Q.

How do I get low cost conveyancing?

A.

Confusion over this issue catches out many sellers and buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many firms advertise cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately extra costs will be included in the small print. Any fees found in the terms ought to be fair and be applicable if your conveyancer is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The conveyancing quote should list third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid.We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

How can I find if any of the conservation areas in Warwickshire are in a neglected state?

A.

The most recent assessment of the condition of conservation areas is filed by English Heritage - the following data is currently available at English Heritage: Lower Shuckburgh registered as poor with high vulnerability and no significant change, Southam registered as poor with high vulnerability and deteriorating.

Q.

Can you confirm which Warwickshire lenders your solicitors work with. Whose panels are you on?

A.

Homeward Legal have solicitors with experience working beside many lenders listed with the Council of Mortgage Lenders. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Warwickshire, like Midland Mortgage Services, 1A Keswick Green, Leamington Spa, CV32 6NA, Pendragon Finance, 246 Court Oak Rd, Birmingham, B32 2EG, and Radical Mortgages, Griffin House/Silverthorne Lane, Cradley Heath, B64 5AP.

Q.

What can contaminate land in Warwickshire?

A.

Warwickshire property would be contaminated by a wide range of environmental factors, and an environmental search will confirm that a home is impacted by Warwickshire contaminants including sand or clay quarries and masts or pylons.

Q.

As a result of the extensive flooding last year in the Midlands we are wondering whether environmental searches aren't exacting enough?

A.

Flood searches handled by your Warwickshire lawyer will include a more in depth flood search if required.

If you are apprehensive you might try to contact a neighbour or local resident.

Q.

I have taken out a quote from you. May there be any extra costs?

A.

Our solicitors never hide any hidden extra fees for any reason. Some websites offer unrealistically low 'quotes' which are in fact estimates. You may face a much greater total fee when you have completed.

Q.

We are purchasing a property in the parish of Rowington. Will a chancel search be required?

A.

The conveyancer is likely to recommend that a chancel search be ordered, irrespective of the parish in which the home being purchased is found. Through some Parochial Church Councils have decided to charge chancel repairs on the current owners, a conveyancing solicitor cannot verify that a parish where dues have not recently been paid will not be so in future. For property in the parish of Rowington, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

What will the council tax cost on a buy to let Band E apartment in Warwickshire?

A.
