Q.

How do we find a cheap solicitor to own a home?

A.

The confusion over this matter catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many law firms offer 'the cheapest conveyancing', but extra costs are often hiding in the solicitor's terms. Busy, stressed homeowners ignore these terms at their peril. Extra costs ought to be reasonable. Get a quote using the Homeward Legal quote calculator for the property you are buying.

Q.

Our local agent has suggested the firm of solicitors. Is it advisable to use this firm?

A.

It is common for agents in Glynneath to suggest a law firm to handle your conveyancing, however, these referrals should be compared against alternatives, such as local solicitors, or firms found online, as it may be the case that the agent recommends the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

What type of local searches in respect to the risk of floods in the Essex region will the conveyancing solicitor in Thurrock be able to do?

A.

A key component in the conveyancing process involves the solicitor applying for conveyancing searches that offer specific information on the subject of Thurrock flood risk.

Q.

How soon is it wise to instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Thurrock?

A.

In the majority of situations, the faster you instruct the better. Promptly instructing a firm for your Thurrock transaction could mitigate the chance of the transaction falling through.

Q.

I am buying in Thurrock. How can we verify that the building is in a conservation area?

A.

Conservation areas pinpoint regions of architectural or historic interest. Corringham, East Tilbury and Fobbing are among the conservation areas in Thurrock. Living in a conservation area can mean better maintained homes and gardens, but the restrictions may impose liability on a buyer for unauthorised alterations made by previous owners. A solicitor will discuss what specific restrictions are in place.

Q.

I am buying a Thurrock house with Cheshire Building Society, what do I need to check?

A.

House buyers need to be aware that some lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel, potentially creating increased legal costs for buyers. We will act on behalf of all large CML-approved lenders, ensuring that an additional lawyer will not be required to act for your lender.

Q.

Would getting a property survey be necessary when we are purchasing a property?

A.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors strongly advise that buyers book a house surveyor to perform a survey when buying in Thurrock. There are a wide range of issues which can affect a property, that a solicitor will be unable to address, such as blocked drains or cavity wall tie failure.
