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.

Which Theale mortgage lenders do you work with?

A.

We can work with the majority of lenders serving Theale home purchasers. Local mortgage lenders and brokers include Mortgage Lady, 115 The Street, Crowmarsh Gifford, Wallingford, OX10

8EF, Active Investments, 26 Felton Way, Tilehurst, Reading, RG31 5DX, and Assist, 8 Hafod, Emmer Green, Reading, RG4 8LZ. Your solicitor should be able to address any specific requests your lender may have.

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.

I am purchasing a 1960's property, is it recommended that 'conveyancing searches' are performed?

A.

These searches are standard queries carried out on behalf of the party intending to buy the property, which may include a coal mining search, and refer to legal-related matters.

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.

How much time will conveyancing legal work often take, on average? We have a buyer ready.

A.

On average, the length of time required to transfer property may vary, affected by a handful of aspects which can include if third parties fail to promptly answer queries. With our specialist solicitors, your sale, purchase or remortgage receives fast and efficient service.

Q.

If I am buying near Theale, in the parish of Bradfield, do we need a chancel search?

A.

A Theale conveyancing solicitor is likely to recommend a chancel search, whichever parish where the property being bought is found. In older areas of Theale, chancel repair may be imposed on the owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils may have not done so in the past.
