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.

Might charges for the conveyancing cover any hidden fees?

A.

Unfortunately, hidden fees are relatively common. We will never charge any hidden fees. Our conveyancing quotes offer an accurate fee.

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.

Having heard about the groundwater flooding in Dorset, we are apprehensive that property conveyancing searches won't be sufficient?

The solicitor in Shaftesbury should always carry out specialist food risk searches (Landmark database search) if the standard search determines a significant risk.

You may be able to converse with a neighbour to get more local history if you are still worried.

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.

Do we need to select the lawyer that works with by my local agent?

A.

An agent in Ravenglass can influence a solicitor they refer many clients to, and can therefore pressure a slow solicitor to work faster. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, the agent may prefer to suggest the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.

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.

How much time can the legal work to transact an apartment take? The house being transacted is also in the area.

A.

The number of weeks needed to transfer property is not wholly predictable, influenced by potentially many issues affecting the property. These could include where management information is required. Our lawyers strive to ensure the matter is handled quickly, and to the highest standard of service.
