Q.

I am looking for the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Wheathampstead. How do we get a quote?

A.

Many online and high street law firms purport to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Often additional charges will be included in the small print. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.

If we are purchasing near Wheathampstead, in the parish of Wigginton, do we need a chancel search?

A.

Whether you are buying a property in Wheathampstead or elsewhere in the county, the lawyer may suggest that a chancel search be taken out. Through some Parochial Church Councils have decided to charge chancel repairs on new owners, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish where repair costs have not been paid before will remain liability-free for new owners. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

We are taking out a mortgage with Dudley Building Society, what will I need to be aware of?

A.

When buying with a mortgage, the lender will require legal work to be carried out. Purchasers should consider that some lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel, potentially creating higher

legal costs for purchasers. Homeward Legal are able to act on behalf of most lenders to keep legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

What type of environmental searches as respects the potential risk of floods around Hertfordshire will my Wheathampstead solicitor actually carry out?

A.

An important part of the conveyancing procedure carried out when buying a property involves the solicitor applying for conveyancing searches that go in some details regarding Wheathampstead flood risk. Depending on the results, your property solicitor in Wheathampstead may advocate a substantially more specialist search.

Q.

We are intending to buy a converted investment property in a Wheathampstead conservation area, how do I find details on the current state of repair of the Wheathampstead conservation area?

A.

English Heritage now maintain a list about the state of repair of conservation areas as well as the risk of deterioration. Local conservation areas are specified by the local authority (St Albans) who police conservation area concerns from what can be demolished to the obstruction of rundown streets.

Q.

As a consequence of the major flooding in the UK in April 2012, we are asking if property conveyancing searches aren't sufficient?

A.

Flood searches carried out by your conveyancer in Wheathampstead will include the more rigorous flood search if the risk is deemed significant.

If you are apprehensive you can always contact a future neighbour.

Q.

What will conveyancing searches be?

A.

With a Homeward Legal solicitor, a client is charged at most £249 for a standard bundle of searches. Common searches include a mining search and a drainage search.

Q.

What makes purchase conveyancing legal work to be so delayed?

A.

The conveyancing process may be exposed to significant delays. Homeward Legal do our best to diminish their effect whenever possible. There are numerous reasons for delay, such as difficulties with mortgage finance.
