Q.

I need to find the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Henbury. What do we need to check for?

A.

Numerous law firms advertise cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra fees are often hiding in small print. Excited home owners, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Extra fees included in the solicitor's terms should be reasonable and clear and be applicable solely where the conveyancer must perform additional tasks on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.

If land is found to be contaminated, can we have the soil easily remedied?

A.

Remediation of contaminated land is possible is some cases, although it can be expensive. Contact Shenton's Garden Supplies, The Public Weighbridge Chelford Rd, Henbury, Macclesfield, SK10 4RS for more detail.

Q.

There are a number of on and offline documents going into great depth on doing the legal work yourself. In which case, do I want to use a conveyancing solicitor in Henbury ?

A.

There is absolutely no argument why a seller cant adopt a DIY approach and undertake the bulk of the legal process without the help of a trained conveyancer in Henbury. That said, a property solicitor in Henbury is in charge of a huge array of roles from including interpreting

replies to enquiries or apportioning service charges many of which require adequate training. Essentially do it yourself conveyancers take huge risks in operating without acceptable cover which practicing firms and their solicitors are liable to be required to carry.

Q.

We have requested a conveyancing quote from you. Will there be any hidden fees?

A.

No. Homeward Legal never hide any hidden extra fees under any circumstances.

Q.

Why might the conveyancing work be so delayed? Is it not simply form-filling?

A.

Conveyancing may be drawn out. We strive to minimise the cost of these delays whenever feasible by driving the sale or purchase forward. Delays include issues elsewhere in a chain.

Q.

Would the fixtures and fittings list light switches?

A.

Purchasers are frequently confused by the lack of detail regarding which fixtures and fittings will be included in a sale. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.

Q.

Does my Henbury property lawyer inform me about the amount to be paid of the council tax on a Band H apartment before exchange?

A.

A lawyer will speak to the appropriate Bristol local authority to find out the current council tax charges which will subsequently be included in the report on title. Council tax charges for properties in Henbury are listed on the Bristol council site. As at, 14 February 2013, rates are as follows:

  • Band A - £1,047.00
  • Band B - £1,221.00
  • Band C - £1,395.00
  • Band D - £1,570.00
  • Band E - £1,919.00
  • Band F - £2,267.00
  • Band G - £2,616.00
  • Band H - £3,140.00

Q.

Is a property survey necessary if we are purchasing a property, irrespective of its condition?

A.

We recommend that most purchasers instruct a RICS surveyor if buying in Henbury. It is a fact that there are many defects that can affect a property, for example unsafe chimney circulation or corrosion of pipework.
