Q.

How do we find low cost conveyancing in Ledbury?

A.

Several firms claim to offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however additional costs may be added into the terms and conditions. Additional costs listed in the small print should be fair and reasonable and only apply to matters if the lawyer is required to complete extra work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

Will a property solicitor in Ledbury do any property on the Gloucestershire period semi-detached townhouse we are buying?

A.

The regular conveyancing protocol will be to get Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW) and Environment Search and, depending on certain criteria, less common searches, which might include Commons Registration (CON290).

Q.

Do you recommend that I get a chancel search? I am buying a Ledbury property close by a 16th Century rectory manor.

A.

Property owners near to nearby church property may be required to pay for repairs. This is referred to as chancel repair liability. Following the Land Registration Act 2002, interest over any affected land in Ledbury must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. Ledbury church lands include St Katherine's Chapel and St Michael.

Q.

We are purchasing with Bank of Ireland Mortgages - is there anything we need to be aware of?

When arranging a mortgage, your lender will require legal work to be carried out on their behalf. Buyers need to be aware that some lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel'. For buyers, this can result in significantly increased legal costs. Homeward Legal, though, can act for the vast majority of lenders, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

Is your panel of solicitors able to handle fast completions on the conveyancing of property auction properties in Ledbury?

A.

Our recommended conveyancing firms in Ledbury do frequently do the legal work for sellers at auction. Our auction team solicitors have previously worked for countless successful bidders at local Ledbury residential property auctions that include Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London, Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.

Prepared buyers tend to pick an experienced solicitors practice as soon as possible to allow sufficient time for a full review of the legal documents well in advance of the property auction.

Subsequently, immediately after the day of the auction your experienced property conveyancing lawyer will be geared up to finishing the conveyancing in 4 weeks as usually required .

Q.

How does my lawyer in Ledbury advise us on the risk and history of local flooding around Ledbury on a buy to let home we intend to purchase?

A.

A qualified lawyer conducts standard protocol environmental searches that should include Ledbury flood risk data.

Q.

Our estate agent in Bourton on the Water has named a lawyer. Is it risky to instruct this firm?

A.

Estate agent recommendations are a not uncommon route for buyers to find a solicitor. However, if they are paid a referral fee, an agent may select whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the most appropriate choice.

Q.

May charges for the conveyancing include any extra costs?

A.

Regrettably, buyers must be on their guard for considerable extra costs hidden in small print. We will not charge any additional fees. Some websites offer unrealistically low 'quotes' which are in fact estimates. The bill you receive on completion can be much greater.
