Many firms promote theoretically cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately additional fees are frequently hidden in the terms of engagement that unknowing buyers have not reviewed

Q.

In regards to the major flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England I am thinking that environmental searches aren't sufficient?

A.

Flood risk searches handled by your Castleton solicitor should include a more informative search (Landmark) if it is felt necessary.

If you remain still nervous you can consult one of your future neighbours.

Q.

We have had a quote from you. Might we be expected to pay any extra fees after the move?

A.

No. Our solicitors never charge any additional fees. Be aware that some conveyancers give 'quotes' which are in fact estimates, meaning that you could pay much more when you complete.

Q.

Are there any conservation areas in Castleton?

A.

There are several conservation areas around Castleton. The council will provide more details about local conservation areas, and the solicitor handling your purchase will discuss the relevant responsibilities.

Q.

What average time will it take our assigned conveyancing solicitor to finish all of the conveyancing work for a flat in a fifties home we are intending to buy?

A.

Getting contracts exchanged can take anywhere from around a month to 12 weeks depending on a number of issues such as the speed of the vendor's conveyancing solicitor, or re-negotiations following a survey.

Homeward Legal's conveyancing solicitors are extremely proactive completing in as little time as achievable.

Q.

What is the optimum stage one make arrangements with a removal van?

Our recommendation is for buyers to hold off instructing removals until such time as both sides have confirmed the moving date which typically occurs after contracts are signed. Usually home removals companies will impose a cancellation payment .
