Q.

How do I find a discount conveyancing quote in Thornton?

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many buyers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned, and many firms offer so-called cheap conveyancing, but additional charges are often hiding in the small print. The disbursements to be paid should also be included on the conveyancing quote. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Will a title report compiled by the Thornton property solicitor advise me on the amount of the council tax for a property prior to exchange?

A.

A lawyer will liaise with the local council to ascertain the currently applicable council tax charges which will be set out in the conveyancer's title report. Correct rates for residents of Thornton are detailed on the council website.

Q.

Which particular searches does a lawyer in Thornton conduct when buying a Thornton flat?

A.

The conventional legal protocol is to get Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search (Con29DW or personal), Environment Search and Gypsum Mining Search and occasionally specific local searches e.g. a Index Map Search (SIM).

Q.

We need a very quick sale, does your firm any auction specialist fast Thornton conveyancers ?

A.

Frequently law firms are extremely slow adding further stress to the home legal process. With us, lawyers will always attempt to communicate through every part of the buyer and seller chain and that use advanced software systems to push through the sale in minimum time.

Q.

Is a Local Authority search a fee or a disbursement?

A.

Unscrupulous firms attempt to pass off fees which should be included as disbursements. It is not always obvious if a cost is a disbursement or not, and if it ought to be included. This charge is a disbursement not a fee, meaning the conveyancing solicitor passes on the charge at cost.

Q.

What will impact land in Thornton. Are these checked for thoroughly?

A.

Land in Thornton may have been contaminated by several natural causes, like nearby electrical substations and proximity to scrap yards. An environmental search will give more information.

Q.

Will my conveyancer in Thornton report back on the risk of possible flooding at Thornton for a seventies home we are going to purchase?

A.

Your solicitor will apply for standard protocol conveyancing and environmental searches that should include Thornton historical flood risk data.

Q.

Santander is our lender, is there anything I need to consider?

A.

Some lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel', resulting in greater conveyancing costs for property buyers if the lender insists upon their own solicitor . Homeward Legal are able to act for many lenders to keep legal costs to a minimum.
