Q.

How do we get a cheap solicitor quote to buy a home?

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this point catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many law firms promote theoretically cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately extra charges are often hiding in the small print, left unregarded by busy homeowners Any charges ought to be fair and clearly defined. They only be applied if the solicitor is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Any disbursements ought to be defined on the quote. Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

How soon should you speak to a conveyancing solicitor in Taplow?

A.

Simply, earlier is preferable. Some groups suggest holding off instruction until a chain is completed, but doing so will put you at a disadvantage compared to better prepared buyers, or if your buyer decides to pull out due to delays.

Q.

Virgin Money is our mortgage lender, what do I need to consider?

A.

When organising a mortgage, the lender will require legal work to be carried out. Some lenders are now limiting the

firms who can act for them. This can mean greater conveyancing costs for buyers. We are able to act for many CML-approved lenders, ensuring that an additional preferred solicitor will not be required to act for your lender.

Q.

Following recent news about the Met Office projecting more intense rainfall in the future we are questioning whether property conveyancing searches might not be exacting enough?

A.

An experienced conveyancing solicitor in Taplow will recommend that you get additional environmental searches if the first conveyancing searches spots a Taplow area flood risk

Perhaps you could converse with a neighbour or local resident to gain additional local history.

Q.

Which conveyancing searches should my Taplow property solicitor get on a Taplow house?

A.

The common conveyancing protocol is to obtain Local Authority, Drainage Search (Con29DW) and Environmental, and possibly area-specific searches such as Subsidence report.

Q.

How is Taplow contaminated land investigated when buying?

A.

A broad range of contaminants can harm the resale value of residential property in Taplow, such as civil aviation activity in the area and limestone or gypsum quarrying. An environmental search can provide much more clarity. Land west of Sheephouse Farm, Sheephouse Road, Berkshire, SL6 is a cause of possible local contamination.

Q.

Would you advise that I get searches for chancel liability? I am purchasing a house in Taplow.

A.

Property owners near to a medieval church are expected to contribute towards the cost of repairs, as a result of chancel repair liability.
