Q.

How do we find the best rates for conveyancing in Cambourne for a £630,000 house?

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many property buyers and sellers paying out more than they anticipated in the end, and many conveyancers claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing', but additional costs are frequently hidden 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.

How much will the conveyancing searches cost?

A.

The cost of searches can vary somewhat. The most generally useful searches include a mining search and a local authority search.

Q.

What length of time does it take my solicitor to carry out the legal formalities on a semi detached building?

A.

Getting contracts exchanged can take anywhere from 1 month to 12 weeks, which can depend on various things e.g. the efficiency of the vendor's solicitor, or the speed of the lender. Our chosen conveyancing solicitors are focused on communication work towards completing the legal process as speedily as possible.

Q.

As a result of the extensive flooding in the UK in April 2012 we are asking if conveyancing searches may not be sufficient?

A.

An experienced Cambourne solicitor should always include property conveyancing searches if the environmental searches spots a any kind of Cambourne flood risk.

Sometimes buyers also converse with a local resident for some extra comfort.

Q.

How soon do you need to instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Cambourne?

A.

Generally, earlier is preferable, as the legal work can start immediately. Promptly instructing a solicitor for your Cambourne transaction for a purchase may mean that your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed, or, if you are selling a property, prior to marketing the property, documents can be prepared to make it potentially more attractive to motivated buyers.

Q.

Could our conveyancing fees have any extra costs?

A.

Unfortunately, hidden fees are not uncommon in conveyancing. Our solicitors never hide any hidden charges.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Cambourne?

A.

Cambourne is located in Uttlesford District Council, Council Offices, London Road, Saffron Walden, Essex, CB11 4ER, phone: 01799 510 510

Q.

Our estate agent has named the property lawyer that they have used before. Will it be cheaper to use them?

A.

The Toddington agent will usually suggest one or more conveyancing firms. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, the agent may recommend the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the best value for you.
