Q.

How do we find the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Preston Park?

A.

Several conveyancers advertise theoretically cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately additional charges may pad your final bill. Additionals included in the terms ought to be reasonable. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

What specific property conveyancing searches should a lawyer in Preston Park apply for when instructed on a Preston Park house?

A.

The conventional procedure will be to get Local Authority (council), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal), Environmental and Gypsum, and possibly less common searches such as Official Search of Whole or Part without Priority (OS3).

Q.

Is it recommended that I get a chancel search if we are buying in Preston Park near parish land?

A.

There are fifteen thousand ecclesiastical parishes across England and Wales. Owners of property within some of these may be required to cover the cost of the repair of a local church. Some names or words such as 'Glebe Farm' give an indication of a property's history, and thus whether chancel liability may apply.

Q.

My mortgage lender will be The Woolwich - what do we need to check?

A.

Over the last two years, some lenders have decreased the number of firms on their approved panel. This can mean increased conveyancing costs for property purchasers. Homeward Legal, however, will act for the majority of UK mortgage lenders so that you will not be required to pay your lender's legal costs.

Q.

How will a Preston Park conveyancer report on the potential risk of possible flooding in the Preston Park area?

A.

A critical component in the conveyancing procedure of buying a property involves your conveyancing solicitor conducting conveyancing and environmental searches that set out specific information on the Preston Park historical flood risk.

Q.

How could conveyancing work in Preston Park need such a long time? The last solicitor we used felt very slow.

A.

The Preston Park conveyancing process could be held up even where there is no chain. Sometimes, these delays are unfortunately beyond a solicitor's influence, Homeward Legal, however, know the needless stress these can cause and seek to minimise their impact, if it is possible to do so, by driving the sale or purchase forward.

Q.

Will a report on title prepared by the conveyancing solicitor in Preston Park investigate the amount of council tax for a Band D house prior to completing on the purchase?

A.

A conveyancer will speak to the local authority to ascertain the appropriate council tax rates, which will then be set out in the conveyancing report on title. Correct charges for Preston Park are set out in detail online at the council site.

Q.

How many weeks may the conveyancing process usually take? We have a buyer ready.

A.

The time needed to sell or purchase a residence does vary, with reference to a range of concerns. These could include when 3rd parties fail to promptly answer queries. Our conveyancing solicitors work hard to ensure your sale or purchase is undertaken as quickly as possible.
