Q.

I need low cost conveyancing in Carshalton. What is included?

A.

Both high-street and online solicitors advertise theoretically cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately additional costs can inflate the final bill. Additional fees should be reasonable and clear. Applicable disbursements ought to be listed on a quote

Q.

What causes the sale conveyancing process in Carshalton to take such a long time? Should we be worried?

A.

The legal work needed to sell or purchase a property can experience delays. We understand how unnecessarily stressful these delays can be and aim to reduce their consequences if it can be achieved by pushing all parties involved. There are numerous reasons for delay, such as waiting for a mortgage offer.

Q.

Does 'fixtures and fittings' include things like light switches?

A.

Buyers will often be frustrated with the lack of formality around which fixtures and fittings should be included. 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.

Do we need a chancel search if I am intending to buy in the parish of Clerkenwell St Mark, near Carshalton?

A.

The conveyancing solicitor may suggest that a chancel search be ordered, irrespective of the parish where the house being bought is found. In older areas of Carshalton, chancel repair dues can be collected on owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils may have not done so in the past.

Q.

I have found an increasing number on and offline articles about doing your own legal work. Do I really have to use Carshalton property solicitor ?

A.

There is no argument why a home seller shouldn't do the legal work yourself. That said, a lawyer handles a long list of functions e.g. chasing deeds and DS1 documents or maintaining constant communication with agents which need experience. Despite that lawyers are made responsible to carry insurance cover that protects you from any errors.

Q.

How much can the conveyancing searches in Carshalton usually cost?

A.

With Homeward Legal, you will be expected to pay at most £249 for conveyancing searches for a Carshalton purchase.

Q.

For our lender, we have chosen Manchester Building Society - is there anything we need to know?

A.

Traditionally, almost all conveyancing solicitors could act for the large mortgage lenders. Recently, a number of lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel. For buyers, this can result in significantly greater conveyancing costs. Homeward Legal can act for all major UK mortgage lenders, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

Do I need to use a solicitors firm who usually works with by the agent?

A.

It is common practice for agents in Upminster to suggest a law firm to handle your conveyancing. These referrals must be carefully considered, as it may be the case that the agent recommends whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the most appropriate choice.
