Q.

How do I get the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Walkden?

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many homeowners paying out more than they anticipated in the end, and many conveyancers advertise theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional costs are often hiding in the terms and conditions. Extra charges should be reasonable and clear. Any disbursements to be paid should also be clearly stated on the quote. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the solicitors' fees, based on the property you are buying.

Q.

How much will fee for my searches come to?

A.

The cost of searches in Walkden does vary appreciably. They are charged 'at cost'.

Q.

Will we need a building survey?

A.

We recommend that all buyers in Walkden book a property surveyor. Many problems have a negative impact on a property, including flat roof leaks or poor drainage, and issues such as these are not likely to be investigated as part of the conveyancing itself.

Q.

We have taken out a quote from you. Will there be any additional costs?

A.

Homeward Legal will not charge any additional charges whatsoever.

Q.

Flood risk searches are determined from archived data and when you consider climate change e g the serious flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England are they the ideal way to report enough about the Walkden flood risk area?

A.

A qualified conveyancer in Walkden should carry out in depth environmental searches if the first searches identifies a Walkden flood risk.

Property purchasers sometimes speak to a neighbour for extra confidence.

Q.

We are going to purchase with Barclays Bank - what will we need to be aware of?

A.

Traditionally, most solicitors could act for the majority lenders. Over the last two years, some lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel', which may result in increased legal costs for buyers. Homeward Legal, though, can act for most CML-approved lenders so that you will not be required to pay the lender's legal fees.

Q.

What length of time should be planned for the legal work to purchase an apartment generally take, in your opinion?

A.

Generally speaking, the number of weeks required to transact residential property varies. This is influenced by a broad set of issues affecting the property, for example, situations where another party does not quickly respond an enquiry. Homeward Legal solicitors strive to ensure every sale receives communicative and proactive service, resulting in the fastest possible outcome.

Q.

Are pre-completion searches disbursements or fees?

A.

Disbursements and fees should be identified on a quote for your conveyancing. These costs are disbursements not fees, and is passed on to the buyer at cost.
