Q.

How do we get the best rates for conveyancing for a £281,000 house?

A.

Confusion over this topic affects many homeowners who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process. Many firms offer cheap conveyancing, but extra fees will be included in small print that homeowners often do not check. Any additional costs included in terms of engagement needs to be fair. They be applicable solely where the conveyancer is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

Is a home buyers survey sensible if we are purchasing residential property in Fulwell?

A.

Homeward Legal strongly advise that property purchasers book a house survey if purchasing in Fulwell. Many concerns can affect a property. These include cavity wall tie failure. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.

Q.

How can we verify that a property is in a conservation area?

Conservation areas qualify areas registered as being of 'special architectural and historic interest'. The local council will provide more details about local conservation areas, and the conveyancing solicitor handling your purchase should discuss what specific restrictions are in place.

Q.

How many weeks does it take for our lawyer to complete all of the legal process for an apartment in a new build home we hope to buy in Fulwell?

A.

Completion can take anywhere from a month to three months based on various things, like the efficiency of the sellers solicitor, or the completeness of the management information.

Q.

How much can the searches be?

A.

With a Homeward Legal solicitor, a purchase conveyancing client charged at most £249 for a standard search bundle. Searches are paid to a third party, and will not be included in the quoted conveyancing fees.

Q.

We are buying in Fulwell on a recently-developed brownfield site. Could the soil be contaminated by industrial waste?

A.

There are legislative rules in place to manage top-soil contamination. Other sources of contaminated land include industrial storage.

Q.

Can you confirm which Fulwell lenders you work with. Which panels are you a member of?

A.

We can work with the majority of lenders listed with the Council of Mortgage Lenders. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Fulwell, like Approved Mortgage Solutions Ltd, Business & Innovation Centre/Wearfield, Sunderland Enterprise Park, Sunderland, SR5 2TA, and Jackson Potter, 109 Sea Rd, Sunderland, SR6 9BN.

Q.

We are buying a newly-constructed home. Do we need conveyancing searches?

A.

Searches are an accepted collection of queries ordered on behalf of the purchaser, and refer to issues with the property's title.
