Q.

There are lots of 'cheap' offers, but how do we find a good one? We are trying to find discount conveyancing in Looe.

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many buyers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned, and many firms purport to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing'. However extra charges will be included in the terms of engagement. Excited buyers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Additional charges ought to be reasonable. Your conveyancing quote must also state any disbursements to be paid.The online quote calculator can generate an accurate statement of the legal fees for the property you plan to buy.

Q.

If we are purchasing near Looe, in the parish of St Mawgan with St Martin in Meneage, do we need a chancel search?

A.

A conveyancing solicitor should confirm that a chancel search be ordered. Chancel repair may be apportioned on new owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have previously chosen not to do so. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.

Q.

Sudden personal circumstances dictate that we would prefer to get underway and complete on the sale of our share of freehold flat within 5 weeks, do Homeward Legal have any particularly fast solicitors in Looe ?

By employing cutting edge conveyancing case management systems . We always also give home movers a qualified solicitor incentivised to exert pressure with the complete property chain e.g. councils , to reach a quick exchange.

When should you get a solicitor?

A.

With a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, earlier is preferable. Instructing a conveyancing solicitor to handle your Looe conveyancing early can limit the risk of your transaction falling through.

Q.

Our local agent has offered the law firm. Is it risky to use this firm?

A.

Your agent can influence a solicitor they refer a large number of clients to, and can therefore exert pressure on your behalf. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, an agent may decide to recommend the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.

Q.

We are buying at auction and need arrange fast conveyancing, what can we do to speed up the conveyancing process?

A.

Experienced buyers will tell you that buying faster is the key to is to employing a proactive and experienced solicitor. Consider the following when selecting:

  • Was there a delay delivering a quote?
  • Are phone, fax and email their preferred methods of contact
  • Will they order searches immediately?

A.

Conservation areas categorise local areas of architectural merit. Your solicitor will be able to offer more information and address the impact buying in a conservation area may have.
