Q.

How do we find a discount conveyancing quote?

A.

Numerous firms claim to offer so-called cheap conveyancing. Often additional fees are frequently hidden in the small print. Your conveyancing quote should, in addition, define any disbursements.Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

I am buying in Harleston. Are there many designated conservation areas in the area?

With around 9,000 such areas across the country, the areas located near Harleston will include a range of conservation areas. These restrictions can result in the buyer inheriting liability of unauthorised changes, but the benefits will include an increase in local property values.

Q.

What does a Harleston conveyancing solicitor recommend if the building we am buying is in a South Norfolk council conservation area which appears to have ugly PVC windows installed?

A.

South Norfolk local authority Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search conducted by a property lawyer should see whether the property is inside a conservation area and evidence of permission for changes to the property will be supplied.Should no necessary permissions be produced, the solicitor will recommend all options such as seeking cover from an indemnity insurance policy or requesting retrospective consent from the council.

Q.

In about 6 weeks we are hoping to move out of our terraced building on the outskirts of Harleston into our next dwelling in Fakenham . At what point to book a home removal company?

A.

The best advice is for buyers to delay instructing the removals company until both sides have confirmed a formal move date that generally occurs once final contracts are signed.

Q.

At what point should we get a solicitor?

A.

Simply, as soon as possible. Prompt instruction of a conveyancing solicitor to act for you on your Harleston transaction can limit the risk of the transaction falling through.

Q.

Is a Professional Indemnity fee a disbursement or fee?

A.

A quote will list all disbursements and fees. This cost, for example, is a fee not a disbursement, and will normally be included in a quote.

Q.

Harleston solicitors conduct official conveyancing searches when they are instructed to act for a purchase client, but which actual searches?

A.

If you are getting a mortgage the lender requires you to at least specific searches, including these searches - Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search and Environment Search, and possibly area-specific searches such as Planning and local information.

Q.

The lender will be Kent Reliance, is there anything we need to be aware of?

A.

Prior to recent changes, most solicitors could act for the majority lenders. Recently, a number of lenders have limited the number of solicitors who can act for them. Homeward Legal, however, are able to act for all major mortgage lenders so that you will not be required to pay any additional legal fees to your lender's solicitor.
