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.

When do I need to instruct a solicitor in Warwickshire?

A.

Whether you are buying or selling in Warwickshire, the sooner the better, as the legal work can begin straight away. Some authors suggest waiting before instruction until a chain is completed, but opting to delay can jeopardise your sale or purchase.

Q.

How can we avoid getting gazumped?

A.

Gazumping occurs when the 1st buyer's offer is accepted, and then rejected, by the property seller, in favour of another buyer's offer. The danger of gazumping is present in any transaction. To reduce the likelihood of being gazumped, consider instructing a solicitor as early as possible.

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.

How will my Warwickshire conveyancer investigate the risk and history of local flooding in the Warwickshire region?

A.

A qualified residential property conveyancing lawyer will apply for formal conveyancing searches that should include Warwickshire flood risk information. An inexpensive in-depth flood history/risk search (most likely a Landmark Database search) might be recommended by your Warwickshire conveyancing solicitor if the results of the initial searches identify a potential flood risk to the property.

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.

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.
