What are the best rates for conveyancing for a £293,000 house?


Many buyers seeking discount conveyancing are caught out by the lure of very low conveyancing rates, and many solicitors offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing', but additional charges will be included in the small print. Excited buyers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Any disbursements to be paid should also be clearly stated on the quote. Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.


Is it risky to avoid paying stamp duty to HM Revenue?


Homeward Legal do not recommend any form of stamp duty reduction scheme. These schemes are expensive and , if the scheme fails, you may be charged a penalty of up to 100% of the stamp duty amount owed. There have been a number of government initiatives, however, such as relief for buyers in 'disadvantaged areas'. Your solicitor will advise as to your eligibility.


The internet is full of a number of guidebooks on the subject of doing the legal work yourself for example Buying a House: A Step-by-step Guide to Buying Your Ideal Home (How to). Do I actually need a Maryport conveyancer for my move?

If you want to use the various books to steer you, you can practically engage in the bulk of the legal work without engaging an experienced Maryport conveyancing solicitor. However lawyers would suggest that inherently this is a very risky course of action have a go conveyancers are taking risks without relevant insurance cover which practicing solicitors must obtain.


What will the fees for conveyancing searches total?


With Homeward Legal, Maryport clients are charged at most £249 for a standard bundle of searches.


Do I need to get a house survey?


It is strongly suggested that the majority of purchasers in Maryport book a RICS surveyor to perform a survey. Buyers should be aware that there are a range of defects that will impact a property, that will not be addressed during the conveyancing process, including unsafe chimney circulation and cracks in walls.


If we are buying in the parish of Newbiggin, should we get a chancel search?


Your conveyancer might recommend a chancel search. Chancel repair has the potential to be charged on new owners of a house where church councils may have spared previous owners or tenants.


As a consequence of the widespread flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England, I am questioning if flood risk searches might not be sufficient?


Flood searches conducted by the property solicitor in Maryport should also include the more rigorous Landmark flood search if required.

If you are concerned try to speak to a neighbour or local resident.


Can we check that the property we are buying is in a designated conservation area?


There are numerous conservation areas in or near Maryport. These restrictions can result in the buyer inheriting liability of unauthorised changes, but the benefits will include confidence that property will retain its value. Your conveyancing lawyer will offer more information.
