How do we find a cheap conveyancing solicitor quote for the purchase of a flat in Royal Leamington Spa?

Various solicitors offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', although they are more like estimates, because additional costs are frequently hidden in the small print. Excited homeowners, eager to get underway, often ignore these crucial details when they instruct a conveyancing solicitor. However, at Homeward Legal, our quotes are always transparent with all costs, fees and disbursements clearly distinguished so that you know what you will be paying.

Property solicitors in Royal Leamington Spa apply for a variety of searches if instructed by a client, but which specific ones are they?

When a home-buyer needs to supplement the purchase of a property with a mortgage, the lender will insist that your appointed conveyancing solicitor obtain at least the following for a property in Royal Leamington Spa:

  • Local Authority Search
  • Drainage Search (Con29DW)
  • Environment Search
In addition, they may request any special searches specific to Royal Leamington Spa, such as the impact detailed in an HS2 Search (for the proposed railway line).

In the next few weeks, we are going to move from our terraced residence near Royal Leamington Spa to our next house in Kenilworth. At what stage do I instruct a house removal firm?

Homeward Legal’s best advice is to hold off appointing a removal firm until such time as you and the other sides (the purchaser of your current property and the seller of your new house) have set an absolute completion date. This will only happen once final contracts are signed and exchanged.

Is contaminated land a concern in purchasing properties in Royal Leamington Spa?

Many contaminants can reduce the value of a Royal Leamington Spa property. Contaminants such as those caused by coal mining should be considered as part of the appropriate search. This will be part of the environmental search that your appointed conveyancing solicitor will order as part of the standard conveyancing process, and this will advise on the level of contamination risk likely to affect your property.

Might Homeward Legal’s conveyancing fees hide any supplementary fees?

Homeward Legal does not charge any extra fees that are hidden under any circumstances. All costs, disbursements and fees will be clearly laid out in your quote. For instance, sometimes a significant piece of extra work is required, such as a lease extension, which will be charged to you at cost. You need to be aware of such disbursements and costs so nothing comes as a surprise. Homeward Legal’s quotes always detail all the appropriate financial costs.

In regards to the serious flooding in 2012 in the Midlands, I am anxious that flood searches won't be sufficiently thorough. What is your advice?

When you instruct your conveyancing solicitor, they will initiate a set of standard searches. The environmental search includes the assessment of the risk of flooding at your Royal Leamington Spa house. If the flood risk is deemed significant enough, a more in-depth search at Landmark will be requested. Why not converse with a future neighbour to gain more local history? Or contact a local Warwickshire flood damage builder such as:

  • Apex Brickwork Contracts, 3 Lammas Croft, Whitnash, Leamington Spa, CV31 2NH (Tel: 01926 710487).
