Q.

We are looking for a discount conveyancing quote. What do I need to check for?

A.

This catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many solicitors offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. However additional costs can inflate the solicitor's invoice. Additional fees found in your solicitor's terms should be fair and reasonable. Your conveyancing quote should, in addition, define costs to be paid to third parties, e.g. the Land Registry, (disbursements).

Q.

What causes the conveyancing process in Reigate appear to be so drawn out?

A.

The Reigate conveyancing process will occasionally experience delays even in the best of circumstances. Some delays are unfortunately out of the solicitors' hands. We appreciate how disruptive they may be and endeavour to reduce their cost whenever it is feasible.

Q.

I am buying in Reigate, and have had a quote from you. Will there be any extra costs?

A.

No. We never hide any hidden extra costs. Some conveyancers give 'quotes' which are in fact estimates. The bill you receive on completion can be much greater.

Q.

How much would our searches cost?

A.

With Homeward Legal, you will be expected to pay at most £249 for a standard search bundle. Searches are disbursements, and will not be included in a solicitor's fees.

Q.

How long does be planned for conveyancing legal work require?

A.

The amount of time required to transfer a residence does vary. This is based on a number of issues such as when a third party is slow to respond. The national average is 8 to 12 weeks, we however drive the process forwards, completing within eight weeks.

Q.

What can a Reigate conveyancing solicitor do if the property we hope to purchase is situated in a registered conservation area and has ugly satellite dishes added?

A.

The conveyancing solicitor will see if the property is located within a conservation area, and if so whether any modifications have the essential consent.

Q.

What are 'conveyancing searches'?

A.

Searches are standard enquiries carried out on behalf of the purchaser. Searches are not surveys and will not identify structural issues.

Q.

What sort of flood plain searches into the risk of flooding around Surrey will a solicitor in Reigate actually do?

A.

A necessary step in the legal process of buying a property involves the lawyer carrying out environmental searches that go in certain details regarding Reigate area flood risk. Also as an additional measure a property lawyer in Reigate could possibly advocate a more involved (e.g. Landmark) detailed search.
