Q.

How do I find the best rates for conveyancing for a £147k property?

A.

Many home owners seeking discount conveyancing are caught out by the lure of very low conveyancing rates, and many conveyancers purport to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. However additional fees will be included in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Excited home owners, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Additional costs should be fair. They be applicable solely where the lawyer must perform additional tasks in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

My estate agent has offered the conveyancing. Will it be easier to use this firm?

A.

Estate agent referrals are a not uncommon route to find a solicitor, however, these referrals should be compared to other online or local firms, as an agent may select the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.

Q.

The property seller has unfortunately added conspicuous dormer windows on the house in Hale which I think might break conservation area criteria

Your instructed solicitor will carry out searches establish whether the property is within a designated conservation area, and if so whether any modifications have the required permission from the local planning authority.

Q.

At what point do I need to find a conveyancing solicitor?

A.

The short answer is, the sooner the better, as the legal work can begin very early in the process. Early instruction of a solicitor to act on your Hale sale or purchase for a purchase may mean that your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed, or, if you are selling a property, paperwork can be prepared, even before a buyer is found.

Q.

Will my solicitor in Hale conduct personal or official searches on my home purchase?

A.

Your conveyancing solicitor will make a recommendation about the ideal type of search, depending on issues like lender requirements. For personal searches, the conveyancing solicitor may consider a search agent wit local experience for example Scout Legal Services a trading name of Mrs T Hinde, 58 Stanhope Road, Bowdon, Altrincham, Cheshire, WA14 3JL Tel: 0161 929 6936 Fax: 0161 929 6937

Q.

What length of time does it take my assigned conveyancing solicitor to conduct all of the conveyancing formalities on a terraced period home we are buying?

A.

The legal process can take anywhere from one month to three months, which can be affected by various issues such as the efficiency of the vendor's solicitor, or the speed of the local authority.

Q.

Is contaminated land in Hale an issue for many houses?

A.

Land is contaminated by several natural and human-influenced issues, and an environmental search will confirm that a property may be impacted by contaminants including landfill sites.

Q.

Are there many conservation areas in Hale?

A.

Conservation areas characterise neighbourhoods of historic or architectural significance. You may wish to contact the local council if you have specific questions, but your conveyancing solicitor will investigate the impact of conservation areas or other planning restrictions.
