Q.

We are looking for a law firm that offers cheap conveyancing. What should be watch out for?

A.

Numerous solicitors purport to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes. However additional costs are frequently hidden in the terms and conditions. Get a quote using the Homeward Legal quote calculator for the property you are buying.

Q.

How many weeks does conveyancing legal work take, according to your estimates? We are selling in Yorkshire and the Humber.

A.

For the majority of buyers and sellers, the time taken to sell or purchase residential property can vary, dependent on several factors. Our lawyers work hard to ensure every sale is handled quickly, and to the highest standard of service.

Q.

I have taken out a quote from you. Will we need to pay any additional fees?

A.

Homeward Legal's solicitors do not charge any hidden extra fees. If you are comparing quotes, consider that some websites offer unrealistically low 'quotes' which are in fact estimates, which they will not be required to adhere to.

Q.

What makes the sale conveyancing process appear to be so drawn out?

A.

The legal work undertaken to transfer a home in Yorkshire and the Humber could take more time. We aim to minimise their effect by proactively handling all enquiries.

Q.

Which individual property conveyancing searches will my Yorkshire and the Humber conveyancing solicitor apply for on a Yorkshire and the Humber home?

A.

The normal conveyancing procedure will be to get Local Authority (council), Drainage Search, Environmental, Tin Mining Search and China Search and perhaps less common searches such as Chancel Repair Liability Search.

Q.

We are buying on a former industrial site. Apparently chromium (Cr) soil contamination may be an issue.

A.

Most top-soils in Yorkshire and the Humber have some degree of contamination, from industry and natural causes. Also considering issues such as herbicides, contaminants affecting Yorkshire and the Humber property will be factored into an environmental search.

Q.

Do fixtures and fittings include things like lamps or lightshades?

A.

Commonly, fixtures are 'fixed' to the property, whereas fixtures can be more easily removed. 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 this makes the completion of a fixtures and fittings form essential.

Q.

What can impact land in Yorkshire and the Humber, and will they be checked for thoroughly?

A.

Property will be contaminated by a wide range of natural causes, like infilled land. An environmental search will reveal this in more detail.
