Q.

How do we identify a genuinely cheap fee? I am looking for discount conveyancing in Easthampstead.

A.

Both high-street and online law firms purport to offer cheap conveyancing, but additional fees will be included in the solicitor's terms of engagement. These terms are often ignored by excited buyers, eager to get underway. Any extra charges found in the terms should be reasonable. They be applicable if the lawyer is required to complete extra work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid should be included on the conveyancing quote

Q.

Which parts of Easthampstead are covered by a conservation area?

A.

Locales deemed to be of historical merit, such as 18th century suburbs, will be recorded as conservation areas. Easthampstead itself is named as a conservation area. These restrictions may impose liability on a buyer for unauthorised alterations made by previous owners, but the benefits will include preservation of an area's historic charm.

Q.

For our mortgage lender, we have chosen Natwest, what do we need to know?

Over the last two years, some lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel'. Homeward Legal can act on behalf of the majority of lenders in the UK.

Q.

Is a property survey a good idea when purchasing property?

A.

It is recommended that Easthampstead buyers book a house surveyor to undertake a survey if buying in Easthampstead. Buyers should be aware that there are a range of issues that affect a property, including dry rot and severe weathering, and issues such as these are not likely to be investigated as part of the conveyancing itself.

Q.

Why does conveyancing legal work require so much time and effort?

A.

The conveyancing process could take more time than budgeted for many reasons. The delays are on occasion unhappily beyond the solicitor's power, Homeward Legal, however, understand how frustrating these are and aim to lessen their burden if it can be achieved by, for example, ordering searches as early as possible.

Q.

What will the searches cost?

A.

With Homeward Legal's conveyancing service, Easthampstead conveyancing clients are required to pay at most £249 for the standard search bundle. Searches are disbursements paid to a third party.

Q.

How early do I need to instruct a conveyancer?

A.

In simple terms, earlier is preferable, as the legal work can start very early in the process. Early instruction of a conveyancing firm for a purchase may mean that you will the details of your Easthampstead solicitor ready when you make an offer, or, if you are selling a property, information, especially from slow third-parties, can be requested even prior to accepting an offer.

Q.

What is the council tax on a Thirties semi-detached property in Easthampstead?

A.

In general, the conveyancing report on title will contain the Bracknell Forest council tax band. Council tax charges for Easthampstead are tabled on the Bracknell Forest council website. At the time of writing on 18 September 2012 rates for all bands are:

  • Band A - £912.00
