyancing lawyer will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary, and recommend suitable insurance. Church properties in the local area where a chancel search may be necessary include Christ Church, Emmanuel, Outwood Common St John the Divine and Ramsden Crays All Saints Worship Centre.

Q.

For a fast conveyancing process on the purchase of a £538k property, what should we do?

A.

Primarily, finding a communicative conveyancing solicitor is key moving faster. There are various jobs you as the purchaser could do to speed up the legal work. These include:

  • arranging your mortgage offer
  • calling or emailing the conveyancing solicitor, and chase them if you suspect any delays
  • quickly completing and return any forms

Q.

I want to exchange on the legal work on my property in under 30 days, are Homeward Legal really fast solicitors in Billericay ?

A.

Homeward Legal adopts a highly efficient modus operandi to completing the conveyancing as fast as possible. Our lawyers approach is different as we use leading edge HMRC and Land Registry integrated systems . Crucially , we always give you a home moving lawyer incentivised to communicate throughout the home buyer and seller chain .

Q.

Does my conveyancer in Billericay get any searches on the Essex thirties semi-detached cottage I am buying?

A.

The common legal protocol will be to get Local Authority, Drainage Search (Con29DW or personal) and Environmental and occasionally area-specific searches for example Official Search of Part with Priority (OS2).

Q.

How do we avoid being gazumped?

A.

This describes circumstances where a owner agrees to the first purchaser's offer and then dismisses it in favour of a higher offer. This may happen weeks into a transaction. Though being gazumped is uncommon when property prices are falling, there is still a danger. Consider instructing a proactive solicitor as soon as possible to reduce the chance of your offer being gazumped.
