Q.

I need to find fixed rate conveyancing. Will I get a quote or and estimate?

A.

Both high-street and online firms promote supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately additional charges will be included in the terms of engagement which buyers may have not read carefully Any additional charges which are listed in terms and conditions should be fair and clearly defined. They be applicable if the conveyancer must perform additional tasks in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Any disbursements to be paid should also be included on a conveyancing quote. Get a quote using the Homeward Legal quote calculator for the property you are buying.

Q.

We are buying on a recently-developed brownfield site. Is the soil likely to remain contaminated?

A.

Q.

What causes the sale conveyancing process to be so delayed?

A.

The legal work involved in buying or selling Hingham property could be obstructed. Homeward Legal understand how unnecessarily stressful these delays can be and work hard to curtail their impact by using fast search providers.

Q.

When we are buying near a church in Hingham, do you need to get a chancel search?

Where land in Hingham was once owned by a lay-rector, new owners of that property may be obliged to pay for repairs to older church buildings. Some names or words such as 'abbey' give an indication of a property's history, and thus whether chancel liability may apply. Church lands in the area include St Andrew.

Q.

The estate agent has offered a property solicitor. Should we use this firm?

A.

It is common practice for agents in Lake to refer a conveyancer. These referrals need to be considered carefully, as an agent may choose the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the law firm with the best reputation.

Q.

Are there many areas of conservation in Hingham?

A.

Conservation areas delineate areas of 'special architectural and historic interest'. Your conveyancing solicitor will be able to advise further and discuss what specific restrictions are in place, regarding specific conservation areas in Hingham.

Q.

Is Homeward Legal able to complete fast the conveyancing for residential property auction properties in Hingham?

Q.

Will it be necessary to get a chancel search if we are intending to purchase in the parish of Honing, near Hingham?

A.

Whether you are buying a home in Hingham or elsewhere in the county, the conveyancer may suggest that a chancel search is ordered. Through some parish councils have determined to impose chancel repairs on the owners, there is no guarantee that a parish where chancel repair fees have not been paid previously will continue to be free from liability, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.
