Q.

I am trying to find the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Bridport. What is included?

A.

The confusion over this point catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many law firms purport to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. However additional costs may be added into the small print. Any charges which are listed in terms of engagement should be fair and clearly defined. Applicable disbursements ought to be listed on your quote. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

I am purchasing a Bridport property with Natwest - what do I need to be aware of?

A.

Until recently, solicitors could carry out mortgage-related work for most lenders. A small number of lenders have limited the firms who can act for them. This can mean increased legal costs for property purchasers. Homeward Legal are able to act for most mortgage lenders, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

Doing ones own conveyancing without the help of a solicitor in Bridport looks to be possible as a seller of a maisonette , however would it be practicable ?

A.

Theoretically speaking there are no arguments why a buyer shouldn't complete the conveyancing unaided.

The truth is however that a conveyancing solicitor in Bridport typically handles a huge array of activities e.g. drafting contracts and applying for searches many of which need a qualified solicitor. Despite that legal practices are legally obligated to carry sufficient insurance to protect you from any professional failures on the part of the solicitor.

Q.

Which parts of Bridport are secured by a conservation area?

There are a range of conservation areas in or near Bridport. The council will be able to offer more information about local conservation areas, and the property solicitor handling your purchase should discuss what specific restrictions are in place.

Q.

We have a found a freehold property to buy. How do we organise a fast exchange and completion?

A.

It is well established that contacting a proactive, diligent solicitor is essential to fast conveyancing. Ask these questions when identifying your conveyancer:

  • Do they use email as the preferred mode of communication?
  • Do they offer 'instant' online quotes?
  • Will they work on a 'no sale, no fee' basis?

Q.

What type of local authority searches in respect to the risk of floods to properties in Dorset will a property lawyer in Bridport actually do for an investment property we intend to purchase?

A.

A qualified lawyer will carry out property conveyancing searches that incorporate Bridport historical flood risk data. A more detailed flood search (e.g Homecheck) will often be proposed by the conveyancer in Bridport if in the event that the initial conveyancing searches indicate a potential flood risk to the investment flat.

Q.

We are intending to buy a unique flat in a designated Bridport conservation area. How do we locate more data relating to the state of upkeep?

A.

Conservation areas in Bridport are designated by the local West Dorset planning authority, who manage things like street furniture to the avoidance of traffic signs. Following a campaign, English Heritage have produced a list of the condition of conservation areas in Bridport and throughout England.

Q.

Our estate agent in Holmrook has referred a law firm whom they usually use. Must we use this firm?

A.

If you opt for a solicitor referred this way, you may have the advantage of the agent being able to exert pressure on your behalf. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, the agent may recommend the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the law firm with the best reputation.
