Q.

How can we ensure our cheap quote is fixed? I need a low cost conveyancing quote in Goffs Oak.

A.

Numerous law firms claim to offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra charges are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms. Any extra fees found in terms and conditions ought to be reasonable.

Q.

May my property legal fees for my Goffs Oak move have any additional fees?

A.

Homeward Legal's solicitors will never charge any additional fees whatsoever. On occasion, a large volume of additional work is necessary, like a lease extension, . Any such fees would not be charged until you were made aware of the circumstances.

Q.

How is contaminated land in Goffs Oak identified?

A.

Residential property in Goffs Oak is contaminated by a wide range of environmental factors, like nearby electrical substations and sand or clay quarries. An environmental search should offer more information.

Q.

Is it necessary that I get a chancel search? I am purchasing on the same road as rectory grounds in Goffs Oak.

A.

Where land in Goffs Oak was once owned by a lay-rector, new owners of that property may be obliged to contribute towards repairs to a local church. Following the Land Registration Act 2002, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. The solicitor handling your conveyancing will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate. Church of England properties in Goffs Oak include St James.

Q.

Our mortgage lender is Harpenden Building Society, what will I need to know?

A.

Over the last two years, some lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel', which may result in greater legal costs for home buyers. We, however, will act on behalf of all major lenders in the UK.

Q.

How long on average should I expect it to take my designated conveyancing solicitor to finish the legal formalities on a semi detached Victorian home we hope to buy?

A.

The process can take anywhere from one month to 3 months depending on various issues e.g. the efficiency of the sellers solicitor, or the speed of the local authority.

Q.

Does your Goffs Oak property lawyer do any searches on the Hertfordshire thirties mid terrace bungalow I am intending to buy?

A.

The regular conveyancing protocol is to obtain Local Authority, Drainage Search (Con29DW or personal) and Environment Search, and possibly specific searches e.g. a Limestone Search.

Q.

We plan to buy a home in Aston. Is a chancel search appropriate?

A.

Whichever Goffs Oak parish you are purchasing in, a lawyer could advise a chancel search. Although some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have determined to exact chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, it is not possible to be certain that a parish where chancel repair fees have not been paid previously will not continue to be so.
