A.

Q.

We need to find a cheap solicitor quote for selling a home. What should we check?

A.

Many online and high street conveyancers offer cheap conveyancing, but additional charges will be included in the terms and conditions. A quote for conveyancing in Whiteley should also clearly state the disbursements to be paid. Additional costs should be reasonable.

Q.

Do I need to get searches for chancel liability? We are buying a Whiteley flat on the same road as a church furlong.

A.

Some owners in Whiteley can be required to cover the cost of repairs to a local church. As a consequence of a recent Act, interest over any affected land in Whiteley must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. Whiteley Church of England properties where chancel liability may apply include Church (Conventional District).

Q.

Does the solicitor in Whiteley do any property on the Hampshire Edwardian end-of-terrace cottage I am intending to purchase?

The routine procedure is to get Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environment Search, and possibly specific searches such as Official Search of Whole with Priority (OS1).

Q.

What type of environmental conveyancing searches about the potential risk of possible flooding in the Hampshire region will a Whiteley lawyer carry out?

A.

A key part of the legal due diligence procedure involved in buying a home involves a conveyancing lawyer conducting environmental searches that set out detail on the local Whiteley flood risk. A more specialist flood history/risk search (most likely a Landmark Database search) may be advised by your conveyancing solicitor in Whiteley if the results of the environmental search highlight a flood risk.

Q.

Our lender is Kent Reliance - what do I need to be aware of?

A.

Over the last two years, some lenders have limited the firms who can act for them. For house purchasers, this can result in significantly increased legal costs. Homeward Legal can act on behalf of most lenders in the UK.

Q.

Is a chancel repair liability search a fee or disbursement?

A.

Some solicitors pass off additional costs 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, meaning the solicitor passes on the charge at cost.

Q.

How long can conveyancing legal work often require? I am buying in Whiteley.

A.

For most Whiteley residential property, the time needed to transfer property is not wholly predictable, with reference to several aspects. The national average is 8 to 12 weeks, but we aim for faster conveyancing, driving the transaction to complete within 6 to 8 weeks.

Q.

What are the reasons why Whiteley sale conveyancing requires weeks?

A.

Conveyancing could be subject to numerous interruptions or delays. Homeward Legal seek to reduce their consequences wherever a difference can be made by, for example, ordering searches as early as possible.
