Q.

We are trying to find a discount conveyancing estimate. What do we need to consider?

A.

Several solicitors purport to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing', however extra costs will be included in the solicitor's terms. Any additional costs found in terms of engagement needs to be fair. Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

Q.

What causes sale conveyancing legal work to require so much time and effort?

A.

Conveyancing in Twickenham could be delayed for many reasons. Some delays are out of your solicitor's hands. Homeward Legal do our best to minimise the effect of these delays by proactively handling all enquiries.

Q.

How soon is it wise to instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Twickenham?

A.

With a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, instructing as early as possible is better. Early instruction of a solicitor for a sale may mean that prior to marketing the property, documents can be prepared to make it potentially more attractive to motivated buyers, whereas if you are buying you can shave days off the process by having the details of your instructed solicitor ready when you make an offer.

Q.

I have read about the fact that 2012 was second wettest year since records began we are thinking that flood searches might not be sufficient?

A.

Your Twickenham conveyancing solicitor should apply for detailed property environmental searches if the first conveyancing searches flag up a Twickenham flood risk.

For added area background it may be sensible to get in touch with a neighbour or local resident.

Q.

How many weeks may conveyancing legal work require? I am buying in Twickenham.

A.

The time needed to sell or purchase a property is not wholly predictable. This wide range results from a range of issues which may affect the property. These may include matters where a property has a mortgage. 8 to 12 weeks is the average for many firms, we however will, wherever feasible, work towards a six-week timescale.

Q.

Is simultaneous exchange and completion a disbursement or fee?

A.

It may not be clear whether an item on your quote is a disbursement or a fee. This cost is a fee not a disbursement. It should be included in a quote.

Q.

Will lawyer in Twickenham do any property on the London thirties end-of-terrace house I am intending to buy?

A.

If purchasing and getting a mortgage the mortgage lender mandates the following Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW) and Environmental, as well as any less common searches for example Commons Search.

Q.

Might the conveyancing fees in Twickenham take into account any hidden charges?

A.

Unfortunately, buyers must be on their guard for considerable extra costs hidden in small print. We will not charge any hidden extra fees.
