Conveyancing In Edingale Q & A's
What do I do if new and severe damage is found after moving in?
You should reasonably expect the home into which you’re moving to be cleared, clean and without additional damage. Of course, things can happen as removals can chip plaster, scratch or tear wallpaper, etc., but if there is significant damage that was not present before, it would be advisable to talk to your solicitor to see if there is any recourse for you on your seller.
You may also like to think about writing a clause into the contract that money will only be released after a cursory inspection of the premises to confirm that you are happy. This needs to be agreed with the seller’s solicitor, but the expectation is already raised. Beware that, in the chaos of the moving day, you can’t afford to delay things too much, so it’s a fine balance.
Can you give the reasons why the sale conveyancing process in Edingale takes such a long time?
Conveyancing will occasionally be drawn out. Homeward Legal endeavour to reduce the impact of these delays by chasing for prompt responses.
Which actual property conveyancing searches will my property solicitor in Edingale do on a Edingale building?

How is stamp duty calculated, and what should we pay on a £447k residential property?

Do we need to make use of the property lawyer that frequently works with by my estate agent?
Both agents and mortgage brokers will push a solicitor. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, some agents may 'recommend' the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.
How much will my searches cost?
With a Homeward Legal conveyancing solicitor, clients are expected to pay at most £249 for conveyancing searches. Searches are charged 'at cost'.
