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.

Doing ones own conveyancing without the support of a conveyancer in Stroud is becoming possible when selling a flat. Would it actually be viable ?

A.

Should you desire t do so, you can certainly undertake the greater part of the your own conveyancing without engaging a specialist conveyancer in Stroud .

Naturally solicitors firms would argue that this choice is a risky method as do it yourself conveyancers might come a cropper relevant cover that all legal practices are required by their regulator to take out.

Q.

Which local authority looks after Stroud?

A.

Stroud is located in Stroud District Council, Ebley Mill, Westward Road, Stroud, Gloucestershire, GL5 4UB, Call: 01453 766 321

Q.

Will you need to get a chancel search? We are buying in Stroud.

A.

Some owners in Stroud can be required to cover the cost of maintenance of church property in the locality. As a result of the Land Registration Act 2002, interest over any affected

land must be registered by October 2013. A solicitor will be able to advise further. Stroud Church of England properties where chancel liability may apply include Holy Trinity,, St Alban Mission Church, St Laurence and St Matthew's.

Q.

In regards to the serious flooding in Sept 2012 in South West England I am thinking that property environmental searches won't be exacting enough?

A.

Conveyancing and environmental searches carried out by your Stroud lawyer will include the more informative flood search if the risk warrants it.

You can always get in touch with a next door neighbour for further peace of mind.

Q.

What would our conveyancing searches be?

A.

With a Homeward Legal solicitor, a client is required to pay at most £249 for a standard bundle of searches. Conveyancing searches are disbursements paid to a third party, and are charged 'at cost'.

Q.

Natwest will be our mortgage lender - is there anything we need to check?

A.

House buyers should be aware that, recently, a number of lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel, resulting in higher legal costs for property buyers if the lender insists upon their own conveyancer . Homeward Legal are able to act for most lenders, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

Is your solicitor team experienced enough to move quickly on the legal conveyancing of residential property auction properties in Stroud?

A.

In fact we deal with auctions throughout the UK and regularly act for buyers at auction. Our highly qualified conveyancers have acted for many buyers at local property auctions like Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London, Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.

Sensible bidders tend to appoint a good solicitors practice as soon as they can to allow time for a title report of the legal papers before the day of the auction. After the auction day, your property lawyer must be able to concentrate on finalise the legal process in under 28 days, a normal requirement of terms of sale.
