Q.

How do I get a cheap solicitor quote for buying a property?

A.

Confusion over this issue catches out many home owners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many property lawyers promote 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional costs will be included in the small print which unwary home owners fail to check. Any additional charges which are listed in terms of engagement should be reasonable and come into force only if your conveyancer must complete additional work for you, 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.

Q.

Bank of Ireland Mortgages is our mortgage lender - what will I need to know?

A.

When taking out a mortgage to buy a property, legal work must be undertaken in relation to the mortgage. Buyers should be aware that some lenders are now limiting the firms who can act for them, which may result in greater conveyancing costs for house purchasers. We are able to act on behalf of most CML-approved lenders, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

If I am intending to purchase in the parish of Hastings All Saints, do we need a chancel search?

A.

A conveyancing solicitor may suggest that a chancel search be taken out. Although some Parochial Church Councils have chosen to exact chancel repairs on owners of land subject to chancel liability, it is not possible to be certain that a parish where dues have not recently been paid will not continue to be so, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.

Q.

What environmental concerns can affect land in Robertsbridge, and are they properly investigated?

A.

Numerous of contaminants could lessen the value of property in Robertsbridge, such as masts or pylons or proximity to landfill sites. An environmental search can provide much more clarity. Contamination can be caused by Robertsbridge waste sites, including Robertsbridge Gypsum Works, East Sussex, TN32 5LA.

Q.

What does a Robertsbridge conveyancing solicitor do if the property we are planning to buy is situated in a local authority conservation area and has conspicuous windows added?

A.

The local authority Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search conducted by a solicitor should check if the Robertsbridge property a designated conservation area proof of permission for modifications will be required.

Q.

What length of time does I budget for conveyancing take?

A.

For the majority of buyers and sellers, the time required to sell or purchase residential property does vary, based on a broad set of aspects which can include whether the property being bought or sold is leasehold. With our property specialists, your move is handled as fast as possible, without compromising on service.

Q.

What is gazumping?

A.

Gazumping describes circumstances where a property owner accepts a lower offer, then refuses it, choosing instead a higher offer. Although gazumping is less common in a declining market, there will always be a danger. You should instruct a solicitor early to reduce the chance of your transaction being gazumped.

Q.

We are buying in Robertsbridge on a new development brownfield site. Could the topsoil be contaminated by industrial waste?

A.

Soil contamination by industrial waste, including metals, will have occurred in parts of Robertsbridge. Data on many contaminants, such as groundwater contaminants like phenols and acidic compounds, will be included in an environmental search.
