Q.

How can we ensure our cheap quote is fixed? We need to find an affordable conveyancing quote.

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many sellers and buyers paying out more than they anticipated in the end, and many solicitors advertise cheap conveyancing, but extra charges are often hiding in the small print. Excited sellers and buyers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Feeswhich are listed in terms of engagement should be clearly defined and only apply in cases where the conveyancer must perform additional tasks , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

Regarding the serious flooding in Leeds and across Yorkshire, we are anxious that environmental searches may not be thorough enough?

A.

Environmental searches conducted by your lawyer in Fulwood should also include a more informative search (Landmark) if the risk warrants it.

You may be able to contact a local resident for some further local information.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Fulwood?

Fulwood is located in Sheffield City Council, Town Hall, Pinstone Street, Sheffield, S1 2HH, phone: 0114 273 4567

Q.

What average time should I expect it to take my designated solicitor to exchange contracts all of the conveyancing work for the top floor of Victorian home?

A.

The legal process can take anywhere between a month and three months, contingent on a number of things, such as the speed of the vendor's property lawyer, or the completeness of the management information.

Q.

We have taken out a quote from you. Could there be any extra charges?

A.

No. We do not hide any hidden charges. Some solicitors' firms will give a low estimate, not an accurate quote, which they will not be required to adhere to.

Q.

Will we need a survey for our house purchase?

A.

Homeward Legal advise that all purchasers in Fulwood book an inspection. A wide range of defects can affect a property, such as roof spread. Such issues will not be considered during the conveyancing work itself.

Q.

Should we employ the solicitors firm who works with by our estate agent in Admaston?

A.

The Admaston agent will often refer a conveyancing firm. Such referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, including online or local firms, as the agent may recommend the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.

Q.

Will your solicitor in Fulwood carry out any searches on the Lancashire forties detached property I am buying?

A.

When you are getting a mortgage a mortgage lender will expect a solicitor to get at least the following Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW) and Environmental, and, depending on certain criteria, specific searches, which may include a Official Search of Whole or Part without Priority (OS3).
