Q.

We need a cheap solicitor quote for selling a freehold home, we are on a tight budget.

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this matter catches out many property buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many firms promote supposedly cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately additional fees can inflate the final bill. Any fees included in the solicitor's terms needs to be fair and only come into force where your conveyancer is required to complete unexpected extra work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

Q.

I am selling in Burton Latimer, and have had a quote from you. Could we have to pay any hidden charges when the transaction completes?

A.

Homeward Legal will never charge any hidden extra costs for any reason. Some conveyancers give 'quotes' which are in fact estimates. You may face a much greater total fee when you have completed.

Q.

Burton Latimer property solicitors apply for some property conveyancing searches when acting for a purchaser, but which actual ones?

If purchasing and applying for a mortgage, your lender requires you to at least specific searches, including the following Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search (Con29DW) and Environment Search, and possibly specific local searches such as Land charge Search (bankruptcy only).

Q.

What due diligence in relation to the risk of flooding at Northamptonshire will a Burton Latimer conveyancer look into?

A.

A necessary step in the conveyancing process of purchasing a property involves a solicitor carrying out environmental searches that give certain details about the Burton Latimer area flood risk.

Q.

Our agent has put forward a property solicitor. Should we use this firm?

A.

Estate agent referrals are a commonplace route to find a solicitor, however, these referrals must be carefully considered, as the agent may recommend the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

Could arsenic (As) contaminate land in Burton Latimer?

A.

Government policy is in place to control pollution, waste, water and chemical contamination. The local authority for Burton Latimer will be able to provide more detail on cases of contamination.

Q.

Santander will be our mortgage lender, what do we need to be aware of?

A.

Some lenders have reduced the number of firms able to act for them. We are able to act for the vast majority of lenders, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

The internet is full of many manuals going into great depth on do it yourself conveyancing such as Conveyancing Handbook by Frances Silverman . In which case, do I need to use a Burton Latimer lawyer ?

A.

On paper there is no argument why you shouldn't complete the legal process without assistance.

The truth is however that a solicitor typically handles a huge number of functions e.g. chasing any missing replies/clarifications to enquiries or checking for any restrictive covenants which need a skilled professional.
