Q.

What do you charge for the legal fees on a £213,000 property? We need to find affordable conveyancing in Teddington.

A.

Various conveyancers claim to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing. However additional charges can inflate your solicitor's invoice. Any costs listed in terms of engagement should be fair and clearly defined. Any disbursements should be included on your conveyancing quote. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.

What makes conveyancing for a purchase to go on for so long?

A.

Conveyancing in Teddington can be delayed for a variety of reasons. The causes are on occasion unhappily beyond the solicitor's power. Homeward Legal strive to minimise the cost of these delays whenever feasible by driving the transaction forward. There are numerous reasons for delay, such as waiting for responses from third parties.

Q.

At what point do I need to instruct a solicitor in Teddington?

A.

With a firm offering a 'no move, no fee' conveyancing quote, the faster you instruct the better, as conveyancing involves a number of tasks that can be carried out immediately. Prompt instruction of a firm for a sale enables information, especially from slow third-parties, can be requested even prior to accepting an offer, whereas if you are buying you can shave days off the process by having the details of your instructed solicitor ready when you make an offer.

Q.

How can we determine more info about the conservation areas in Teddington?

A.

English Heritage have produced details in relation to the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas in addition to the risk of standards slipping. Conservation area matters for instance trees, satellite dishes or plastic box signs are handled by the local authority (Richmond upon Thames).

Q.

Our lender will be Northern Rock, is there anything I need to check?

A.

Traditionally, almost all conveyancing solicitors could act for the large mortgage lenders. Over the last two years, some lenders are now reducing the size of their 'solicitor panel', resulting in increased conveyancing costs for home buyers in cases where the conveyancing solicitor cannot act for their lender, and another must also be instructed. Homeward Legal, however, will act for the majority of UK mortgage lenders so that the buyer will not have to pay your lender's legal costs.

Q.

Which local authority looks after Teddington?

A.

Teddington is located in London Borough of Richmond upon Thames Council, Civic Centre, 44 York Street, Twickenham, Middlesex, TW1 3BZ, Call: 08456 122 665

Q.

Is a managing agent fee a disbursement or a fee?

A.

An ideal quote will list all disbursements and fees. This cost is a fee not a disbursement, and should be included in a conveyancing quote.

Q.

I have read about the fact that last year was second wettest year since 1920 we are anxious that conveyancing searches won't be sufficient?

A.

A diligent conveyancing solicitor in Teddington should apply for flood risk searches if the standard search identifies a significant risk.

For added peace of mind you could always speak to a neighbour of the property.
