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.

When we are buying on the same road as rectory grounds in Exmouth, do you need to get a chancel liability search?

A.

Potentially amounting to over £100,000 in repair cost obligations, chancel liability should be considered by buyers of Exmouth property likely to be affected. Following the Land Registration Act 2002, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. Exmouth church properties which may give rise to chancel liability include Holy Trinity, St John in the Wilderness and St John the Evangelist.

Is your panel of solicitors set up to very fast completions on the legal conveyancing of auction properties in Exmouth?

Yes - Our team specialise in auctions and do frequently do the legal conveyancing auction buyers and sellers.

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.

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.

How will a property solicitor in Exmouth report back on the potential risk of possible flooding at Exmouth?
