What are the benefits of an online solicitor against a high street firm?
Many commentators and bloggers have suggested that you get so much more from online conveyancers because they have access to state-of-the-art applications to manage their cases and use the latest communication technology.
However, there is nothing stopping high street conveyancing firms from adopting such technology. And they will have a wealth of experience and knowledge of the local area that they can bring to bear on your transaction.
It all comes down to what they offer and how they go about their business. You should get a selection of quotes and read through the terms and conditions in detail to understand the comparisons between what they offer and how much they are going to charge you for the service.
If you choose Homeward Legal, you not only get an experienced proactive solicitor but also access to the latest technology and local knowledge. Call us now on 0800 038 6699 to find out more.
If I want to build an extension or do other works once I move in, can I get a builder to visit to give me a quote?
There is nothing stopping you trying to organise this, so long as you set a date and time that’s acceptable to the vendor (or via their estate agent if they are unable to be there) and try to establish how long the process will take, so that this can be booked in.
This becomes particularly critical following a surveyor’s inspection where remedial works are identified and recommended. You can use the quote from the builder as a renegotiation tool on the asking price, if the work required is going to be particularly costly. If you decide to go down this route, it must be done before exchange of contracts (where you’re committing to the sale price) and you should inform your solicitor if you’ve had private discussions and agreements with the vendor over price for inclusion in the terms of the contract.
Do we need a chancel search? I am purchasing a flat conversion in South Brent.

The solicitor carrying out the legal work for your move will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate. South Brent churches where chancel liability may apply include St Petroc.
Does 'fixtures and fittings' include things like radiators?
Generally speaking, fixtures are fixed to floors, walls and ceilings and fixtures can be more easily removed. The parties' may have widely differing assumptions about what will be included; this makes the completion of a fixtures and fittings form essential.
