Q.

I need the cheapest conveyancing solicitors. How do we get a quote?

A.

The confusion over this matter catches out many home owners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many law firms offer theoretically cheap conveyancing, but additional fees may pad the final bill. Additional fees listed in the terms ought to be reasonable and clear. They be applicable if your lawyer must complete work beyond standard conveyancing , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

What environmental concerns will contaminate land in Fenstanton, and are they properly investigated?

A.

Residential property may have been contaminated by many natural and human-influenced issues, like shallow mining. An environmental search can provide much more clarity.

Q.

When in the conveyancing process do I need to speak to a conveyancing solicitor?

A.

With a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, the earlier in the process you can instruct a solicitor, the better. The legal work can then begin immediately. Prompt instruction of a solicitor for a sale may mean that documents can be prepared earlier, considerably accelerating the whole process, whereas if you are buying your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed.

Q.

I am purchasing with Co-operative Bank - what do we need to know?

A.

Some lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel. For purchasers, this can result in significantly increased legal costs. We can act for many mortgage lenders so that you will not be required to pay legal costs to your lender's solicitor.

Q.

If we plan to buy near Fenstanton, in the parish of Tadlow, do we need a chancel search?

A.

Your conveyancing lawyer could advise a chancel search, regardless of the parish in which the house being purchased is located. In older areas of Fenstanton, chancel repair can be imposed on owners of a house where church councils may have not done so in the past, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.

Q.

The web is full of collections of publications giving details on by passing the solicitor e.g. A Practical Approach to Commercial Conveyancing and Property. Do I actually want to use a Fenstanton solicitor ?

A.

On paper there are absolutely no arguments at all why a home buyer should not carry out the legal and technical work unaided. However, a property solicitor takes care of a large array of assignments such as chasing lender for comments on issues raised and applying for searches most of which need a qualified solicitor.

Q.

For a fast conveyancing process to buy a £740,000 house, how can we speed things up?

A.

Firstly, a fast conveyancing transaction is the key to instruct a proactive, diligent conveyancing solicitor. Furthermore, there are a range of tasks you can do to speed up the process. These include:

  • promptly answering your conveyancing solicitor's questions (by email if possible)
  • arranging any finances require to complete the purchase
  • contacting your conveyancing solicitor regularly

Q.

May the costs for our conveyancing cover any additional charges?

A.

Unfortunately, hidden fees are not uncommon in conveyancing. Homeward Legal's solicitors will never charge any extra, hidden fees. Some solicitors only estimate conveyancing costs, which could be totally different to your final invoice.
