What do you charge for the legal fees on a £541,000 house? I am looking for fixed rate Burton upon Trent conveyancing.


Confusion over this issue 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'. However additional costs are often hiding in small print. This small print is often not read by buyers in a hurry.


Is it advisable that we get searches for chancel liability? I am purchasing in Burton upon Trent.


The judgement in Aston Cantlow (PCC) v Wallbank reaffirmed that 'lay rectors' of property must pay for church repairs. Terms used in a property's name, like 'abbey', may indicate chancel liability. A conveyancing lawyer will be able to advise further.

Leeds Building Society is our lender, is there anything we need to be aware of?


When taking out a mortgage, your lender will require legal work to be carried out on their behalf. Recently, a number of lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel', resulting in increased legal costs for house purchasers if the lender insists upon their own chosen solicitor . Homeward Legal will act for the majority of mortgage lenders, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.


We need to complete this purchase as soon as possible, how can we arrange fast legal work?


As is widely reported, finding a proactive lawyer is key faster conveyancing. There are numerous things you as the buyer could do to speed up the legal work. These include:

  • requesting regular updates from your lawyer and keep the pressure on
  • answering any queries raised by the lawyer as soon as possible
  • if you intend to get a house survey, doing so as early as you can


Will we need a property survey for this home purchase in Burton upon Trent?


We strongly advise that home buyers order a house survey when you plan to buy in Burton upon Trent. It is a fact that there are a range of defects that can negatively affect a property. These include flat roof leaks, and issues such as these are not likely to be investigated as part of the conveyancing itself.


What causes conveyancing for a sale to require so much time and effort?


The conveyancing process will sometimes take more time for a variety of reasons. Sometimes, the reasons are regrettably out of a lawyer's control. We endeavour to minimise their consequences wherever feasible by driving the sale or purchase forward. Common delays may include the time taken to return management information.
