Commuting from the area? ;

Highworth's closest train station is Kemble at 14 miles. Highworth's nearest airport is Kidlington, Oxford Airport (22 miles).

Fairford is the most convenient hospital.

Q.

How do I get affordable conveyancing?

A.

Many firms purport to offer cheap conveyancing, however extra fees are often hiding in the solicitor's terms. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

We have found an increasing number on and offline books all about by passing the solicitor. Do we necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Highworth ?

A.

Should you wish to try you can conceivably do the bulk of the your own conveyancing without using an experienced Highworth property lawyer .

The truth is however that a lawyer in Highworth handles a huge number of jobs such as chasing mortgage offer and interpreting management accounts most of which need a qualified solicitor. Above all DIY lawyers are not covered by applicable insurance cover that every legal practices are made responsible to take out.

Q.

What areas of conservation are there in Highworth?

A.

Conservation areas safeguard areas designated as being of architectural or historic interest. You may wish to contact the council for further information, but your solicitor will address this during the house-buying process.

Q.

The estate agent has referred the lawyer whom they usually use. Must we instruct this firm?

If you instruct a solicitor through this route, you the agent is able to use their influence to reduce delays in the conveyancing process. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, an agent may choose the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

If we plan to purchase near Highworth, in the parish of Garsdon with Lea and Cleverton, do we need a chancel search?

A.

The solicitor should confirm that a chancel search is ordered, irrespective of the parish where the property being bought is found. In older areas of Highworth, chancel repair may be imposed on the owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have not imposed the same liability on the last owners, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.

Q.

I want to find fast Highworth solicitors - is that your company?

A.

Our panel of solicitors have a thoroughly proactive approach when carrying out the conveyance as fast as possible.

By using modern information technology and conveyancing case management systems .

We provide you with home movers a CQS property lawyer prepared to communicate with everyone in the home buyer and seller chain including landlords, to fulfil a fast exchange.

Q.

Property solicitors in Highworth carry out varied searches if acting for a property buyer - what actual searches?

A.

If applying for a mortgage, your lender requires you to the following Local Authority Search, Drainage Search and Environmental,, and possibly specific searches for example Index Map Search (SIM).

Q.

Bank of Scotland is our mortgage lender, is there anything I need to consider?

A.

Buyers should be aware that, over the last two years, some lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel'. This can mean higher legal costs for buyers. Homeward Legal, however, will act on behalf of most lenders in the UK to ensure that you will not need to pay an additional fee for your lender's solicitor.
