Q.

What sort of local conveyancing searches in connection with the risk and history of a flood in the Warwickshire area will my property lawyer in Southam apply for?

A.

A key part of the legal process of purchasing a property involves your lawyer making an application for environmental searches that offer certain details about the potential Southam flooding.

Q.

We are buying on a Southam ex-industrial site. Is lead soil contamination likely?

A.

Effort is made in and around Southam to clean up soil contamination. Also considering issues such as ammonia, contaminants affecting Southam property will be factored into an environmental search.

Q.

We are purchasing with Standard Life Mortgages - what will I need to know?

A.

Recently, a number of lenders have limited the firms who can act for them, which may result in greater legal costs for buyers. Homeward Legal, fortunately, will act on behalf of most mortgage lenders so that the buyer will not have to pay legal costs to your lender's solicitor.

Q.

Do Homeward Legal handle residential property auction conveyancing in Southam?

A.

Yes - Our solicitors and licensed conveyancers in Southam commonly take instructions from auction buyers and sellers. Lawyers invariably suggest buyers at auction to formally instruct a lawyer well before the auction day to allow time for a full investigation.

Immediately following the day of the auction you are the property conveyancing lawyer will be prepared for finish the conveyancing process within 28 days, a requirement of auction conditions.

Q.

Do I need to use a lawyer put forward by the estate agent?

A.

The agent will often suggest a conveyancing firm. However, if they are paid a referral fee, the agent may prefer to suggest whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the best solicitor for your needs.

Q.

We are intending to buy a residence in Claybrooke with Wibtoft. Will we need a chancel search?

A.

A conveyancing lawyer is likely to recommend that a chancel search be ordered, whichever parish in which the home being purchased is located. In Southam's much older areas, chancel repair may be apportioned on the owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.
