Q.

How can we ensure our cheap quote is fixed? I am looking for a fixed rate conveyancing quote in Chatteris.

A.

Lack of clarity over this topic catches out many buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many firms claim to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes, however additional charges can inflate the solicitor's invoice. Any fees listed in the small print should be fair and reasonable. A quote should, in addition, define any disbursements.Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

I am planning on buying a 1940s maisonette in the boundary of conservation areas. How do we find details in regards to the current state of upkeep of the conservation area?

A.

Local conservation areas are created by Fenland who preserve things like building materials to derelict buildings. English Heritage, a government body, have created records of the state of repair of conservation areas.

Q.

Will our conveyancing charges incorporate any additional costs?

A.

No. Our solicitors never hide any extra, hidden charges for conveyancing in Chatteris. A Homeward Legal conveyancing quote is an accurate fee the legal expenses for your transaction.

Q.

The estate agent has named the property lawyer. Will it be cheaper to instruct them?

It is not uncommon for agents to refer one or more conveyancing firms. These referrals should be compared against alternatives, as an agent may choose the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.

Q.

Does my Chatteris conveyancing solicitor tell me about the cost of council tax on a Band A townhouse prior to exchange of contracts?

A.

The property solicitor will approach the Fenland local authority to ascertain the most up to date council tax charges which will then be included in the report on title.

Q.

Environmental searches are standard procedure for home buyers but with recent events such as the Met Office warning of more intense rainfall in the future are they the best way to advise on sufficient information about the changing Chatteris flood risk?
