Q.

Is Homeward Legal experienced enough to act quickly on the conveyancing for auction properties in Chepstow?

A.

Yes - We work with auctioneers throughout Monmouthshire and often carry out work for auction buyers and sellers. Conveyancers consistently advocate auction buyers to formally appoint a residential lawyer well before the auction to allow time for a full review of the legal papers for the lot.

Subsequently, following the auction day itself your dedicated property lawyer will be ready for concluding the legal work in a as tight time frame as typically required by the conditions of sale.

Q.

ING Direct will be our lender - what will we need to consider?

Traditionally, almost all solicitors could perform legal work for both buyers and mortgage lenders. Some lenders have limited the number of solicitors who can act for them. We are able to act on behalf of the majority of mortgage lenders.

The truth is however that a solicitor typically handles a large number of exercises including raising additional enquiries or interpreting the lease some of which are more safely handled with appropriate a qualified solicitor.
