Q.

How do I get the cheapest conveyancing solicitors?

A.

Many firms purport to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing'. However extra charges will be included in the solicitor's terms. These terms are often ignored by excited homeowners, eager to get underway. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

The estate agent we're using in Low Fell has put forward the solicitors firm who they generally use. Should I use them?

A.

Agent referrals are a commonplace path for purchasers to get a solicitor. These referrals should be compared to other online or local firms, as an agent may choose whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the most appropriate choice.

Q.

What sort of searches concerning the risk and history of floods around Wrexham will my lawyer in Penley actually do?

A.

A vital step in the conveyancing protocol involves your lawyer applying for conveyancing and environmental searches that provide you with details on the subject of the local Penley flood risk. The most recent (25/02/13) publication on the Environment Agency website do not list any active flood warnings in the Penley area.

Q.

Conveyancing solicitors in Penley apply for formal property conveyancing searches if instructed by a home purchaser - what specific searches?

A.

When you are getting a mortgage the lender will expect a solicitor to get at least a specified set of searches, including the following Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environmental and occasionally less common searches, which may include a Index Map Search (SIM).

Q.

For a lender, we have chosen Britannia - what will we need to know?

A.

A small number of lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel'. For buyers, this can result in significantly increased legal costs. Homeward Legal are able to act for many lenders, ensuring that an additional solicitor will not be required to act for your lender.

Q.

We need to know which Penley lenders you work with. Which panels are you on?

A.

Most lenders in Penley are on our Penley solicitors' panel. Local mortgage lenders and brokers include Millfield Consulting, 19 Alyn Dr, Rossett, Wrexham, LL12 0HQ, Mortgage Advice Bureau, 35-37 King St, Wrexham, LL11 1HR, and James Adam, Pant Teg/Ffordd Isaf, Gwynfryn, Wrexham, LL11 5TS.

Q.

Is soil in Penley contaminated by mercury?

A.

Effort is made on a local and national level to identify and remediate top-soil contamination. Metal contamination of top-soil in Penley is more likely to occur near factories and other industrial sites. Data on other contaminants, like groundwater contaminants like household chemicals, will also be included in an environmental search.

Q.

What do we need to be aware of if we invest in a modified home in a Shropshire council conservation area ?

A.

Shropshire council LLC1 searches conducted by your solicitor as part of the conveyancing will find out the existence of suitable consent for any changes to the property.
