Q.

I am trying to find affordable conveyancing in Wedmore. What should we check?

A.

Many online and high street conveyancers purport to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. However extra costs are often hiding in the terms of engagement which homeowners may have not read carefully Any extra fees listed in terms and conditions should be reasonable. They only be applied if your lawyer is required to complete extra work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

Q.

Direct Line Mortgages is our lender - is there anything we need to check?

A.

Recently, a number of lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel. For buyers, this can result in significantly greater legal costs. Homeward Legal are able to act for all large mortgage lenders so that the buyer will not have to pay legal fees for your lender's solicitor.

Q.

Unfortunate financial circumstances dictate that we really need to complete on the selling of a leasehold flat in a short time frame, are you fast Wedmore solicitors ?

A.

Honestly, a lot of home moving legal firms are extremely ponderous adding unnecessary uncertainty to home moving.

Our panel of solicitors always communicate through the whole of the chain and who employ new legal software systems to exchange on your home move as quickly as possible.

Q.

Flood searches are standard procedure for home buyers but in light of recent events for example the serious flooding in Sept 2012 in South West England are they actually good enough to ascertain enough about the Wedmore risk of flooding?

A.

Conveyancing searches conducted by the Wedmore conveyancing solicitor should include a far more in depth Landmark flood search if it is felt necessary.

It could be worth trying to converse with a close neighbour for that further peace of mind if still concerned.

Q.

Do we need a building survey for this home purchase?

A.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors heavily advise that the majority of purchasers in Wedmore arrange a building survey. There are many defects that can affect a property, which will not be covered by the legal work, including wet rot or insect infestation.

Q.

What type of local environmental searches concerning the risk of local flooding in Somerset will the Wedmore solicitor conduct?

A.

Your conveyancing solicitor will conduct official environmental searches that incorporate Wedmore area flood risk data. Depending on the results, a Wedmore property lawyer could recommend an inexpensive (around twenty pounds) and more specialist search.

Q.

Is a Local Authority search a disbursement or fee?

A.

Some solicitors frequently hide fees which should be included as disbursements. It is not always obvious whether a cost is a fee or not, and whether it should be included. This charge is a disbursement not a fee, and is passed on at cost.

Q.

What will a Wedmore property solicitor do if the property I am planning to buy is in a local authority conservation area and has incongruous dormer windows installed?

A.

Your conveyancing solicitor will make enquiries to confirm whether your new home is affected by a designated conservation area, and if so, whether any alterations have the essential permission from the Sedgemoor planning authority.Should no local authority consents be in evidence, your Wedmore conveyancer will inform you of all options, which include getting covered by an indemnity policy or obtaining retrospective permission from Sedgemoor local authority.
