Q.

How do I get a cheap solicitor to own property?

A.

This catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many conveyancers claim to offer cheap conveyancing. Often extra charges will be included in the terms which unwary buyers fail to check. Fees should be reasonable. They be applicable if the solicitor must complete work beyond standard conveyancing on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The online quote calculator can generate an accurate statement of the legal fees for the property you plan to buy.

Q.

Is a TT fee a fee or disbursement?

A.

Comparing quotes can be difficult, considering differences in terminology. This cost, for example, is a fee not a disbursement, and will usually be included in your conveyancing quote.

Q.

Will the conveyancing costs in Caerwent cover any additional charges?

A.

No. Our solicitors never hide any hidden extra fees whatsoever. A Homeward Legal quote is an single, accurate fee.

Q.

We are intending to buy a medieval barn conversion in Monmouth. Is a chancel search compulsory?

A.

Your conveyancing lawyer might recommend that a chancel search be taken out. Chancel repair dues can be collected on new owners of a property where church councils have previously chosen not to do so, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.

Q.

What can a Caerwent property solicitor advise if the house we hope to invest in is within a conservation area in Newport planning authority which has out of place roof aerials fitted?

A.

Local authority searches carried out by your Caerwent conveyancing solicitor should verify the existence of suitable authorisation for any development to the building.

Q.

Bank of Scotland will be our lender - is there anything I need to consider?

A.

When taking out a mortgage to buy a property, legal work must be undertaken in relation to the mortgage. Purchasers should be aware that, recently, a number of lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel'. We, however, will act for all large lenders.

Q.

The agent has named a law firm. Will it be more cost-effective to use this solicitor?

A.

Many estate agents have arrangements with solicitors where they refer clients. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, the agent may prefer to suggest the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the best value for you.

Q.

What type of due diligence in respect to the risk of a flood in Monmouthshire will a Caerwent conveyancer go into detail on?

A.

A key step in the legal procedure of buying a property involves your conveyancing solicitor carrying out conveyancing searches that set out some details on the subject of Caerwent flood risk.
