How do I find a discount conveyancing estimate?


Several firms purport to offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however additional charges may be added into the terms of engagement. Busy, stressed property buyers and sellers ignore these terms at their peril. Any disbursements should also be included on your conveyancing quote Any charges which are listed in the terms should be fair. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


Which of the mortgage lender panels in Selby are you a member of?


We work in conjunction with most lenders. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Selby, such as M & M Mortgage Solutions, 44 Micklegate, Selby, YO8 4EQ.


We are buying on a Selby ex-industrial site. Is the soil likely to remain contaminated by waste minerals like caesium?


There are regulations in place to prevent future top-soil contamination. The local authority for Selby will be able to provide more detail on cases of contamination.


If Selby land is contaminated, can the top soil be cleaned up cheaply?


If property in Selby has been contaminated, remediation may be possible, and a local provider such as T & T Cheesbrough, Riley House, Gateforth, Selby, YO8 9LE can provide more information.


Property solicitors in Selby conduct official searches when they are instructed by a property purchaser but what specific searches?


If buying and taking out a mortgage a mortgage lender will expect a solicitor to get at least the following for Selby: Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search (Con29DW or personal) and Environment Search and occasionally specific searches, which may include a Index Map.


My mortgage lender will be Hinckley and Rugby Building Society, what do I need to know?


Some lenders have limited the firms who can act for them, potentially creating increased conveyancing costs for house purchasers. Homeward Legal can act for all major mortgage lenders to keep legal costs to a minimum.


How many weeks should the legal work to purchase a home take, in your opinion? The property is also local.


The time required to transfer a residence is not wholly predictable, with reference to a number of aspects, including situations where another party does not quickly respond an enquiry. With Homeward Legal, your sale, purchase or remortgage is handled as fast as possible, without compromising on service.


Will my assigned Selby solicitor report back to me about the amount of council tax to be paid for a Band B townhouse before exchange?


The property lawyer will approach the Selby local council to ask about the up to date council tax rates, which will then be added to the conveyancer's title report.
