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.

Does homewardlegal.co.uk handle the conveyancing of auction properties in Upminster Bridge?

A.

Our company is used to working with property auction procedures. Conventionally more complicated to convey buildings like un-mortgageable properties, are listed at auction which tend to demand greater exploration before committing. Homeward Legal therefore advocate that auction buyers instruct a local conveyancing firm well before the date of the auction to allow enough time for a full investigation of the sellers documents. After the auction, the lawyer will be able to concentrate on finalise all of the legal work in the 28 day time frame, a normal requirement of terms of sale.

Q.

We are buying on a new development ex-industrial site. Could the soil be contaminated by industrial waste like molybdenum?

A.

Steps are taken on a local and national level to clean up topsoil contamination. Also considering issues such as asbestos, contaminants affecting Upminster Bridge property will be factored into an environmental search.

Q.

Is contaminated land a concern for the majority of residential properties in Upminster Bridge?

A.

Several contaminants may reduce the value of residential property in Upminster Bridge . Contaminants including nearby electrical substations or waste disposal sites should be considered as part of the appropriate search.

Q.

How long may I plan for conveyancing to transact a home generally need?

A.

In general, the length of time needed to buy or sell property does vary, dependent on potentially many aspects. Nationwide, the average is around ten weeks, whereas our solicitors aim to complete the process within six weeks.

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.

For our lender, we have chosen Nationwide Building Society - what do I need to check?

A.

When buying with a mortgage, your lender will require legal work to be carried out on their behalf. Buyers need to be aware that some lenders have reduced the number of firms able to act for them. Homeward Legal can act on behalf of many lenders in the UK so that the buyer will not have to pay an additional fee for your lender's solicitor.

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.
