Q.

I am trying to find a property solicitor that offers cheap conveyancing, we are on a tight budget.

A.

This catches out many sellers and buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many property lawyers purport to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often additional fees are often hiding in the terms and conditions. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the solicitors' fees, based on the property you are buying.

Q.

Our lender is Earl Shilton Building Society - is there anything we need to know?

A.

Recently, a number of lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel', which may result in higher conveyancing costs for buyers. Homeward Legal, however, will act for many lenders to ensure that you will not need to pay any additional legal fees to your lender's solicitor.

Q.

What amount of time will conveyancing often need? I am buying in Shepton Mallet.

A.

In general, the number of weeks taken to sell or purchase a house is not wholly predictable. This is according to a range of factors. These could include if there is a mortgage. Our conveyancing solicitors strive to ensure a sale, purchase or transfer of equity receives fast and efficient service.

Q.

Should we get a chancel search if I am buying in the parish of Queen Charlton?

The Shepton Mallet conveyancing solicitor is likely to recommend a chancel search, whichever parish where the property being bought is found. Chancel repair may be imposed on current owners of a property where church councils have previously chosen not to do so. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.

Q.

My local agent has referred a property lawyer whom they usually use. Will it be easier to use them?

A.

It is common for agents in Budleigh Salterton to recommend a law firm. These referrals should be compared to other online or local firms, as there is a risk that an agent may choose the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

As a result of the major flooding in Sept 2012 in South West England I am concerned that conveyancing searches aren't exacting enough?

A.

Environmental searches handled by your conveyancing solicitor in Shepton Mallet should also include a more thorough search (Landmark) if required.

People sometimes try to also get in touch with a local resident for additional more information.

Q.

Which Shepton Mallet lender panels are you on?

A.

We can work with the bulk of lenders. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Shepton Mallet, like Bath Mortgage Search, 106 Broadmoor La, Bath, BA1 4LB, Rosemount Mortgage Planning, 2 Wood Street, Bath, BA1 2JQ, and Complete Mortgage Solutions, 35 Church Road, Bishopsworth, Bristol, BS13 8JL. The solicitor managing the legal work for your move will be able to address any specific requests your lender may have.

Q.

Is Homeward Legal set up to 1 month completions on the conveyancing of property auction properties in Shepton Mallet?

A.

Homeward Legal often do the legal work for sellers at auction. We consistently recommend bidders to select a CQS lawyer prior to the date of the auction to allow time for a thorough investigation.

Post auction, your solicitor must be focused on speedily finalise the purchase legal work inside 28 days after exchange as conventionally required by the terms of sale.
