A.

Many online and high street law firms claim to offer cheap conveyancing quotes, however additional costs can increase the solicitor's invoice. Fees listed in terms of engagement should be fair. Our online quote calculator will generate an accurate quote for your transaction.

Q.

We are on a very limited budget. Will doing the conveyancing on a DIY basis without the help of a lawyer in Highbridge possibly save any money?

A.

There is no reason why a home mover cant go down that route and look after the bulk of the legal work without the help of a specialist property lawyer in Highbridge. That said, a property lawyer carries out a long list of skilled tasks ranging from chasing replies to requisitions or interpreting the lease which need experience.

Above all else have a go conveyancers will be working without relevant cover which legal practices are compelled to carry.

Q.

At what stage should one organise a removals firm?

A.

The most sensible course of action is for home movers to put off booking a removal company until such time as everyone has formally agreed a formal moving date that occurs once contracts have exchanged. Local removals companies include Your Move Removals, Fourwinds Huntspill Road, Highbridge, TA9 3DE Tel: 01278 792858 or Leakers Removals & Container Storage Ltd, Unit 1A Brue Way, Highbridge, TA9 4AW Call: 01278 795549.

Q.

What can a Highbridge conveyancing lawyer advise if the property we are intending to buy is in a conservation area in Sedgemoor local authority and has unsympathetic dormer windows fitted to it?

A.

Sedgemoor planning authority Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search conducted by your Highbridge conveyancing solicitor should determine if the property is inside a designated conservation area and any evidence of authorisation for additions to the property will be requested.

Q.

Will it be possible to make haste and exchange on the selling of our home within 6 weeks, do you any really fast solicitors in Highbridge ?

A.

Our conveyancing property lawyers take an extremely active approach to carrying out the necessary legal work for customers.

Homeward Legal always introduce you to conveyancing solicitors who are selected because they attempt to communicate through the whole of the buyer and seller chain .

Q.

How can we guard against getting gazumped?

A.

Gazumping is common across England and Wales and describes when a property owner approves one buyer's offer, only to refuse it in favour of a better offer. Because acceptance of an offer is not binding on the seller until exchange of contracts, there is a chance of being gazumped. The first step in reducing the chance that gazumping will effect you is to instruct your property solicitor as early as possible.

Q.

Which specific searches does my Highbridge conveyancer apply for on a Highbridge flat?

A.

The conventional conveyancing protocol will be to obtain the following Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search (Con29DW), Environmental and Tin Search and, depending on certain criteria, less common searches such as Chancel Check.
