Q.

There are lots of 'cheap' offers, but how do we find a good one? We need a fixed rate conveyancing quote in Hertford.

A.

Numerous solicitors promote supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes, however additional charges will be included in the small print. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

We are planning to buy in Hertford. Are there any areas of conservation in the area?

A.

Conservation areas detail neighbourhoods of 'special architectural and historic interest'. The local authority will be able to offer more information about local conservation areas, and the solicitor handling your purchase address the impact buying in a conservation area may have.

Q.

Why could conveyancing take weeks to complete?

A.

Conveyancing can be drawn out. Homeward Legal know how stressful these delays can be and do our best to reduce the effect of these delays by proactively handling all enquiries.

Q.

The agent has referred a lawyer whom they usually use. Is it advisable to instruct them?

A.

It is common practice for estate agents to suggest a conveyancer. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, some agents choose the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.

Q.

Might our conveyancing quote cover any hidden charges?

A.

We never hide any hidden charges to carry out standard conveyancing. Sometimes a large volume of additional work is required, such as purchase of the freehold, but your conveyancing solicitor will make you aware of these.

Q.

I am buying a period maisonette in one of the Hertford conservation area. How do we locate data on the state of repair of the Hertford conservation area?

A.

English Heritage, a government body, now maintain details in relation to the state of conservation areas in addition to the trend of the area. Conservation areas in Hertford are nominated by the local East Hertfordshire planning authority, who police things like area development to the halting of poorly maintained public spaces.

Q.

In what ways can a conveyancing solicitor in Hertford report back on the risk of flooding in the Hertford area for an investment property I am buying?

A.

Your solicitor will apply for formal conveyancing searches that incorporate Hertford area flood risk data.
