Q.

We need to find the cheapest conveyancing solicitors. What do we need to check for?

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many homeowners paying out more than they anticipated in the end. Many firms purport to offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often additional fees will be included in small print. Extras which are listed in terms and conditions should be clearly defined. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

When in the process is it appropriate to speak to a conveyancer in Killamarsh?

A.

If you use a solicitor offering a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, the sooner you instruct a solicitor, the better, as the legal work can start very early in the process. Instructing a firm early for a sale enables 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.

Would acquiring a house survey be necessary when purchasing a house or flat, regardless of its age?

A.

Homeward Legal strongly recommend that property purchasers arrange a RICS surveyor to carry out a survey. Buyers should be aware that there are a range of issues that can affect a property, which include ground movement and corrosion of pipework, and these will not be addressed by your conveyancing solicitor.

Q.

I am purchasing a converted flat in one of the Killamarsh conservation area, where does one find information on the state of upkeep of the Killamarsh conservation area?

A.

Local Killamarsh conservation areas are set up by the local North East Derbyshire planning authority, who preserve things like what can be developed to the thwarting of new developments. English Heritage maintain details in relation to the condition of conservation areas in addition to the vulnerability of the area.

Q.

What does a Killamarsh property solicitor do when the house is in a registered conservation area and has conspicuous windows added?

A.

North East Derbyshire local authority Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search conducted by a property lawyer in the process of the conveyancing will confirm whether the property is within a conservation area and any evidence of local authority approval for modifications will be requested. If no local authority consents be in evidence the solicitor will give you professional advice on the alternatives e.g. getting covered by an indemnity insurance policy or getting retrospective permission from the appropriate local authority.

Q.

Unforeseen personal circumstances mean we ideally need to exchange contracts on the conveyancing process on our co-owned freehold flat inside a month, do Homeward Legal have any property auction specialist fast solicitors in Killamarsh ?
