Q.

How do I find the best conveyancing rates in New Forest for a £446,000 property?

A.

Both high-street and online law firms purport to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra charges are frequently hidden in the terms of engagement which unwary homeowners fail to check. Any disbursements to be paid should be included on a quote. The online quote calculator can generate an accurate statement of the legal fees for the property you plan to buy.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for New Forest?

A.

Q.

My estate agent has suggested a law firm. Must we use this firm?

A.

Estate agent recommendations are a commonplace route for buyers to find a solicitor. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, an agent may select the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the law firm with the best reputation.

Q.

Our mortgage lender is Cheshire Building Society - what will we need to check?

A.

Over the last two years, some lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel', resulting in greater conveyancing costs for property buyers in cases where the chosen solicitor cannot act for their lender, and another must also be instructed. We are able to act for the vast majority of UK mortgage lenders.

Q.

In relation to the Met Office warning of more intense rainfall in the future, we are anxious that environmental searches aren't thorough enough?

A.

Your New Forest conveyancer should get additional in depth environmental searches from Landmark if the first search determines a New Forest flood risk area data

Why not converse with a next door neighbour to get additional comfort if you are still worried.

Q.

Would arranging a home buyers survey be advisable if we are buying a property?

A.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors advise that purchasers in New Forest book a home buyer survey when you intend to buy in New Forest. It is a fact that there are many concerns that can affect a property, including severe weathering and unsafe chimney circulation.

Q.

What length of time will be budgeted for the legal work to transfer a house usually need in New Forest?

A.

The length of time needed to sell or purchase residential property varies. This is affected by many aspects, including whether a mortgage is involved. With our specialist solicitors, every purchase receives communicative and proactive service, resulting in the fastest possible outcome.

Q.

Doing your own conveyancing without the help of a conveyancing solicitor in New Forest appears to be becoming possible when buying a maisonette , but would it be actually be foolish ?

A.

Hypothetically there is absolutely no reason why a home seller cant carry out the your own conveyancing on your own. In reality however, a property lawyer in New Forest takes care of a large array of exercises including approving pre exchange checklists and collating and preparing contract and package most of which require experience.

AT any rate legal practices are bound to be covered by cover to insulate you from any negligence.
