Q.

I am looking for a lawyer that offers cheap conveyancing. Will I get a quote or and estimate?

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many buyers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned, and many solicitors claim to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional charges may be added into small print. This small print is often not read by buyers in a hurry. Additional costs ought to be fair and reasonable and be applicable if the lawyer must complete unanticipated additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our online calculator will create an accurate quote for your buy.

Q.

The lender will be Lloyds TSB - is there anything I need to know?

In some cases, lenders have limited the number of solicitors who can act for them. Homeward Legal will act on behalf of all large mortgage lenders.

Q.

Property lawyers in St James get formal searches when acting for a purchaser, but which actual searches?

A.

If you are obtaining a mortgage the building society of bank will expect a solicitor to get at least these searches - Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search and Environmental, and possibly specific searches for example HS2 report.

Q.

Which local factors can contaminate land in St James. Will they be checked for thoroughly?

A.

Residential property in St James would be contaminated by a wide range of factors caused by man and by nature, and an environmental search will confirm if a property may be affected by local contaminants like pollution incidents or nearby waste management facilities.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for St James?

A.

St James is located in Westminster City Council, PO Box 240, Westminster City Hall, 64 Victoria Street, London, SW1E 6QP phone:

Q.

May our legal charges cover any supplementary hidden charges?

A.

Homeward Legal's solicitors never hide any additional charges. If you are comparing quotes, consider that some solicitor do not give accurate quotes, only estimates. The bill you receive on completion can be much greater.

Q.

Should we be concerned about 'fixtures and fittings'?

A.

New owners in St James are frequently confused by the vagueness surrounding fixtures and fittings. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.

Q.

Would ordering a property survey be necessary when purchasing a property?

A.

We firmly suggest that St James buyers order a home buyer survey. Many issues can affect a property. These include cracks around door frames and poor drainage.
