Q.

What will the overall charge be on the sale of a £529k home? We need to find an affordable conveyancing estimate.

A.

This catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many firms claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately additional fees may increase the final invoice. Any extra costs should be reasonable and clear. Get a quote using the Homeward Legal quote calculator for the property you are buying.

Q.

Can you explain why the purchase conveyancing process in Stansted takes such a long time?

A.

Conveyancing can be subject to numerous interruptions or delays, we, however, know the needless stress these can cause and seek to lessen their effect by chasing for prompt responses.

Q.

If we are purchasing in Stansted next to a 1300s priory, is it necessary that I get a search for chancel liability?

A.

The judgement in a landmark case 10 years ago confirmed that chancel repair liability could be enforced. Insurance may be available to protect a buyer should a Stansted Parochial Church Council enforce liability. Ecclesiastical properties in Stansted include St Mary the Virgin and St Paul.

Q.

Do your lawyers handle the conveyancing for auction properties in Stansted?

A.

Homeward Legal often do the legal work for buyers and sellers at auction. Homeward Legal consistently advise purchasers to appoint a solicitor in advance of the auction day to allow enough time for a detailed review.

Subsequently, following the auction a prepared conveyancing lawyer is fully prepared to get through all of the legal work within 4 weeks, a normal requirement of auction conditions.

Q.

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

A.

In the vast majority of cases, the sooner you instruct a firm, the better, as conveyancing involves several tasks which may be performed straight away. Early instruction of a conveyancing firm to act on your Stansted sale or purchase for a sale can mean that prior to marketing the property, documents can be prepared to make it potentially more attractive to motivated buyers, whereas if you are buying you will the details of your Stansted solicitor ready when you make an offer.

Q.

We are buying on a Stansted brownfield land. Could the soil be contaminated by industrial waste?

A.

Stansted industrial or agricultural can cause top-soil contamination. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including groundwater contaminants like solvents.

Q.

Our agent has put forward the property solicitor who they generally use. Is it risky to instruct them?

A.

It is common practice for agents to recommend one or more conveyancing firms, however, these referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, as an agent may select the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the best value for you.

Q.

We need to complete this purchase as soon as possible, can we guarantee a fast completion?

A.

Contacting a proactive, diligent conveyancer is essential to a faster move. There are various jobs you can also do to accelerate the process. These include:

  • organising your finances, including arranging a mortgage
  • requesting status updates from the conveyancer regularly
  • answering any queries raised by your conveyancer as soon as possible
