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.

Will your conveyancer in Oldland do any property conveyancing searches on the Gloucestershire Regency terraced house I want to buy?

A.

The conventional conveyancing procedure is to get Local Authority, Drainage Search (Con29DW) and Environment Search and occasionally less common searches for example Official Search of Whole or Part without Priority (OS3).

Q.

Is it important that we get a chancel search? I am buying a flat conversion next to a church constructed in the 13th Century in Oldland.

A.

The result of a landmark case 10 years ago confirmed that chancel repair liability could be enforced. A chancel search confirms that such a liability exists. Ecclesiastical properties in the local area include St Anne.

Q.

Could the legal fees have any additional fees?

We never hide any additional fees. Some solicitors only estimate conveyancing costs, meaning that you could pay much more when you complete.

Q.

For a lender, we have chosen Dudley Building Society, what do we need to know?

A.

Buyers should be aware that, recently, a number of lenders are now reducing the size of their 'solicitor panel', resulting in increased conveyancing costs for buyers if the lender insists upon their own solicitor . Homeward Legal are able to act for many mortgage lenders, ensuring that an additional solicitor will not be required to act for your lender.

Q.

As a result of the extensive flooding in Sept 2012 in South West England I am questioning if property environmental searches aren't thorough enough?

A.

An experienced Oldland property solicitor will advise you to include flood risk searches if the environmental conveyancing searches identifies any kind of Oldland flooding risk.

You could also try to converse with a local resident for extra local information.

Q.

Can we get our skates on and complete on the conveyancing process on an apartment within 28 days, do you use fast Oldland property lawyers ?

By investing in cutting edge integrated systems .

We always also allocate sellers a SRA lawyer prepared to communicate by phone and email with everyone in the buyer and seller chain like landlords, to reach a quick move.
