Q.

We need to find a cheap solicitor to purchase a freehold property. What do I need to check for?

A.

Various law firms promote so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing', but additional costs are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms of engagement, left unregarded by busy buyers Any additional charges listed in the terms needs to be fair.

Q.

In a few weeks I am shortly going to move out of our period building in Hockley into a new home in Harold Wood , what is the best point to appoint a home removal company?

A.

Most solicitors tend to recommend that home buyers and sellers put off organising removals until formal exchange of contracts because typically the firm moving date will not have been set. For a local Essex company A Man With A Van, Northcroft/New Park Rd, Hockley, SS5 5JX Tel: 01702 205320.

Q.

Do we need to make use of the solicitor that commonly works with by the estate agent in Bideford?

A.

It is common for estate agents to recommend a solicitors firm. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, an agent may select the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the law firm with the best reputation.

Q.

Is homewardlegal.co.uk set up to act quickly on property auction conveyancing in Hockley?

A.

In fact we are familiar with local and national auctions and often act for buyers at auction. It is prudent for bidders to choose a SRA regulated lawyer as fast as possible to allow enough time for a title report of the legal pack well before the day of the auction. Following the property auction date your instructed property lawyer is fully focused on finishing the legal work inside a month as typically required .

Q.

Is it important that we get a chancel search? I am buying a residence in Hockley.

A.

In Hockley, some owners can be required to fund maintenance of nearby church property. Following a change in the law, interest over any affected land in Hockley must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. Church properties in the area include St Peter & St Paul's Church and Wilnecote S.Matthew.

Q.

Do many areas of conservation in Hockley have the potential to affect our house?

A.

Buyers in Hockley should be aware of several local areas of conservation. You may wish to contact the local council if you have specific questions, but your property solicitor will investigate this in detail.

Q.

Unexpected personal circumstances mean we want to exchange contracts on the conveyancing process on our jointly owned maisonette within 5 weeks, do you have fast solicitors in Hockley ?

Our chosen solicitors take a take charge approach to conducting the conveyance. With us, conveyancers always communicate end to end throughout the chain property chain (sequence of buyers and sellers) and have invested in the latest integrated and technology systems to complete your house move as quickly as possible.

Q.

What is the explanation why the sale conveyancing process requires weeks?

A.

The legal work needed to sell or purchase a property will sometimes suffer setbacks for a variety of reasons. Sometimes, these reasons are unfortunately beyond the conveyancing solicitor's influence. We endeavour to reduce the consequences of these delays by pushing all parties involved. Delays may include the time taken to return management information.
