Q.

We need to find a cheap solicitor quote to own a house. and what is included?

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many buyers and sellers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned. Many law firms claim to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional charges will be included in small print which buyers and sellers may have not read carefully The quote should also state any disbursements.Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.

Q.

What amount of time may be planned for the legal work to transfer a house require, on average?

A.

Generally speaking, the amount of time taken to sell or purchase residential property varies, dependent on potentially many legal considerations such as whether a mortgage is involved. 8 to 12 weeks is the average for many firms, whereas our solicitors work towards four to six weeks, wherever possible.

Q.

What are Ponthir conveyancing searches?

Conveyancing searches are a set of queries ordered by your solicitor, which may include a limestone search. These do not relate to defects such as unsafe chimney circulation.

Q.

How is Ponthir contaminated land investigated?

A.

Land in Ponthir would be contaminated by numerous natural causes. Issues like masts or pylons will be investigated during the conveyancing process.

Q.

Should we be concerned about gazumping?

A.

The practice of rejecting the first offer post-acceptance once another buyer makes a bigger offer is known as gazumping. Because acceptance of an offer is not binding on the seller until exchange of contracts, there is a danger of gazumping. The first step in reducing the chance that gazumping will effect you is to instruct a solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer.

Q.

I am intending to purchase a home in Penterry. Should we get a chancel search?

A.

The property lawyer could advise a chancel search. Through some Parochial Church Councils have exercised their right to exact chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, a solicitor cannot state with certainty that a parish which has not imposed liability will not automatically be the case for future owners, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.

Q.

What would the searches cost?

A.

With a Homeward Legal conveyancing solicitor, clients buying a property charged at most £249 for a standard search bundle.

Q.

Does 'fixtures and fittings' include things like curtains?

A.

Commonly, fixtures are fixed items, such as light fixtures to walls, floors or ceilings and fixtures are free-standing items, such as sideboards. This is an issue which is frequently overlooked, making agreement of a comprehensive list of included items so essential.
