Q.

How do we identify a genuinely cheap fee? We need affordable conveyancing in Norwood.

A.

Numerous conveyancers offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra costs may be added into the terms that buyers often do not check. Costs ought to be reasonable and be applicable solely where the solicitor must perform additional tasks on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. A quote should list any disbursements to be paid.We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

What makes Norwood property legal work for a purchase to take so long? Isn't it just filling out forms?

A.

The conveyancing process may be delayed, we, however, work hard to minimise their impact whenever possible. Delays include difficulties with mortgage finance.

Q.

Is a deed of variation paid to the solicitor?

A good quote will clearly list all disbursements and fees. This cost is a fee not a disbursement. It should be included in a quote.

Q.

What local factors can impact land in Norwood, and are they comprehensively investigated?

A.

Norwood property will be contaminated by many naturally-occurring factors, like waste disposal sites. An environmental search can provide much more clarity.

Q.

In relation to the fact that 2012 was second wettest year since on record I am concerned that environmental searches might not be sufficient?

A.

A Norwood solicitor should always apply for flood searches from Landmark if the first conveyancing searches flag up a Norwood flood risk.

For greater assurance it may be prudent to contact a local resident.

Q.

What should I be conscious of if we buy a flat in a Croydon council designated conservation area ?

A.

An integral part of the legal process includes the making of enquiries of the local authority to confirm conservation area status and the required consent for any changes. .

Q.

Cheshire Building Society is going to be our lender, is there anything I need to check?

A.

Traditionally, almost all solicitors could perform legal work for both buyers and mortgage lenders. Recently, a number of lenders are now reducing the size of their 'solicitor panel', potentially creating higher legal costs for purchasers. Homeward Legal will act on behalf of most lenders in the UK to keep legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

What amount of time may we budget for conveyancing generally need?

A.

The amount of time taken to transfer a property does vary. This is based on a number of concerns, for example, whether a mortgage is involved. With our specialist solicitors, your transaction is undertaken with the utmost care and speed.
