Q.

We need a lawyer that offers cheap conveyancing. What should we check?

A.

This catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors offer 'the cheapest conveyancing', however extra fees are frequently hidden in the terms of engagement, left unregarded by busy buyers Any additional charges which are listed in the small print should be reasonable and clear. They only apply in cases where your lawyer is required to complete unexpected extra work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Applicable disbursements ought to be listed on the conveyancing quote. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.

When you are buying a property next to a rectory manor in Dronfield, is it advisable that I get a chancel liability search?

A.

Owners of property in Dronfield may be subject to chancel repair liability. Several sources are used to determine liability in Dronfield, including local maps. Dronfield church properties where a chancel search may be appropriate include St John Baptist.

Q.

Will I need a building surveyor to view our property purchase?

A.

It is advised that home buyers book a home surveyor. It is a fact that there are a range of concerns that can negatively affect a property, which will not be addressed during a property valuation, such as settlement or rotten roof timbers.

Q.

My agent has put forward the conveyancing solicitor which they often use. Is it a good idea to use them?

A.

The agent can influence a solicitor they refer many clients to, and can therefore to reduce delays in the conveyancing process, however, these referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, including online or local firms, as some agents may 'recommend' the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.

Q.

Which actual conveyancing searches will the Dronfield property solicitor conduct when acting on a Dronfield flat?

A.

The conventional procedure is to get Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal), Environment Search and Lead and perhaps special local Dronfield searches e.g. a HS2 Search.

Q.

I am buying in Dronfield, and would like to confirm that there are many conservation areas.

A.

There are several conservation areas in or near Dronfield. Your conveyancing lawyer will be able to provide more details and discuss what specific restrictions are in place, regarding specific conservation areas in Dronfield.

Q.

May our legal charges include any hidden charges?

A.

No. Homeward Legal will not charge any hidden fees. You should be aware that some solicitors' firms will give a low estimate, not an accurate quote, which they will not be bound to.

Q.

In 1 month we are shortly going to move from our semi detached residence on the outskirts of Dronfield to a house in Chellaston , what is the right point to book a home removal firm?

Your solicitor would tend to advocate that buyers and sellers hold off until after exchange of contracts as an absolute home moving date will not have been confirmed. Many removals companies will charge a change of date payment
