Q.

How do I find affordable conveyancing in Wickford?

A.

Lack of clarity over this point catches out many sellers and buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many property lawyers promote supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however extra fees can inflate your final invoice. Extra costs needs to be fair.

Q.

I really need to complete on the conveyancing on a leasehold flat within 28 days, are Homeward Legal fast Wickford conveyancing solicitors ?

A.

Candidly many property solicitors companies can be too sluggish which adds huge stress to buying and selling. Homeward Legals conveyancers approach is different as we have invested in new integrated systems . Importantly , we assign a conveyancers incentivised to proactively communicate throughout the buyer and seller property chain .

Q.

I am buying in Wickford, and have had a quote from you. Are there any supplementary hidden charges?

No. Homeward Legal never hide any hidden extra costs whatsoever. Some solicitors only estimate conveyancing costs, meaning that you could pay much more when you complete.

Q.

Following recent news about the fact that 2012 was second wettest year since on record we are asking if flood searches may not be sufficient?

A.

Property environmental searches conducted by the solicitor in Wickford should include a more specialist flood search if required.

If you are concerned why not get in touch with a next door neighbour.

Q.

How do I circumvent paying SDLT?

A.

Stamp duty reduction scheme should not be considered when purchasing in Wickford. Such schemes are often uneconomical and , if the scheme fails, you may be charged a penalty of up to 100% of the stamp duty amount owed.

Q.

When do we need to speak to a solicitor?

A.

The short answer is, the earlier in the process you can instruct a conveyancing firm, the better. The legal work can then begin very early in the process. Instructing a solicitor early for a purchase may mean that your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed, or, if you are selling a property, prior to marketing the property, documents can be prepared to make it potentially more attractive to motivated buyers.

Q.

Should I employ the conveyancing offered by my local agent?

A.

Many agents in South Ockendon have arrangements with solicitors where they refer clients to them. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, there is a risk that the agent may suggest the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.

Q.

Are Wickford many conservation areas going to affect our property?

A.

These areas preserve areas of historical or architectural value. Your conveyancing lawyer will offer more information.
