Q.

There are lots of 'cheap' offers, but how do we find a good one? I am looking for affordable conveyancing.

A.

Numerous property lawyers advertise supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra costs may be added into the solicitor's terms. Extra charges found in the terms needs to be clearly defined. They only apply to matters if the solicitor is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction , 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.

I am purchasing a Brighouse house with Lloyds TSB - what will I need to be aware of?

A.

Recently, a number of lenders have limited the firms who can act for them, potentially creating greater legal costs for property purchasers. Homeward Legal are able to act on behalf of all major lenders so that you will not be required to pay any additional legal fees to your lender's solicitor.

Q.

Brighouse conveyancers conduct a variety of searches when acting for a property buyer,, but which particular ones?

A.

If you are obtaining a mortgage, your lender expects a specified set of searches, including the following Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW) and Environmental, and possibly less common searches, which may include a Chancel Repair Liability Search.

Q.

Which environmental factors can contaminate land in Brighouse. Are these checked for thoroughly?

Property in Brighouse can be contaminated by a wide range of human activities, like existing and proposed overhead electricity cables. An environmental search will reveal this in more detail. Hill Crest Quarry, Halifax Road, West Yorkshire, HD6 2QJ is one such potential cause of local contamination.

Q.

How early should I speak to a conveyancing solicitor to handle our transaction?

A.

With few exceptions, the earlier, the better, as there are several tasks that can begin immediately. Early instruction of a conveyancing firm to act on your Brighouse sale or purchase for a sale can mean that paperwork can be prepared, even before a buyer is found, whereas if you are buying you can shave days off the process by having the details of your instructed solicitor ready when you make an offer.

Q.

What are fixtures and fittings?

A.

Commonly, fixtures are fixed to walls and other surfaces and fixtures are free-standing items, such as a washing machine. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.

Q.

Q.

What kind of flood plain searches into the uncertain risk of a flood in the Yorkshire, West Riding area will my Brighouse conveyancing solicitor be able to conduct?
