Q.

I am looking for a cheap solicitor quote to purchase a home. as we are on a budget.

A.

Confusion over this issue catches out many home owners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many law firms advertise theoretically cheap conveyancing, but additional charges will be included in the terms of engagement which unwary home owners fail to check. Applicable disbursements should be included on the quote. Get a quote using the Homeward Legal quote calculator for the property you are buying.

Q.

Does the Stroud conveyancer inform me about the cost of the council tax on a Band D townhouse prior to completion?

A.

A solicitor will speak to the governing Stroud local authority to reveal the up to date council tax charges which will subsequently be set out in the report on title.

The latest council tax rates for Stroud are set out online at the Stroud local authority site. At the time of writing on 29 October 2012 rates are as follows:

  • Band A - £1,025.00
  • Band B - £1,196.00

Q.

Would getting a building survey be necessary when buying a property, irrespective of its condition, in Stroud?

A.

It is recommended that buyers instruct a home surveyor to undertake a survey. Numerous defects have a negative impact on a property, which include subsidence or poor ventilation, and these will not be addressed by your conveyancing solicitor.

Q.

Do fixtures and fittings include things like door handles?

A.

Purchasers are frequently confused by the vagueness surrounding which fixtures and fittings ought to be included. In order to avoid later issues, a fixtures and fittings form should be completed, saving heartache once the sale is completed.

Q.

Unforeseeable financial circumstances dictate that we ideally need to push matters along and complete on the conveyancing on our mortgaged maisonette within 4 weeks, are you a fast solicitor in Stroud ?

A.

Frequently lawyers may be slow which usually adds huge stress to the property conveyancing process. Homeward Legal only work with conveyancing solicitors who are selected because they are customer focused and endeavour to proactively communicate from the beginning to the end of the home buyer and seller chain . Also , our carefully chosen panel of solicitors are specifically chosen as they implement modern CMS and technology systems to exchange on the legal work with minimal stress.

Q.

We are buying on a Stroud brownfield land. Is the soil potentially contaminated?

A.

Stroud industry, agriculture and the natural environment can cause soil contamination. Environment search results will factor contaminants, including metals and others such as water contaminants such as bleach and organohalides.

Q.

Our local agent has referred a solicitor which they often use. Will it be cheaper to instruct this solicitor?

A.

Estate agent referrals are a common way to find a solicitor, however, such referrals should be compared against alternatives, as there is a risk that an agent may choose the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

What makes conveyancing in Stroud to require months?

A.

The conveyancing process in Stroud can take more time than initially expected, we, however, seek to reduce the effect of these delays whenever it is possible by driving the transaction forward. There are numerous reasons for delay, such as waiting for a mortgage offer.
