Q.

How do I get low cost conveyancing?

A.

This matter catches out many buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many property lawyers offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra charges will be included in the small print. Extra fees included in the small print should be reasonable. They be applicable if the lawyer must complete work beyond standard conveyancing on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Any disbursements should also be included on the conveyancing quote. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

How long can I account for the legal work to buy a flat generally require, on average?

A.

In general, the number of weeks needed to sell or purchase a property varies, influenced by a broad set of legal considerations. Homeward Legal work hard to ensure a sale, purchase or transfer of equity receives fast and efficient service.

Q.

What will a Long Melford conveyancing lawyer advise if the house we hope to invest in is in a Babergh council conservation area which appears to have ill-suited dormer windows fitted to it?

A.

Babergh planning authority search (LLC1 - Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search) carried out by the solicitor during the conveyancing

process will find out the existence of suitable council approval for alterations to the building.

Q.

I am buying in Long Melford, and have had a conveyancing quote from you. Are there any extra fees?

A.

No. Our solicitors do not hide any hidden charges for any reason. Know that some websites offer unrealistically low 'quotes' which are in fact estimates, meaning that you could pay much more when you complete.

Q.

At what point do I need to find a conveyancer?

A.

Whether buying or selling, the sooner you instruct a firm, the better. The legal work can then start straight away. Some groups suggest waiting before instruction until an offer is accepted, but doing so will put you at a disadvantage compared to better prepared buyers, or if your buyer decides to pull out due to delays.
