Q.

How do we identify a genuinely cheap fee? I am trying to find fixed rate conveyancing.

A.

Many firms purport to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional costs will be included in the terms that buyers and sellers often do not check. Any charges which are listed in the terms needs to be fair and only apply to matters if your lawyer is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Is your solicitor team able to move quickly on the legal conveyancing of property auction properties in Theale?

A.

Our firm regularly carry out work for bidders at auction. Solicitors always suggest purchasers to appoint a CQS lawyer well in advance of the property auction to allow enough time for a title report.

Immediately following the property auction date you are the lawyer needs to be ready for get through the legal side of things in under 28 days after exchange of contracts, a normal requirement of terms and conditions of sale.

Q.

Is it important that I get a chancel liability search? I am purchasing in Theale.

A.

Where land in Theale was once owned by a lay-rector, new owners of that property may be obliged to contribute towards upkeep of local churches. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a property, but insurance is available should an obligation to fund repairs be enforced. Theale church lands include Christ Church and Holy Trinity.

Q.

I am taking out a mortgage in Theale with Barnsley Building Society - what will I need to be aware of?

A.

When taking out a mortgage, your lender will require legal work to be carried out on their behalf. Buyers should know that a small number of lenders are now reducing their 'solicitor panel'. For house purchasers, this can result in significantly increased conveyancing costs. Homeward Legal are able to act for most CML-approved lenders, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

I am going to sell our freehold apartment at a property auction next month, does your company any especially fast Theale conveyancing solicitors ?

A.

Often house buying legal firms are extremely passive which brings a lot of uncertainty to the house conveyancing process. We only ever work with property lawyers who will always attempt to communicate through the whole of the chain . In addition , Homeward Legals lawyers are picked because they have invested in expensive software systems meaning they can exchange on the sale fast.

Q.

Is gazumping common practice in Theale?

A.

The custom of rejecting a previously accepted offer on a house when a better one is made by another buyer is called gazumping. The risk of gazumping exists for almost any purchase. To reduce the likelihood of being gazumped, consider instructing a property solicitor as soon as possible.

Q.

We are buying in Theale, and have a quote from you. Will there be any hidden charges?

A.

We will not charge any hidden extra fees. You should be aware that some firms only provide estimates disguised as quotes, meaning that your final bill could be much higher.
