Q.

I need a discount conveyancing quote. Will we get a quote or and estimate?

A.

Many online and high street firms purport to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra fees may inflate the final invoice. Any costs listed in the terms should be fair and clearly defined. They come into force only if your lawyer is required to complete extra work for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.

Conveyancing solicitors in Chippenham do varied property conveyancing searches if acting for a property purchaser, but which specific ones?

A.

When getting a mortgage, your lender expects a solicitor to get particular searches, including the following Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environment Search, and possibly area-specific searches, like a Planning report.

Q.

What does the Chippenham property solicitor recommend if the house we hope to purchase is in a Wiltshire local authority conservation area that possibly has inappropriate satellite dishes added?

Local authority LLC1 searches conducted by your solicitor during the legal process will confirm if the property is in a designated conservation area and any evidence of consent for modifications will be requested.

Q.

Why does the conveyancing process require weeks?

A.

Conveyancing can take more time than initially expected, we, however, work hard to minimise the impact of these delays by proactively handling all enquiries. There are numerous reasons for delay, such as waiting for responses from third parties.

Q.

Will my conveyancer in Chippenham inform me about the cost of the council tax for a Band G flat prior to completing on the purchase?

How can we calculate Stamp Duty Land Tax rates and how much do we need to budget for a £942000 Chippenham house?

Q.

What type of local environmental searches in relation to the potential risk of a flood at Wiltshire will my Chippenham property solicitor apply for?

A.

A crucial step in the conveyancing protocol involves your conveyancer conducting property conveyancing searches that give you certain details with respect to Chippenham flood risk area data. A more detailed conveyancing search (e.g. Landmark) may possibly be proposed by the Chippenham property lawyer, if in the event that the initial conveyancing searches highlight a flood risk.
