Q.

How do I find low cost conveyancing?

A.

Many firms claim to offer so-called cheap conveyancing. However extra charges will be included in the small print. A conveyancing quote must also state any disbursements to be paid. Any extra costs listed in terms of engagement should be fair and reasonable. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.

Where can I go about find out whether the Kidlington conservation area is neglected?

A.

Conservation areas are specified by the local Cherwell planning authority, who oversee everything from including things like billboards, addition of PVC windows and whether trees can be cut down. English Heritage, a government body, keep information in relation to the state of conservation areas as well as the vulnerability of the area.

Q.

Do I need a building surveyor to look into our home purchase?

A.

We recommend that Kidlington property purchasers book a surveyor. Many defects can affect a property, which include cracks in walls, and issues such as these are not likely to be investigated as part of the conveyancing itself.

Q.

Are your house conveyancing solicitors set up to act quickly on the legal conveyancing of residential property auction properties in Kidlington?

A.

The legal team work closely with auctioneers and do frequently take instructions from sellers at auction.

It is sensible for buyers to instruct a lawyer as soon as they can to allow enough time for a thorough review of the lot prior to the actual auction.

After the date of the auction your now prepared solicitor is completely prepared for finishing the conveyancing in the usual 28 days as usually required .

Q.

I am buying in Kidlington with Bradford and Bingley - is there anything I need to know?

A.

Purchasers should be aware that, in some cases, lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel, resulting in higher legal costs for buyers if a second solicitor is required by their lender. Homeward Legal can act on behalf of all major mortgage lenders.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Kidlington?

A.

Kidlington is located in West Oxfordshire District Council, Town Centre Shop, 3 Welch Way, Witney, Oxfordshire, OX28 6JH, contact: 01993 861 000

Q.

What type of local searches as respects the risk of floods in the Oxfordshire area will my conveyancing solicitor in Kidlington be able to do?

A.

An important step in the conveyancing procedure involves your conveyancing lawyer conducting conveyancing and environmental searches that set out detail with respect to Kidlington flood risk area data.

Q.

We need to complete this property purchase as soon as possible, how do we get a fast conveyancing process?

A.

It is a truism that finding a proactive property lawyer is key fast conveyancing. There are several tasks you, as the purchaser, could do. These include:

  • pushing the property lawyer to begin enquiries as soon as possible
  • promptly answering your property lawyer's questions (by email if possible)
  • if you intend to get a house survey, doing so as early as you can
