Q.

We need to find a firm that offers cheap conveyancing. Will I get a quote or and estimate?

A.

Many conveyancers purport to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing, however additional costs are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Busy, stressed buyers ignore these terms at their peril. Your conveyancing quote should state the disbursements to be paid.

Q.

We have a found a home to buy. How do we arrange fast conveyancing?

A.

The key to a faster move is to instruct a proactive lawyer. Beyond that, there are several things you, as the buyer, could do to speed up the legal work, such as, encouraging your lawyer to carry out searches promptly, quickly completing and return any forms and confirming your mortgage offer.

Q.

When in the process should we arrange a solicitor to handle our sale?

A.

If you choose a conveyancing firm with 'no move, no fee' protection, instructing as soon as possible is wise, as there are various tasks which may begin very early in the process. Promptly instructing a firm for a sale may mean that documents can be prepared earlier, considerably accelerating the whole process,

whereas if you are buying your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed.

Q.

Myself and my partner are buying in Wheatley. How can we find out if the house is in a designated conservation area?

A.

Conservation areas safeguard streets and neighbourhoods registered as being of historic or architectural significance. The council will advise further about local conservation areas, and the property solicitor handling your purchase will discuss the relevant responsibilities.

Q.

What will the Wheatley property solicitor do if the flat we hope to invest in is inside the boundary of a registered conservation area and has unfitting dormer windows added?

A.

A property lawyer will make enquiries to see whether the property is affected by a designated conservation area, and if so whether any modifications have required permissions.

Q.

Is preparation of title repair or a indemnity policy a fee or disbursement?

A.

It may not be clear whether a cost is a disbursement or fee. This cost is a fee not a disbursement, and should be included in a quote for your conveyancing.

Q.

Can you give the reasons why the sale conveyancing process requires weeks?

A.

The legal work involved in buying or selling Wheatley property will sometimes be lengthy even in the best of circumstances. Some causes are beyond the conveyancing solicitor's influence. Homeward Legal endeavour to diminish their impact whenever we can do so.

Q.

Do I need to choose a law firm suggested by our estate agent in Dartford?

A.

It is commonplace for estate agents to endorse a solicitor. However, if they are paid a referral fee, there is a risk that an agent may choose the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.
