Q.

I need low cost conveyancing. How do we get a quote?

A.

Both high-street and online firms promote so-called cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional fees may be added into the small print. Third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid ought to be listed on the quote Extra costs which are listed in terms of engagement ought to be fair and clearly defined and only apply in cases where the solicitor must perform additional tasks on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the solicitors' fees, based on the property you are buying.

Q.

What type of environmental conveyancing searches in respect to the risk of local flooding to properties in Hereford and Worcester will my Cookley solicitor actually conduct for a buy to let property I am purchasing?

A.

The conveyancer conducts formal property environmental searches that should include Cookley area flood risk information.

Q.

Can you explain why sale conveyancing legal work requires weeks?

A.

Cookley conveyancing may be subject to numerous interruptions or delays even where there is no chain. The delays can

unfortunately be out of the solicitor's hands. We understand how frustrating these are and aim to reduce the effect of these delays whenever it is feasible by chasing for prompt responses. Reasons for delay include the length of time it takes for the managing agent or landlord to respond to queries.

I have requested a conveyancing quote from you. Will I be billed any extra costs?

A.

No. Homeward Legal's solicitors never charge any extra, hidden costs regardless of circumstances. A Homeward Legal quote is an honest and accurate price.

Q.

Barnsley Building Society is going to be our lender, is there anything we need to consider?

A.

Some lenders are now reducing the size of their 'solicitor panel'. This can mean increased legal costs for property buyers. We, however, can act for most mortgage lenders, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

The home being bought is on a ex-industrial use land. Is the top-soil possibly contaminated?

A.

Soil contamination by industrial waste, including metals, will have occurred in parts of Cookley. Environment search results will factor contaminants, including metals and others such as groundwater contaminants like detergents.

Q.

Is contaminated land a problem in Cookley?

A.

A broad range of contaminants caused by human activities may significantly reduce the value of land in Cookley, such as masts or pylons or sand or clay quarries. An environmental search will give more detail.

Q.

Will we need to get a chancel liability search? We are purchasing in Cookley.

A.

In Cookley, some owners can be required to contribute towards repairs to churches. As a consequence of a recent Act, interest over any affected land in Cookley must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. Church properties in the local area include St Michael & All Angels and St Peter.
