Q.

What are the best conveyancing rates for a £121,000 house?

A.

Various firms advertise supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing', but additional fees may be added into the solicitor's terms. Extra charges listed in the terms needs to be clearly defined. Any disbursements should also be included on the conveyancing quote. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the solicitors' fees, based on the property you are buying.

Q.

We are taking out a mortgage with Rooftop Mortgages - is there anything I need to know?

A.

Buyers should be aware that, in some cases, lenders have limited the number of solicitors who can act for them. We can act for many lenders in the UK.

Q.

Do we need to instruct the solicitor that often works with by the estate agent in Canning Town?

A.

Agent recommendations are a common practice route to find a solicitor. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, the agent may recommend the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

Does Homeward Legal manage the legal conveyancing of auction properties in Wimbledon?

A.

Our firm is very competent with auction buyers and sellers. Our highly qualified solicitors and licensed conveyancers have worked for numerous buyers at regional property auctions that include Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London,

Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.

Savvy buyers at auction know to instruct a good conveyancing company as soon as they can to allow sufficient time for an investigation of the auction pack well in advance of the property auction. Q.

For fast conveyancing on the purchase of a £434,000 property, what do we need to do?

A.

Crucial to faster conveyancing is to instruct a experienced lawyer. Consider the following when selecting:

  • Did you experience any delays when requesting a quote?
  • What methods of communication do they use? Posting documents can adds days of waiting to a purchase.
  • How soon will they order searches?

Q.

We are enquiring about council tax rates on a period end of terrace property in Wimbledon, how much are they?

A.

In most cases the title report should include the relevant Wandsworth council tax band. The correct charges for Wimbledon are set out on the Wandsworth local authority website. As at (30 June 2012) the rates are:

  • Band A - £456.00
  • Band B - £532.00
  • Band C - £608.00
  • Band D - £684.00
  • Band E - £836.00
  • Band F - £988.00
  • Band G - £1,140.00
  • Band H - £1,367.00

Q.

The house being bought is on a brownfield land. It appears that vanadium soil contamination may be an issue.

A.

Regulations have been passed to control pollution, waste, water and chemical contamination. Environment search results will factor contaminants, including metals and others such as chlorine.

Q.

Handling the legal work without the help of a property lawyer in Wimbledon appears to be becoming possible when selling a flat but would it really be foolish ?

A.

There are no arguments why a home mover cant engage in the legal process without the help of an expert solicitor in Wimbledon.

However, a Wimbledon lawyer handles a significant number of roles from including liaising with the insolvency office for k15 entries or apportioning service charges which really need a skilled professional. Fundamentally DIY lawyers do not have appropriate cover that all firms and their solicitors are bound to carry.
