Q.

Please confirm the cheapest fee for a 466,000 house? We are trying to find a discount conveyancing quote in Rumney.

A.

Many online and high street solicitors offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional costs are often hiding in small print. The conveyancing quote ought to define costs to be paid to third parties, such as the Land Registry, (disbursements). Any costs should be fair and clearly defined. They only be applied if the conveyancer must perform additional tasks on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our online quote calculator will generate an accurate quote for your transaction.

Q.

Should I get a chancel search? We are purchasing a flat conversion in Rumney.

A.

Some owners in Rumney can be required to fund repairs to older church buildings. Following the Land Registration Act 2002, interest over any affected land in Rumney must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search.

Q.

Recently, a number of lenders have limited the firms who can act for them. For buyers, this can result in significantly increased legal costs. Homeward Legal will act for all major lenders.

Q.

What amount of time may the legal work to sell a home take? The house being transacted is also in the area.

The amount of time required to transfer a home may vary. This is dependent on numerous issues such as where a party does not quickly respond an enquiry. We ensure your sale, purchase or remortgage receives communicative and proactive service, resulting in the fastest possible outcome.

Q.

Unfortunate financial circumstances dictate that we would prefer to complete on the sale of our maisonette very quickly, do you any particularly fast Rumney solicitors ?

A.

Generally Rumney solicitors can be far too slow which creates huge amounts of stress to the house moving process. We always work with lawyers who will always attempt to efficiently communicate through the whole of the buyer and seller chain . Moreover our lawyers are specifically chosen as they use leading edge online systems to drive through the property sale with minimal stress.
