Q.

How do we find low cost conveyancing in Chipping Sodbury?

A.

Many solicitors claim to offer cheap conveyancing, but extra fees will be included in the terms and conditions, left unread by preoccupied buyers and sellers Any extra charges found in terms and conditions should be fair and clearly defined. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the solicitors' fees, based on the property you are buying.

Q.

We have found collections of handbooks giving details on doing the legal work yourself e.g. House Buying, Selling and Conveyancing by Joesph Bradshaw and Georgia Bedworth. Do we need to use a Chipping Sodbury conveyancer ?

A.

In theory there is no reason why a home seller cant conduct your own conveyancing on your own.

In reality however, a lawyer is familiar with a huge array of activities such as chasing deeds and DS1 documents and checking replies to additional enquiries some of which require experience.

Q.

What would our searches on average cost?

A.

The cost of searches varies noticeably. Conveyancing searches are disbursements.

Q.

Which Chipping Sodbury lender panels are you on?

A.

The Homeward Legal partnership have solicitors who have experience working with the majority of lenders serving Chipping Sodbury home purchasers. Local mortgage lenders and brokers include Ok Mortgages Ltd, 21 Harlech Way, Willsbridge, Bristol, BS30 6US, Hawkins M R, 27 Selworthy, Bristol, BS15 9RJ, and New Era Financial Planning, 7 Madeline Rd, Bristol, BS16 3EN.

Q.

Could our conveyancing fees for our Chipping Sodbury sale have any extra charges?

A.

Unfortunately, the practice of hiding extra costs in the 'small print' is quite common. Homeward Legal will not charge any extra, hidden costs. Some conveyancers give 'quotes' which are in fact estimates, which could be totally different to your final invoice.

Q.

For a lender, we have chosen Bradford and Bingley, is there anything I need to know?

A.

When arranging a mortgage to purchase a property, your lender will require legal work to be carried out on their behalf. Buyers should be aware that some lenders are now limiting the firms who can act for them, which may result in increased legal costs for buyers. We, though, are able to act for the vast majority of lenders in the UK, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

Should I get a property survey?

A.

It is strongly advised that home buyers book a house surveyor to carry out a survey. There can be a range of defects that have a negative impact on a property, such as severe weathering and unsafe chimney circulation. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.

Q.

Which government authority has overall responsibility for watching over the standard of the conservation areas in Chipping Sodbury?

A.

Following a campaign, English Heritage have put together records of the state of repair of conservation areas. Local conservation areas are set up by South Gloucestershire who manage the state of the area including things like back illuminated signs, addition of unsympathetic windows and street furniture.
