I need a cheap solicitor to buy a new build home. because we are on a limited budget.


Many firms purport to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often additional charges are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms which property buyers and sellers may have not read carefully Any additional charges listed in your solicitor's terms needs to be reasonable. Third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid should also be clearly stated on your conveyancing quote. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


How many weeks may conveyancing require, on average?


The length of time required to transfer a house may vary, based on numerous considerations which can include if third parties fail to promptly answer queries. 8 to 12 weeks is the average for many firms, we however will, wherever feasible, work towards a six-week timescale.


If I am intending to buy near Westhoughton, in the parish of Westhoughton, do we need a chancel search?


Whether you are buying a property in Westhoughton or elsewhere in the county, the property lawyer is likely to recommend that a chancel search is taken out. In Westhoughton's much older areas, chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on owners of

a property where church councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.


For a lender, we have chosen Santander, what will I need to know?


Buyers should be aware that, over the last two years, some lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel', resulting in increased legal costs for property buyers if the lender insists upon their own preferred solicitor . Homeward Legal are able to act on behalf of many mortgage lenders to keep legal costs to a minimum.


I am buying a £334000. How is SDLT assessed?


SDLT will depend on the value of the house or flat. Stamp duty will be £10020 on a £334000 home.


Are there many areas of conservation in Westhoughton?


Locales deemed to be of architectural or historic interest, such as model housing estates, will be designated as conservation areas. A lawyer will discuss the relevant responsibilities for affected areas in Westhoughton.


Do you have good solicitors that advise on the legal conveyancing of auction properties in Westhoughton?


Yes - Homeward Legal is very capable working with sellers at auction. Conventionally hard to value properties are listed at auction which need greater due diligence. We therefore strongly recommend buyers to instruct a good lawyer before the property auction to allow adequate time for an investigation of the auction pack.

Subsequently, immediately after the actual auction a conveyancing lawyer will need to be geared up to finish the legal work inside 28 days after exchange as required by the terms of sale.


What is the optimum stage to a home buyer make arrangements with a removals firm?


It is prudent to is for home movers to put off instructing a removal van until such time as you and the other side has decided an absolute home moving date that takes place following shortly after when exchange of contracts.
