Q.

How do I get low cost conveyancing in Cotham?

A.

Numerous law firms claim to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however additional fees will be included in the terms of engagement which unwary buyers and sellers fail to check. Applicable disbursements should be included on the quote Any extra costs included in the solicitor's terms should be fair.

Q.

We are buying a church rectory in Compton Greenfield. Will a chancel search be required?

A.

Whichever Cotham parish you are purchasing in, a property lawyer might recommend a chancel search. In Cotham's much older areas, chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on new owners of a house where church councils may have not done so in the past.

Q.

We are intending to buy in Cotham, should we have searches ordered?

A.

These searches are a commonly-used set of enquiries ordered by your conveyancing solicitor, which may include a drainage search, and refer to legal facets of the purchase.

Q.

Does your firm administer auction conveyancing in Cotham?

A.

We are familiar with residential property auction conveyancing. Usually more complicated to convey lots like building plots, are listed in property auctions which want extended exploration. Homeward Legal therefore encourage buyers to select a CQS conveyancing lawyer prior to the auction day for a thorough review.

Immediately following the date of the auction your chosen lawyer is wholly focused on concluding the legal work within 28 days as required .

Q.

Our mortgage lender will be New Life Mortgages - what do I need to know?

A.

When organising a mortgage, your lender will require legal work to be carried out on their behalf. In some cases, lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel, potentially creating increased conveyancing costs for buyers. Homeward Legal are able to act on behalf of many mortgage lenders, ensuring that an additional solicitor will not be required to act for your lender.

Q.

My local agent has suggested a conveyancing solicitor. Will it be faster to use this firm?

A.

Many estate agents have referral deals with solicitors where they refer conveyancing clients to them. These referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, as some agents choose whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the best value for you.

Q.

What can affect land in Cotham. Are they a concern?

A.

Residential property is contaminated by numerous naturally-occurring factors, such as local historic industrial processes and brine works. An environmental search will give more detail.

Q.

How soon should we instruct a solicitor to act on our purchase?

A.

If you use a solicitor offering a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, the earlier, the better. The legal work can then start very early in the process. Instructing a firm early can reduce any chance of your purchase or sale stalling.
