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.

For a fast conveyancing process to buy a £360,000 house, what do we need to do?

A.

Primarily, a faster move is crucial to instruct a proactive and experienced conveyancer. When selecting a conveyancer, : Will they work on a 'no sale, no fee' basis? Do they offer 'instant' online quotes? Are phone, fax and email their preferred methods of contact

Q.

I am buying a period investment property in a conservation area in Shepton Mallet. Where can I uncover information on the state of upkeep?

A.

Local conservation areas are nominated by the local authority (Mendip) who manage things like whether trees can be cut down to the halting of ugly shop fronts. Following a campaign,

English Heritage have conducted a survey and created a list on the state of repair of conservation areas along with the vulnerability to deterioration or improvement.

Q.

Is contaminated land a problem for the majority of houses in Shepton Mallet?

A.

A range of contaminants caused by naturally-occurring factors can affect property. Issues such as pollution incidents will be reported on in environmental search results.

Q.

How do we hold off paying for stamp duty in Shepton Mallet?

A.

Homeward Legal do not recommend home movers risk any stamp duty avoidance, as such schemes are highly expensive and , if the scheme fails, you may be charged a penalty of up to 100% of the stamp duty amount owed.

Q.

What causes the conveyancing process to have so many delays? The last solicitor we used felt very slow.

A.

Conveyancing will sometimes potentially be delayed. We see how frustrating such delays may be and work hard to diminish the burden of these delays by, for example, ordering searches as early as possible.

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.

Is a home buyers survey advisable when we are buying a home?

A.

We recommend that you arrange an inspection if purchasing in Shepton Mallet. Buyers should be aware that there are a wide range of problems which have a negative impact on a property, for example ground movement and corrosion of pipework, and these will not be addressed by your conveyancing solicitor.
