We need a fixed rate conveyancing quote in Lincolnshire. because we are on a limited budget.


Various solicitors purport to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes. Often additional costs will be included in the terms. Extra charges should be reasonable and clear. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


I am intending to buy a property in the parish of Laceby. Are we advised to get a chancel search?


The solicitor may suggest a chancel search, regardless of the parish where the property being bought is found. Although some Parochial Church Councils have taken the decision to charge chancel repairs on the current owners, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish which has not been subject to chancel liability in the past will not continue to be so, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.


What can our conveyancing searches be?


The cost of conveyancing searches can vary substantially, subject to the searches your lender requires. The most frequently used searches include an environmental search and a mining search.


Which elements are key to organise a fast conveyancing transaction?


As is often argued, a fast transaction is crucial to is to use a proactive and experienced conveyancing solicitor. When finding a suitable a conveyancing solicitor, : How soon will they order searches? Did you experience any delays when requesting a quote? Are phone, fax and email their preferred methods of contact


Is there a chance that we could be gazumped?


This occurs when one buyer's offer is, following agreement, later rejected by the house seller, choosing instead another buyer's offer. There is almost always a danger of gazumping. The first step in reducing the chance that gazumping will effect you is to instruct an efficient solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer.


Is it important to get a chancel search? I am buying close to a parson's close in Lincolnshire.


Where land in Lincolnshire was once owned by a lay-rector, new owners of that property may be obliged to fund upkeep of an old church building. A chancel search checks that such a liability exists.


Is it recommended to avoid paying stamp duty in Lincolnshire?


Stamp Duty Land Tax is usually due on purchases sold for over £125,000. Stamp duty avoidance must be treated with caution, as such schemes are often uneconomical and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed and the total stamp duty, with interest, will be due.


Are there many areas of conservation in Lincolnshire?


Conservation areas safeguard neighbourhoods of 'special architectural and historic interest'. Caistor, Gainsborough Town and Market Rasen are among the conservation areas in Lincolnshire. Your property solicitor will be able to advise further, in regard to relevant conservation area restrictions in Lincolnshire.
