Q.

How do I find a cheap solicitor in Ongar for purchasing a residence?

A.

Several solicitors purport to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing, however extra charges may be added into the small print. Any extra charges which are listed in the terms should be reasonable and clear. They only apply in cases where your conveyancer is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

Q.

Which of the Ongar lender panels are your solicitors on?

A.

We work with the vast majority of lenders. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Ongar, including Burridge.Eu, 539 High Rd, Woodford Green, IG8 0RA, Mortgage Hunter 2000, 57 Fairholme Av, Romford, RM2 5UR, and TLC Financial Services Ltd, Gothic House/1 High St, Harlow, CM17 0DN. Your solicitor will be able to advise further.

Q.

Can we establish whether the property we are buying is in a conservation area?

A.

These areas detail local areas defined as being of 'special architectural and historic interest'. These restrictions may impose liability on a buyer for unauthorised alterations made by previous owners, but the benefits will include protection for trees and other flora. Your conveyancing solicitor will be able to provide more details.

Q.

The web is awash an abundance of publications on the subject of how to do DIY conveyancing for example Bradshaw's Guide to Diy House Buying Selling and Conveyancing. That being the case, do I need to instruct a property solicitor in Ongar ?

Technically there is absolutely no argument why a home seller cant look after the greater majority of the your own conveyancing unaided. In reality however, a conveyancing solicitor in Ongar is in charge of a significant number of functions such as chasing replies to enquiries or dealing with requisition on os1 many of which really need training. Furthermore solicitors practices always carry the applicable insurance that protects you from any carelessness.

Q.

Might the charges for our conveyancing conceal any supplementary hidden charges?

A.

No. Homeward Legal never charge any hidden costs. Some firms only provide estimates disguised as quotes, meaning that you could pay much more when you complete.

Q.

How long can the legal work to sell a house usually take? We are buying in Ongar.

A.

The amount of time required to transfer a house varies. This is according to a range of considerations such as the tenure of the property. Nationally, the average is up to twelve weeks, whereas Homeward Legal take a proactive approach, driving the sale or purchase to complete sooner.

Q.

Where do I see whether the Ongar conservation area is not being properly maintained?

A.

Local conservation areas are created by Brentwood who regulate everything from including things like plastic box signs, removal of chimney stacks and upkeep of paths. English Heritage, a government body, have created a detailed list of the state of conservation areas in addition to the vulnerability of the area.

Q.

What does the Ongar property lawyer do if the building we hope to invest in is situated in a conservation area and has conspicuous roof aerials added?

A.

Brentwood local authority Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search carried out by the solicitor during the conveyancing process will confirm if the property is within a conservation area proof of council approval for changes to the property will be requested. Should no appropriate consents be in evidence your Ongar conveyancing solicitor will inform you of all options, which include seeking an indemnity insurance policy or obtaining retrospective consent from the council.
