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.

When in the process should we instruct a conveyancing solicitor?

A.

With a firm offering a 'no move, no fee' conveyancing quote, the earlier in the process you can instruct a firm, the better, as the legal work can start straight away. Instructing a solicitor to handle your Strood conveyancing early can reduce the likelihood of the transaction falling through.

Q.

My husband and I intend to sell our co-owned building at a Strood property auction, can your company introduce us to fast Strood property lawyers ?

A.

Too many house moving solicitors practices are passive which usually adds a lot of pressure to the home moving process.

With Homeward Legal, firm will communicate through the whole of the property chain and who utilise advanced land registry integrated and information technology systems to exchange on your house move swiftly.

Q.

We are intending to buy a home in Sevenoaks. Will a chancel search be required?

A.

Whether you are buying a home in Strood or elsewhere in the county, the conveyancing lawyer could advise that

a chancel search is taken out. Although some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have determined to exact chancel repairs on the current owners, a solicitor cannot state with certainty that a parish which has not imposed liability will remain liability-free for new owners. For property in the parish of Sevenoaks, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

Would it be insensible to carry out the conveyancing on a DIY basis myself.

A.

There are no arguments why you cannot decide to carry out the legal work without a professional Strood property solicitor. That said, a conveyancing solicitor handles a significant number of actions including chasing lender for comments on issues raised or dealing with requisition on os1 some of which really need adequate training. Critically amateur lawyers will be working without sufficient insurance cover that all solicitors are required by the SRA to carry.

Q.

Environmental searches are compiled from archived data and when you consider recent weather changes such as the fact that last year was second wettest year since on record, are they the ideal way to advise me sufficient information about the Strood area flood risk?

A.

A Strood property lawyer will advise you to apply for specialist flood risk searches if the first conveyancing searches flag up a significant risk Strood flood risk area

Sometimes property buyers to speak to a local resident for that extra assurance.

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.

Is contaminated land in Strood a concern?

A.

A range of contaminants caused by human activities can quickly spoil land in Strood, and an environmental search will reveal the extent to which a specific plot of land can be impacted by local contaminants like existing and proposed overhead electricity cables. Contamination can be caused by local waste sites, including Commissioners Road, Strood, ME2 4HA.
