Q.

How do I find a discount conveyancing estimate?

A.

Lack of clarity over this matter affects many home owners who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process. Many solicitors purport to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Often extra fees may be added into the terms which home owners may have not read carefully Any additional fees ought to be fair. They be applicable if your conveyancer must perform additional tasks in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

What kind of investigation regarding the risk of possible flooding in Surrey will my property solicitor in North Cheam give details on?

A.

A critical component in the conveyancing protocol of purchasing a property involves a lawyer applying for property environmental searches that go in detail on the subject of North Cheam area flood risk.

Q.

I am purchasing with Co-operative Bank, what do I need to be aware of?

A.

Buyers should know that, in some cases, lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel'. For buyers, this can result in significantly increased legal costs. Homeward Legal can act for all major UK mortgage lenders, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

Does my lawyer in North Cheam carry out any conveyancing searches on the London Fifties end-of-terrace property I am intending to purchase?

A.

When applying for a mortgage the mortgage lender mandates a solicitor to get at least specific searches, including the following for properties in North Cheam: Local Authority Search, Drainage Search (Con29DW) and Environmental, and perhaps area-specific searches e.g. a HS35.

Q.

What does 'gazumping' mean?

A.

This occurs when the 1st purchaser's offer is rejected, following initial acceptance, by the seller, in favour of a higher offer. The will be a danger of gazumping in any transaction, because offers are not binding until exchange of contracts. Instructing a property solicitor as soon as possible is a key first step to reducing this risk.
