Q.

Do all cheap conveyancing quotes have extra fees? I am trying to find a fixed rate conveyancing estimate.

A.

Both high-street and online firms advertise 'the cheapest conveyancing', but additional costs are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Any additional charges should be fair. They come into force only if the conveyancer must complete additional work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Your Chelmsford conveyancing quote should, in addition, define any disbursements.We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Should we be worried about gazumping?

A.

Gazumping describes circumstances where a buyer's offer is, following agreement, later rejected by the seller, in preference to a higher offer. The will be a danger of gazumping in any transaction, because offers are not binding until exchange of contracts. You should instruct a property solicitor as early as possible to reduce the chance of your transaction being gazumped.

Q.

In 1 month we are shortly going to move from our semi detached property near Chelmsford to a new dwelling in Chadwell St Mary , what is the best point to appoint a removals firm?

A.

Best advice is for home movers to delay agreeing a removal firm until the point where all parties have firmed up the final moving date which commonly happens once exchange of contracts. Some firms charge a re booking fee

Q.

Do Homeward Legal handle the legal conveyancing of residential property auction properties in Chelmsford?

A.

Our company is familiar with bidders at auction. Our auction team conveyancing lawyers have worked for many buyers at local auctions including Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London, Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.

Prepared purchasers will choose a local lawyer as early as possible to allow for a title report of the sellers documents in advance of the property auction. Following the date of the auction your now prepared conveyancing lawyer is completely ready for quickly concluding the transaction in as short a time frame as conventionally required .

Q.

We plan to purchase a home in the parish of Panfield. Should we order a chancel search?

A.

Your lawyer could advise a chancel search. Although some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have decided to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, it is not possible to be certain that a parish where repair costs have not been paid before will remain liability-free for new owners. For property in the parish of Panfield, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.
