Q.

How do I find a discount conveyancing quote in Winchester?

A.

Many online and high street firms promote theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra costs are often hiding in the terms. Any charges should be clearly defined and only apply to matters if the lawyer must complete additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Any disbursements should also be clearly stated on a quote. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

What conservation areas are there in Winchester?

A.

These areas safeguard areas of historic or architectural significance. Easton, Exton and Hambledon are among the conservation areas in Winchester. A conveyancing lawyer will address the impact buying in a conservation area may have.

Q.

What type of local searches regarding the risk of local flooding in the Hampshire region will a Winchester lawyer be able to carry out on a Sixties home I am going to purchase?

A.

Your conveyancer will apply for formal property conveyancing searches that incorporate Winchester flood risk data.

Q.

We are purchasing in Winchester with Virgin - what do we need to know?

A.

Over the last two years, some lenders have reduced the number of firms able to act for them. Homeward Legal will act on behalf of most lenders to keep legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

Will our conveyancing fees conceal any supplementary hidden costs?

A.

No. Homeward Legal do not hide any additional costs under any circumstances. You should be aware that some firms only provide estimates disguised as quotes. The final bill you receive may be much more.

Q.

We plan to buy a home in the parish of Carisbrooke. Will a chancel search be needed?

A.

Your property solicitor is likely to recommend that a chancel search is taken out. In Winchester's much older areas, chancel repair may be apportioned on owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils may have spared previous owners or tenants.

Q.

The property seller has unfortunately installed conspicuous new windows on the house which we think might conflict with Exton conservation area guidelines.

A.

The lawyer is required to ascertain if the property is affected by a conservation area, and if so whether any modifications have the appropriate consent. In the absence of any the necessary permissions, your solicitor will inform you of the options, which include requesting retrospective consent from the appropriate local authority or buying an indemnity insurance policy.

Q.

Can you confirm which Winchester lenders you work with. Which panels are you on?

A.

Homeward Legal are able to work with all the major lenders serving buyers in Winchester. Lenders and mortgage specialists in Winchester include St James Place, Shepherds Cottage/Main Rd, Owslebury, Winchester, SO21 1LU, Topaz, 76 Springvale Rd, Winchester, SO23 7NB, and Place 4 Mortgages, 41 Southgate St, Winchester, SO23 9EH. The lawyer handling the work for your Winchester purchase or sale can give more detail.
