Q.

How do I get fixed rate conveyancing?

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many home owners, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned, and many solicitors advertise cheap conveyancing, but extra fees will be included in small print that unknowing home owners have not reviewed Any costs which are listed in the terms needs to be reasonable. They be applicable solely where the conveyancer must complete unanticipated additional work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Applicable disbursements must also be stated on the conveyancing quote based on the property you intend to buy, our online quote calculator will generate an accurate statement of conveyancing fees.

Q.

Should we opt for a property solicitor often used by the agent?

A.

Many estate agents have arrangements with solicitors where they refer clients to them. These referrals should be compared to other online or local firms, as it may be the case that the agent recommends the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the law firm with the best reputation.

Q.

We are taking out a mortgage with Alliance and Leicester - is there anything we need to consider?

A.

In some cases, lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel'. This can mean greater conveyancing costs for buyers. We, however, can act for many mortgage lenders so that you will not be required to pay an additional fee for your lender's solicitor.

Q.

Does your company advise on the legal conveyancing of auction properties in Markfield?

A.

We are highly knowledgeable with buyers at auction. Conventionally specialist houses e. g. derelict homes, are bought at auction and these demand further investigation. Solicitors therefore strongly advise that purchasers appoint a CQS solicitor well in advance of the auction to allow sufficient time for a full investigation. Immediately following the auction day itself your Homeward Legal property conveyancing lawyer is utterly able to concentrate on finishing all of the legal work within a month as typically required .

Q.

Will the solicitor in Markfield report back on the risk of local flooding in the Markfield region for a Sixties house we are going to purchase?

A.

A lawyer makes an application for standard formal environmental searches that incorporate Markfield flood risk area information. As an additional measure means that your solicitor in Markfield will sometimes suggest a more detailed involved local flood search.

Q.

Will a property report compiled by the property lawyer in Markfield report back on the cost of the council tax for a house prior to contracts are exchanged?

A.

A solicitor will approach the appropriate local authority to reveal the correct council tax charges which will then be added to the report on title. The correct charges for properties in Markfield are detailed at the local authority website.
