Q.

I need to find a low cost conveyancing quote. What are the risks?

A.

Several property lawyers offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes. Often extra fees are frequently hidden in the terms that property buyers and sellers often do not check. The conveyancing quote must also state any disbursements. Any extra fees which are listed in the terms should be reasonable and clear and only be applied if your lawyer must perform additional tasks in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

Should we get a property surveyor to review this house purchase?

A.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors recommend that you book a house survey. There can be a wide range of issues which can negatively affect a property, for example rotten roof timbers. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.

Q.

Will a report on title prepared by the Ruddington property solicitor give details about the cost of the council tax on a Band G house prior to exchange?

A.

A conveyancer will write to the governing Rushcliffe local authority to reveal the applicable council tax rates, which will then be set out in the report on title. Correct rates for homes in Ruddington are tabled online at the Rushcliffe local authority site. On, 08 January 2013, the different rates are:

  • Band A - £1,069.00
    >
  • Band B - £1,248.00
  • Band C - £1,426.00
  • Band D - £1,604.00
  • Band E - £1,960.00
  • Band F - £2,317.00
  • Band G - £2,673.00
  • Band H - £3,208.00

Q.

Flood risk searches are standard procedure for home buyers but in light of recent events for example the widespread flooding in Sept 2012 in the East Midlands are they the best way to check sufficient information about the local Ruddington flood risk?

A.

Your Ruddington conveyancing solicitor should always include flood searches if the standard search flags up a significant risk of flooding in Ruddington

Sometimes buyers also converse with a neighbour of the property to get further information.

Q.

What actual conveyancing searches will my Ruddington conveyancing solicitor carry out when instructed on a Ruddington building?

A.

The normal procedure will be to get Local Authority, Drainage Search (Con29DW), Environment Search and Gypsum, and possibly area-specific searches for instance a SIM.

Q.

Do your panel of solicitors do the conveyancing of auction properties in Ruddington?

A.

Our firm is very capable working with sellers at auction. Quite often unusual buildings are sold in auctions which require extended exploration prior to exchange. Homeward Legal therefore advise buyers at auction to instruct an experienced conveyancing solicitor well in advance of the date of the auction to allow time for a full report of the sellers documents. Following the auction day arrives a lawyer will be focused on finish the legal work in under 28 days as typically required by the terms and conditions of sale.

Q.

Do you work with mortgage lenders with Ruddington offices?
