Q.

I need the cheapest conveyancing solicitors. What are the risks?

A.

Both high-street and online firms advertise supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes. Often extra costs will be included in small print that buyers often do not check. Extra charges listed in terms of engagement should be clearly defined. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the solicitors' fees, based on the property you are buying.

Q.

How much can my conveyancing searches cost?

A.

The cost of searches will vary. Searches are disbursements.

Q.

What can contaminate land in Hurst. Are they a concern?

A.

Land will be contaminated by a range of factors caused by man and by nature, like other sources of contaminated land. An environmental search should offer more information.

Q.

The internet is full of a multitude of books giving details on by passing the solicitor e.g. Straightforward Guide to the Process of Conveyancing by Frances James. Do I need to spend money on a Hurst property lawyer ?

There are absolutely no arguments why a buyer cant opt to conceivably complete the legal and technical work without a dedicated conveyancer in Hurst. That said, a conveyancer takes care of a long list of exercises such as drafting contracts or interpreting management accounts which are better done by someone with a qualified professional.

Above all DIY lawyers do not have acceptable insurance which solicitors are obliged to pay for.

Q.

Should you get searches for chancel liability if I am buying close to parish grounds in Hurst?

A.

In Hurst, some owners can be required to subsidise upkeep of a local church. Owners who have bought property prior to 2003 may be totally unaware that a liability exists if a chancel search was not carried out. Churches in Hurst include St Nicholas.

Q.

What is gazumping?

A.

Gazumping is not uncommon in Hurst and describes circumstances where a house seller approves an offer, only to refuse it, opting for a better offer. There is almost always a risk of gazumping. Consider instructing a solicitor as soon as you can to reduce the chance of your offer being gazumped.

Q.

Platform Home Loans is our mortgage lender, what will I need to consider?

A.

Over the last two years, some lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel', potentially creating higher legal costs for property purchasers. We, however, can act for the vast majority of lenders in the UK so that you will not be required to pay legal fees for your lender's solicitor.

Q.
