Q.

I am trying to find an affordable Corston conveyancing quote. What do we need to consider?

A.

This affects many homeowners who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process. Many solicitors promote so-called cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately additional charges are often hiding in the terms of engagement which homeowners may have not read carefully Any additional charges listed in the terms needs to be fair and reasonable. Your quote should list any disbursements.Get a quote using the Homeward Legal quote calculator for the property you are buying.

Q.

How soon do we need to arrange a conveyancing solicitor?

A.

If you choose a solicitor with 'no move, no fee' protection, the sooner the better, as conveyancing involves several tasks that can be performed very early in the process. Prompt instruction of a conveyancing firm for a sale may mean that prior to marketing the property, documents can be prepared to make it potentially more attractive to motivated buyers, whereas if you are buying you can shave days off the process by having the details of your instructed solicitor ready when you make an offer.

Q.

Is it important that we get a chancel search? We are buying a flat in Corston.

A.

Some owners in Corston can be required to fund upkeep of nearby church land. A number of sources are used to identify liability, including maps of Corston's parish boundaries. Corston church lands include All Saints and All Saints.

Q.

Where can I go about check whether the Corston conservation area is in a poor state?

A.

English Heritage, a government body, have put together records of the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas.

Local conservation areas are nominated by Wiltshire who govern everything from including things like ugly shop fronts, removal of chimney stacks and the upkeep of public spaces.

Q.

Should we get a chancel search if I am purchasing in the parish of West Camel, near Corston?

A.

Whichever Corston parish you are purchasing in, a solicitor is likely to recommend a chancel search. In Corston's much older areas, chancel repair may be imposed on current owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. For property in the parish of West Camel, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

Does Corston include any areas of conservation?

A.

There are a number of conservation areas in or near Corston. You may wish to contact the local council if you have specific questions, but your conveyancing lawyer will address this during the house-buying process.

Q.

Handling the legal work without the assistance of a solicitor in Corston is becoming possible as a buyer and seller of a house. Would it be reasonable ?

A.

There is absolutely no argument why a seller should not take care of he bulk of the legal process without Corston solicitor. The truth is however that a property lawyer typically handles a significant number of roles from ranging from chasing any missing replies/clarifications to enquiries and interpreting the lease many of which are more safely handled with appropriate experience. Even more importantly DIY lawyers will not have the applicable indemnity cover which qualified solicitors firms are required by the SRA to carry.

Q.

An unanticipated event demand that we must to complete on the sale of our refurbished leasehold flat inside 2 months, do Homeward Legal work with any very fast Corston solicitors ?

A.
