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.

The estate agent has named the law firm that they have used before. Do we need to instruct them?

A.

It is not uncommon for agents in Kingston to endorse a law firm to handle your conveyancing, however, these referrals must be compared with other local solicitors, or better-value firms found online, as the agent may prefer to suggest the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.

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?

A.

The property solicitor will speak to the relevant council to enquire about the currently applicable council tax charges which will be set out in the conveyancing report on title. The latest tax charges for residents of Chippenham are set out online at the Wiltshire council site. On, 23 February 2013, rates are as follows:

  • Band A - £1,010.00
  • Band B - £1,179.00
  • Band C - £1,347.00
  • Band D - £1,515.00
  • Band E - £1,852.00
  • Band F - £2,189.00
  • Band G - £2,525.00
  • Band H - £3,031.00

Q.

Will we need a building surveyor to inspect the house purchase in Chippenham?

A.

It is strongly advised that home buyers arrange a home surveyor to carry out a survey if buying in Chippenham. There are many defects that have a negative impact on a property, for example flat roof leaks, and these will not be addressed by your conveyancing solicitor.

Q.

We need to complete this purchase as soon as possible, how can we guarantee fast conveyancing?

A.

Primarily, fast conveyancing is key is to employing a proactive solicitor. Ask these questions when identifying your conveyancer:

  • Was there a delay delivering a quote?
  • What methods of communication do they use? Posting documents can adds days of waiting to a purchase.
  • Will they order searches immediately?

Q.

Is contaminated land a concern in Chippenham?

A.

Property in Chippenham can be contaminated by a broad range of naturally-occurring factors, and factors such as overhead transmission lines will be reported on in environmental search results. Contamination can be caused by local waste sites, including Star Farm, Wiltshire, SN14 8LH.

Q.

In about 6 weeks we are intending to move out of our detached house in Chippenham into a larger maisonette in Calne . What is the right point to instruct a removal company?

A.

The most sensible course of action is to hold off booking a removal firm until such time as everyone has formalised your home moving date which commonly occurs once contracts have exchanged. The greater majority of house removals firms add an additional a re booking cost . Local information can be sought from Quality Moves, Cheltenham Dr, Chippenham, SN14 0SE Telephone: 07545 235787 or Rem Stor UK Ltd, 17 18/Forest Gate, Pewsham, Chippenham, SN15 3RS on 01249 446020.

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.
