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.

Which mortgage lenders in Hertford do you work with?

A.

The Homeward Legal group work beside many lenders. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Hertford, including Link Finance, Tooke House/20 Bull Plain, Hertford, SG14 1DT, Ingram Finance Ltd, 6 Millbridge, Hertford, SG14 1PY, and Carlton Rhodes Associates, Raynham House/65a Ware Rd, Hertford, SG13 7ED.

Q.

We are aiming to purchase a home, do we need 'conveyancing searches'?

A.

Searches are an accepted set of queries carried out on behalf of the purchaser, including a limestone search. These searches do give much needed information and context, but refer to the legal condition of the property's title.

Q.

Will your conveyancing solicitor in Hertford carry out any searches on the Hertfordshire Sixties semi-detached property I want to buy?

A.

The routine conveyancing protocol will be to obtain the following Local Authority Search, Drainage and Water Search and Environment Search and, depending on certain criteria, specific local searches e.g. a Chancel Repair Liability Search.

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.

When should you get a solicitor in Hertford?

A.

Whether you are buying or selling in Hertford, earlier is preferable. Instructing a conveyancing solicitor to handle your Hertford conveyancing early for a sale enables paperwork can be prepared, even before a buyer is found, whereas if you are buying your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed.

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.

I am purchasing a rectory in Buckland. Will we need a chancel search?

A.

A property solicitor could advise that a chancel search is ordered, whichever parish where the property being bought is located. Chancel repair can be imposed on the current owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils have previously chosen not to do so, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.
