Q.

How can we ensure our cheap quote is fixed? I need a discount conveyancing quote.

A.

This affects many buyers who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process. Many conveyancers promote cheap conveyancing. However additional charges are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms. Any additional fees listed in the solicitor's terms should be clearly defined and only apply to matters if your solicitor must complete unanticipated additional work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The online quote calculator can generate an accurate statement of the legal fees for the property you plan to buy.

Q.

Unfortunate personal circumstances dictate that we have to get going and complete on the legal work on our leasehold apartment very quickly, do Homeward Legal have any really fast Shefford conveyancers ?

Q.

In respect to the Met Office projecting more intense rainfall in the future, we are wondering whether flood risk searches won't be sufficient?

Q.

Do you have good solicitors that get involved in the conveyancing for property auction properties in Shefford?

A.

Our company is able to work with auction buyers and sellers. Conveyancers typically recommend auction buyers to appoint a SRA regulated lawyer well in advance of the actual auction for a detailed report of the documents.

Post day of bidding a prepared lawyer should be geared up to carry out the conveyancing process in under the 4 week time frame, a requirement of conditions of sale.

Q.

For fast conveyancing to buy a £675k property, what do we need to arrange?

A.

As is often reported, contacting a proactive and experienced lawyer is crucial to buying faster. There are, in addition, several things you as the purchaser can also do. These include:

  • requesting regular updates from your lawyer and keep the pressure on
  • answering any queries raised by the lawyer as soon as possible
  • arranging any finances require to complete the purchase

Q.

If I am buying in the parish of Bromham with Oakley annexed, will we need a chancel search?

A.

Your conveyancing solicitor could advise that a chancel search is ordered. In older areas of Shefford, chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. For property in the parish of Bromham with Oakley annexed, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.
