Q.

We need to find affordable conveyancing. What do we need to consider?

A.

Both high-street and online solicitors offer 'the cheapest conveyancing', however extra costs are often hiding in the terms and conditions which unwary property buyers and sellers fail to check. Any fees found in the terms should be reasonable. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the solicitors' fees, based on the property you are buying.

Q.

Is your solicitor team set up to complete fast the conveyancing of residential property auction properties in Devizes?

A.

In fact we put together legal documentation for vendors and commonly take instructions from bidders at auction. Our niche auction team of solicitors and licensed conveyancers have worked for many bidders at regional residential property auctions like Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London, Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.

Regularly hard to value homes like development propositions, are purchased in auctions and these require deeper investigation prior to exchange. We therefore suggest buyers to decide on a local conveyancing firm well in advance of the auction day to allow sufficient time for a title report of the auction legal pack. Following the property auction your Homeward Legal solicitor is wholly prepared for completing the transaction inside the limited time as conventionally required .

Q.

I've had a conveyancing quote from you. Are there any hidden fees?

A.

No. We never charge any hidden extra fees for any reason. It may be the case that a separate piece of work is also advised, a statutory declaration, . Your solicitor can advise you of these.

Q.

What will the Devizes property solicitor recommend if the house I am buying is in a Wiltshire conservation area which seems to have conspicuous windows installed?

The local authority enquiries conducted by your Devizes conveyancing solicitor during the legal process should identify if the property is within a conservation area and any evidence of local authority approval for changes to the property will be requested.

Q.

At what stage should a home mover set up a removal company?

A.

The ideal way is to delay booking a removal company until after all parties have formalised the final home moving date which happens after exchange of contracts. Some firms will charge a change of date premium . If you are looking for a local company try Zelf, 42 New Pk St, Devizes, SN10 1DT Tel: 01380 729599 or Andy & White Removals Ltd, Unit 4 Hopton Ind Est Hopton Court, Devizes, SN10 2EU Call: 01225 705686.

Q.

How long should I expect it to take the solicitor to conduct all of the conveyancing work on a semi detached house?

A.

Getting contracts exchanged can take anywhere between a month and three months depending on a number of factors such as the efficiency of the seller's property solicitor, or the speed of your lender.

Q.

Is there anything we are supposed to do to make our Devizes conveyancing faster?

A.

As is often reported, a fast completion is key to instruct a proactive, diligent conveyancing solicitor. There are several things you, as the purchaser, can do to speed up the process. These include:

  • getting your mortgage offer in place
  • requesting regular updates from your conveyancing solicitor and keep the pressure on
  • answering any queries raised by your conveyancing solicitor as soon as possible

Q.

If we plan to purchase near Devizes, in the parish of Bremilham, do we need a chancel search?

A.

Whether you are buying a house in Devizes or elsewhere in the county, the Devizes conveyancing solicitor may suggest that a chancel search be ordered. Through some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have exercised their right to exact chancel repairs on the owners of lay rectorships, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish which has not been subject to chancel liability in the past will remain liability-free for new owners. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.
