Q.

What do you charge for the legal fees on a £673,000 house? We need to find a fixed rate conveyancing quote.

A.

This catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many solicitors purport to offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional charges may increase the final bill. Additional fees included in terms of engagement ought to be fair and clearly defined. A quote for conveyancing in Upminster Bridge should also clearly state any disbursements to be paid.Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Conveyancing and environmental searches are ascertained from archived records and given recent events for instance the fact that 2012 was second wettest year since 1920, are they actually good enough to find out sufficient information about the Upminster Bridge future flood risk?

A.

A thorough Upminster Bridge property lawyer should carry out conveyancing searches (environmental) if the initial search spots a any kind of the local Upminster Bridge flood risk

For greater peace of mind it could be worth trying to converse with a neighbour or local resident.

Q.

My local agent has offered the conveyancing solicitor whom they usually use. Will it be cheaper to use this firm?

A.

Your Montpelier agent will often refer a conveyancing firm. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, some agents may 'recommend' the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the best value for you.

Q.

What additional enquiries concerning the risk and history of flooding to properties in Havering will the Upminster Bridge conveyancer give details on?

A.

An important step in the legal process involves the lawyer carrying out property environmental searches that go into details with respect to Upminster Bridge historical flood risk.

Q.

What are our options if we buy a maisonette in a Havering planning authority designated conservation area ?

A.

An integral part of conveyancing involves making enquiries of Havering council to check conservation area status and consent for developments. .

Q.

Do we need a building survey for our house we are interested in buying?

A.

We heavily advise that you order a survey. There are a wide range of defects which can negatively affect a property. These include wet rot and cracks around door frames. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.

Q.

Does 'fixtures and fittings' include things like light switches?

A.

In the main, fixtures are fixed items, such as external light fixtures to walls, floors or ceilings, whereas fixtures are free-standing items, such as lamps or lightshades. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.

Q.

What are 'conveyancing searches'?

A.

These searches are a bundle of enquiries performed on behalf of the party intending to buy the property, such as a local authority search. These will not give information on the physical condition of the property.
