Q.

How do we find the best rates for conveyancing for a £651k home?

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many buyers paying out more than they anticipated in the end, and many solicitors promote supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes. However extra fees are often hiding in the small print. Busy, stressed buyers ignore these terms at their peril. Our online calculator will create an accurate quote for your buy.

Q.

Our estate agent has put forward the lawyer whom they usually use. Must we use this firm?

A.

An agent in Silverstone will be able to pressure a conveyancing firm they refer many clients to, and can therefore persuade a solicitor to wrap up the process as soon as possible, however, such referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, as some agents choose the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the law firm with the best reputation.

Q.

Are buyers frequently gazumped in Ironbridge?

A.

Gazumping describes when an offer is accepted, and then rejected, by the house seller, choosing instead 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. Instructing a property solicitor early should help to mitigate this risk.

Q.

I have taken out a quote from you. Are there any extra charges?

A.

Homeward Legal's solicitors never hide any hidden fees for your legal work. Our quotes offer an single, accurate fee.

Q.

How is Ironbridge contaminated land identified during conveyancing?

A.

A wide range of contaminants may impair land in Ironbridge, such as proximity to waste sites. An environmental search will give more information. Contamination in Ironbridge can be caused by local waste sites, such as Devil's Dingle Landfill, Buildwas Road, Shropshire, TF8 7DF.

Q.

What are fixtures and fittings?

A.

Commonly, there is no absolute definition of 'fixtures and fittings'. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction. This can make the completion of a fixtures and fitting form necessary.

Q.

Following recent news about the major flooding last year in the Midlands, we are thinking that environmental searches won't be detailed enough?

A.

A property lawyer in Ironbridge will get in depth flood risk searches if the standard searches identifies any kind of the local Ironbridge flood risk

It could be worth trying to also get in touch with a local resident for more comfort.

Q.

When we are buying in Ironbridge, do you recommend that I get a search for chancel liability?

A.

Owners of property in an area near nearby church land are expected to subsidise repairs, as a result of chancel repair liability. Indemnity policies can be arranged if chancel liability is likely to be enforced. The solicitor handling your conveyancing will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate. Ironbridge Church of England properties include St Luke.
