Q.

How do we get the cheapest conveyancing solicitors?

A.

Various solicitors offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes, however additional charges will be included in the solicitor's terms. Excited home owners, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Any extra costs found in terms and conditions should be fair and reasonable. Your quote should also state third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid.

Q.

I would like to know which New Milton lenders your lawyers are able to work with. Whose panels are your solicitors members of?

A.

Homeward Legal work with all the major lenders listed with the Council of Mortgage Lenders. A number of mortgage specialists operate in New Milton, including Dulay Barker Reeves, 5 Akeshill Cl, New Milton, BH25 5ES, South Coast Mortgages, 8 Uplands Av, Barton On Sea, New Milton, BH25 7BJ, and Pathfinders, Nursery Cottage/Stem La, New Milton, BH25 5NF.

Q.

How early should I speak to a solicitor?

A.

Whether you are buying or selling in New Milton, the sooner the better. Early instruction of a conveyancing firm could mitigate the chance of the transaction aborting.

Q.

What type of scrutiny regarding the potential risk of possible flooding in the Hampshire region will the conveyancing solicitor in New Milton scrutinise?

An important component in the conveyancing protocol of buying a property involves a conveyancing lawyer carrying out conveyancing and environmental searches that offer specific information in relation to New Milton flood risk area data.

Q.

As a consequence of the catastrophic flooding in the UK in April 2012 I am wondering whether conveyancing searches aren't sufficient?

A.

Property environmental searches applied for by a property lawyer in New Milton will also include a more informative Landmark flood search if it is felt necessary.

If you remain worried why not try to contact a close neighbour.

Q.

What is the council tax on a Thirties detached Band D building in New Milton?

A.

You will be given detail on the property's council tax band within the title report. Correct rates for properties in New Milton are tabled online at the New Forest council website. At the time of writing on 22 July 2012 rates for all bands are:

  • Band A - £978.00
  • Band B - £1,141.00
  • Band C - £1,304.00
  • Band D - £1,466.00
  • Band E - £1,792.00
  • Band F - £2,118.00
  • Band G - £2,444.00
  • Band H - £2,933.00

Q.

The estate agent has suggested a law firm that they have used before. Will it be more cost-effective to instruct them?

A.

Your agent may recommend a conveyancing firm. These referrals should be compared against alternatives, as an agent may select the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the best value for you.

Q.

What amount of time does conveyancing legal work often take, in your opinion? We need to move quickly.

A.

In general, the time taken to buy or sell a home varies, affected by a broad set of concerns which may include if a property is leasehold or freehold. 8 to 12 weeks is the average for many firms, but we work towards four to six weeks, wherever possible.
