Q.

How do I find a cheap solicitor quote to sell a property?

A.

Various firms claim to offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional costs can increase the final invoice. Any fees which are listed in terms and conditions should be fair and clearly defined.

Q.

Are charges for obtaining copies of building regulation approval disbursements or fees?

A.

It may be unclear whether a cost is a disbursement or fee. These costs are fees not disbursements, and should be included in a quote.

Q.

Is a property survey advisable if we are buying a house in Woolwich?

A.

Homeward Legal firmly suggest that most Woolwich buyers arrange a survey when buying in Woolwich. Buyers should be aware that there are a wide range of problems which can affect a property. These can include dry rot, and issues such as these are not likely to be investigated as part of the conveyancing itself.

Q.

We need especially fast Woolwich solicitors - is that you guys?

A.

Candidly too many law firms are very dilatory which creates further annoyance to buying or selling a home.

Homeward Legal always allocate you to firm that try to push from the beginning to the end of the buyer and seller chain . Additionally Homeward Legals solicitors are actually chosen because they implement speed focused HMRC and Land Registry integrated systems to finish your sale in the shortest time.

Q.

Does your company specialise the legal conveyancing of auction properties in Woolwich?

A.

Homeward Legal is very competent with auction buyers and sellers. Traditionally hard to value lots such as properties for investment, are bought at auction which need increased fact-finding. Homeward Legal therefore strongly suggest purchasers to choose a residential conveyancing lawyer in advance of the day of the auction for a detailed review. Q.

What is the council tax on a Forties semi-detached house in Woolwich?

A.

Q.

Will HS2 affect property in Nechells?

A.

Yes. HS2 Phase 1 will likely affect numerous properties in Nechells. Birmingham City Local Authority searches provide HS2 information only if the Nechells property is located within 200m of the proposed route. A specific HS2 search may extend that to 1000m or 5000m, and provide more detail.

Q.

To complete on our purchase ASAP, how can we ensure fast legal work in Woolwich?

A.

As is often argued, finding a proactive, diligent property lawyer is essential to fast Woolwich conveyancing. When identifying an appropriate a property lawyer, you should ask the following: Do they offer 'instant' online quotes? Which communication methods do they use? Days can be wasted waiting for letters in the post which could be emailed or faxed. Do they order searches immediately?
