Q.

How do we get a cheap solicitor in Kimberley for buying a residence?

A.

This affects many property buyers and sellers who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process, and many conveyancers promote cheap conveyancing quotes. However additional costs are frequently hidden in the small print. Busy, stressed property buyers and sellers ignore these terms at their peril. Get a quote using the Homeward Legal quote calculator for the property you are buying.

Q.

We are buying on a brownfield site. What should we do regarding manganese (Mn) soil contamination?

A.

There are considerable regulations to limit soil contamination. Data on many contaminants, such as chlorinated solvents, will be included in an environmental search.

Q.

Could the legal fees introduce any hidden costs?

A.

No. Homeward Legal's solicitors never charge any additional costs under any circumstances. Some websites offer unrealistically low 'quotes' which are in fact estimates, meaning that you could pay much more when you complete.

Q.

When in the process is it appropriate to find a conveyancer to handle our transaction?

A.

With a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, instructing as early as possible is better. The legal work can then start straight away. Instructing a firm early can reduce any chance of the purchase or sale stalling.

Q.

Please advise how to get out of paying out for stamp duty on our Kimberley property?

A.

Stamp duty avoidance is not advised, as such schemes are often uneconomical and often likely to fail. There have been certain government initiatives, such as relief for buyers in 'disadvantaged areas'.

Q.

The local agent has named the solicitors firm which they often use. Must we use them?

A.

Both agents and mortgage brokers will push a law firm. Such referrals must be compared with other local solicitors, or better-value firms found online, as an agent may decide to recommend the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.

Q.

We are hopefully going to sell our freehold property at a Nottinghamshire property auction, will your panel introduce us to fast Kimberley conveyancing solicitors ?

A.

Our chosen solicitors adopt a efficient method when completing the conveyance as fast as possible.

With Homeward Legal, SRA regulated solicitors will communicate through every part of the buyer and seller chain and who always use advanced practice management systems to push through your sale to your time frame.

Q.

What individual property conveyancing searches does the solicitor in Kimberley apply for a Kimberley house?

A.

The regular legal procedure will be to get Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal), Environmental and Gypsum Mining Search and perhaps specific searches, like a Chancel Repair Liability Search.
