Q.

How do we get the best conveyancing rates for a £117,000 property?

A.

Both high-street and online conveyancers promote 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however extra costs are frequently hidden in the terms and conditions. Any disbursements should also be included on a quote. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

As a result of the flooding in Sept 2012 in South West England we are apprehensive that flood searches may not be detailed enough?

A.

Property environmental searches conducted by your conveyancing solicitor in Cheddar will also include a more specialist Landmark flood search if the risk is deemed significant.

You could speak to a local resident for that extra comfort.

Q.

We have found a buyer and have a quote from you. Will I be charged any hidden costs?

A.

Regrettably, hidden fees are relatively common. Homeward Legal never hide any additional charges.

Q.

We are buying an extended investment flat in the boundary of conservation area in Cheddar. How does one find more data in relation to the standard of repair of the area?

A.

Following a campaign, English Heritage have conducted a survey and created a list of the state of repair of conservation areas. Conservation areas are nominated by the local Sedgemoor planning authority, who preside over things like what can be demolished to the blockage of street posts.

Q.

Should I get a homebuyer report?

A.

It is suggested that most purchasers order an inspection. Buyers should be aware that there are a wide range of issues which will impact a property, which include poor ventilation. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.

Q.

What factors will contaminate land in Cheddar, and will they be thoroughly investigated?

A.

A broad range of contaminants could irreparably damage property in Cheddar. Contaminants including pollution incidents will be considered as part of the environmental searches.

Q.

What length of time will it take for my designated property lawyer to exchange contracts the legal work for a semi detached Thirties property we want to buy?

A.

The conveyancing process can take anywhere from 3 weeks and 3 months, which can depend on a number of factors e.g. the efficiency of the vendor's property lawyer, or contentious issues that may arise. Our highly conveyancing solicitors are very proactive work towards completing the process as promptly as achievable.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Cheddar?

A.

Cheddar is located in Sedgemoor District Council, Bridgwater House, King Square, Bridgwater, Somerset, TA6 3AR, Tel: 0845 408 2540
