Q.

We are trying to find fixed rate conveyancing. How do I get a quote?

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this issue affects many home owners who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process. Many conveyancers claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing', but additional fees will be included in small print. This small print is often not read by home owners in a hurry. Your Langstone conveyancing quote ought to list costs to be paid to third parties, including search providers, (disbursements). Any additional fees included in your solicitor's terms needs to be fair.

Q.

As a result of the serious river flooding in Wales I am concerned that conveyancing and environmental searches won't be sufficient?

A.

Environmental searches handled by a Langstone property solicitor will also include a more rigorous Landmark flood search if required.

You can speak to a neighbour of the property for additional added local history if you are still worried.

Q.

What causes sale conveyancing appear to be so drawn out?

A.

The legal work required to buy or sell a house or flat could be drawn out for many reasons. The delays may unhappily be out of the solicitor's control. We understand how frustrating these are and do our best to reduce their burden by driving the transaction forward.

Q.

Do Homeward Legal look after the conveyancing for auction properties in Langstone?

A.

Homeward Legal is highly knowledgeable with auction buyers and sellers. Conveyancers invariably advocate bidders to instruct an affordable lawyer prior to the property auction to give enough time for a thorough review of the documents.

After the auction day the property lawyer will be focused on completing the transaction within the limited time frame as usually required .

Q.

I plan to purchase a home in Roggiet with Ifton. Will a chancel search be compulsory?

A.

Regardless of the Langstone parish you are buying in, the conveyancing lawyer is likely to recommend that a chancel search be taken out. Through some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have opted to exact chancel repairs on the owners of lay rectorships, a solicitor cannot state with certainty that a parish where repair costs have not been paid before, that this will not continue to be so.

Q.

We are buying in Langstone. Are there any conservation areas?

A.

Conservation areas protect streets and neighbourhoods of architectural or historic interest. Living in a conservation area can mean better maintained homes and gardens, but the restrictions can result in the buyer inheriting liability of unauthorised changes. A property solicitor will discuss the relevant responsibilities.

Q.

Will the Langstone property lawyer carry out any searches on the Hampshire Fifties semi-detached house I am purchasing

A.

The customary conveyancing procedure is to obtain Local Authority (council), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW) and Environmental and perhaps special local Langstone searches such as Chancel Search.

Q.

Is contaminated land a concern in Langstone?

A.

Many of contaminants can affect property in Langstone, and factors such as existing and proposed overhead electricity cables will be reported on in environmental search results.
