Q.

How do I get low cost conveyancing in Loughton?

A.

Many online and high street law firms purport to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. Often extra charges may be added into the terms that unknowing buyers have not reviewed Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

What kind of additional enquiries into the risk of possible flooding in the Essex region will the conveyancing solicitor in Loughton report on?

A.

An important part of the conveyancing procedure involves your solicitor carrying out environmental searches that provide you with some details on the Loughton flood risk. An inexpensive involved Essex database search (e.g Homecheck) will often be advocated by a Loughton property solicitor if the results of the initial searches highlight any risk of flooding.

Q.

Do your property lawyers look after the conveyancing for property auction properties in Loughton?

A.

Yes - Our company commonly work for bidders at auction. Conveyancers strongly advise buyers at auction to formally instruct their lawyer well before the actual auction to give enough time for a thorough review of the legal papers.

Following the property auction date your experienced lawyer is wholly focused on finishing all of the legal work inside 4 weeks as conventionally required .

Q.

I am purchasing a medieval barn conversion in the parish of Colchester St Botolph. Will a chancel search be needed?

A.

Your property solicitor might recommend that a chancel search be ordered. In Loughton's much older areas, chancel repair has the potential to be charged on the owners of a home where church councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners.

Q.

How do we protect ourselves from getting gazumped?

A.

This arises when a seller accepts an offer, then dismisses it, choosing instead a greater offer. Gazumping could occur even months into a sale. The danger of gazumping is present in any transaction. To reduce the likelihood of being gazumped, consider instructing a fast, efficient solicitor as early as possible.

Q.

Our mortgage lender is HSBC Bank, is there anything we need to check?

A.

Some lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel'. For buyers, this can result in significantly greater legal costs. We are able to act on behalf of most lenders so that the buyer will not have to pay your lender's legal costs.

Q.

Which Loughton mortgage lenders do you work with?

A.

We are able to work with the vast majority of lenders approved by the Council of Mortgage Lenders. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Loughton, such as Traders & General Insurance Services Ltd, 38 Church Hill, Loughton, IG10 1LA.
