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.

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.

Which government body keeps records for keeping order in the condition of repair of the conservation areas in Cross Keys?

A.

Local conservation areas are specified by the local authority (Newport) who are responsible for the state of the area including things like advertising hoardings, dormer windows and property boundaries. English Heritage, a government body, now maintain a list of the condition of conservation areas.

Q.

How early should I speak to a conveyancer?

A.

With a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, the sooner you instruct a conveyancing firm, the better. The legal work can then commence very

early in the process. Instructing your solicitor earlier for a purchase enables your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed, or, if you are selling a property, relevant information can be sourced sooner (this is particularly true for leasehold properties).

Q.

Will we need a chancel search if I am intending to purchase in the parish of Cross Keys, near Cross Keys?

A.

Whether you are buying a house in Cross Keys or elsewhere in the county, the solicitor may suggest that a chancel search is taken out. In Cross Keys's much older areas, chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on the owners of a house where parish councils may have not done so in the past. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.

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.

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.

We are planning to sell our freehold house in a an auction, does Homeward Legal use very fast Cross Keys solicitors ?

A.

Our firm always have a thoroughly speed focused modus operandi to finishing the legal process.

We have implemented new automated practice management systems .

We always allocate sellers a SRA conveyancing property lawyer who will communicate by phone and email with the whole home buyer and seller chain e.g. local authorities, to achieve a quick move.
