Q.

How do we get the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Tilehurst?

A.

Both high-street and online law firms promote so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing', however extra charges are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Busy, stressed property buyers and sellers ignore these terms at their peril. Extra fees ought to be fair. A quote should also clearly state any disbursements.The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the solicitors' fees, based on the property you are buying.

Q.

The lender will be GE Money Home Lending, what do we need to be aware of?

A.

Buyers should be aware that some lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel, resulting in increased conveyancing costs for house purchasers in cases where the solicitor cannot act for their lender, and another must also be instructed. Homeward Legal can act for most mortgage lenders.

Q.

Will the fixtures and fittings list things like external light fixtures?

A.

Property buyers are often frustrated by confusion regarding what fixtures and fittings are included. To avoid misunderstandings, a fixtures and fittings form should be agreed, clarifying to both parties what items will stay, and which will be removed.

Q.

When in the process is it appropriate to instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Tilehurst?

A.

Generally, instructing as soon as possible is wise. Prompt instruction of a firm could mitigate the chance of the sale or purchase aborting.

Q.

What can a Tilehurst property lawyer recommend if the house I want to buy is in a Reading planning authority conservation area which appears to have unapproved windows fitted?

A.

Local authority enquiries carried out by your Tilehurst property lawyer as part of the conveyancing should establish whether the property is in a conservation area and evidence of the appropriate permissions for modifications will be asked for.

Q.

How much time does conveyancing to sell a property usually require? We are selling in Tilehurst.

A.

The number of weeks needed to transact residential property does vary, based on a number of issues affecting the property. These may include if third parties fail to promptly answer queries. Our solicitors strive to ensure your transaction is undertaken as quickly as possible.

Q.

Are we advised to get a chancel search if we plan to buy in the parish of Hurst, near Tilehurst?

A.

Your conveyancing solicitor may suggest a chancel search, irrespective of the parish where the house being bought is located. In Tilehurst's much older areas, chancel repair has the potential to be charged on the owners of a house where parish councils may have not done so in the past, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.

Q.

Do I need to get a property survey for this home purchase?

A.

It is suggested that Tilehurst property purchasers book a house surveyor to carry out a survey if you are intending to buy in Tilehurst. There are many problems that have a negative impact on a property, such as flat roof leaks.
