We are trying to find an affordable Cumbria conveyancing quote. and what is included?


Many online and high street firms promote cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately additional charges are often hiding in the terms of engagement. Excited sellers and buyers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Your conveyancing quote should also clearly state applicable disbursements.


How many weeks should I expect it to take my assigned conveyancer to carry out all of the legal process on the top floor of sixties home we are intending to purchase?


The conveyancing process can take anywhere from 1 month to 3 months based on any number of issues e.g. the efficiency of the vendor's property lawyer, or the speed of the local authority.


Does Homeward Legal advise on property auction conveyancing in Cumbria?


Yes - Our company is able to work with auction buyers and sellers. Our niche auction team of solicitors have acted for numerous bidders at regional auctions that include Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London, Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.

Sensible buyers at auction will formally appoint their chosen lawyer asap to allow sufficient time for a detailed investigation. well in advance of the actual auction. Subsequently, following the auction day itself your dedicated lawyer is totally prepared for completing the conveyancing inside the limited time frame as required .


Which individual searches will my solicitor in Cumbria conduct when acting on a Cumbria property?


The normal conveyancing procedure is to obtain Local Authority, Drainage Search (Con29DW or personal), Environment Search and Gypsum Mining Search as well as any specific searches, which may include a Chancel Repair Liability Search.


Will the conveyancing solicitor in Cumbria inform me about the amount to be paid of council tax for a Band B building before completing on the purchase?


The conveyancer will liaise with the Eden local authority to ascertain the latest council tax charges which will then be included in the conveyancing report on title. Up-to-date charges for Cumbria are tabled online at the Eden local authority site. At the time of writing (08 July 2012) rates are as follows:

  • Band A - £1,040.00
  • Band B - £1,213.00
  • Band C - £1,386.00
  • Band D - £1,559.00
  • Band E - £1,906.00
  • Band F - £2,252.00
  • Band G - £2,599.00
  • Band H - £3,119.00


How much does the charge for conveyancing searches come to?


Conveyancing searches in Cumbria ranges in cost. Common searches include an environmental search and a local authority search.


We are buying a property in the parish of Natland. Will a chancel search be required?


The solicitor may suggest that a chancel search be taken out, whichever parish where the property being bought is found. Chancel repair may be imposed on current owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have not imposed the same liability on the last owners, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.


In what ways can the property lawyer in Cumbria advise us on the risk of floods in the Cumbria area?


A solicitor applies for environmental searches that incorporate Cumbria historical flood risk information. Furthermore a Cumbria conveyancing solicitor will sometimes advocate a significantly more detailed flood search.
