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.

The estate agent we are using in Hanworth has put forward the solicitors firm. Is it a good idea to use this firm?

A.

It is common for estate agents to recommend a conveyancing solicitor, however, such referrals should be compared against alternatives, as some agents may 'recommend' whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the most suitable for you.

Q.

My wife and I am planning to sell our co-owned residence at an auction next month, does Homeward Legal have fast solicitors in Cookham ?

A.

Our team takes a active approach to completing the legal work for home movers as quickly as possible.

Homeward Legal only allocate you to conveyancing solicitors which will exert pressure to the whole property chain . In addition our property lawyers are chosen because they implement modern productivity systems to exchange on the legal work swiftly.

Q.

When I am buying on the same road as a 14th Century rectory in Cookham, would you recommend that we get a chancel liability search?

A.

There are fifteen thousand Church of England and Church of Wales parishes throughout England and Wales. Owners of property within some of these may be required to contribute towards the cost of the repair of a local church. Indemnity policies can be arranged if chancel liability is likely to be enforced. A solicitor will be able to advise further. Churches in Cookham include Holy Trinity.

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.

Which particular property searches will my conveyancing solicitor in Cookham carry out when acting on a Cookham building?

A.

Standard legal procedure will be to obtain these searches - Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search and Environmental, and possibly less common searches, which may include a HS2 Search.

Q.

What will the Cookham conveyancing lawyer advise if the flat I want to buy is inside a Wycombe planning authority conservation area which has an un-consented doors installed?

A.

Local authority Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search carried out by a solicitor during the legal process should check whether the property is in a conservation area and evidence of local authority approval for additions to the property will be requested.

Q.

Doing your own conveyancing without a Cookham lawyer appears to be becoming possible when buying and selling a flat. Would it really be reasonable ?

A.

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

That said, a lawyer takes care of a huge number of jobs ranging from interpreting replies to enquiries and applying for searches some of which really need a skilled professional. Furthermore lawyers always get the appropriate insurance to insulate you from any professional losses you encounter made by the lawyer.
