Are additional fees applied? We are trying to find discount conveyancing in Retford.


Many online and high street solicitors offer so-called cheap conveyancing, but additional fees are frequently hidden in the terms of engagement. Based on the property you intend to buy, our online quote calculator will generate an accurate statement of conveyancing fees.


Do I need a building survey for this home purchase?


The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors suggest that buyers order a home buyer survey. There can be many defects that can affect a property, which will not be covered by the legal work, including corrosion of pipework and rotten roof timbers.


Why can the conveyancing process be so delayed?


Retford conveyancing will occasionally experience delays. Homeward Legal work hard to minimise their effect wherever possible to do so. Delays may include a slow firm acting for the lender.


We are buying with Beverley Building Society - what will I need to consider?


In some cases, lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel'. This can mean greater conveyancing costs for home buyers. Homeward Legal, though, will act for all large mortgage lenders.


Will we need a chancel liability search? We are buying a home on the same street as a parsonage in Retford.


Repair costs resulting from chancel liability can total hundreds of thousands of pounds. Insurance may be available to protect a buyer should a Retford Parochial Church Council enforce liability. Churches in the local area include St Michael the Archangel, St Saviour and St Swithun.


How much would my conveyancing searches be?


With a Homeward Legal conveyancing solicitor, a purchase conveyancing client charged no more than £249 for the standard search bundle.


What specific searches should my Retford property lawyer get when carrying out the conveyancing for a Retford home?


The normal conveyancing protocol is to get Local Authority (council), Drainage and Water Search, Environmental and Gypsum Mining Search and occasionally specific local Retford searches, which might include Index Map Search (SIM).


Does the report on title compiled by the Retford property lawyer report back on the amount of council tax on a Band B flat prior to exchanging contracts?


Your solicitor will speak to the relevant council to reveal the relevant council tax charges which should then be set out in the report on title. Correct rates for Retford are listed at the Bassetlaw local authority site. On, 14 June 2012, rates are:

  • Band A - £1,070.00
  • Band B - £1,248.00
