Q.

What are the best rates for conveyancing for a 677,000 house?

A.

Many online and high street property lawyers claim to offer so-called cheap conveyancing. Often additional charges can inflate your final bill. Any extra fees should be fair and reasonable and be applicable solely where the solicitor must complete additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

How can we check if a residence is in a conservation area?

A.

Parts of Oval considered be of historical or architectural value, like 18th century suburbs, may be designated as conservation areas. You may wish to contact the local authority for more detail, but your conveyancing lawyer will investigate this in detail during the property transaction.

Q.

When you are getting a mortgage the building society of bank insist that at least specific searches, including these searches - Local Authority, Drainage Search and Environment Search, as well as any area-specific searches e.g. a Development reports.

Q.

My lender is Coventry Building Society - what do we need to consider?

A.

Some lenders have reduced the number of firms able to act for them. Homeward Legal will act for most lenders, ensuring that an additional solicitor will not be required to act for your lender.

Q.

How can conveyancing for a sale take weeks to complete?

A.

The conveyancing process could be delayed even in ideal circumstances. Sometimes, these reasons are regrettably beyond your solicitor's influence, we, however, strive to reduce the burden of these delays whenever it is feasible. Common delays can include the length of time it takes for the managing agent or landlord to respond to queries.

Q.

When do I need to find a conveyancer?

A.

In simple terms, the sooner you instruct a conveyancing solicitor, the better, as there are a number of tasks which may be performed very early in the process. Some sources recommend postponing instruction until an offer has been firmly agreed, but doing so will put you at a disadvantage compared to better prepared buyers, or if your buyer decides to pull out due to delays.

Q.

Would acquiring a building survey be required when buying a house?

A.

Homeward Legal advise that all purchasers in Oval instruct a surveyor when you plan to buy in Oval. A range issues affect a property, for example unsafe chimney circulation or corrosion of pipework.
