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.

Should we get a survey?

A.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors recommend that all purchasers in Tiptree arrange a home surveyor to undertake a survey. Many defects can negatively affect a property. These include ground movement, and these will not be addressed by your conveyancing solicitor.

Q.

What causes the conveyancing process appear to be so drawn out?

A.

The conveyancing process can be subject to numerous interruptions or delays. Homeward Legal know how much extra stress these can cause and do our best to diminish their effect by pushing all parties involved.

Q.

An unpredictable event mean we have a requirement to make haste and exchange on the conveyancing on our freehold flat in a very limited time, do Homeward Legal use fast property lawyers in Tiptree ?

Commonly house moving conveyancing lawyers are far too ponderous bringing further concern to the property conveyancing process.

Homeward Legals property lawyers approach is different - we use modern case and work flow systems . We also provide you with sellers a CQS solicitor trained to communicate with the entire property chain e.g. mortgage lenders, to reach a fast exchange.

Q.

Where can I go about establish whether the Tiptree conservation area we are buying in is neglected?

A.

Conservation areas are designated by Colchester who are responsible for everything from including things like rundown streets, dormer windows and private spaces. English Heritage have produced records of the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas in addition to the vulnerability to getting worse.

Q.

For a fast completion to buy a £498,000 residence, what should we do?

A.

Contacting a proactive and experienced lawyer is the key to a fast conveyancing transaction. When finding a lawyer, consider these points: Was there a delay delivering a quote? Which communication methods do they use? Days can be wasted waiting for letters in the post which could be emailed or faxed. Will they order searches immediately?

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.

Is contaminated land a concern in Tiptree?

Tiptree property may have been contaminated by a wide range of environmental factors, like proximity to landfill sites or local historic industrial processes. An environmental search can give more clarity.
