Q.

I need a solicitor that offers cheap conveyancing. Will I get a quote or and estimate?

A.

Many law firms offer so-called cheap conveyancing. Often extra fees can increase your final invoice. Any extra fees which are listed in terms and conditions should be clearly defined and be applied only where the conveyancer must perform additional tasks for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Based on the property you intend to buy, our online quote calculator will generate an accurate statement of conveyancing fees.

Q.

Conveyancing solicitors in Highams Park do some conveyancing searches if acting for a property purchaser, which actual ones?

A.

If applying for a mortgage a mortgage lender requires you to the following for properties in Highams Park: Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW) and Environment Search and, depending on certain criteria, area-specific searches such as Chancel Check.

Q.

I am buying a Highams Park property with Manchester Building Society - what will I need to be aware of?

A.

Some lenders are now reducing their 'solicitor panel'. This can mean increased legal costs for purchasers. We, fortunately, will act on behalf of most lenders to keep legal costs to a minimum.

A.

Our conveyancing property lawyers adopt an extremely active approach when carrying out the conveyancing work for home sellers as rapidly as possible.

Homeward Legals conveyancing property lawyers always communicate throughout the chain and that always use the latest document production and information technology systems to finish your house move fast.

Q.

Does your solicitors company carry out the conveyancing for auction properties in Highams Park?

A.

We are highly experienced with property auction conveyancing. Quite often hard to value lots such as residential investments are listed at auction which necessitate added investigation by the conveyancing lawyer. Lawyers therefore strongly encourage that bidders decide on a residential lawyer well before the property auction date to allow for a full investigation of the lot.

Subsequently, immediately after the property auction date the conveyancing solicitor will be geared up to finishing all of the legal work in as short a time frame as usually required .

Q.

I am buying a £688k, how is stamp duty rates calculated?

Q.

We plan to purchase a rectory in Haggerston St Mary. Should we order a chancel search?

A.

Your property lawyer may suggest that a chancel search be ordered, irrespective of the parish in which the house being purchased is found. Through some parish councils have taken the decision to impose chancel repairs on current owners, it is not possible to be certain that a parish where repair costs have not been paid before, that this will not automatically be the case for future owners. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.

Q.

In regards to the fact that 2 8m people are at risk from surface flooding I am wondering whether environmental searches won't be sufficient?

A.

A qualified Highams Park conveyancer will recommend that you include environmental searches if the environmental search flags up a significant risk Highams Park flood risk.
