Q.

Virgin Money is our lender, what do I need to be aware of?

A.

Buyers need to be aware that, over the last two years, some lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel'. This can mean increased legal costs for home buyers. Homeward Legal will act for all large lenders so that the buyer will not have to pay an additional fee for your lender's solicitor.

Q.

I am planning to buy an Edwardian terraced house. Is it that significant that searches are performed?

A.

These searches are a commonly-used set of enquiries performed on behalf of the purchaser, for example a drainage search. Conveyancing searches are very informative, but deal with legal considerations.

Q.

We are buying on a Cottesmore ex-industrial site. Is copper (Cu) top-soil contamination likely?

A.

Measures are taken throughout Cottesmore to identify soil contamination. Metal contamination of soil in Cottesmore is more likely to occur near disused factories or waste management sites. Data on other contaminants, like groundwater contaminants like hydrocarbons and perchlorate, will also be included in an environmental search.

Q.

What length of time does it take my assigned lawyer to exchange contracts all of the conveyancing work on the top floor of Victorian property we are intending to buy?

A.

Getting contracts exchanged can take anywhere between 3 weeks and three months, which can be hampered by a number of issues for example the speed of the vendor's property lawyer, or the speed of other lawyers in the chain.

Q.

What issues are key to guarantee a fast completion?

A.

Contacting a proactive and experienced conveyancer is key a fast transaction. Furthermore, there are a number of tasks you as the buyer can do to speed up the process. These include:

  • answering any queries raised by your conveyancer as soon as possible
  • ordering a property survey early in the transaction
  • calling or emailing your conveyancer, and chase them if you suspect any delays

Q.

Do we need to use a law firm put forward by the estate agent?

A.

If you opt for a solicitor referred this way, you the agent is able to exert pressure on a solicitor to wrap up the process as soon as possible, however, these referrals should be compared to other online or local firms, as it may be the case that the agent recommends the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.
