How do we find the best rates for conveyancing for a £682,000 residence?


This catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes. Often additional charges can inflate your solicitor's invoice.


What type of environmental searches concerning the risk of flooding in the Sheffield area will the Parson Cross conveyancing solicitor be able to conduct?


An experienced conveyancing lawyer conducts environmental searches that should include Parson Cross historical flood risk information. The most recent (27/02/13) publication on the Environment Agency website do not show any active flood warnings in the Parson Cross area.


Will charges for the conveyancing take into account any additional costs?


No. Homeward Legal's solicitors never hide any hidden fees for standard conveyancing work.


As a result of the serious flooding in York, Leeds and across Yorkshire we are wondering if environmental searches might not be detailed enough?

A qualified Parson Cross solicitor will apply for thorough environmental searches if the initial searches flag up a risk of flooding in Parson Cross.

For extra assurance you can get in touch with a neighbour of the property.


To complete on our purchase ASAP, can we arrange a fast conveyancing process?


Contacting a proactive solicitor is crucial to faster conveyancing. Consider the following:

  • Did you experience any delays when requesting a quote?
  • What methods of communication do they use? Posting documents can adds days of waiting to a purchase.
  • Are they 'no move, no fee'? This can incentivise a faster transaction.


How long can be planned for the legal work to transact a home take in Parson Cross?


The time needed to transfer a property is not wholly predictable, affected by several considerations. Nationwide, the average is around ten weeks, but we take a proactive approach, driving the sale or purchase to complete sooner.


How is Parson Cross contaminated land identified during the house-buying process?


Residential property can be contaminated by many factors caused by man and by nature. Contaminants like local waste transfer sites and civil aviation activity in the area will be investigated during the conveyancing process. Contamination in Parson Cross can be caused by local waste sites, such as Blackburn Meadows Stw, Alsing Road, South Yorkshire, S9 1HL.


Should I make use of a law firm put forward by the agent?


It is not uncommon for agents to recommend a law firm. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, an agent may decide to recommend the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.
