Luton Airport is 2 miles from Luton. Northolt Jet Centre Airport is 23 miles, Elstree Airport is 17 miles and Booker Airport is 25 miles away. The nearest train station to Luton is Luton.

Luton is about 1 1/2m of junction entry 10 Northbound of the M1.

Q.

How do we find fixed rate conveyancing?

A.

Many law firms promote 'the cheapest conveyancing', but additional fees are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Any disbursements to be paid should also be included on a conveyancing quote

Q.

What length of time does the legal work to purchase residential property generally need? We need to move quickly.

A.

On average, the number of weeks needed to transfer residential property may vary. This wide range results from a number of legal considerations, for example, whether it is a leasehold property being transferred. Homeward Legal strive to ensure your sale or purchase is undertaken as quickly as possible.

Q.

I would like to know which Luton lenders your lawyers are able to work with. Whose panels are you on?

A.

Homeward Legal are able to work in conjunction with most lenders who are Council of Mortgage Lenders-approved. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Luton, like Aviva, 2-4 Park St, Luton, LU1 3EP, Beneficial Finance, 64-66 Stuart St, Luton, LU1 2SW, and Mortgage Direct, Wellington St, Luton, LU1 2QH. The lawyer handling the work for your Luton purchase or sale should be able to provide more information.

Q.

As a consequence of the serious flooding in the UK in April 2012 I am apprehensive that flood risk searches might not be detailed enough?

A.

Property environmental searches carried out by the Luton conveyancing solicitor should also include the more detailed flood search if the risk is deemed significant.

If you are nervous you can approach a neighbour or local resident or local Bedfordshire flood damage business - try BMC Commercial & Domestic Painting & Decorating, 128 Handcross Rd, Luton, LU2 8JF Tel: 01582 614752.

Q.

First Active is going to be our lender - what do I need to check?

A.

Buyers should consider that, in some cases, lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel', potentially creating greater legal costs for buyers. Homeward Legal are able to act for most lenders, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

The owner appears to have added window frames on the property which I think might possibly defy Plaiters Lea Town Centre conservation area criteria.

A.

A lawyer will make enquiries to see whether the property is inside a conservation area, and if so whether any alterations have the requisite permission from the local authority.

Q.

Is it possible that some of the Luton conservation areas are in a deteriorating state?

A.

The most recent directory of the condition of conservation areas in Luton is surveyed by English Heritage and the following information is accessible at their site- High Town Road is noted as very bad with low vulnerability and deteriorating significantly, Plaiters Lea with Town Centre is noted as poor with medium vulnerability and deteriorating.

Q.

We ideally need to complete on the selling of our co-owned flat in a short time frame, are you very fast Luton solicitors ?

A.

Yes, We maintain that our conveyancing lawyers always take a very efficient approach when concluding the necessary legal work Our method is different - we use new case and work flow systems .

Importantly we assign you a SRA regulated solicitors prepared to communicate end to end throughout the chain .
