What will the overall charge be on the sale of a 136,000 house? I am looking for low cost conveyancing in Walham Green.

A.

The confusion over this topic catches out many property buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many firms purport to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes. However additional fees are often hiding in the solicitor's terms. The disbursements to be paid ought to be listed on the quote Any additional fees listed in your solicitor's terms needs to be reasonable.

Q.

My agent has suggested a law firm who they generally use. Must we instruct this firm?

A.

It is commonplace for estate agents to refer a solicitor. Such referrals should be thoroughly considered, as some agents choose the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the law firm with the best reputation.

Q.

Does homewardlegal.co.uk manage the conveyancing of auction properties in Walham Green?

A.

Our company is accustomed to working with property auction procedures. Quite often more complicated to convey homes like development plots are bought in auctions and these require greater review. Solicitors therefore strongly advocate that bidders instruct a SRA regulated conveyancing company prior to the auction to allow for a detailed investigation of the documents.

Q.

How is Walham Green contaminated land identified?

Residential property could be contaminated by a wide range of natural and human-influenced issues, and an environmental search will confirm that a specific plot of land is impacted by contaminants in the region including nearby waste management facilities.

Q.

Flood searches are assessed from archived records and when you consider recent events for instance the fact that last year was second wettest year since records began are they the best way to check sufficient information about the Walham Green flood risk?

A.

A good lawyer in Walham Green should carry out environmental searches if the first search establishes a significant risk of flooding in Walham Green.

For more assurance it may be prudent to converse with a neighbour or local resident.

I am on a deadline and would like get fast conveyancing, what should we get to accelerate our move?

A.

Experienced buyers will tell you that faster conveyancing is essential to is to employing a communicative solicitor. When selecting a solicitor, ask yourself the following: Was there a delay delivering a quote? Do they use email? Are they 'no move, no fee'? This can incentivise a faster transaction.
