Q.

I need to find a cheap solicitor quote to buy a freehold house. How do I get a quote?

A.

Various property lawyers claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing', but extra costs can increase your final invoice. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.

Does my Surrey lawyer report back to me about the cost of the council tax for a Band C property prior to exchange of contracts?

A.

Your property lawyer will liaise with the Guildford local council to ascertain the correct council tax band and rates, which will be set out in the title report. The latest tax rates for Surrey are published at the Guildford council website. At the time of authoring, 16 November 2012, the different rates are:

  • Band A - £1,013.00
  • Band B - £1,182.00
  • Band C - £1,351.00
  • Band D - £1,519.00
  • Band E - £1,857.00
  • Band F - £2,195.00
  • Band G - £2,532.00
  • Band H - £3,039.00

Q.

Should I get a building survey for our property purchase?

A.

We suggest that most Surrey buyers book a home surveyor. There can be a range of defects that can negatively affect a property, which will not be addressed during a property valuation, such as failed double glazing or cracked roof tiles.

Q.

We need to complete this freehold residence purchase as soon as possible, how do we organise fast legal work in Surrey?

A.

Contacting a proactive and experienced conveyancing solicitor is the key to a fast transaction. Furthermore, there are numerous things you as the buyer can also do, including, organising your finances, including arranging a mortgage, promptly answering your conveyancing solicitor's questions (by email if possible) and calling or emailing your conveyancing solicitor, and chase them if you suspect any delays.

Q.

We are intending to be finally moving from our semi detached home near Surrey to a bigger home in Oxfordshire . What is the optimum stage to appoint a home removal company?

A.

The ideal approach is to put off a removal firm until such time as both sides have accepted by both parties a move date that happens once signing of contracts.

Q.

I have found a number of helpful manuals all about doing your own legal work. Do I want to use a solicitor in Surrey ?

A.

There are absolutely no arguments why a home mover cant carry out the legal process without property lawyer in Surrey. In reality however, a conveyancing solicitor in Surrey juggles a large number of exercises ranging from chasing deeds and applying for searches some of which need adequate training. Even more importantly have a go conveyancers will not be covered by relevant professional indemnity insurance which all legal practices will be covered by.

Q.

Lawyers in Surrey apply for a variety of property conveyancing searches when they are instructed to act for a purchase client - what actual searches?

A.

When you are getting a mortgage the mortgage lender expects a solicitor to get at least the following Local Authority Search, Drainage Search and Environment Search and, depending on certain criteria, less common searches such as Bankruptcy Search (K16).

Q.

When in the process is it appropriate to arrange a conveyancing solicitor?

A.

In the vast majority of cases, the sooner the better. Prompt instruction of a conveyancing firm to act for you on your Surrey transaction can reduce any chance of your sale or purchase aborting.
