Q.

We are looking for a property solicitor that offers cheap conveyancing. What are the risks?

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many homeowners, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned, and many property lawyers offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra charges may increase your solicitor's invoice. Any additional costs which are listed in terms of engagement should be fair and only be applied if your conveyancer must complete unanticipated additional work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The conveyancing quote ought to list any disbursements.Get a quote using the Homeward Legal quote calculator for the property you are buying.

Q.

If we are buying a property by a 1500s rectory manor in Norton, do I need to get a chancel search?

A.

Repair costs resulting from chancel liability can total hundreds of thousands of pounds. A chancel search is used to confirm whether such a liability exists. Liability is more common in some parts of the country. The solicitor performing your conveyancing will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate. Norton churches where a chancel search may be necessary include St Andrew, St Andrew, St Mary and St James.

Q.

The web is full of a growing number manuals giving details on by passing the solicitor such as House Buying, Selling and Conveyancing: How to Save Estate Agent and Solicitor Fees When Buying or Selling Property by Joseph Bradshaw and Georgia Bedworth. Do I actually need to use a conveyancing solicitor in Norton ?

If you wish to try, you can take care of the conveyancing without the services of an instructed Norton property solicitor. All conveyancing professionals would argue that this would be a very risky course of action have a go conveyancers will not be covered by sufficient insurance that all solicitors are under a duty to take out.

Q.

What causes sale conveyancing legal work to take weeks to complete?

A.

The legal work involved in buying or selling Norton property can be delayed even in the best of circumstances. Sometimes, these causes are beyond the solicitors' influence. We know the needless stress these can cause and work hard to reduce their consequences whenever it is feasible by driving the transaction forward.

Q.

Do 'conveyancing searches' matter?

A.

Searches are a commonly-used pack of queries raised by the purchaser's conveyancing solicitor through local and national authorities, which may include an environmental search, and will only cover issues and defects relating to the property's legal title.

Q.

The current owner looks to have fitted conspicuous artificial stone cladding on the property in Norton which we think might possibly exclude local conservation area rules

A.

Your instructed solicitor to verify whether the property is within a conservation area and whether any alterations have the necessary permissions from the Tewkesbury planning authority. In the absence of any consents, your solicitor will inform you of the options, which include obtaining from Tewkesbury local authority or taking out an indemnity insurance policy.

Q.

Property conveyancing searches may be standard procedure for home buyers but with recent weather changes e g the major flooding in Sept 2012 in North East England are they still appropriate to find out sufficient information about the Norton future flood risk?

A.

Flood risk searches applied for by the Norton lawyer will include the far more rigorous search (Landmark) if the risk warrants it.

If you are worried make enquiries with a neighbour.

Q.

Is a deed of assignment a fee or a disbursement?

A.

Comparing conveyancing quotes is often challenging, considering differences in terminology. This charge,e.g., is a fee not a disbursement, and should be included in your conveyancing quote. Any associated disbursement costs will, however, be passed on..
