Q.

How do I find a cheap solicitor quote to own a house?

A.

Many solicitors claim to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional costs are often hiding in the solicitor's terms of engagement, left unread by preoccupied property buyers and sellers Any disbursements must also be stated on the quote Fees needs to be fair and clearly defined and only apply in cases where the lawyer is required to complete extra work for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

What can a Sherwood conveyancing lawyer recommend if the property we are buying is located in a conservation area in Nottingham and turns out to have unseemly roof antenna fitted?

A.

Nottingham local authority searches conducted by your Sherwood property lawyer during the conveyancing process should identify if the property is in a designated conservation area proof of formal approval for modifications will be required.

Q.

With a freehold property ready to buy, and no chain, how can we ensure a fast conveyancing process?

A.

The key to a fast completion is to employing a proactive and experienced conveyancing solicitor. When finding a conveyancing solicitor, you should ask yourself the following: Was there a delay delivering a quote? Which communication methods do they use? Days can be wasted waiting for letters in the post which could be emailed or faxed. Are they 'no move, no fee'? This can incentivise a faster transaction.

Q.

We are going to buy with Barclays Bank - what do we need to consider?

A.

Over the last two years, some lenders have limited the number of solicitors who can act for them. Homeward Legal are able to act for many CML-approved lenders to keep legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

Will you need a chancel search? We are buying a Sherwood apartment on the same street as a rectory.

A.

Chancel liability repair costs can run into £100,000s, which owners of affected property will be compelled to pay on demand to the Sherwood Church council. A chancel search is used to confirm whether such a liability exists. The solicitor performing your conveyancing will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate. Church properties in Sherwood where chancel liability may apply include St Martin.

Q.

What sort of local authority searches in connection with the uncertain risk of a flood in the Nottinghamshire area will my Sherwood property solicitor actually carry out?

A.

An essential part of the legal procedure of purchasing a property involves your solicitor applying for environmental searches that offer information with respect to Sherwood historical flood risk.

Q.

Of the large Sherwood lenders, which firms are on your panel?

A.

The Homeward Legal group have solicitors who have experience working with all the major lenders assisting Sherwood homebuyers. Local mortgage lenders and brokers include Money Matters, 11 Radcliffe Rd, West Bridgford, Nottingham, NG2 5FF, T B Mortgage Services, Po Box 6797, Bulwell, Nottingham, NG6 8XR, and Clear Choice Mortgages Ltd, St. Peters Chambers/Bank Pl, Nottingham, NG1 2JJ.

Q.

Should we use the conveyancing solicitor suggested by our local agent?

A.

Many agents will have referral deals with solicitors where they refer clients to them. Such referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, as an agent may decide to recommend the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.
