Q.

What are the best rates for conveyancing for a £142k property?

A.

Many solicitors advertise so-called cheap conveyancing quotes, however additional fees are often hiding in small print which homeowners may have not read carefully Your quote should list the disbursements to be paid. Any extra fees found in the small print should be fair and reasonable and be applicable solely where the conveyancer is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Does homewardlegal.co.uk manage the conveyancing for auction properties in Cottenham Park?

A.

Our company is used to working with residential property auction conveyancing. Conventionally specialist auction lots such as un-mortgageable properties, are listed in property auctions and these demand additional review. We therefore strongly encourage buyers at auction to select a local conveyancing company before the date of the auction to give enough time for an investigation of the legal papers for the lot.

Immediately following the actual auction your Homeward Legal lawyer will be focused on quickly concluding the conveyancing within a as tight time frame as required .

Q.

Bookshops and the web have a plethora of on and offline documents all about DIY conveyancing. Do I therefore need to use a lawyer in Cottenham Park ?

A.

There is no argument why you cannot decide to undertake the conveyancing without a skilled Cottenham Park solicitor. However, a solicitor typically handles a long list of assignments e.g. chasing replies to enquiries and notifying parties of completion many of which need a skilled professional. Above all DIY conveyancers will be working without acceptable cover which practicing legal firms are liable to be required to take out.

Q.

Is there a government body some info on the upkeep of the conservation areas in Cottenham Park?

A.

Following a campaign, English Heritage have conducted a survey and created a list of the condition of conservation areas. Local Cottenham Park conservation area issues for instance area development, removal of existing windows or plastic box signs etc. are handled by the local Kingston upon Thames planning authority.

Q.

In relation to the Met Office projecting more intense rainfall in the future we are anxious that flood risk searches may not be detailed enough?

A.

A diligent conveyancing solicitor in Cottenham Park will suggest that you also get flood risk searches if the environmental searches flag up a significant risk Cottenham Park flood risk area data

For extra assurance why not contact a neighbour of the property.

Q.

My mortgage lender will be Derbyshire Home Loans - what do we need to consider?

A.

Buyers should be aware that, in some cases, lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel', resulting in increased legal costs for buyers if their preferred solicitor cannot act for the lender. Homeward Legal, though, will act for the vast majority of mortgage lenders.

Q.

Is preparation of title repair or a indemnity policy a fee or disbursement?

A.

Some conveyancers hide extra costs as necessary disbursements. It is not always obvious whether a cost is a fee or disbursement, and if it ought to be included. This cost is a fee not a disbursement, and should be included in your quote.

Q.

Which Cottenham Park lender panels are you on?

A.

Homeward Legal have worked alongside most lenders registered with the Council of Mortgage Lenders. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Cottenham Park, like Scott Mark Ltd, 15-17 White Hart Ct, St. Ives, PE27 5EA, Turney & Associates Ltd, 5-7 Covent Gardens, Cambridge, CB1 2HS, and Another Mortgage Co Ltd, 92 Melbourn Rd, Royston, SG8 7DG.
