Q.

How do I find low cost conveyancing in Penrith?

A.

Several firms claim to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often extra fees may be added into the terms of engagement. Excited sellers and buyers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Extra fees included in the solicitor's terms needs to be fair and clearly defined. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

How much would the searches generally cost?

A.

With a Homeward Legal conveyancing solicitor, a purchase conveyancing client charged no more than £249 for the standard search bundle.

Q.

Do we need to be worried about gazumping?

A.

The practice of rejecting the first offer post-acceptance once another buyer makes a bigger offer is known as gazumping. There is almost always a danger of gazumping. Instructing an efficient solicitor as soon as you can should help to mitigate this risk.

Q.

How is Penrith contaminated land investigated when purchasing a property?

A.

Penrith property could be contaminated by several human activities. Issues like local historic industrial processes and sand or clay quarries will be reported on in environmental search results. Contamination can be caused by Penrith waste sites, including Kirkby Thore Works, Cumbria, CA10 1XU.

Q.

For fast conveyancing on the purchase of a £420,000 property, what can we do to accelerate the process?

A.

As is often reported, instructing a proactive conveyancing solicitor is the key to a fast conveyancing transaction. There are several things you as the purchaser can also do to speed up the process, such as, calling or emailing the conveyancing solicitor, and chase them if you suspect any delays, responding to your conveyancing solicitor by phone, fax or email wherever possible and arranging your mortgage offer.

Q.

When should I instruct a conveyancer to handle our purchase?

A.

With a firm offering a 'no move, no fee' conveyancing quote, the earlier in the process you can instruct a firm, the better. The legal work can then commence immediately. Some authors suggest waiting before instruction until an offer is accepted, but you will then be at a serious disadvantage in the event of a contract race, or buyer eager to move quickly.

Q.

Is your panel of solicitors set up to 28 day completions on the conveyancing for residential property auction properties in Penrith?

A.

Yes - Our property lawyers do frequently handle the legal work for buyers at auction. Conveyancers tend to suggest buyers at auction to formally instruct an experienced lawyer well in advance of the property auction to allow sufficient time for a thorough investigation of the sellers documents.

After the auction day arrives a lawyer should be prepared for rapidly get through the conveyancing process in 4 weeks, a requirement of standard auction conditions.

Q.

In what ways can my Penrith conveyancing solicitor report on the risk of flooding around Penrith?

A.
