Q.

What are the best conveyancing rates for a £458k property?

A.

This catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many solicitors advertise theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. Often additional costs will be included in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Any extra fees which are listed in your solicitor's terms ought to be clearly defined and be applicable solely where your lawyer must complete unanticipated additional work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Any disbursements to be paid should also be clearly stated on the conveyancing quote. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Are there many designated conservation areas in Oldland?

A.

Areas deemed to be of historical merit, such as model housing estates, will be designated as conservation areas. You may wish to contact the council for more information, but your lawyer will address this during the conveyancing process.

Q.

Do Homeward Legal do the legal conveyancing of residential property auction properties in Oldland?

A.

Our firm is very knowledgeable with bidders at auction. Very often unusually constructed homes are listed at auction which tend to demand deeper legwork by the property lawyer Solicitors therefore suggest that buyers instruct a SRA regulated lawyer well in advance of the auction day for a detailed review

of the legal papers. Immediately following the day of the auction a prepared lawyer needs to be ready for finalise the legal side of things within a month as usually required by the terms and conditions of sale.
