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.

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.

Does the solicitor in Ketton order any searches on the Lincolnshire forties detached townhouse I am intending to purchase?

A.

If you are applying for a mortgage lender will expect a solicitor to get at least these searches - Local Authority, Drainage Search (Con29DW) and Environment Search and occasionally specific searches for example Commons Registration Search.

Q.

I would like to know which Ketton lenders your lawyers work with. Which panels are your solicitors members of?

A.

We can work alongside most lenders. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Ketton, such as List David Mortgage Consultants Ltd, 1 Elm Close, Market Deeping, Peterborough, PE6 8JN, Mortgage & Financial Advice Centre, 147 Oundle Rd, Peterborough, PE2 9QZ, and Appollo Mortgage Services, Po Box 115, Bourne, PE10 9XF.

Q.

Does Homeward Legal look after the legal conveyancing of auction properties in Ketton?

A.

Our firm is highly knowledgeable with auction buyers and sellers. Normally specialist buildings like live work flats, are listed in auctions which tend to require added review. Lawyers therefore recommend that buyers decide on a SRA regulated lawyer before the property auction for a full review of the auction pack. After the auction day arrives your dedicated conveyancing lawyer is utterly focused on completing the legal side of things within the reduced time frame as required .

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.

Q.

Prudential Banking is going to be our mortgage lender, what do I need to be aware of?

A.

A small number of lenders are now reducing the size of their 'solicitor panel'. For buyers, this can result in significantly increased legal costs. Homeward Legal can act on behalf of many lenders.

Q.

Should we get a home buyers survey for this house purchase?

A.

It is strongly advised that buyers arrange a home surveyor. There can be a wide range of problems which have a negative impact on a property, that a lender's valuation survey, for example, will not cover. These include roof spread.
