Q.

I am looking for a cheap solicitor quote to purchase a home. Will we get a quote or and estimate?

A.

Various solicitors offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional fees may be added into the terms which buyers may have not read carefully Any disbursements must also be stated on your conveyancing quote Any charges listed in terms of engagement ought to be fair. They be applicable if your solicitor is required to complete extra work for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Do property searches affect a decision to buy?

A.

Conveyancing searches are an accepted pack of queries ordered for the buyer. They will not identify structural issues like cavity wall tie failure.

Q.

Bookshops and the web both have a number of helpful handbooks giving details on DIY conveyancing. Do I really need to spend money on a Nuneaton lawyer ?

A.

There are no arguments why a home buyer cannot carry out the greater majority of the legal process without the help of a proficient conveyancing solicitor in Nuneaton. In reality however, a Nuneaton lawyer is familiar with a long list of assignments e.g. chasing outstanding papers or applying for searches many of which require the relevant training.

Q.

Nuneaton property solicitors do official property conveyancing searches when acting for a purchase client, which actual ones?

A.

If taking out a mortgage, your lender mandates particular searches, including the following for properties in Nuneaton: Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW) and Environmental and perhaps area-specific searches, like a HS2 report.

Q.

As a result of the major flooding in 2012 in the Midlands we are questioning if flood risk searches aren't sufficient?

A.

Flood risk searches handled by your property solicitor in Nuneaton should also include the far more rigorous search (Landmark) if required.

Perhaps you could converse with a close neighbour to get further comfort or local Warwickshire flood damage expert, for example: Allworks Property Maintenance, 58 Montrose Drive, Nuneaton, CV10 7LX Tel: 024 76328601.

Q.

The estate agent we are using in Bournville has named the property lawyer. Should I use this solicitor?

A.

Agent recommendations are a common practice way to find a solicitor, however, such referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, including online or local firms, as there is a risk that the agent may suggest the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.

Q.

Is a postage, photocopying and phone calls fee a fee or disbursement?

A.

Some solicitors frequently hide extra costs as necessary disbursements. It is not always clear whether a cost is a disbursement or not, and whether it should be included. This cost is a fee not a disbursement. It should be included in your conveyancing quote.

Q.

How is Nuneaton contaminated land investigated?

A.

Residential property can be contaminated by a broad range of environmental concerns, and an environmental search will confirm that a property may be impacted by local contaminants such as a proximate telecommunications base station. Griff No 4 Quarry, Gipsy Lane, Warwickshire, CV10 7PH is a source of potential contamination in Nuneaton.
