Q.

How do I get the best rates for conveyancing in Blandfordum for a 719k property?

A.

Many solicitors offer 'the cheapest conveyancing', however extra fees will be included in small print, left unread by preoccupied buyers and sellers The quote should, in addition, define any disbursements to be paid. Any extra costs found in the terms should be fair and clearly defined. They come into force only if your lawyer must complete work beyond standard conveyancing , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.

Q.

Is your panel of solicitors geared up for 28 day completions on the conveyancing for residential property auction properties in Blandfordum?

A.

Our team work with auctioneers throughout Dorset and regularly take instructions from bidders at auction. It is highly recommended for auction buyers to instruct a property lawyer as rapidly as they can so there is time for an investigation of the auction legal papers before the auction.

Thereafter, following the day of bidding your instructed conveyancing lawyer will be ready for completing the transaction within 4 weeks as conventionally required .

Q.

How can a solicitor in Blandfordum advise us on the risk of possible flooding at Blandfordum?

A critical step in the legal due diligence procedure involves your conveyancing lawyer applying for property conveyancing searches that provide you with details in relation to Blandfordum flood risk area.

Q.

Our lender is Dunfermline Building Society - is there anything we need to be aware of?

A.

Buyers should consider that some lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel', which may result in higher legal costs for purchasers. Homeward Legal are able to act on behalf of the vast majority of mortgage lenders.

Q.

We plan to buy a residence in Dorchester All Saints. Will a chancel search be required?

A.

A solicitor might recommend a chancel search, whichever parish in which the building being purchased is found. Through some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have determined to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of land subject to chancel liability, a conveyancing solicitor cannot verify that a parish which has not imposed liability will not continue to be so. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

Might our property legal fees take into account any hidden charges?

A.

No. Homeward Legal's solicitors never hide any hidden charges. Some websites offer unrealistically low 'quotes' which are in fact estimates, meaning that you could pay much more when you complete.

Q.

If you are purchasing a property on the same road as a rectory in Blandfordum, is it necessary that I get a chancel search?

A.

Property owners in Blandfordum may be subject to chancel repair liability. Several sources are used to determine liability in Blandfordum, including maps of Blandfordum's parish boundaries.

Q.

When do we need to instruct a solicitor in Blandfordum?

A.

Whether you are buying or selling in Blandfordum, the sooner the better, as conveyancing involves several tasks that may be performed immediately. Some authors suggest waiting before instruction until an offer is accepted, but you will then be at a serious disadvantage in the event of a contract race, or buyer eager to move quickly.
