Q.

I need a cheap solicitor for buying a home. What do we need to consider?

A.

Confusion over this issue affects many home owners who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process. Many property lawyers offer so-called cheap conveyancing. However additional costs will be included in the solicitor's terms which unwary home owners fail to check. Any extra charges needs to be reasonable.

Q.

Do I need a building survey for our property purchase?

A.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors recommend that all purchasers in Datchet book a property survey. It is a fact that there are many problems that affect a property. These include cracks around door frames and wet rot.

Q.

The current owner has installed unsympathetic removal of chimney stacks on the property which I think might violate the Picton conservation area criteria.

A.

Local authority LLC1 searches conducted by a property lawyer as part of the conveyancing should ascertain whether the property is in a designated conservation area and evidence of the appropriate permissions for additions to the property will be asked for.

Q.

As a result of the worrying amount of flooding in the UK in April 2012 we are concerned that conveyancing and environmental searches might not be sufficient?

A.

The Datchet property solicitor will advise you to apply for environmental searches if the first searches establishes a any kind of the local Datchet flood risk

It could be worth trying to converse with a next door neighbour for that further local information.

Q.

I am planning to sell my house and have a quote from you. Could there be any extra charges?

A.

Homeward Legal's solicitors do not charge any additional charges under any circumstances. Be aware that some solicitor do not give accurate quotes, only estimates, which they will not be bound to.

Q.

How many weeks does it take my assigned conveyancer to exchange the legal process for a semi detached property?

A.

It can take anywhere from 1 month to 12 weeks, based on any number of things e.g. the speed of the vendor's property lawyer, or the time taken to issue draft contracts.

Q.

Are we advised to get a chancel search if I am buying in the parish of Winkfield, near Datchet?

A.

A property solicitor may suggest a chancel search. Although some church councils have exercised their right to exact chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, it is not possible to be certain that a parish in which lay rectors have not been expected to pay chancel repair dues recently will not continue to be so. For property in the parish of Winkfield, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

What makes Datchet property legal work to seem to be so slow? Isn't it a simple matter of filing paperwork?

A.

The legal work needed to sell or purchase a property can suffer all manner of setbacks. Homeward Legal strive to minimise the cost of these delays if it is possible to do so. Delays include the length of time it takes for the managing agent or landlord to respond to queries.
