Q.

How do we get the best conveyancing rates for a £661k house?

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many sellers and buyers paying out more than they anticipated in the end, and many solicitors offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often additional costs can increase the solicitor's invoice. Any additional charges listed in your solicitor's terms should be reasonable.

Q.

Is homewardlegal.co.uk set up to move quickly on the conveyancing of auction properties in Strood?

A.

The legal team work closely with auctioneers and often act for bidders at auction. Homeward Legal always advocate purchasers to formally appoint an affordable conveyancing firm in advance of the actual auction to allow for a full investigation of the sellers pack.

Subsequently, immediately after the auction, a property conveyancing lawyer needs to be prepared for complete the purchase inside the 28 day time frame as conventionally required by the conditions of sale.

Q.

In the next month we are shortly going to move from our semi detached home in Strood into a home in Westerham at what point to select a removal company?

A.

Q.

Why can conveyancing for a sale take weeks to complete?

A.

The legal work needed to sell or purchase a property may potentially be delayed for many reasons. The delays may be out of the solicitors' control, Homeward Legal, however, see how frustrating such delays may be and seek to reduce their impact by using fast search providers. Common delays may include the time taken to return management information.

Q.

Will I need a chancel search? We are purchasing a Strood maisonette next to a rectory manor.

A.

Property owners in an area near older church buildings are expected to fund repairs, as a result of chancel repair liability. Indemnity policies can be arranged if chancel liability is likely to be enforced. Church lands in the area include St Francis of Assisi and St Nicholas.

Q.

The property being purchased is on a ex-industrial use land. Can the top-soil still be contaminated?

A.

Strood's local area has a history of contamination from industry and natural causes, like much of the UK. Various bodies hold data on land contaminants affecting Strood, including local authorities.
