How do I find fixed rate conveyancing?


This matter catches out many home owners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many firms claim to offer so-called cheap conveyancing. Often additional charges may increase your solicitor's invoice. Any charges found in terms of engagement ought to be clearly defined. Applicable disbursements should also be clearly stated on the quote. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.


Does our Melksham property solicitor report back to me about the cost of the council tax on a Band B building before exchanging contracts?


The conveyancer will speak to the relevant council to ask about the correct council tax band and rates, which will subsequently be set out in the conveyancing report on title.

Council tax charges for Melksham are set out in detail online at the Wiltshire local authority website. At the time of writing, 05 July 2012, band rates are:

  • Band A - £1,010.00
  • Band B - £1,179.00
  • Band C - £1,347.00
  • Band D - £1,515.00
  • Band E - £1,852.00
  • Band F - £2,189.00
  • Band G - £2,525.00
  • Band H - £3,031.00

We believe that our network of lawyers adopt a completely active approach to fulfilling the legal work

With Homeward Legal, conveyancing property lawyers are focused on speed and try to communicate from the start to the end of the buyer and seller chain and use modern document production systems to exchange on the sale of your property in the shortest time.


Should I opt for a lawyer who usually works with by our local agent?


An agent will have influence over a solicitor they refer many clients to, and can therefore pressure a solicitor to complete sooner. However, if they are paid a referral fee, an agent may choose the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.


What makes sale conveyancing legal work to take so long?


The conveyancing process will occasionally be obstructed. We do our best to reduce the effect of these delays wherever feasible. Common delays may include waiting for a mortgage offer.


How many weeks should we allow for the conveyancing process often require, according to your estimates?


For most residential property, the time taken to sell or purchase residential property will vary. This is dependent on several legal considerations, for example, if either party has a mortgage. Our conveyancers ensure every sale receives communicative and proactive service, resulting in the fastest possible outcome.


What will the Melksham property lawyer do if the flat I hope to invest in is inside the boundary of a local authority conservation area and has unfitting stone cladding fitted?


Your instructed lawyer will make enquiries to establish whether the property is located within a designated conservation area, and if so, whether any modifications have the appropriate consents. In the absence of any appropriate consents, your Melksham conveyancer will advise you of all options, which include obtaining from Wiltshire council or purchasing an indemnity insurance policy.


In a few weeks I am expecting to move out of our terraced residence near Melksham to a house in Bradford On Avon at what stage to appoint a removals firm?


Most conveyancers usually advocate that buyers and sellers put off booking a removals company until the point where exchange of contracts has occurred as an absolute home moving date wont have been decided.
