Q.

Although there are lots of £99 fixed quotes online, how do we find a reputable one? I am looking for discount conveyancing.

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many buyers and sellers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned, and many solicitors claim to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing, however additional costs may be added into the solicitor's terms of engagement. Charges found in the terms needs to be fair. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Friday Hill conveyancing solicitors conduct a variety of searches when they are acting for a home purchaser - what specific ones?

A.

If purchasing and obtaining a mortgage the mortgage lender expects a solicitor to get at least the following Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search and Environment Search and perhaps specific searches, like a Chancel Repair Liability Search.

Q.

Our local agent has put forward a conveyancing solicitor. Should I instruct this solicitor?

A.

Estate agent recommendations are a common route to find a solicitor. However, if they are paid a referral fee, an agent may select the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.

Q.

In relation to the terrible flooding in the UK in April 2012 I am anxious that conveyancing and environmental searches might not be sufficient?

A.

A qualified conveyancing solicitor in Friday Hill will suggest that you apply for flood risk searches (Landmark database search) if the standard searches identifies a local Friday Hill flood risk.

For extra assurance it may be sensible to contact a neighbour of the property.

Q.

Does your solicitors firm conduct auction conveyancing in Friday Hill?

A.

Yes - Homeward Legal is very competent with residential property auction protocols. It is not unusual for more complicated to convey auction lots e. g. development properties, are bought at auction which tend to want increased inquiries. Solicitors therefore strongly recommend buyers to formally instruct a conveyancing lawyer in advance of the auction day to allow enough time for a thorough investigation of the auction legal papers.

Subsequently, immediately after the auction day arrives your experienced lawyer is utterly focused on concluding the conveyancing within a as tight time frame as typically required .

Q.

What will contaminate land in Friday Hill. Are they an issue?

A.

Several contaminants caused by natural and human-influenced issues can affect land in Friday Hill, and an environmental search will reveal the extent to which a specific residence can be impacted by contaminants like petroleum and fuel sites.

Q.

We are buying on a brownfield site. Could the soil be contaminated by industrial waste?

A.

Metal contamination may have occurred throughout Friday Hill, but where substances causing significant pollution of surface waters or groundwater are found the land will be defined as 'contaminated'. Other sources of contaminated land include perchlorate.

Q.

For our mortgage lender, we have chosen Bradford and Bingley - what do we need to know?

A.

Recently, a number of lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel'. For home buyers, this can result in significantly increased legal costs. Homeward Legal will act for most UK mortgage lenders, ensuring that an additional conveyancing solicitor will not be required to act for your lender.
