Q.

What are the best conveyancing rates for a £768,000 property?

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many buyers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned, and many firms advertise cheap conveyancing, but extra fees are often hiding in the terms of engagement. Busy, stressed buyers ignore these terms at their peril. Extra costs should be fair and reasonable. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

I am selling in Clifton, and have had a conveyancing quote from you. Will I end up paying any extra fees?

A.

No. Homeward Legal never hide any hidden extra fees under any circumstances.

Q.

Is a PI contribution a disbursement or fee?

A.

A quote will clearly list all fees and disbursements. This cost is a fee not a disbursement, and should be included in the quote for your conveyancing.

Q.

Which Clifton mortgage lender panels are your solicitors on?

A.

Most lenders in Clifton are on our panels. Clifton lenders and mortgage specialists include Independent,

401 Gloucester Rd, Horfield, Bristol, BS7 8TS, Mortgage Advice Co Ltd, 619 Fishponds Rd, Fishponds, Bristol, BS16 3BA, and Independent Mortgage Associates, Monarch House/1-7 Smyth Rd, Bristol, BS3 2BX.

Q.

The current owner looks to have fitted unseemly cladding on the property which I think might break the Market Rasen conservation area guidelines.

A.

An integral part of the conveyancing process involves the application for searches of Bristol planning authority to see conservation area status and the required consent for developments. In the absence of any appropriate consents, your Clifton conveyancing solicitor will recommend all options, which include seeking from the council or purchasing an indemnity insurance policy.

Q.

In what ways can a Clifton lawyer advise on the risk of a flood to properties in Clifton?

A.

A vital part of the legal due diligence process carried out when buying a property involves a conveyancing lawyer carrying out conveyancing searches (environmental) that set out certain details regarding Clifton flood risk area. At the time of writing (16-Jul-12) there were no warnings around the at the River Teme at Shelsley Walsh and Clifton Upon Teme

Q.

What causes conveyancing for a Clifton property purchase to go on for so long?

A.

The conveyancing process can potentially be delayed, we, however, strive to curtail their effect where feasible by driving the sale or purchase forward. Reasons for delay may include slow solicitors acting for the other side.

Q.

When in the process is it wise to find a conveyancing solicitor to handle our transaction?

A.

If you use a solicitor offering a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, the earlier, the better. Some groups advocate postponing instruction until an offer is accepted, but doing so will put you at a disadvantage compared to better prepared buyers, or if your buyer decides to pull out due to delays.
