This catches out many sellers and buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many solicitors offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'.

Q.

We plan to purchase a residence in Bryngwyn. Is a chancel search necessary?

Whichever Victoria Docks parish in which you are buying, a solicitor might recommend a chancel search. Although some church councils have opted to impose chancel repairs on owners of affected property, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish which has not been subject to chancel liability in the past will not continue to be so, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.

Q.

How much will the conveyancing searches in Victoria Docks be?

A.

With Homeward Legal, clients buying in Victoria Docks required to pay at most £249 for a standard bundle of searches. Informative but less frequently ordered extra searches include a British waterways search.

Q.

I have requested a quote from you. Will there be any extra charges?

A.

No. Homeward Legal do not hide any extra, hidden costs for your standard conveyancing. You should be aware that some conveyancers give 'quotes' which are in fact estimates, which could be totally different to your final invoice.

Q.

We are bidding at a property auction and would like ensure a fast conveyancing transaction, what do we need to do?

A.

Finding a proactive and experienced solicitor is crucial to buying faster. There are several things you as the buyer can do to accelerate the legal work, including, responding to your solicitor by phone, fax or email wherever possible, arranging any finances require to complete the purchase and requesting regular updates from your solicitor and keep the pressure on.

Q.

Will I need searches for chancel liability? We are purchasing a apartment in Victoria Docks.

A.

Repair costs resulting from chancel liability can total hundreds of thousands of pounds. Owners who have bought property prior to 2003 may be totally unaware that a liability exists if a chancel search was not carried out. The solicitor handling your conveyancing will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate.

Q.

Following recent news about the Met Office projecting more intense rainfall, I am concerned that environmental searches aren't detailed enough?

A.

A qualified conveyancer in Victoria Docks will advise you to include specialist food risk searches if the standard search establishes a significant risk of flooding in Victoria Docks.
