Q.

I am looking for discount conveyancing. How do I get a quote?

A.

This catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many firms purport to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately extra fees can increase the solicitor's invoice. Extra costs should be fair and clearly defined and only apply in cases where your conveyancer is required to complete unexpected extra work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

Thurston lawyers order official property conveyancing searches when instructed by a home purchase client - which particular searches?

A.

When applying for a mortgage a mortgage lender mandates at least the following Local Authority (council), Drainage Search and Environmental, and possibly specific local Thurston searches such as Cheshire Brine Search.

Q.

Our local agent has suggested the firm of solicitors. Must we use them?

A.

Many agents in Sonning Common will have a referral arrangement with solicitors whereby they refer work, however, these referrals should be considered carefully, as the agent may prefer to suggest the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the law firm with the best reputation.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Thurston?

Q.

What can a Thurston property lawyer advise if the building we are buying is in a conservation area in St Edmundsbury that may have unfitting roof aerials installed?

A.

The time taken to transfer a residence varies. This is affected by a handful of issues which can include matters where a property has a mortgage. With Homeward Legal's Thurston property experts, every sale is undertaken with the utmost care and speed.

Q.

The internet has collections of very helpful guidebooks all about how to do DIY conveyancing e.g. A Practical Approach to Conveyancing by Robert Abbey and Mark Richards . Do I have to use conveyancing solicitor in Thurston ?

A.

It is possible to complete the legal process unaided.

However, a conveyancing solicitor handles a large array of assignments e.g. liaising with the insolvency office for k15 entries and checking that the contract package is in order some of which need experience. In addition firms and their solicitors need to carry acceptable cover to shield you in the event of any failures made by the lawyer.

Q.

At what point should a home mover book a home removal firm?

A.

Homeward Legals advice is to put off instructing a removal firm until such time as you have agreed a move date that happens once exchange of contracts.
