Q.

How do we get a cheap solicitor in Fulford to sell a home?

A.

Various solicitors purport to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately additional charges are often hiding in small print. These terms are often ignored by excited sellers and buyers, eager to get underway. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

How many weeks does it take my assigned conveyancer to accomplish the conveyancing process for the lower floor of home we are thinking of buying?

A.

The process can take anywhere from 1 month to 12 weeks, which can be hampered by any number of factors like the speed of the seller's property lawyer, or the completeness of the management information.

Q.

How is Fulford contaminated land identified when buying a house?

A.

Fulford property is contaminated by numerous factors caused by man and by nature. Contaminants including hazardous and regulated installations or landfill sites will be considered as part of the environmental searches.

Q.

Flood risk searches may be standard procedure but considering current events e g the extensive flooding last year in the Midlands are they the best way to identify sufficient information about the Fulford flood risk area?

A Fulford conveyancing solicitor will consider include conveyancing and environmental searches if the enviro search spots a any kind of risk of flooding in Fulford.

It could be worth trying to also get in touch with a next door neighbour for added local information.

Q.

We are purchasing with Rooftop Mortgages - is there anything I need to be aware of?

Some lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel'. For purchasers, this can result in significantly greater legal costs. Homeward Legal can act for all major UK mortgage lenders, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

What does the Fulford property solicitor advise if the home I am buying is situated in a York conservation area and turns out to have incongruous PVC windows fitted to it?

A.

The local authority Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search carried out by the solicitor should establish whether the property is within a designated conservation area and any evidence of planning authority consent for modifications will be supplied.

Q.

What makes sale conveyancing work to take weeks to complete?

A.

The legal work required to buy or sell a house or flat could be delayed for a variety of reasons. Sometimes, these reasons are unhappily beyond the solicitors' influence. We work hard to reduce the cost of these delays whenever feasible by, for example, ordering searches as early as possible.
