Q.

We are looking for a fixed rate conveyancing estimate. What should we check?

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many property buyers and sellers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned. Many property lawyers offer cheap conveyancing, however additional costs can increase the final bill. Your quote should also state the disbursements to be paid.We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

Our agent has put forward the conveyancing solicitor. Is it risky to use this solicitor?

A.

The Brislington agent will push a conveyancing solicitor. However, if they are paid a referral fee, an agent may decide to recommend the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.

Q.

What factors can contaminate land in Mottingham. Are these checked for thoroughly?

A.

Property will be contaminated by several natural causes and human activities, such as hazardous substances in the ground. An environmental search can provide much more clarity.

Q.

When in the conveyancing process is it wise to find a conveyancer?

A.

Whether buying or selling, instructing as soon as possible is wise. The legal work can then begin straight away. Instructing a firm early can reduce the likelihood of the purchase or sale stalling.

Q.

Is a leasehold supplement a fee or disbursement?

A.

Every disbursement and fee ought to be identified on a quote for your conveyancing. This cost is a fee not a disbursement, and should be clearly stated in a quote for your conveyancing.

Q.

How much does charge for my searches be?

A.

With Homeward Legal's conveyancing service, a client in Mottingham is expected to pay no more than £249 for searches. Searches are paid out to a 3rd party, and are not included in a quote for solicitor's fees.

Q.

I am planning to buy in Mottingham. Can I find out whether the residence is in a conservation area?

A.

Conservation areas denote regions of architectural or historic interest. You may wish to contact the local council for more detail, but your solicitor will investigate this in detail during the property transaction.

Q.

Does my Mottingham conveyancing solicitor conduct any searches on the London Sixties end-of-terrace property I am purchasing

A.

If buying and getting a mortgage lender insist that these searches - Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search and Environmental and perhaps special local Mottingham searches such as Coal and Brine.
