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.

I am intending to buy a home in the parish of Dowlishwake. Do we need a chancel search?

A.

Your solicitor may suggest a chancel search, irrespective of the parish where the residence being bought is located. In older areas of Wedmore, chancel repair has the potential to be

charged on the current owners of a residence where Parochial Church Councils may have not done so in the past.

Q.

The estate agent we're using in Cullompton has put forward the solicitors firm. Is it a good idea to instruct this solicitor?

A.

An agent will often endorse a conveyancer. However, if they are paid a referral fee, the agent may recommend the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.

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.

How early should we instruct a conveyancing solicitor to handle our purchase?

A.

If you choose a solicitor with 'no move, no fee' protection, instructing as soon as possible is wise. Promptly instructing a conveyancing solicitor can reduce any chance of the transaction falling through.

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.

How is contaminated land in Wedmore investigated when buying?

A.

Land may have been contaminated by many factors caused by man and by nature. Contaminants such as sand or gravel pits should be reported on during conveyancing searches.
