How do I get the best rates for conveyancing for a 430,000 property?


Many law firms claim to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra fees may inflate the final invoice. Any additional fees should be reasonable. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.


Should we get a chancel search? I am buying close to church grounds in Aston.


Chancel liability repair costs can run into £100,000s, which owners of affected property will be compelled to pay on demand to the Aston Church council. Several sources are used to determine liability in Aston, including parish records. Church lands in Aston include S.Saviour, Ss Peter & Paul, St James and St Mary.


Do you advise taking precautions to avoid paying stamp duty to the Revenue?


Stamp duty must be paid on residential property over £125,000. Stamp duty mitigation is not recommended. Such schemes are expensive and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later.


Will we need a chancel search if we are intending to purchase in the parish of Gedling?


The conveyancing lawyer should confirm that a chancel search be ordered. Although some Parochial Church Councils have opted to impose chancel repairs

on owners of land subject to chancel liability, a conveyancing solicitor cannot verify that a parish where dues have not recently been paid will not be so in future.


Which factors will contaminate land in Aston. Are these checked for thoroughly?


A range of contaminants caused by natural causes has the potential to affect residential property in Aston . Contaminants including other land contamination or landfill sites should be reported on during conveyancing searches.


What is the risk of gazumping?


Gazumping takes place when a purchaser's offer is rejected, following initial acceptance, by the seller, selecting instead a greater offer. Because acceptance of an offer is not binding on the seller until exchange of contracts, there is a risk of being gazumped. Consider instructing a proactive solicitor early to reduce the chance of your offer being gazumped.


What average time does it take the property solicitor to conclude the conveyancing formalities on a semi detached period building we are intending to purchase in Aston?


The conveyancing process can take anywhere from a month to three months dependent on various factors such as the speed of the vendor's conveyancing solicitor, or contentious issues that may arise. Homeward Legal's conveyancers in Aston are extremely results-orientated, with the intention of completing the legal process in as short a time as we possibly can.
