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.

Which property conveyancing searches should a conveyancer in Linslade get on a Linslade property?

A.

The standard conveyancing protocol is to get the following Local Authority Search, Drainage Search and Environment Search, and possibly area-specific searches for instance Planning report.

Q.

A.

Q.

At what point do you need to instruct a conveyancer in Linslade?

A.

If you choose a conveyancing firm with 'no move, no fee' protection, instructing as soon as possible is wise, as there are several tasks that may be performed straight away. Instructing a firm early for a sale may mean that paperwork can be prepared, even before a buyer is found, whereas if you are buying you can shave days off the process by having the details of your instructed solicitor ready when you make an offer.

Q.

What is gazumping?

A.

This happens when a low offer is, following agreement, later rejected by the property owner, opting instead for another purchaser's offer. Although gazumping is less common in a declining market, there will always be a risk. Instructing your conveyancing solicitor as soon as possible is a key first step to reducing this risk.

Q.

Do your panel of solicitors have experience with the conveyancing for auction properties in Linslade?

A.

Homeward Legal do frequently carry out work for sellers at auction. Homeward Legal invariably recommend buyers at auction to decide on a good conveyancing solicitor well before the property auction date so there is time for a detailed report of the sellers documents.

Thereafter, following the day of bidding your dedicated solicitor is thoroughly ready for completing the legal side of things inside as short a time frame as conventionally required .

Q.

Is a building survey sensible when we are purchasing a home?

A.

It is recommended that you arrange a home surveyor to undertake a survey. Buyers should be aware that there are a range of issues that can affect a property, which a conveyancing solicitor will not report on, such as roof spread.
