How do we get low cost conveyancing?


This catches out many home owners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many law firms offer cheap conveyancing. However extra charges are frequently hidden in the small print which unwary home owners fail to check. Any extra charges which are listed in the terms needs to be fair and be applicable if the lawyer is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.


May my conveyancing fees conceal any hidden charges?


No. Homeward Legal will never charge any additional fees. Some firms only provide estimates disguised as quotes. The bill you receive on completion can be much greater.


We are interested in purchasing a property in Mansfield. Can we establish whether the property is in a conservation area?


Buyers in Mansfield should be aware of numerous local conservation areas. Conservation areas in Mansfield include Bridge Street. Your conveyancing lawyer will offer more information and discuss the relevant responsibilities you would be taking on by purchasing in a conservation area.


The web is full of many very helpful books about doing the legal work yourself for example A Practical Approach to Conveyancing by Robert Abbey and Mark Richards . Do we need a Mansfield solicitor ?


If you are so inclined attempt this you can look after the majority of the if not all of the conveyancing without instructing a dedicated conveyancer in Mansfield .

Naturally legal practices would argue that this choice is a dangerous approach as have a go conveyancers are not covered by acceptable insurance cover which all solicitors firms are required by the SRA to carry.


My lender is Santander - what do I need to know?


House buyers should know that, over the last two years, some lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel', resulting in higher legal costs for purchasers in cases where the property lawyer cannot act for their lender, and another must also be instructed. Homeward Legal can act on behalf of many lenders in the UK, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.


I am intending to buy a property in Stapleford. Should we get a chancel search?


The conveyancing lawyer may suggest a chancel search, whichever parish in which the building being purchased is located. Although some Parochial Church Councils have exercised their right to impose chancel repairs on current owners of land subject to chancel liability, there is no way to be certain that a parish which has not imposed liability will continue to be free from liability, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.


Does the report on title compiled by the conveyancing solicitor in Mansfield advise on the rates of the council tax on a Band G townhouse prior to completing on the purchase?


The property lawyer will approach the Mansfield local authority to ascertain the currently applicable council tax rates, which should subsequently be written in the conveyancing report on title. The correct charges for properties in Mansfield are published on the Mansfield local authority site. As of 19 August 2012 rates are:

  • Band A - £1,078.00
  • Band B - £1,257.00
  • Band C - £1,437.00
  • Band D - £1,617.00
  • Band E - £1,976.00
  • Band F - £2,335.00
  • Band G - £2,694.00
  • Band H - £3,233.00


Which specific conveyancing searches will a Mansfield solicitor apply for a Mansfield house?


Standard legal protocol will be to get these searches - Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW), Environmental and Gypsum and perhaps less common searches, which might include Subsidence.
