How might the conveyancing process be so drawn out?


Conveyancing will occasionally be drawn out. Homeward Legal appreciate how difficult it can be to face these, and seek to reduce their cost wherever possible. There are numerous reasons for delay, such as slow solicitors acting for the other side.


Is there anything we are supposed to do to make our Eastleigh conveyancing faster?


As is often reported, faster conveyancing is essential to instruct a experienced conveyancer. There are, in addition, a number of things you as the buyer can do to accelerate the legal work, such as, requesting status updates from the conveyancer regularly,

if you intend to get a house survey, doing so as early as you can and promptly completing and return any forms.


Should we get a chancel search? We are buying in Eastleigh.


Chancel repair can require home owners to subsidise maintenance of local churches. Indemnity policies can be arranged if chancel liability is likely to be enforced. The solicitor carrying out the legal work for your move will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary. Churches in the local area where a chancel search may be appropriate include All Saints and St Francis, Nightingale Avenue.


How do I guard against being gazumped?


Gazumping takes place when a seller accepts an offer, only to reject it in favour of a greater offer. The chance of getting gazumped is present in any transaction. Consider instructing a proactive solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer to reduce the chance of your offer being gazumped.


What length of time should it take for my designated property solicitor to exchange contracts all of the conveyancing formalities on the top floor of sixties house in Eastleigh?


Getting contracts exchanged can take anywhere from around a month and three months, which can depend on any number of things e.g. the efficiency of the sellers solicitor, or whether your solicitor has to act for your lender.


What does my conveyancing searches be?


Conveyancing searches ranges in cost, depending on the searches required.


We plan to buy a restored chapel in the parish of Widley. Will a chancel search be required?


The solicitor could advise a chancel search, regardless of the parish where the building being bought is found. Chancel repair may be imposed on the current owners of a building where Parochial Church Councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners.
