The closest hospital for Ketton is Stamford & Rutland.

Q.

How do I get the cheapest conveyancing solicitors?

A.

This catches out many buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many firms advertise supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately additional charges are often hiding in the solicitor's terms. Busy, stressed buyers and sellers ignore these terms at their peril. Extra fees included in the terms should be fair. Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

Q.

Conveyancing and environmental searches may be conveyancing protocol but with recent events e g the extensive flooding in Sept 2012 in the East Midlands are they sufficient to ascertain sufficient information about the Ketton flood risk area?

A.

The solicitor in Ketton will recommend that you also get property environmental searches if the environmental searches spots a Ketton flood risk.

It could be worth trying to converse with a local resident for that extra confidence.

Q.

We are buying on a Ketton brownfield site. Could the soil be contaminated by industrial waste?

A.

The risks posed by topsoil contamination to Ketton inhabitants are usually low. Other sources of contaminated land include food-processing waste and groundwater contamination.

Q.

Are there many purchasers in Ketton gazumped?

A.

This occurs when a house seller accepts an offer and then rejects it in favour of a second purchaser's offer. It could happen only days prior to exchange. The chance of getting gazumped exists for almost any purchase. Instructing a fast, efficient solicitor as soon as possible is a key first step to reducing this risk.

Q.

I have found an abundance of books going into great depth on how to do DIY conveyancing for example Buying, Selling and Letting Property by David Hampshire. Do we necessarily need to spend money on a conveyancing solicitor in Ketton ?

A.

There is no argument why a home mover cant take care of the conveyancing without the help of a trained solicitor in Ketton.

In reality however, a conveyancer juggles a long list of activities ranging from approving contract or ensuring listed building alterations are compliant many of which need a skilled professional.

Essentially DIY conveyancers might come a cropper the applicable professional indemnity insurance which practicing legal practices always pay for.

Q.

Will my conveyancing fees have any extra fees?

A.

Our solicitors do not hide any extra, hidden charges. Some websites offer unrealistically low 'quotes' which are in fact estimates, which they will not be bound to.

Q.

What does the conveyancing searches be?

A.

With Homeward Legal, a purchase conveyancing client charged at most £249 for conveyancing searches. Searches are paid out to a 3rd party, and are not included in a quote for solicitor's fees.

Q.

When is it appropriate to find a conveyancing solicitor?

A.

With few exceptions, instructing as early as possible is better, as conveyancing involves several tasks which may begin immediately. Early instruction of a conveyancing solicitor for a sale allows relevant information can be sourced sooner (this is particularly true for leasehold properties), whereas if you are buying you can shave days off the process by having the details of your instructed solicitor ready when you make an offer.
