Q.

On the purchase of a £483,000 property, what will be the fees? We need to find a discount conveyancing quote.

A.

This catches out many home owners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many law firms claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however extra costs can pad your final invoice. Your South Woodham Ferrers conveyancing quote ought to define any disbursements to be paid.

Q.

The agent has named a firm of solicitors. Is it advisable to instruct them?

A.

Agent recommendations are a not uncommon route to find a solicitor. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, an agent may decide to recommend the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

When you are purchasing in South Woodham Ferrers, will you need to get a chancel liability search?

A.

Repair costs resulting from chancel liability can total hundreds of thousands of pounds. A chancel search will confirm whether liability for South Woodham Ferrers properties is likely to exist. South Woodham Ferrers churches include Holy Trinity.

Q.

We are buying on a new development brownfield site. Is the top-soil likely to remain contaminated by waste minerals like nickel (Ni)?

A.

Restrictions exist to manage soil contamination, but some existing contaminants can reside for decades after exposure. Data on many contaminants, such as chlorine, will be included in an environmental search.

Q.

Does the property solicitor in South Woodham Ferrers inform me about the amount to be paid of council tax on a Band H townhouse before exchange of contracts?

A.

Your property lawyer will liaise with the governing Rochford local authority to ascertain the currently applicable council tax charges which will then be written in the title report. Correct rates for South Woodham Ferrers are detailed at the Rochford local authority site. On 26 November 2012 rates for all bands are:

  • Band A - £1,019.00
  • Band B - £1,189.00
  • Band C - £1,358.00
  • Band D - £1,528.00
  • Band E - £1,868.00
  • Band F - £2,207.00
  • Band G - £2,547.00
  • Band H - £3,056.00

Q.

What makes conveyancing work in South Woodham Ferrers to require months? Isn't it just filing paperwork?

A.

The legal work required to buy or sell a property could be drawn out. We work hard to diminish the impact of these delays by, for example, ordering searches as early as possible. Delays include the time taken to return management information.

Q.

We have had a quote from you. Are there any hidden costs?

A.

No. Homeward Legal's solicitors never hide any hidden charges regardless of circumstances. Know that some conveyancers give 'quotes' which are in fact estimates. You may face a much greater total fee when you have completed.

Q.

I am going to buy property, do we need conveyancing searches?

A.

Conveyancing searches are enquiries ordered by the buyer's property lawyer through several authorities, for example a local authority search. They will not be a substitute for a building survey and do not include information relating to a property's structure.
