Q.

I need a property lawyer that offers cheap conveyancing in Chelsfield. because we are on a limited budget.

A.

Various law firms purport to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing'. However additional costs are frequently hidden in the terms of engagement. Charges included in terms of engagement needs to be clearly defined. They be applicable if your conveyancer must complete unanticipated additional work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Based on the property you intend to buy, our online quote calculator will generate an accurate statement of conveyancing fees.

Q.

My lender is the Co-op - what will we need to be aware of?

A.

Some lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel'. We are able to act for most mortgage lenders so that the buyer will not have to pay legal costs to your lender's solicitor.

Q.

We have had a quote from you. May there be any hidden charges?

A.

Homeward Legal never charge any extra, hidden costs for standard conveyancing work. It may be that a significant piece of other legal work is also necessary, a deed of easement, for example, but your conveyancing solicitor will make you aware of these.

Q.

Is it recommended to get a chancel search? We are buying close to a parsonage in Chelsfield.

A.

Owners of property in an area near churches must contribute towards repairs, where chancel repair liability exists. After the passing of an Act in 2002, interest over any affected land in Chelsfield must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. Chelsfield churches where chancel liability may apply include St Martin of Tours.

Q.

The web is awash a number of very helpful handbooks all about how to do DIY conveyancing. Do I therefore need to use a property lawyer in Chelsfield ?

A.

Technically, there is no argument at all why a home seller cannot look after the legal process unaided. That said, a solicitor juggles a huge array of tasks ranging from liaising with the insolvency office for k15 entries or checking for any restrictive covenants many of which need training. Furthermore lawyers are made responsible to possess sufficient indemnity cover to insulate you from any omissions.

Q.

Would getting a property survey be required when purchasing property?

A.

It is suggested that the majority of buyers order a home buyer survey when you plan to buy in Chelsfield. There can be a range of problems that can negatively affect a property, which will not be addressed during a property valuation, for example insect infestation.

Q.

How long on average does it take my assigned property solicitor to get through all of the conveyancing work for a semi detached building we are thinking of buying?

A.

The process can take anywhere from 3 weeks and 3 months based on various factors e.g. the efficiency of the vendor's conveyancing solicitor, or whether your solicitor has to act for your lender.

Homeward Legal's conveyancing solicitors in Chelsfield are focused on speed and communication you moving home in as short a time as realistically possible.

Q.

How soon should you arrange a conveyancing solicitor?

A.

With a firm offering a 'no move, no fee' conveyancing quote, as soon as possible. Prompt instruction of a conveyancing firm could mitigate the chance of your sale or purchase aborting.
