Q.

What do you charge for the legal fees on a £507,000 property? We need to find fixed rate Silverton conveyancing.

A.

Many online and high street conveyancers purport to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes. Often additional charges are often hiding in the terms. Any disbursements to be paid ought to be defined on your quote Any additional charges included in the terms needs to be fair and reasonable and only apply to matters if the conveyancer must complete unanticipated additional work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

When in the process should we instruct a conveyancing solicitor to act on our sale?

A.

In the majority of situations, the sooner you instruct a firm, the better, as conveyancing involves a number of tasks that can be performed very early in the process. Early instruction of a conveyancing solicitor to act on your Silverton sale or purchase for a purchase enables you can shave days off the process by having the details of your instructed solicitor ready when you make an offer, or, if you are selling a property, information, especially from slow third-parties, can be requested even prior to accepting an offer.

Q.

Should I use the solicitor referred by the estate agent?

A.

Both agents and mortgage brokers will usually suggest a conveyancer, however, such referrals must be carefully

considered, as there is a risk that the agent may suggest the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.

May the charges for my conveyancing incorporate any additional fees?

A.

No. Homeward Legal never hide any hidden extra fees. Be aware that some solicitors' firms will give a low estimate, not an accurate quote. The bill you receive on completion can be much greater.

Q.

Environmental searches are conveyancing protocol but with recent events e g the major flooding in Sept 2012 in South West England are they sufficient to confirm sufficient information about the evolving risk of flooding in Silverton?

A.

A competent conveyancing solicitor in Silverton should also get flood searches if the standard search establishes a Silverton area flood risk

It could be worth trying to converse with a neighbour of the property for additional added confidence.

Q.

What can a Silverton property solicitor do when the building we are buying is within a registered conservation area and has an un-consented roof aerials added?

A.

Local authority enquiries carried out by the solicitor during the legal process should confirm if the property is inside a designated conservation area and evidence of formal approval for additions to the property will be supplied.Should no appropriate consents be produced, your conveyancing solicitor will inform you of the best alternative like requesting an indemnity insurance or requesting retrospective approval from the appropriate local authority.
