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?

A.

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.

How is contaminated land in Hermitage checked?

A.

Numerous of contaminants caused by environmental factors can impair residential property in Hermitage . Contaminants such as waste treatment sites in the area or nearby electrical substations should be reported on during conveyancing searches.

Q.

When in the process is it wise to find a conveyancer to handle our transaction?

A.

Whether you are buying or selling in Hermitage, the earlier in the process you can instruct a firm, the better. The legal work can then

start straight away. Promptly instructing a firm for your Hermitage transaction for a purchase may mean that you will the details of your Hermitage solicitor ready when you make an offer, or, if you are selling a property, prior to marketing the property, documents can be prepared to make it potentially more attractive to motivated buyers.

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.

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.

Q.

What causes purchase conveyancing to require months?

A.

Conveyancing will occasionally suffer setbacks. Homeward Legal appreciate how difficult it can be to face these and work hard to minimise the cost of these delays where feasible by proactively handling all enquiries. Reasons for delay can include slow third parties such as landlords or managing agents.

Q.

Do fixtures and fittings include things like lampshades?

A.

Generally speaking, fixtures are fixed to floors, walls and ceilings and fixtures are free-standing items, like bookcases. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.
