Q.

How do we get the best conveyancing rates in Romney for a £582,000 house?

A.

Many solicitors offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing', but additional fees are often hiding in the terms of engagement, left unregarded by busy buyers Additional fees which are listed in terms of engagement needs to be reasonable and only apply in cases where your solicitor must complete additional work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The quote should state any disbursements to be paid.Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

How do I stop being gazumped?

A.

Gazumping occurs when a property seller agrees to an offer, only to refuse it in favour of a second purchaser's offer. Because acceptance of an offer is not binding on the seller until exchange of contracts, there is a chance of gazumping. The first step in reducing the chance that gazumping will effect you is to instruct your conveyancing solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer.

Q.

Should I get searches for chancel liability if you are buying a flat near a rectory built in the 1200s in Romney?

A.

Owners of property near to church property in the locality may be required to contribute towards the cost of repairs. This is referred to as chancel repair liability. Insurance may be available to protect a buyer should a Romney Parochial Church Council enforce liability.

Q.

Are there any conservation areas in Romney?

A.

Parts of Romney considered be of special architectural or historic interest, like stretches of canals, may be registered as conservation areas. Your property solicitor will be able to advise further and address the impact buying in a conservation area may have.

Q.

As a result of the fact that 4 of the top 5 wettest years recorded were in last 10-12 years we are wondering if conveyancing searches aren't thorough enough?

A.

The property lawyer in Romney should also get flood searches if the initial search spots a significant risk Romney area flood risk

People sometimes try to also contact a neighbour of the property for some more confidence.

Q.

An unpredictable set of financial circumstances dictate that we want to move quickly and exchange on the sale of a flat in under 30 days, do you have very fast Romney solicitors ?

A.

Regularly property lawyers are sluggish which creates large amounts of stress to the home selling process.

Homeward Legals solicitors approach is different as we have invested in cutting edge HMRC and Land Registry integrated systems . Importantly we always give you a expert panel of solicitor incentivised to communicate through all parts of the buyer and seller chain .

Q.

I am buying in Romney with UCB Home Loans, what do I need to know?

A.

Over the last two years, some lenders have reduced the number of firms able to act for them. Homeward Legal will act on behalf of most lenders so that you will not be required to pay the lender's legal fees.

Q.

The web is full of a plethora of very helpful manuals going into great depth on by passing the solicitor e.g. leasehold Flats & Houses a supplement to Bradshaw's Guide to DIY House Buying, Selling & Conveyancing . That being the case, do I need to instruct a Romney conveyancer ?

A.

There are no arguments why you should not look after the greater majority of the legal process without the help of a dedicated conveyancing solicitor in Romney. That said, a conveyancing solicitor takes care of a significant number of actions e.g. chasing deeds and applying for searches many of which need adequate training.
