How do we get a cheap solicitor quote to purchase a house?


Both high-street and online solicitors offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional costs will be included in the terms. Any extra charges needs to be reasonable. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.


How much is the council tax on a terraced home in Ackworth?


Commonly, the conveyancing report on title should cover the appropriate Wakefield council tax band. Correct charges for homes in Ackworth are set out on the Wakefield local authority website. At the time of authoring, 18/10/2012, rates are as follows:

  • Band A - £872.00

What average time does it take the lawyer to finish all of the conveyancing formalities on a detached home we are buying?


Getting contracts exchanged can take anywhere between 3 weeks and three months, which can be hampered by any number of things for example the speed of the seller's property lawyer, or the communication, with managing agents. Our chosen solicitors are extremely results-orientated, completing as promptly as we possibly can.


Does your solicitors company specialise the conveyancing for auction properties in Ackworth?


Homeward Legal is very competent with property auction procedures. Very often unusually constructed auction lots like development land, are included in property auctions which tend to want greater examination. Solicitors therefore strongly advocate that purchasers select a property conveyancing lawyer before the auction so there is time for a title report.

Subsequently, immediately after the actual auction your lawyer is wholly geared up to concluding the conveyancing in a as tight time frame as required by the auction conditions.


Which local authority looks after Ackworth?


Ackworth is located in Wakefield Council, Town Hall, Wood Street, Wakefield, WF1 2HQ, phone: 08458 506 506


Which of the Ackworth lender panels are you a member of?

What do we need to be aware of if we buy a converted flat within a Wakefield local authority designated conservation area ?


The local authority LLC1 searches carried out by a property lawyer during the legal process will determine the existence of suitable consent for any development to the property. In the event that no appropriate consents be produced, the solicitor will inform you of the options for example seeking an indemnity insurance or getting retrospective approval.


Furness Building Society is our lender, what will I need to consider?


When arranging a mortgage to purchase a property, legal work must be undertaken in relation to the mortgage. Some lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel', which may result in increased conveyancing costs for property buyers. Homeward Legal, however, can act on behalf of the vast majority of UK mortgage lenders to ensure that you will not need to pay legal costs to your lender's solicitor.
