Q.

I am trying to find a fixed rate conveyancing quote in Hartfield. Will I get a quote or and estimate?

A.

The confusion over this point catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing'. However extra fees will be included in small print. Excited buyers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. The quote must also state the disbursements to be paid. Additional costs should be fair and clearly defined.

Q.

In regards to the fact that 2012 was second wettest year since records began, we are worried that flood searches might not be detailed enough?

A.

Conveyancing searches carried out by the property lawyer in Hartfield will also include a far more specialist flood search if the risk warrants it.

If you are still worried why not try to approach a neighbour or local resident.

Q.

We are buying in Hartfield with The Woolwich, what do I need to consider?

A.

In some cases, lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel'. This can mean increased legal costs for property buyers. We can act on behalf of the majority of mortgage lenders so that the buyer will not have to pay legal costs to your lender's solicitor.

Q.

How much can our searches cost?

A.

With Homeward Legal's conveyancing service, Hartfield clients are required to pay no more than £249 for searches.

Q.

At what point is it appropriate to find a conveyancer?

A.

The straightforward answer is, instructing as soon as possible is wise, as there are various tasks that can be performed straight away. Early instruction of a solicitor can reduce any chance of the sale or purchase falling though.

Q.

Is homewardlegal.co.uk set up to 28 day completions on the legal conveyancing of residential property auction properties in Hartfield?

A.

Yes - Our solicitors and licensed conveyancers in Hartfield frequently do the legal work for bidders at auction. Lawyers tend to recommend purchasers to decide on a fast solicitor in advance of the date of the auction to allow sufficient time for a detailed review of the property's legal title. After the property auction the lawyer is utterly ready for briskly finishing the purchase within the limited time as required .

Q.

Would acquiring a home buyers survey be advisable when purchasing any property?

A.

It is heavily suggested that property purchasers book a home buyer survey. Buyers should be aware that there are many issues that affect a property, that a lender's valuation survey, for example, will not cover. These can include dry rot or failed double glazing.

Q.

For a fast conveyancing process to buy a £383,000 residence, how can we speed things up?

A.

It is well established that finding a communicative property lawyer is the key to faster conveyancing. You should consider:

  • Do they offer 'instant' online quotes?
  • What methods of communication do they use? Posting documents can adds days of waiting to a purchase.
  • Do they order searches immediately?
