Q.

I need a property lawyer that offers cheap conveyancing. Will I get a quote or and estimate?

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many home owners paying out more than they anticipated in the end, and many solicitors offer cheap conveyancing. Often extra costs can inflate the final invoice. A quote ought to define any disbursements.We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Do you work with many mortgage lenders with offices in Canonbury?

A.

We have solicitors who have experience working with the bulk of lenders registered with the Council of Mortgage Lenders. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Canonbury, including Canonbury Private Finance, 315 Upper St, London, N1 2XQ. The solicitor managing the legal work for your move will be able to give more detail.

Q.

Halifax Loans is going to be our mortgage lender, is there anything we need to check?

A.

Prior to recent changes, most solicitors could act for the majority lenders. Buyers should consider that, in some cases, lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel'. For purchasers, this can result in significantly increased legal costs. Homeward Legal, fortunately, can act for all major mortgage lenders to keep legal costs to a minimum.

What are the alternatives when buying a Canonbury semi detached house inside a Hackney council designated conservation area ?

Part of the legal process involves ordering of LLC1 searches of Hackney council to confirm conservation area status and the appropriate consent for any modifications. .

Q.

How early do you need to speak to a solicitor in Canonbury?

A.

If you use a conveyancing solicitor offering a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, the sooner you instruct a conveyancing solicitor, the better, as the legal work can start straight away. Some suggest waiting before instruction until an offer is accepted, but delays can risk the other side pulling out, particularly in uncertain market conditions.

Q.

Is an environmental search a fee or disbursement?

A.

Disbursements and fees should be identified on your quote. This charge is a disbursement not a fee, and is passed on at cost.

Q.

With a home ready to buy, with no mortgage, how can we get fast legal work?

A.

Experienced buyers will tell you that moving faster is key is to use a communicative conveyancing solicitor. There are various jobs you, as the buyer, can also do, such as, requesting regular updates from your conveyancing solicitor and keep the pressure on, quickly completing and return any forms and confirming your mortgage offer.
