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 estate agent has offered the solicitors firm whom they usually use. Will it be easier to use them?

A.

The Yiewsley agent may suggest a solicitor. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, it may be the case that the agent recommends whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the best value for you.

Q.

How much time should be allowed for the conveyancing process take, according to your estimates?

The length of time needed to transact a residence may vary, dependent on potentially many legal considerations. Our conveyancers work hard to ensure each client receives fast and efficient service.

Q.

When in the process should I speak to a conveyancing solicitor?

A.

Whether you are buying or selling in St James, the earlier in the process you can instruct a firm, the better, as there are a number of tasks which may begin straight away. Some groups advocate postponing instruction until the offer is accepted, but you will then be at a serious disadvantage in the event of a contract race, or buyer eager to move quickly.

Q.

Is it advisable to get a chancel search when we are buying in St James next to rectory land?

A.

Chancel repair liability can require owners in St James to subsidise maintenance of a medieval church. As a consequence of a recent Act, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. The solicitor carrying out the legal work for your move will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate.

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.

We have to get extra fast St James conveyancing solicitors - is that your firm?

A.

All too often legal firms can be far too unhurried which causes even more uncertainty to the property selling process.

Homeward Legals conveyancers method is different as we use state of the art technology and local authority and land registry integrated systems .

Crucially , we allocate you a company incentivised to communicate by phone and email from the beginning to the end of the property chain (line of buyers and sellers) .

Q.

Should we get a chancel search if we are intending to buy in the parish of Pimlico St Peter, near St James?

A.

A conveyancing solicitor may suggest a chancel search. In St James's much older areas, chancel repair may be imposed on new owners of a home where church councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners.
