Q.

How do we get the best rates for conveyancing for a £444,000 property?

A.

Various law firms claim to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra charges may be added into small print. Any additional costs found in terms of engagement should be reasonable. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.

Can chromium contaminate Kingston topsoil?

A.

The risks posed by soil contamination to Kingston inhabitants are usually low. Also considering issues such as water contaminants such as oil and acidic compounds, contaminants affecting Kingston property will be factored into an environmental search.

Q.

Is a building survey a good idea when buying property in Kingston?

A.

Homeward Legal recommend that you order a home buyer survey when you plan to buy in Kingston. There can be a wide range of defects which can affect a property, that will not be addressed during the conveyancing process, which include cavity wall tie failure or unsafe chimney circulation.

Q.

How much can my conveyancing searches on average cost?

With Homeward Legal's conveyancing service, a client is charged no more than £249 for searches on a purchase in Kingston. Common searches include a mining search and a chancel liability search.

Q.

For fast conveyancing to buy a £770,000 house, what do we need to do?

A.

Many buyers will, correctly, argue that finding a proactive, diligent solicitor is key a faster move. There are several things you can also do to speed up the process, such as, pushing the solicitor to begin enquiries as soon as possible, promptly answering your solicitor's questions (by email if possible) and ordering a property survey early in the transaction.

Q.

My wife and I are interested in purchasing a house in Kingston, and would like to confirm that there are many areas of conservation.

A.

Conservation areas delineate regions designated as being of historical or architectural value. The benefits of such restrictions will include a more attractive neighbourhood, but they can add to maintenance costs.

Q.

We are on a very small budget. Can doing DIY conveyancing without the assistance of a Kingston conveyancing solicitor possibly save any cash?

A.

There is absolutely no argument why a home seller shouldn't complete the legal work without the help of a professional conveyancing solicitor in Kingston. In reality however, a conveyancing solicitor is in charge of a large array of exercises including chasing replies to enquiries and ensuring listed building alterations are compliant which need a qualified professional. More importantly do it yourself conveyancers are taking risks without relevant professional indemnity insurance that every legal firms are required to carry.

Q.

I am likely to be moving from our semi detached building in Kingston into a dwelling in Kew . What is the optimum stage to instruct a home removal firm?

A.

Our recommendation is to wait before making arrangements with the removals until the point where both sides have agreed a home moving date that happens once exchange of contracts.
