I am looking for a cheap solicitor to buy a house. Will we get a quote or and estimate?


Many conveyancers promote theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra costs will be included in the solicitor's terms which buyers may have not read carefully A conveyancing quote should state costs to be paid to third parties, such as the local authority, (disbursements). Costs found in the small print should be fair and reasonable. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


What type of analysis regarding the potential risk of possible flooding at Enfield will a conveyancer in Forty Hill report back on for a Fifties house we intend to buy?


A qualified conveyancing solicitor will carry out formal environmental searches that will include Forty Hill flood risk area information. At the time of writing publication on the Environment Agency do not reveal any active flood warnings in the Forty Hill area.


What conservation areas are there in Forty Hill?


Parts of Forty Hill considered be of architectural merit, like fishing villages, may be designated as conservation areas. The local council will provide more details about local conservation areas, and the lawyer handling your purchase should discuss what specific restrictions are in place.


Does your company deal with the conveyancing of auction properties in Forty Hill?

Yes - Homeward Legal is very competent with residential property auction procedures. It is not unusual for specialist properties for example development properties are purchased in property auctions which need further inquiries. Solicitors therefore suggest purchasers to decide on a residential lawyer before the date of the auction for a thorough review of the sellers legal pack.

Subsequently, immediately after the day of bidding your Homeward Legal conveyancing lawyer is thoroughly geared up to concluding all of the legal work inside as short a time frame as conventionally required .


Does the Forty Hill property lawyer report back to me about the cost of the council tax for a Band A house prior to completion?


The property solicitor will consult with the governing South Gloucestershire local council to ascertain the applicable council tax charges which will be added to the conveyancer's title report. The latest council tax charges for homes in Forty Hill are detailed online at the South Gloucestershire local authority site. At the time of writing on 05 August 2012 band rates are:

If I plan to purchase in the parish of St George Hanover Square, do we need a chancel search?


Your property lawyer might recommend that a chancel search be taken out. Although some Parochial Church Councils have determined to exact chancel repairs on the owners of affected property, a conveyancing solicitor cannot verify that a parish which has not been subject to chancel liability in the past will remain liability-free for new owners. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.


How early should I find a conveyancer to act on our purchase?


With few exceptions, as soon as possible. Prompt instruction of a conveyancing solicitor to act for you on your Forty Hill transaction can limit the risk of the transaction aborting.


Does the Forty Hill conveyancing solicitor conduct any conveyancing searches on the Gloucestershire forties detached property I am buying?


Standard procedure is to get these searches - Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search and Environmental and occasionally specific local searches, like a Company Searches.
