Q.

I need a cheap solicitor quote for purchasing a leasehold home. What do I need to check for?

A.

Numerous property lawyers promote cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately extra fees will be included in the solicitor's terms. Any charges should be fair and be applied only where your solicitor is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The disbursements to be paid should be included on a conveyancing quote. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Do I need to make use of a conveyancing referred by our local agent?

A.

The agent can influence a solicitors firm they refer a large volume of work to, and can therefore induce a solicitor to complete sooner. However, if they are paid a referral fee, some agents choose the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

Will my solicitor in Little Burstead inform me about the cost of the council tax for a Band D building before exchange of contracts?

A lawyer will approach the appropriate council to ask about the latest council tax band and rates, which will be included in the conveyancer's title report. Council tax rates for homes in Little Burstead are set out on the Basildon local authority site. Currently (02 December 2012) the different rates are:

  • Band A - £1,032.00
  • Band B - £1,204.00
  • Band C - £1,376.00
  • Band D - £1,548.00
  • Band E - £1,893.00
  • Band F - £2,237.00
  • Band G - £2,581.00
  • Band H - £3,097.00

Q.

We have requested a conveyancing quote from you. Might there be any hidden costs?

A.

Homeward Legal never charge any hidden charges regardless of circumstances. Your conveyancing quote is an honest and accurate price.

Q.

What would searches cost?

A.

The cost of searches on a residential property in Little Burstead does vary. Common searches include an environmental search and a local authority search.

Q.

My lender is Bank of Ireland - is there anything I need to be aware of?

A.

Buyers should be aware that some lenders have limited the firms who can act for them. This can mean higher conveyancing costs for purchasers. We will act on behalf of many lenders in the UK to keep legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

We are buying a 1930s property in a conservation area, how does one find more information in relation to the standard of upkeep of the area?

A.

Local Little Burstead conservation areas are specified by the local Basildon planning authority, who maintain things like area development to new developments. Following a campaign, English Heritage keep information about the state of repair of conservation areas in addition to the vulnerability.

Q.

Are there any areas of conservation in Little Burstead?

A.

Locales deemed to be of architectural or historic interest, such as fishing villages, will be recorded as areas of conservation. A conveyancing solicitor will discuss the relevant responsibilities and be able to advise further.
