Q.

How do we get the cheapest conveyancing solicitors?

A.

Both high-street and online solicitors advertise theoretically cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately extra charges are often hiding in small print. Extra costs should be fair. They be applicable solely where your lawyer must complete work beyond standard conveyancing for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

Q.

When is it wise to find a conveyancing solicitor in Caterham?

A.

Whether buying or selling, the earlier in the process you can instruct a firm, the better, as conveyancing involves a number of tasks which may be carried out very early in the process. Instructing a solicitor early can limit the risk of your transaction aborting.

Q.

The house being bought is on a brownfield site. Is the soil likely to remain contaminated?

A.

Caterham industrial or agricultural can cause top-soil contamination. The local authority for Caterham will be able to provide more detail on cases of contamination.

Q.

I have requested a quote from you. May there be any extra fees?

A.

Homeward Legal will not charge any additional charges regardless of circumstances. You should be aware that some solicitor do not give accurate quotes, only estimates, meaning that you could pay much more when you complete.

Q.

DIY conveyancing without the support of a conveyancer in Caterham is becoming possible when buying a maisonette , but would it be a good economy ?

A.

If you are so inclined attempt to do this you can definitely look after the majority of the legal work without approaching a qualified property solicitor in Caterham.

Of course legal firms would suggest that this is a risky idea as amateur lawyers are taking risks without the applicable insurance cover that lawyers will take out.

Q.

What would conveyancing searches cost?

A.

Conveyancing searches in Caterham ranges in cost, and will be dependent on your lender's requirements. Searches are disbursements, and are not included in a quote for solicitor's fees.

Q.

Do we need a chancel search if I am purchasing in the parish of Addington?

A.

Your solicitor is likely to recommend that a chancel search be taken out, irrespective of the parish where the house being bought is found. Through some parish councils have determined to charge chancel repairs on the current owners, a solicitor cannot state with certainty that a parish in which lay rectors have not been expected to pay chancel repair dues recently will not continue to be so. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.

Q.

What average time does it take my assigned solicitor to conduct the legal formalities on a detached building we are intending to purchase?

A.

The process can take anywhere from 1 month to 3 months, which can depend on a number of issues, like the speed of the vendor's conveyancing solicitor, or the speed of the local authority. Our highly conveyancing solicitors in Caterham are highly proactive completing the process as soon as we possibly can.
