Q.

How do I find the best rates for conveyancing for a £519,000 residence?

A.

Confusion over this point catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many property lawyers offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing', however extra fees will be included in the small print. Excited homeowners, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Any charges should be fair and clearly defined. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Of major Linslade mortgage lenders, which firms are on your panel?

A.

Homeward Legal work with the majority of lenders assisting home buyers in Linslade. Linslade lenders and mortgage specialists include Impetus, 61 Camberton Rd, Leighton Buzzard, LU7 2UW.

Q.

How much can the conveyancing searches in Linslade usually cost?

A.

The cost of conveyancing searches for a house in Linslade substantially varies. They are charged at cost.

Q.

I have a reasonable understanding of DIY conveyancing as a seller of a house. Might it be a false economy to take care of the legals on our own?

A.

In theory, there is no reason why a seller shouldn't handle the legal process on your own.

In reality however, a property lawyer carries out a large number of tasks including checking contracts and ongoing communication with the other sides solicitors some of which require training.

In addition lawyers need to have the appropriate professional indemnity insurance to protect you in the event of omissions.

Q.

Which government authority has overall responsibility for recording the state of neglect the conservation areas in Linslade?

A.

Local conservation areas are specified by the local authority (Central Bedfordshire) who oversee the state of the area including things like ugly highway signs, side extensions and street furniture. English Heritage have assembled a list on the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas in England along with the vulnerability.

Q.

Food risk searches are computed from archived information and when you consider recent weather changes such as the extensive flooding in the UK in April 2012, are they sufficient to advise on enough about the Linslade area flood risk?

A.

A diligent conveyancing solicitor in Linslade will advise you to include in depth environmental searches if the environmental conveyancing searches spots a any kind of risk of flooding in Linslade.

It may be sensible to contact a future neighbour for some extra local information.

Q.

Should you get a chancel liability search? We are buying a Linslade house on the same street as rectory grounds.

A.

Some owners in Linslade can be required to cover the cost of maintenance of specific local church buildings. A chancel search will confirm whether liability for Linslade properties is likely to exist. The solicitor acting on your behalf will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate. Church of England properties in the local area include St Barnabas.

Q.

I've had a conveyancing quote from you. May we be billed any additional charges?

A.

No. Homeward Legal do not charge any hidden extra costs.
