How do we get affordable conveyancing?


Many solicitors offer theoretically cheap conveyancing. However extra fees will be included in the small print. A quote should state the disbursements to be paid. Additional charges which are listed in terms of engagement should be clearly defined and be applied only where the lawyer is required to complete extra work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the solicitors' fees, based on the property you are buying.


Our mortgage lender will be Chelsea Building Society - what will we need to know?


When buying with a mortgage, legal work must be undertaken in relation to the mortgage. In some cases, lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel', potentially creating increased legal costs for buyers. Homeward Legal will act for the vast majority of lenders, ensuring that an additional solicitor will not be required to act for your lender.


At what point do you need to find a solicitor in Woodbridge?


Simply, the earlier in the process you can instruct a solicitor, the better, as conveyancing involves several tasks which may be performed immediately. Prompt instruction of a solicitor can limit the risk of the sale or purchase falling though.

Which government authority looks after for watching over the state of the conservation areas in Woodbridge and Woodbridge?


Conservation areas are created by Suffolk Coastal who maintain the state of the area including things like billboards, side extensions and private spaces. Following a campaign, English Heritage have assembled records about the state of repair of conservation areas in addition to the risk of deterioration or improvement.


We are purchasing a property in the parish of Harkstead. Will a chancel search be required?


Your conveyancing solicitor might recommend a chancel search. Through some Parochial Church Councils have exercised their right to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of affected property, there is no guarantee that a parish where dues have not recently been paid will not continue to be so. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.


How much time does conveyancing legal work generally need, on average?


The time taken to transact a home varies, with reference to a number of issues which may affect the property, for example, whether the property is leasehold. With Homeward Legal, your sale or purchase is undertaken with the utmost care and speed.
