Q.

How do I find fixed rate conveyancing in Markyate?

A.

Both high-street and online solicitors claim to offer so-called cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately additional fees can inflate your final invoice. Extra charges included in terms and conditions ought to be fair. Any disbursements to be paid must also be stated on a quote

Q.

Are charges for obtaining duplicate freehold company share certificates disbursements or fees?

A.

Some solicitors pass off additional costs as disbursements. It may not be clear whether a cost is a fee or not, and whether it should be included. These costs are fees not disbursements, and should be included in a conveyancing quote.

Q.

We are buying in Markyate, and have a conveyancing quote from you. Might we have to pay any additional fees?

A.

No. Homeward Legal's solicitors will not charge any extra, hidden charges regardless of circumstances. A Homeward Legal quote is an accurate fee.

Q.

What can a Markyate conveyancing lawyer do when the flat we are intending to buy is in a local authority conservation area and has unfitting roof aerials installed?

A.

The conveyancing solicitor to establish whether the property is within a designated conservation area, and if so whether any alterations have essential permission from the local planning authority.

A.

Most lenders in Markyate are on our solicitors' panels. Lenders and mortgage specialists in Markyate include Mortgage Connexion, Sebright House/76a High St, Markyate, St. Albans, AL3 8LF.

Q.

I plan to buy a church rectory in the parish of Caldecote. Is a chancel search important?

A.

The conveyancing lawyer may suggest that a chancel search be ordered, regardless of the parish in which the house being purchased is found. In older areas of Markyate, chancel repair can be imposed on new owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils have previously chosen not to do so.

Q.

We are aiming to purchase a modern property. Should we have property searches undertaken?

A.

Conveyancing searches are queries ordered in the interest of the purchaser, such as an environmental search, and cover solely the legal condition of the property's title.

Q.

Our estate agent has put forward the solicitors firm that they have used before. Will it be more cost-effective to use this solicitor?

A.

It is common practice for estate agents to suggest a conveyancer, however, such referrals should be compared against alternatives, such as local solicitors, or firms found online, as some agents may 'recommend' the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.
