Q.

How do we find a cheap solicitor quote to own a residence?

A.

Both high-street and online conveyancers offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. However extra costs are often hiding in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Charges included in the terms should be fair. They only apply in cases where the solicitor is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Any disbursements ought to be defined on the quote. Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

Q.

Do we need a house survey for our house purchase?

A.

We suggest that you order a house survey when you intend to buy in Kempshott. Buyers should be aware that there are many defects that have a negative impact on a property, which will not be covered by the legal work, including corrosion of pipework and ground movement.

Q.

We are buying in Kempshott on a new development brownfield land. What should we do regarding chromium soil contamination?

Q.

Halifax will be our lender, what will I need to be aware of?

A.

In some cases, lenders are now limiting the firms who can act for them, potentially creating higher legal costs for buyers. Homeward Legal will act on behalf of all major lenders.
