Q.

How do we get low cost conveyancing in Victoria Docks?

A.

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'. However additional costs will be included in the solicitor's terms of engagement. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

Do I need a house surveyor to review the home purchase?

A.

It is highly recommended that you arrange a RICS surveyor to perform a survey. A wide range of issues affect a property, which include severe weathering. Such issues will not be considered during the conveyancing work itself.

Q.

How is contaminated land in Victoria Docks investigated?

For added history you could always get in touch with a future neighbour.

Q.

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

A.

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.
