Q.

How do we find the best rates for conveyancing for a £393,000 house?

A.

Many online and high street conveyancers offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately extra fees can increase your final invoice. A conveyancing quote must also state costs to be paid to third parties, such as the Land Registry, (disbursments).Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

My wife and I are interested in purchasing a house in Cookham. How do I find out whether the house is in a conservation area?

A.

Parts of Cookham considered be of historic or architectural significance, like country house estates, may be recognised as areas of conservation. These restrictions can result in the buyer inheriting liability of unauthorised changes, but the benefits will include a more attractive neighbourhood. Your conveyancing solicitor will offer more information.

Q.

We are buying on a ex-industrial site. Could the topsoil be contaminated by industrial waste like vanadium (V)?

A.

There are laws imposed to stop future soil contamination. Metal contamination of soil in Cookham is more likely to occur near landfill sites. Data on other contaminants, like groundwater contamination, will also be included in an environmental search.

A.

There is no reason why a buyer should not take care of the legal work unaided.

Furthermore lawyers always get the appropriate insurance to insulate you from any professional losses you encounter made by the lawyer.

Q.

What does conveyancing searches be?

A.

Q.

We have had a quote from you. Will there be any supplementary hidden costs?
