Q.

We are looking for a fixed rate conveyancing quote in Wokingham. What is included?

A.

This point catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many conveyancers claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately extra charges may pad your final invoice. Your conveyancing quote ought to list the disbursements to be paid. Any costs found in the terms needs to be reasonable and clear. They only be applied if the conveyancer must complete work beyond standard conveyancing , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our online quote calculator will generate an accurate quote for your transaction.

Q.

Do we need a house survey?

A.

It is suggested that purchasers in Wokingham instruct a property surveyor to carry out a survey. There are many concerns that have a negative impact on a property, such as wet rot. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.

Q.

We are going to buy with Topaz Finance, what will we need to consider?

A.

Purchasers should be aware that a small number of lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel'. For purchasers, this can result in significantly greater legal costs. Homeward Legal are able to act for most lenders in the UK so that you will not be required to pay any additional legal fees to your lender's solicitor.

Q.

What type of local conveyancing searches as respects the risk of possible flooding in the Berkshire area will the Wokingham lawyer actually apply for a Victorian property we are going to buy?

A.

A lawyer makes an application for standard protocol property conveyancing searches that will include Wokingham flood risk area data. A substantially more specific dedicated flood risk search, such as the Homecheck search, may be recommended by the Wokingham property solicitor if the results of the environmental search show that there is a risk of flooding.

Q.

Is a deed of variation paid to the conveyancing solicitor?

A.

Fees and disbursements ought to be clearly identified on the quote for your conveyancing, with no additional charges of any kind in the small print. This cost is a fee not a disbursement. It should be included in a quote.

Q.

Could the fees for my conveyancing incorporate any extra fees?

A.

Regrettably, hidden fees are not uncommon in conveyancing. Our solicitors do not hide any extra, hidden charges. Some firms only provide estimates disguised as quotes, meaning that you could pay much more when you complete.

Q.

Do you advise that we get a chancel liability search? I am buying a Wokingham flat by a glebe.

A.

Owners of property near to church property in the locality must contribute towards the cost of repairs, where chancel repair liability exists. Parochial Church Councils in Wokingham must register their interest over property by October 2013, simplifying the chancel search process. Your conveyancing solicitor will suggest an appropriate indemnity policy to address chancel liability. Wokingham Church of England properties include All Saints, St Sebastian, St. Paul and The Community Church of St Nicholas, Emmbrook.

Q.

We need to know which Wokingham lenders your conveyancing solicitors work with. Which panels are you on?

A.

Wokingham lenders and mortgage specialists include NatWest, 5 Broad St, Wokingham, RG40 1AX, A F P, 119 Barkham Ride, Finchampstead, Wokingham, RG40 4EP, and Premier Financial Services, Unit 4 Anvil Court/46 Denmark St, Wokingham, RG40 2BB.
