Q.

How do I get the best conveyancing rates for a £640,000 residence?

A.

Several law firms offer supposedly cheap conveyancing, however extra fees are often hiding in the small print which unwary property buyers and sellers fail to check. Costs found in terms of engagement needs to be reasonable.

Q.

We are buying in Lightwater on a new development ex-industrial use land. Is iron soil contamination likely?

A.

Restrictions exist to prevent future soil contamination, but some existing contaminants can reside for decades after exposure. The local authority for Lightwater will be able to provide more detail on cases of contamination.

Q.

How does conveyancing go on for so long?

A.

Conveyancing may take more time than budgeted. Homeward Legal aim to lessen the burden of these delays by pushing all parties involved. Reasons for delay may include the time taken to return management information.

Q.

I am planning on buying a renovated house in the middle of a Lightwater conservation area. Where can I uncover data relating to the standard of repair?

Following a campaign, English Heritage have produced details of the state of repair of conservation areas as well as the trend of the area. Conservation areas in Lightwater are nominated by the local authority (Surrey Heath) who police everything from what can be demolished to the halting of billboards.

Q.

Which Lightwater mortgage lender panels are your solicitors members of?

A.

The Homeward Legal group can work alongside most lenders approved by the Council of Mortgage Lenders. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Lightwater, including Bellamy Amanda, 14 Redditch, Bracknell, RG12 0TT, GDC Associates, 97 Eastmead, Farnborough, GU14 7SA, and Financial Solutions, Thornbury Cl, Crowthorne, RG45 6PE.

Q.

What sort of conveyancing searches concerning the potential risk of local flooding to properties in Surrey will my property solicitor in Lightwater carry out?

A.

An integral step in the conveyancing procedure of purchasing a property involves a conveyancer conducting property environmental searches that set out information about the potential Lightwater flooding.

Q.

If I am buying near Lightwater, in the parish of Cranleigh, do we need a chancel search?

A.

Your property solicitor could advise that a chancel search be ordered, regardless of the parish in which the property being purchased is found. In Lightwater's much older areas, chancel repair dues can be collected on owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have not imposed the same liability on the last owners, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.

Q.

Is homewardlegal.co.uk experienced enough to very fast completions on the legal conveyancing of residential property auction properties in Lightwater?

A.

The legal team are familiar with local and national auctions and often act for buyers and sellers at auction. We always suggest buyers at auction to select an affordable conveyancing company before the date of the auction to allow sufficient time for a full review of the property's legal title.

Subsequently, following the auction day arrives your instructed conveyancing lawyer is absolutely able to concentrate on completing the purchase in 4 weeks as usually required .
