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.

Environmental searches are all well and good but with recent flooding for instance the Met Office projecting more intense rainfall are they sufficient to confirm sufficient information about the Wokingham flood risk area?

A.

Flood risk searches carried out by your Wokingham solicitor should include the far more in depth search (Landmark) if the risk is deemed significant.

If you are still worried you can call a close neighbour or nearby Berkshire flooding repair expert try: Hall J, 346 Finchampstead Rd, Finchampstead, Wokingham, RG40 3JY Tel: 0118-978 7931.

Q.

Q.

The internet is full of a growing number very helpful guidebooks on the subject of doing your own legal work such as Which? Guide to Doing Your Own Conveyancing by Paul Butt. In which case, do I need to use a Wokingham property solicitor ?

A.

Theoretically speaking there is absolutely no reason why a buyer cant do the bulk of the legal work yourself. That said, a lawyer juggles a significant number of actions e.g. raising additional enquiries and checking replies to additional enquiries many of which are more safely handled with appropriate a skilled professional. In addition solicitors must carry acceptable cover in order to protect you in the event of omissions.

Q.

How much is the council tax on a Fifties end of terrace Band D house in Wokingham?

Q.

How many weeks does the conveyancing process usually require, according to your estimates? I am purchasing a home in Wokingham.

A.

For the majority of clients, the number of weeks taken to buy or sell a property varies, affected by several issues affecting the property, for example, if it is a leasehold property being transferred. Our conveyancing solicitors strive to ensure your sale or purchase is handled quickly, and to the highest standard of service.

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.

The current owner has fitted unsightly roof aerials on the house in Wokingham which I think may contravene local conservation area criteria

A.

The solicitor should identify if the property is within a conservation area and whether any modifications have the essential permissions.
