Q.

I am looking for discount conveyancing in Pitsea. Will we get a quote or and estimate?

A.

Many law firms offer theoretically cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately extra fees are frequently hidden in the terms of engagement. Extra charges included in terms and conditions ought to be reasonable and clear. The quote must also state costs to be paid to third parties, e.g. the Land Registry, (disbursments).Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Is it advisable that I get a chancel search if I am buying a Pitsea flat close by a 15th Century rectory?

A.

There are 15000 parishes across the UK. Property owners within some of these may be required to contribute towards the repair of a local church. A number of sources are used to identify liability, including maps of Pitsea's parish boundaries. Pitsea church properties where a chancel search may be necessary include St Gabriel.

Q.

I am buying a 1950s investment flat in a Pitsea conservation area. Where can I locate more information in relation to the state of repair?

A.

Following a campaign, English Heritage now maintain records in relation to the state of repair of conservation areas along with the vulnerability of the area.

Conservation areas in Pitsea are nominated by Basildon who manage everything from area development to poorly maintained pavements.

Q.

At what point is it appropriate to find a conveyancer?

A.

With a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, instructing as soon as possible is wise, as conveyancing involves several tasks that can begin very early in the process. Instructing your solicitor sooner for a sale means that information, especially from slow third-parties, can be requested even prior to accepting an offer, whereas if you are buying you can shave days off the process by having the details of your instructed solicitor ready when you make an offer.

Q.

National Counties Building Society is going to be our mortgage lender, what do I need to know?

A.

When organising a mortgage, a mortgage provider will need legal work to be undertaken in relation to the mortgage. A small number of lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel, resulting in higher legal costs for home buyers if their lawyer is unable to act both on their behalf, and for their lender. We, though, are able to act for many lenders in the UK to keep legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

I am looking to be moving from our period property just outside Pitsea into a home in Loughton . What is the right point to appoint a home removal company?

A.

Best advice is for home movers to avoid agreeing a removal firm until such time as both sides have formally agreed the move date that takes place once contracts have exchanged. For a local Essex company Norton & Sons, Rokeby Upper Avenue, Basildon, SS13 2LR Phone: 01268 726639.

Q.

How will my property lawyer in Pitsea investigate the potential risk of local flooding at Pitsea?

A.

A key step in the legal due diligence procedure involves a solicitor carrying out environmental searches that give some details on the Pitsea flood risk area. In addition your Pitsea conveyancing solicitor will sometimes recommend a more detailed specialist local search.
