Q.

On the purchase of a 92,000 house, what will be the fees? We need a fixed rate conveyancing quote.

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many buyers and sellers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned. Many solicitors advertise theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing', but extra fees may be added into the terms and conditions. A quote ought to define any disbursements.Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

Q.

What is gazumping?

A.

Gazumping takes place when a property seller agrees to one buyer's offer and then rejects it in favour of a higher offer. This may happen weeks into a sale. There is almost always a risk of being gazumped. You should instruct your conveyancing solicitor as soon as possible to reduce the chance of gazumping.

Q.

The current owner appears to have installed inappropriate artificial stone cladding to the flat which we think may break Ross conservation area rules.

A.

Forest of Dean council enquiries conducted by a property lawyer as part of the conveyancing should identify if the property is in a conservation area and any evidence of planning consent for changes to the property will be required. In the absence of any the necessary permissions, your conveyancing

solicitor will recommend all options, which include seeking from Forest of Dean local authority or getting covered by an indemnity policy.

Q.

I am buying in Ross On Wye, and need to know if there are any designated conservation areas.

A.

Areas considered to be of historical or architectural value, like 18th century suburbs, may be designated as conservation areas. Conservation areas in Ross On Wye include Ross. You may wish to contact the local authority for more detail, but your property solicitor will address this during the conveyancing process.

Q.

For a fast conveyancing transaction on the purchase of a £618,000 house, how can we speed things up?

A.

Experienced buyers will tell you that moving faster is key to instruct a communicative conveyancer. There are a range of tasks you as the purchaser could do, such as, pushing the conveyancer to begin enquiries as soon as possible, replying to your conveyancer by phone, fax or email and getting your mortgage offer in place.

Q.

I am buying in Ross On Wye, and have had a quote from you. Will there be any hidden fees?

A.

Our solicitors never charge any additional fees regardless of circumstances. Some websites offer unrealistically low 'quotes' which are in fact estimates, which they will not be bound to.

Q.

My mortgage lender is Barclays Bank - what will we need to know?

A.

Buyers should be aware that, in some cases, lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel. This can mean higher legal costs for house purchasers. Homeward Legal, however, can act for all large lenders so that the buyer will not have to pay the lender's legal fees.

Q.

Can you confirm which Ross On Wye lenders your solicitors work with. Which panels are you a member of?

A.

Most lenders in Ross On Wye are on our solicitors' panels. Local mortgage lenders and brokers include Santander, 32 High St, Ross-On-Wye, HR9 5HD.
