Q.

We need to find a discount conveyancing estimate. How do I get a quote?

A.

Many buyers seeking discount conveyancing are caught out by the lure of very low conveyancing rates, and many firms purport to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately additional costs will be included in the small print. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Is Homeward Legal experienced enough to act quickly on the legal conveyancing of auction properties in Booker?

A.

The legal team work closely with auctioneers and commonly carry out work for buyers at auction. It is sensible for buyers to appoint their chosen conveyancing company asap so there is time for a thorough review of the legal pack prior to the day of bidding.

Post auction day your chosen lawyer is completely able to concentrate on quickly finishing the conveyancing in the usual 28 days as typically required .

Q.

Having read about the extensive flooding in the UK in April 2012 I am anxious that flood searches won't be sufficient?

A.

Environmental searches carried out by a Booker conveyancing solicitor will include the far more thorough search (Landmark) if the risk warrants it.

If you are still concerned you can visit a local resident.

Q.

What are searches?

A.

Conveyancing searches are common pack of queries raised by the property lawyer, such as a chancel liability search. These are unrelated to a building survey and will not give information on the physical condition of the property.

Q.

What factors can impact land in Booker, and are they properly investigated?

A.

Numerous of contaminants may impair Booker property, and an environmental search should reveal whether a property is impacted by local contaminants including civil aviation activity in the area or waste treatment sites in the area. Contamination can be caused by local waste sites, including E J Churchill Group Ltd, Park Lane, Buckinghamshire, HP14 3NS.

Q.

Do you work with lenders with offices in Booker?

A.

Most lenders in Booker are on our Booker solicitors' panel. Lenders and mortgage specialists in Booker include Centaur Associates, Acorn House/Straight Bit, Flackwell Heath, High Wycombe, HP10 9LS, Home Counties Mortgage Services, Eskdale/The Common, Holmer Green, High Wycombe, HP15 6TD, and Selvey Gerald, Wellington House/Lower Icknield Way, Longwick, Princes Risborough, HP27 9RZ. The Booker solicitor handling the work for your sale or purchase will be able to address any specific requests your lender may have.

Q.

Is there a risk that our purchase will be gazumped?

A.

Gazumping happens when a seller acknowledges an offer, only to later reject it in favour of a second buyer's offer. There is almost always a risk of gazumping. You should instruct a solicitor as early as possible to reduce the chance of your transaction being gazumped.

Q.

Our lender will be Ulster Bank, is there anything we need to check?

A.

House buyers should be aware that, recently, a number of lenders are now reducing the size of their 'solicitor panel', which may result in increased conveyancing costs for home buyers. Homeward Legal can act for most mortgage lenders, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.
