Q.

How do we get the best conveyancing rates in Tiptree for a 519,000 house?

A.

Many online and high street conveyancers promote theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra costs are often hiding in small print which homeowners may have not read carefully The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the solicitors' fees, based on the property you are buying.

Q.

We are purchasing with Nationwide, what will I need to know?

A.

Some lenders have decreased the number of firms on their approved panel. This can mean increased conveyancing costs for home buyers. Homeward Legal will act for most mortgage lenders.

Q.

How many weeks will the legal work to sell a home often take, in your opinion? We need to move quickly.

A.

On average, the length of time taken to sell or purchase a house is not wholly predictable, influenced by a range of concerns. Nationally, the average is up to twelve weeks, we however take a proactive approach, driving the sale or purchase to complete sooner.

Q.

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

A.

The best advice is for home movers to put off booking a removal firm until such time as all parties have agreed the completion date that occurs after final contracts are signed. Try Taxitruck Ltd, Unit F3 Beckingham Business Pk/Beckingham Street, Tolleshunt Major, Maldon, CM9 8LZ on 01621 868882 or Taxitruck Ltd, Unit F3 Beckingham Street Beckingham Business Pk, Tolleshunt Major, Maldon, CM9 8LZ Phone: 01621 868882.

Q.

If I buy a book about the conveyancing process as a buyer of a house. Would it be shrewd to carry out the DIY conveyancing without any help?

A.

There is absolutely no argument why a home buyer should not conduct legal process without a dedicated Tiptree conveyancing solicitor.

In reality however, a conveyancer in Tiptree handles a large array of tasks including interpreting protocol forms or the Land Registry formalities many of which are better done by someone with adequate training. Critically do it yourself conveyancers will be working without relevant insurance cover which practicing lawyers are made responsible to be covered by.

Q.

Will it be necessary to get a chancel search if I am intending to purchase in the parish of Theydon Bois, near Tiptree?

A.

Whether you are buying a residence in Tiptree or elsewhere in the county, the property lawyer should confirm that a chancel search is taken out. Chancel repair has the potential to be charged on the owners of a residence where Parochial Church Councils may have not done so in the past. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

In respect to the extensive flooding in the UK in April 2012 we are concerned that environmental searches won't be thorough enough?

A.

A competent Tiptree conveyancing solicitor will suggest that you also get property environmental searches from Landmark if the standard conveyancing searches spots a Tiptree flooding risk.

Sometimes property buyers to also contact a close neighbour for some extra peace of mind.

Q.

Do we need to make use of the firm of solicitors referred by my agent?

A.

Both agents and mortgage brokers will usually suggest a conveyancing solicitor. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, the agent may prefer to suggest the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.
