Q.

How do we get a cheap solicitor in Hermitage to buy a home?

A.

Both high-street and online conveyancers purport to offer so-called cheap conveyancing. However additional fees are often hiding in the small print. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Should I select the solicitor named by the estate agent?

Many agents in Lower Sunbury have arrangements with solicitors where they refer clients, however, these referrals need to be considered carefully, as an agent may choose whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the most appropriate choice.

Q.

Do you have good solicitors that deal with the legal conveyancing of residential property auction properties in Hermitage?

Yes - Homeward Legal is very competent with auction buyers and sellers. Conventionally specialist lots are bought in property auctions and these will want increased exploration. Solicitors therefore advocate that buyers choose a fast lawyer in advance of the auction for a full review of the sellers documents.

Immediately following the property auction your Homeward Legal lawyer is wholly ready for finishing the legal side of things within the reduced time frame as usually required by the terms if sale.

Q.

What type of checks in relation to the risk of floods in the Berkshire region will the lawyer in Hermitage conduct?

A.

A necessary component in the legal due diligence process involves the lawyer applying for environmental searches that set out some details in relation to Hermitage flood risk area. Also as an additional measure the conveyancing solicitor in Hermitage could advocate a more involved (e.g. Landmark) flood risk search.

Q.

I am on a tight deadline and need guarantee fast conveyancing, how could we speed up the conveyancing process?

A.

Contacting a proactive and experienced property lawyer is crucial to a fast transaction. There are various jobs you, as the buyer, can also do to get moving sooner. These include:

  • calling or emailing your property lawyer, and chase them if you suspect any delays
  • promptly completing and return any forms
  • organising your finances

Q.

Is it recommended that I get a chancel search? We are buying a maisonette near parish land in Hermitage.

A.

In Hermitage, some owners can be required to contribute towards the cost of repairs to nearby church land. Terms used in a property's name, like 'rectory', may indicate chancel liability. A conveyancing solicitor will be able to advise further. Churches in this area where chancel liability may apply include Holy Trinity and St Mary.
