Q.

We are trying to find affordable conveyancing, we are on a tight budget.

A.

Several firms claim to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing, but extra costs can inflate the final bill. Fees included in your solicitor's terms needs to be fair. The online quote calculator can generate an accurate statement of the legal fees for the property you plan to buy.

Q.

Is your panel of solicitors experienced enough to handle fast completions on the conveyancing for property auction properties in Raunds?

A.

Homeward Legal do frequently work for buyers at auction. Solicitors invariably suggest bidders to instruct an affordable property lawyer well in advance of the auction to allow adequate time for a title report of the auction legal papers.

Subsequently, immediately after the auction, your property lawyer will be able to concentrate on get through the legal side of things in under 28 days after exchange as required by the terms of sale.

Q.

Are there many buyers in Raunds gazumped?

A.

Gazumping takes place when a seller accepts a purchaser's offer and then dismisses it in favour of a higher offer. Though being gazumped is uncommon when property prices are falling, there is still a risk. Consider instructing a solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer to reduce the chance of your offer being gazumped.

Q.

Are there many areas of conservation in Raunds?

A.

There are a range of conservation areas in or near Raunds. Your solicitor will provide more details.

Q.

Environmental searches may be standard procedure for home buyers but in light of recent flooding for instance the flooding in Sept 2012 in the East Midlands are they comfort enough to confirm enough about the local Raunds flood risk?

A.

Your solicitor in Raunds should also get environmental searches (Landmark database search) if the environmental searches identifies any kind of local Raunds flood risk.

You can always speak to a next door neighbour for some more assurance if still concerned.

Q.

If a contaminated plot is found in an Raunds environmental search, can the soil be cleaned up cheaply?

A.

Remediation of contaminated land in Raunds can often be possible, although it can be expensive. A local service provider like P & H Landscapes, 6 Windmill Av, Raunds, Wellingborough, NN9 6JX may be able to provide further information.

Q.

Is a contract race fee a disbursement or fee?

A.

Fees and disbursements should be clearly stated on your quote. This charge is a fee not a disbursement, but some solicitors do charge extra for this.

Q.

Is it a good idea to take care of the DIY conveyancing on my own.

A.

Should you want to use the various books to steer you, you can practically carry out the legal process without formally instructing a proficient solicitor in Raunds. All lawyers would suggest that this is a risky course of action DIY lawyers will not be covered by the appropriate indemnity insurance that all solicitors firms are liable to be required to get.
