Q.

How do I get a discount conveyancing quote?

A.

Many online and high street conveyancers offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Often extra costs may pad your final bill. The conveyancing quote should state third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid.The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.

Would getting a home buyers survey be required when we are buying a property?

A.

It is strongly suggested that you order a home buyer survey. A range problems have a negative impact on a property. These include cracks in walls.

Q.

Could our conveyancing costs introduce any extra fees?

A.

Homeward Legal do not hide any hidden extra charges whatsoever. While comparing quotes, be aware that some conveyancers give 'quotes' which are in fact estimates. The bill you receive on completion can be much greater.

Q.

If you are purchasing a apartment close by a priory built in the 1200s in Winterbourne, is it advisable to get a search for chancel liability?

Where land in Winterbourne was once owned by a lay-rector, new owners of that property may be obliged to subsidise maintenance of nearby church land. Parochial Church Councils in Winterbourne must register their interest over property by October 2013, simplifying the chancel search process. The solicitor acting on your behalf will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary. Winterbourne churches where a chancel search may be necessary include Chapel of St. James the Less, St Martin and St Michael the Archangel.

Q.

Should the fixtures and fittings form list things like curtain rails?

A.

Mainly, fixtures are fixed items, such as fitted gas or electric fires to the property and cannot be easily removed, whereas fixtures are free-standing. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction, and which can make the completion of a fixtures and fitting form necessary.

Q.

Do you work with many lenders with Winterbourne offices?

A.

The Homeward Legal partnership work with all the major lenders financing Winterbourne home purchasers. Winterbourne lenders and mortgage specialists include Omnis Financial Solutions, 15 Sedgefield Gdns, Bristol, BS16 6SU, Mears Steve, 28 Alma Vale Rd, Bristol, BS8 2HY, and Mortgage Market, Unit 8 The Mall, Willow Brook Centre/Bradley St, Bristol, BS32 8BS.

Q.

Hinckley and Rugby Building Society is going to be our lender, what do I need to be aware of?

A.

Some lenders have limited the number of solicitors who can act for them. Homeward Legal, however, can act for most lenders.

Q.

Is contaminated land an issue for any homes in Winterbourne?

A.

Several contaminants may ruin property in Winterbourne. Contaminants like proximity to landfill sites will be reported on in environmental search results.
