Q.

We need to find a cheap solicitor quote for buying a residence. as we are on a budget.

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this issue catches out many home owners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors purport to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing', but extra charges are frequently hidden in small print. Fees listed in your solicitor's terms needs to be fair. They only come into force where the solicitor must perform additional tasks , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

It seems that zinc (Zn) soil contamination may be an issue in Topsham. Please advise.

A.

Soil contamination by industrial waste, including metals, will have occurred in parts of Topsham. Also considering issues such as groundwater contamination and ammonia, contaminants affecting Topsham property will be factored into an environmental search.

Q.

Which actual searches should a lawyer in Topsham conduct when acting on a Topsham home?

A.

The routine procedure will be to obtain the following Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search, Environment Search, Tin Mining Search and China Clay Search and, depending on certain criteria, special local Topsham searches, which may include a Chancel Search.

Q.

How soon do I need to arrange a conveyancing solicitor?

Generally, earlier is preferable. Some groups suggest holding off instruction until an offer is accepted, but doing so will put you at a disadvantage compared to better prepared buyers, or if your buyer decides to pull out due to delays.

Q.

Is homewardlegal.co.uk able to 1 month completions on the legal conveyancing of auction properties in Topsham?

A.

The legal team work with auctioneers throughout Devon and regularly act for bidders at auction. Lawyers invariably advise auction buyers to decide on a SRA regulated lawyer well in advance of the auction day for a thorough investigation.

Subsequently, following the property auction, your lawyer must be focused on conclude the legal process inside the 4 week time frame, a normal requirement of terms of sale.

Q.

I am hoping to be moving from our terraced residence near Topsham into our new house in Tedburn St Mary what is the best point to appoint a removals firm?

A.

We tend to suggest that home vendors put off booking a removals company until exchange of contracts has occurred as in all probability the firm moving date wont have been agreed. Why not try Dainton Self Storage, Greendale Business Park, Woodbury Salterton, Exeter, EX5 1EW Phone: 01392 882323.

Q.

I am buying in Topsham with Nationwide Building Society, is there anything we need to be aware of?

A.

When purchasing with a mortgage, your lender will require legal work to be carried out on their behalf. Buyers should consider that some lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel. This can mean increased legal costs for buyers. We will act on behalf of all major mortgage lenders so that you will not be required to pay an additional fee for your lender's solicitor.

Q.

I've had a quote from you. Will there be any hidden costs?

A.

Regrettably, buyer should read the terms of their conveyancing quote careful to identify any hidden fees. Homeward Legal will not charge any hidden extra charges. If you are comparing quotes, consider that some firms only provide estimates disguised as quotes, meaning that you could pay much more when you complete.
