Regrettably, some solicitors’ firms’ quotes are not all that they seem, and sellers need to be watchful for extra costs hidden in a quote's terms and conditions. Be aware that they will provide a low estimate, not an accurate quote, which they will not then be bound to, thus increasing your final bill. However, at Homeward Legal, we will not charge any additional fees. With us, it’s a case of ‘what you see is what you get’, so you will always be in charge of your legal bill.

As part of the conveyancing process, your lawyer will confirm whether a chancel search should be taken out or not. In older areas of Farnborough, chancel repair dues can be collected on current owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils may have not done so in the past, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely. Your solicitor will run through all the options so that you are protected.Q.
Conservation areas are locations designated as having architectural or historical significance. The purpose of conservation areas is to protect the buildings (and trees and plants in some cases) from inappropriate extensions and building. Your lawyer will be able to establish whether the property you are buying is within one of them, and if any modifications have the required permissions. If no suitable consents can be provided, your Farnborough conveyancer will inform you of all options (for example, obtaining an indemnity insurance policy, or seeking retrospective consent from the planning authority).Q.
There are no legal arguments as to why a home-mover shouldn’t engage in the majority of the legal process without the help of a trained lawyer. However, a property solicitor carries out a huge number of assignments (such as chasing replies to enquiries, and interpreting the lease), many of which require the relevant training and some experience. Doing the work by yourself will incur delays that might jeopardise the entire move. Most important of all the considerations, DIY lawyers are not covered by appropriate indemnity insurance, which legal firms are required by their regulator to carry.

The key to a fast completion is to employ an experienced, proactive and diligent property lawyer, like the ones we have at Homeward Legal. Beyond that, there are several tasks you as the buyer could do to get moving sooner. These include:

A small number of lenders have limited the number of solicitors who can act for them when organising mortgages. Homeward Legal will act for many mortgage lenders, which means that the lenders won’t pass on their legal bill to you.Q.
We usually encourage buyers and sellers to put off organising removals until after the exchange of contracts because, typically, a firm move date will not have been established. Many home removals companies will impose a change-of-date cost. When it comes time to appoint a firm, try:
The conveyancing process will sometimes be drawn out even where there is no chain. Unfortunately, the reasons are sometimes out of a solicitor's control. Homeward Legal, however, endeavour to minimise the impact of these delays where it is possible to do so by using fast search providers and proactive communication. There are numerous reasons for delay, such as slow third parties (e.g. landlords or managing agents), or the lack of responsiveness of the seller’s solicitor.
