Q.

How do we find low cost conveyancing?

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many buyers paying out more than they anticipated in the end. Many solicitors purport to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately additional fees will be included in the terms and conditions. This small print is often not read by buyers in a hurry. Additional charges should be reasonable. They only apply to matters if your solicitor must perform additional tasks on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.

Q.

Is molybdenum (Mo) found in Petworth soil?

A.

Petworth industry and natural causes can cause soil contamination. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including acidic compounds.

Q.

Does Petworth include many conservation areas?

A.

With over 8,000 protected areas in England, the local areas around Petworth will include a range of conservation areas. Living in a conservation area can mean protection

for trees and other flora, but the restrictions can add to maintenance costs. A conveyancing solicitor will address the consequences of purchasing property in a conservation area.

Q.

How is Petworth contaminated land investigated when buying a house?

A.

Land would be contaminated by several human activities, and an environmental search will confirm if a plot of land is impacted by contaminants in Petworth including proximity to waste sites and other sources of contaminated land.

Q.

Do I need a building survey?

A.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors firmly recommend that Petworth property purchasers order a RICS survey when you plan to buy in Petworth. A range issues affect a property. These include cracked roof tiles or failed double glazing. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.

Q.

We've got a conveyancing quote from you. Will there be any hidden fees?

A.

No. Homeward Legal's solicitors never hide any hidden extra charges regardless of circumstances.

Q.

When is it wise to find a conveyancing solicitor?

A.

If you choose a firm with 'no move, no fee' protection, the earlier, the better. Promptly instructing a conveyancing solicitor for a purchase may mean that your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed, or, if you are selling a property, documents can be prepared earlier, considerably accelerating the whole process.

Q.

How long will conveyancing legal work usually take, on average? The property is also local.

A.

The length of time required to transfer property will vary, influenced by a number of factors including whether there is a mortgage. With Homeward Legal, the matter is handled as fast as possible, without compromising on service.
