The closest train station to Weymouth is Weymouth and the nearest airport to Weymouth is Bournemouth International Airport (30 miles).

Weymouth Community is the most convenient hospital to Weymouth.

Q.

What are the best conveyancing rates for a £757,000 property?

A.

Various firms advertise so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however extra charges are frequently hidden in the terms of engagement which home owners may have not read carefully Get a quote using the Homeward Legal quote calculator for the property you are buying.

Q.

Is an administration fee a disbursement or fee?

A.

All fees and disbursements should be identified on a quote for your conveyancing. This cost is a fee not a disbursement, and should be included in a quote.

Q.

What does the Weymouth property lawyer do when the flat I want to buy is inside a conservation area and has inappropriate dormer windows fitted?

A.

Your property solicitor will make enquiries to identify whether the property is located within a designated conservation area, and if so whether any modifications have the necessary permissions from the West Dorset planning authority.

Q.

What kind of local authority searches concerning the risk of possible flooding to properties in Dorset will the Weymouth lawyer actually carry out for a residential house we intend to buy?

An experienced conveyancing solicitor will conduct official property environmental searches that should include Weymouth flood risk data.

Q.

We need to know which Weymouth lenders your solicitors work with. Which panels are you on?

A.

The Homeward Legal partnership have solicitors with experience working beside many lenders. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Weymouth, including Nightingale Mortgages, 14 Maunsell Av, Preston, Weymouth, DT3 6PB, Scott Martin, 8 Gordon Row, Weymouth, DT4 8LL, and Nightingale (Mortgages) Ltd, 53 Dorchester Rd, Weymouth, DT4 7JT.

Q.

Should we order a chancel search if we are buying in the parish of Stoke Wake?

A.

A solicitor may suggest a chancel search. Chancel repair has the potential to be charged on the current owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils may have spared previous owners or tenants. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.

Q.

Should we have a contingency plan for gazumping?

A.

This occurs when a property seller agrees to an offer, then refuses it, choosing instead another buyer's offer. The chance of gazumping exists for almost any purchase. Instructing a conveyancing solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer to handle your transaction should help to reduce the likelihood of gazumping.

Q.

Our agent has suggested the conveyancing that they have used before. Will it be cheaper to use this solicitor?

A.

Both agents and mortgage brokers will often recommend a solicitor. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, the agent may recommend whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the best solicitor for your needs.
