A.

Q.

How do I find low cost conveyancing?

A.

Lack of clarity over this point catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many firms claim to offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Often extra charges may increase the final bill. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

Is tenancy agreement vetting a fee or disbursement?

A.

A conveyancing quote should clearly state all fees and disbursements. This charge is a fee not a disbursement, and should be included in your quote.

Q.

May charges for the conveyancing cover any extra costs?

A.

We do not charge any extra, hidden costs for sale or purchase conveyancing.

Q.

Handling the legal work by bypassing a Gillingham conveyancing solicitor appears to be becoming possible as a buyer and seller of a home. Would it really be reckless ?

A.

Legally speaking there is no reason at all why you shouldn't look after the legal work yourself.

In reality however, a lawyer carries out a long list of functions such as chasing replies to requisitions or verifying identities of transacting parties many of which need training.

Furthermore lawyers always be covered by the appropriate indemnity insurance that ultimately protects you in the event of any errors.

Q.

Are your house conveyancing solicitors experienced enough to act quickly on the legal conveyancing of property auction properties in Gillingham?

A.

Yes - In fact we work closely with auctioneers and often get instructed by sellers at auction. Homeward Legals panel of conveyancing lawyers have acted for countless vendors at local Gillingham property auctions including Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London, Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.

Canny buyers at auction tend to choose the lawyer as soon as possible for a detailed report of the auction legal papers well in advance of the date of the auction. Immediately following the date of the auction your experienced lawyer is completely able to concentrate on finishing the legal work inside 4 weeks as required .

Q.

What can a Gillingham property solicitor do if the maisonette we am buying is within a local authority conservation area and has unlawful removal of chimney stacks added?

A.

Your instructed conveyancing solicitor is required to confirm whether the property is within a designated conservation area and whether any alterations have requisite permissions from the North Dorset planning authority.

Q.

How soon do you need to instruct a conveyancer to act for us?

A.

In the vast majority of cases, as soon as possible, as the legal work can begin immediately. Early instruction of a solicitor can reduce the likelihood of your transaction aborting.

Q.

Should we get a homebuyer report?

A.

We suggest that all buyers arrange a property surveyor when you intend to buy in Gillingham. A wide range of concerns can negatively affect a property, for example subsidence. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.
