Q.

Although there are lots of £99 fixed quotes online, how do we find a reputable one? We need affordable conveyancing in Drybrook.

A.

Many solicitors claim to offer so-called cheap conveyancing, however extra charges may be added into the small print. The online quote calculator can generate an accurate statement of the legal fees for the property you plan to buy.

Q.

What factors help with getting a fast conveyancing transaction?

A.

Crucial to faster conveyancing is to use a proactive property lawyer. There are a number of things you can also do to get moving sooner, such as, promptly answering your property lawyer's questions (by email if possible), keeping in regular contact with your property lawyer and clarifying your mortgage lender's requirements.

Q.

Does your company handle the legal conveyancing of property auction properties in Drybrook?

A.

We are familiar with buyers at auction. Traditionally specialist houses are purchased in auctions which demand additional fact-finding before completion. We therefore strongly advise that purchasers instruct a suitable lawyer well in advance of the property auction to allow enough time for a detailed report of the lot.

Post day of bidding your lawyer is fully prepared for concluding the conveyancing in the usual 28 days as usually required .

Q.

How does sale conveyancing work need such a long time?

A.

The Drybrook conveyancing process could be exposed to significant delays. Homeward Legal understand that these can cause considerable stress and seek to minimise their effect where it is possible to do so. Delays may include problems with arranging a mortgage.

Q.

The residence in Drybrook being bought is on a brownfield site. Could the topsoil be contaminated by industrial waste?

A.

Measures are taken throughout Drybrook to rectify soil contamination. Various bodies hold data on land contaminants affecting Drybrook, including local authorities.

Q.

Halifax will be our lender, is there anything we need to consider?

A.

Recently, a number of lenders are now reducing the size of their 'solicitor panel', resulting in higher legal costs for property buyers if the lender insists upon their own preferred solicitor . Homeward Legal will act for all large lenders.

Q.

Will our Drybrook conveyancing solicitor tell me about the amount of council tax to be paid for a Band E property prior to completion?

A.

Your property's respective council tax band should in most cases be detailed within the conveyancer's title report along with the local authority.

How long should I expect it to take my assigned conveyancer to conclude all of the legal process for a detached home we want to buy?
