Q.

How do we get the best conveyancing rates in Cross Keys for a £420,000 property?

A.

Many online and high street law firms purport to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Often extra charges can increase your final bill. Your Cross Keys conveyancing quote should, in addition, define the disbursements to be paid. Any extra fees needs to be clearly defined. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.

Q.

How much would our conveyancing searches be?

A.

Searches range in cost, depending on the searches chosen.

Q.

How do I avoid getting gazumped?

A.

Gazumping describes circumstances where a home owner accepts an offer and then rejects it in favour of a better offer. The risk of getting gazumped is present in any transaction. The first step in reducing the chance that gazumping will effect you is to instruct your solicitor early.

Q.

Is a property survey advisable when purchasing any property?

It is strongly recommended that property purchasers order a home buyer survey. Buyers should be aware that there are a range of defects that can affect a property, such as severe weathering. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.

Q.

How do we bypass paying out for SDLT?

A.

Homeward Legal firmly advise against any stamp duty scheme, as such schemes are costly and often likely to fail. There have been a small number of government-sponsored schemes, such as for first-time buyers.

Q.

We are buying on a recently-developed former industrial site. Could the soil be contaminated by industrial waste like tungsten (W)?

A.

Cross Keys agriculture or industry can cause soil contamination. The local authority for Cross Keys will be able to provide more detail on cases of contamination.

Q.

My partner and I are buying in Cross Keys. Can I find out whether the property is in a designated conservation area?

A.

With over 8,000 such areas listed throughout England, the neighbourhoods in or near Cross Keys will include several conservation areas. Your lawyer will advise further and discuss the relevant responsibilities.

Q.

The internet has plenty of very helpful handbooks going into great depth on DIY conveyancing. Do I need to instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Cross Keys for my home move?

A.

Hypothetically there are no arguments at all why a buyer shouldn't undertake the legal work yourself.

That said, a Cross Keys lawyer juggles a large array of tasks such as chasing replies to requisitions and applying for searches many of which require a qualified solicitor.
