Q.

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

A.

Various property lawyers offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional charges are frequently hidden in the terms of engagement. Busy, stressed buyers and sellers ignore these terms at their peril. Additional fees listed in terms of engagement ought to be fair. Your quote should state costs to be paid to third parties, including search providers, (disbursments).Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

I am buying in Hampton. Are there any conservation areas?

A.

These areas cover streets and neighbourhoods of historical merit. You may wish to contact the local council for more detail, but your solicitor will investigate this in detail.

Q.

How soon is it appropriate to speak to a conveyancer in Hampton?

A.

With a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, the earlier in the process you can instruct a conveyancing firm, the better, as conveyancing involves several tasks that may be performed very early in the process. Instructing your solicitor earlier can limit the risk of your transaction falling through.

Q.

Will the Hampton lawyer conduct any searches on the London Victorian detached home we are buying?

A.

When you are getting a mortgage the building society of bank mandates particular searches, including the following Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environmental, as well as any area-specific searches for example Commons Registration Search.

Q.

I have requested a conveyancing quote from you. Are there any hidden fees?

A.

Homeward Legal's solicitors will not charge any hidden fees for any reason. Some solicitors only estimate conveyancing costs, which could be totally different to your final invoice.

Q.

What type of analysis about the potential risk of local flooding to properties in Richmond Upon Thames will my Hampton solicitor report back to us on for a buy to let maisonette I am hoping to buy?

A.

Your conveyancing lawyer will conduct environmental searches that should include Hampton historical flood risk information. A more flood history/risk search, such as the Landmark search, will sometimes be advocated by your Hampton lawyer if the results of the environmental search highlight a potential flood risk to the buy to let maisonette. On (20-Dec-12) there were flood alerts around the River Severn in Gloucestershire at the River Meon from Frogmore to Titchfield Haven.

Q.

What is gazumping?

A.

The practice of deciding to reject an offer which has been accepted after a new buyer makes a more attractive offer is referred to as gazumping. Although being gazumped is less common in a declining market, there will always be a risk. Instructing a law firm as early as possible is a key first step to reducing this risk.

Q.

We are purchasing a barn conversion in the parish of . Do we need a chancel search?

A.

The conveyancer may suggest that a chancel search is taken out. Although some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have determined to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of land subject to chancel liability, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish which has not imposed liability will continue to be free from liability, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.
