Q.

How do I find a discount conveyancing quote?

A.

Both high-street and online property lawyers offer cheap conveyancing, however extra costs are often hiding in the terms which unwary homeowners fail to check. Any disbursements to be paid should be included on your quote. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.

When in the process should we instruct a conveyancer in Shaftesbury?

A.

If you use a solicitor offering a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, the earlier in the process you can instruct a solicitor, the better, as there are a number of tasks that can be carried out immediately. Some groups suggest waiting before instruction until the offer is accepted, but delays can risk the other side pulling out, particularly in uncertain market conditions.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Shaftesbury?

A.

Shaftesbury is located in Dorset County Council, County Hall, Coliton Park, Dorchester DT1 1XJ Tel: 01306 251 000

Q.

We are buying on a ex-industrial site. Is the top-soil likely to be contaminated by waste minerals like cadmium?

A.

Shaftesbury industrial or agricultural can cause soil contamination. Data on many contaminants, such as water contaminants such as sewage, will be included in an environmental search.

Q.

For what reason does purchase conveyancing legal work take weeks to complete?

A.

Conveyancing could take more time than budgeted, Homeward Legal, however, seek to reduce the effect of these delays if it can be achieved by pushing all parties involved. Delays include slow solicitors acting for the other side.

Q.

We are purchasing in Shaftesbury with Birmingham Midshires - what will I need to know?

A.

In some cases, lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel'. Homeward Legal are able to act for the vast majority of CML-approved lenders, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

Do your panel of solicitors a lot of experience at the legal conveyancing of property auction properties in Shaftesbury?

A.

Our recommended conveyancing solicitors often do the legal work for bidders at auction. Our solicitors and licensed conveyancers have acted for numerous buyers at national and local property auctions including Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London, Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.

Adept purchasers will formally instruct a good lawyer as fast as they can to allow for a title report of the legal pack well in advance of the day of the auction.

After the actual auction, your property lawyer has to be focused on finish the conveyancing inside the usual 28 days as usually required by the terms and conditions of sale.

Q.

What particular search enquiries will my Shaftesbury property solicitor do when instructed on a Shaftesbury flat?

A.

The customary legal procedure is to get Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal), Environment Search, Tin Search and Clay Search and, depending on certain criteria, area-specific searches, which might include Cheshire Brine Search.
