Q.

How do we get low cost conveyancing in Godmanchester?

A.

This catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many conveyancers promote so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately additional fees can pad the final bill. The conveyancing quote should also clearly state any disbursements. Extra fees should be fair. They only be applied if your solicitor must perform additional tasks in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

When do you need to get a conveyancing solicitor in Godmanchester?

A.

If you choose a firm with 'no move, no fee' protection, the faster you instruct the better. Early instruction of a solicitor to act on your Godmanchester sale or purchase for a sale can mean that documents can be prepared earlier, considerably accelerating the whole process, whereas if you are buying your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed.

Q.

What specific conveyancing searches should the Godmanchester property solicitor get when acting on a Godmanchester flat?

A.

The normal procedure is to obtain Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search and Environmental and perhaps less common searches, which may include a Bankruptcy Search (K16).

Q.

As a consequence of the fact that 2012 was second wettest year since on record we are wondering if flood searches aren't thorough enough?

A.

A good Godmanchester conveyancer will advise you to get additional in depth environmental searches if the first search determines a risk of flooding in Godmanchester.

You may be able to also contact a local resident for that further insight if still concerned.

My flatmate and I am hopefully going to sell our co-owned mansion flat at a nearby auction, does Homeward Legal any extra fast Godmanchester conveyancers ?

Q.

What can a Godmanchester property lawyer advise if the building I want to buy is in a Huntingdonshire council conservation area that has inappropriate roof antenna installed?

A.

Local authority enquiries carried out by your solicitor in the process of the conveyancing should verify whether the property is in a conservation area proof of consent for alterations will be required.

Should no authority consents be supplied, your conveyancing solicitor will recommend the best alternatives, which include purchasing an indemnity policy or getting retrospective consent from the appropriate local authority.

Q.

Halifax is going to be our lender, is there anything I need to be aware of?

A.

Some lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel'. Homeward Legal are able to act for many UK mortgage lenders.

Can we find out if the property we are buying is in a conservation area?

A.
