Q.

Can you confirm your cheapest fee for a £278,000 home? We need a low cost conveyancing estimate.

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many buyers paying out more than they anticipated in the end. Many property lawyers advertise so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however additional charges are often hiding in the small print, left unregarded by busy buyers Any additional fees should be fair and clearly defined and only apply to matters if your lawyer must complete unanticipated additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Any disbursements ought to be defined on your quote. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.

Q.

What can the conveyancing searches generally cost?

A.

Conveyancing searches ranges in cost. Conveyancing searches are charged at cost.

Q.

Do you have good solicitors that manage residential property auction conveyancing in Totton?

A.

Yes - Our firm is familiar with buyers and sellers at auction. It is not uncommon for difficult to value buildings are sold in property auctions which tend to necessitate deeper examination by the conveyancing lawyer. Homeward Legal therefore strongly encourage that auction buyers instruct the lawyer well before the date of the auction to allow sufficient time for a title report of the sellers legal pack.

Following the auction a solicitor needs to be ready for get through the transaction in 28 days as required by the auction conditions.

Q.

Will it be necessary to get a chancel search if we are buying in the parish of Elvetham, near Totton?

A.

The property solicitor should confirm that a chancel search be ordered. Although some Parochial Church Councils have chosen to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of affected property, a conveyancing solicitor cannot verify that a parish where dues have not recently been paid will not automatically be the case for future owners. For property in the parish of Elvetham, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

Do we need a building surveyor to investigate our home purchase?

A.

It is suggested that purchasers arrange a RICS surveyor to perform a survey. There can be a range of issues that affect a property, that will not be addressed during the conveyancing process, including ground movement.

Q.

Are buyers often gazumped in Totton?

A.

Gazumping happens when a seller accepts an offer and then dismisses it, selecting instead a greater offer. Gazumping could occur even months into a purchase. The chance of gazumping exists for almost any purchase. You should instruct a property solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer to reduce the chance of gazumping.

Q.

Are there services who remediate contaminated soil in Totton?

A.

Remediation can often be possible. Speak to Hampshire Turf, 29 Junction Rd, Totton, Southampton, SO40 9HG for more information.

Q.

What can a Totton conveyancing solicitor advise if the building is within a Southampton planning authority conservation area that may have an un-consented artificial stone cladding fitted to it?

A.

Southampton planning authority searches conducted by your solicitor will verify whether the property is inside a conservation area and any evidence of planning authority consent for alterations will be requested.
