Q.

How do I get fixed rate conveyancing?

A.

Confusion over this matter catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many firms purport to offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately additional costs will be included in the terms of engagement which unwary buyers fail to check. Your Mitcham conveyancing quote should list third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid.

Q.

Should we get a chancel search if I plan to purchase in the parish of Exminster, near Mitcham?

A.

Your property lawyer may suggest that a chancel search be taken out. Through some Parochial Church Councils have chosen to charge chancel repairs on the owners of land subject to chancel liability, a conveyancing solicitor cannot verify that a parish which has not imposed liability will not continue to be so, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Q.

When in the process should we find a conveyancer?

A.

In the majority of situations, the earlier, the better, as there are a number of tasks which may be carried out straight away. Some authors suggest waiting before instruction until the offer is accepted, but delays can risk the other side pulling out, particularly in uncertain market conditions.

Q.

Does your company look after the legal conveyancing of auction properties in Mitcham?

A.

Our firm is able to work with buyers at auction. Conventionally unusually constructed lots such as where located in disadvantaged or undesirable areas are listed at property auctions which need supplementary exploration. Homeward Legal therefore advocate purchasers to choose a solicitor well in advance of the auction day to give enough time for a detailed review of the legal papers.

Subsequently, following the actual auction a prepared lawyer is prepared for carry out the legal process in less than the usual 28 days as required by the terms of sale.
