We need to find fixed rate conveyancing. Can you assist?


Various firms promote supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however extra fees are frequently hidden in small print that unknowing homeowners have not reviewed Extra costs listed in your solicitor's terms needs to be fair. They only be applied if your solicitor must complete work beyond standard conveyancing in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


What amount of time should the legal work to transfer a home take, on average? The property is also local.


The time required to transact a property varies, with reference to a range of aspects. With our solicitors, your sale or purchase is handled as fast as possible, without compromising on service.


Which body is responsible for policing the condition of neglect the conservation areas in Roade?


English Heritage, a government body, maintain information of the state of conservation areas in addition to the exposure to deterioration or improvement. Conservation area concerns, such as private spaces, loft extensions or ugly parking meters are handled by the local authority (Northampton).


As a result of the widespread flooding in Sept 2012 in the East Midlands we are thinking that flood risk searches won't be sufficient?

A competent Roade conveyancing solicitor will consider get additional conveyancing searches (environmental) if the standard searches spots a Roade flood risk.

Why not converse with a local resident for added insight.


I am buying a medieval barn conversion in Desborough. Are we advised to get a chancel search?


A solicitor should confirm that a chancel search be taken out, irrespective of the parish in which the home being purchased is located. Through some Parochial Church Councils have decided to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of affected property, there is no guarantee that a parish which has not been subject to chancel liability in the past will not continue to be so. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.


How might conveyancing work to buy in Roade be so drawn out?


The legal work required to buy or sell property may suffer setbacks. We work hard to lessen the impact of these delays by pushing all parties involved.


What can a Roade conveyancing solicitor recommend if the property we am buying is located in a Northampton council conservation area which seems to have ugly new windows fitted to it?


Northampton planning authority LLC1 searches conducted by a solicitor in the process of the conveyancing will establish the existence of the appropriate consent for additions to the building.

In the event that no local authority consents be available your solicitor will advise you of the alternatives which can include obtaining an indemnity policy or getting retrospective consent from the council.


My estate agent has referred the conveyancing solicitor whom they usually use. Should I use them?


An agent may recommend a law firm to handle your conveyancing. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, some agents choose the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.
