Exmouth's nearest station is Exmouth. Exeter International Airport is 8 miles from Exmouth.

Exmouth is the closest hospital.

Q.

How do we get a discount conveyancing estimate?

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this issue catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many property lawyers claim to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra charges may inflate your final invoice. Your quote should also state any disbursements. Any extra costs ought to be fair and clearly defined. They only apply in cases where the lawyer is required to complete extra work for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

Santander will be our mortgage lender - what will I need to know?

A.

Over the last two years, some lenders are now reducing their 'solicitor panel', which may result in higher legal costs for purchasers. We can act for all major UK mortgage lenders.

Q.

In 2 months we are preparing to be finally moving out of our period property in Exmouth to a larger property in Exeter what is the best point to appoint a removal company?

A.

Most conveyancers tend to encourage sellers wait until such time as the contracts have exchanged as beforehand an agreed moving date wont have been fixed. Routinely removals firms add a cancellation amount . Why not try Direct Removals, 18 Park Rd, Exmouth, EX8 1TN Tel: 01395 271007 or Lockyer S, 15 Hulham Rd, Exmouth, EX8 3HS Call: 01395 225511.

Q.

Please give reasons why Exmouth property legal work for a sale takes so long?

A.

The legal work needed to sell or purchase a home may suffer setbacks. Homeward Legal aim to minimise the cost of these delays by chasing for prompt responses. Reasons for delay may include slow third parties such as landlords or managing agents.

Q.

What particular conveyancing searches should my Exmouth lawyer conduct for a Exmouth home?

A.

The common legal protocol will be to get the following Local Authority Search, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal), Environmental, Tin Mining Search and China Search and perhaps specific searches such as Utilities Search.

Q.

As a consequence of the widespread flooding in Sept 2012 in South West England I am anxious that environmental searches may not be exacting enough?

A.

Flood searches applied for by the Exmouth lawyer should include the far more rigorous search (Landmark) if it is felt necessary.

It may be prudent to contact a neighbour of the property for that further assurance.

Q.

I have taken out a quote from you. Will there be any supplementary hidden charges?

A.

No. Homeward Legal's solicitors do not hide any additional fees. You should be aware that some solicitor do not give accurate quotes, only estimates, meaning that your final bill could be much higher.

Q.

When is it appropriate to speak to a conveyancer in Exmouth?

A.

In the vast majority of cases, the earlier in the process you can instruct a conveyancing firm, the better. Some authors advocate postponing instruction until an offer is accepted, but doing so will put you at a disadvantage compared to better prepared buyers, or if your buyer decides to pull out due to delays.
