We need to find low cost conveyancing in Glenfield. What do we need to consider?


Several solicitors advertise 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Often additional charges are often hiding in the solicitor's terms that unknowing homeowners have not reviewed Any additional costs listed in terms and conditions ought to be fair and only apply to matters if your conveyancer must complete additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


Do you suggest making the effort to avoid paying for stamp duty land tax?


SDLT is generally payable for residential property sold for more than 125,000 pounds. We do not recommend any stamp duty reduction, as such schemes are expensive and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed .


We are using a Leicestershire lender, and need to know which Glenfield lenders your solicitors work with. Whose panels are your solicitors on?


The Homeward Legal partnership have solicitors who have experience working with all the major lenders providing financing to Glenfield purchasers. Lenders and mortgage specialists in Glenfield include Mortgages Made Easy, 88 Faire Rd, Glenfield, Leicester, LE3 8ED.


Do I need to get searches for chancel liability if we are buying close by rectory grounds in Glenfield?


In Glenfield, where land was once owned by a lay rectors, new owners of that property may be obliged to fund upkeep of an old church building. As a result of the Land Registration Act 2002, interest over any affected land in Glenfield must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. Glenfield church lands where chancel liability may apply include St Peter.


Bank of Ireland is our mortgage lender, is there anything I need to consider?


When buying with a mortgage, legal work must be undertaken in relation to the mortgage. Purchasers should consider that, in some cases, lenders have limited the firms who can act for them, resulting in greater conveyancing costs for buyers if their solicitor is unable to act both on their behalf, and for their lender. Homeward Legal will act on behalf of many mortgage lenders to ensure that you will not need to pay legal fees for your lender's solicitor.


For fast legal work on the purchase of a £807k house, how could we speed up the process?


Crucial to buying faster is to use a communicative property lawyer. When choosing a property lawyer, you should ask yourself the following: Which communication methods do they use? Days can be wasted waiting for letters in the post which could be emailed or faxed. Do they work on a 'no sale, no fee' basis? Did you experience any delays when requesting a quote?


What kind of research in relation to the potential risk of floods in the Leicestershire region will my Glenfield property solicitor report on a Sixties property we are hoping to buy?


Your property lawyer conducts standard protocol environmental searches that will include Glenfield historical flood risk information.


Is gazumping accepted in Glenfield?


Gazumping occurs when an offer is accepted, and then rejected, by the property owner, choosing instead a better offer. Although gazumping is less common in a declining market, there will always be a risk. Instructing a fast, efficient solicitor as soon as possible to handle your transaction should help to reduce the likelihood of gazumping.
