Q.

How do we get the best conveyancing rates for a £457,000 property?

A.

Many solicitors advertise so-called cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra charges are often hiding in the terms of engagement which buyers and sellers may have not read carefully The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.

Does the Alford solicitor do any conveyancing searches on the Lincolnshire Victorian mid terrace house I want to buy?

A.

If applying for a mortgage lender mandates at least specific searches, including these searches - Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search and Environmental, and perhaps specific local searches, like a Cheshire Brine Search.

Q.

Our lender is Bank of Scotland, what do I need to consider?

A.

Buyers in Alford need to be aware that, recently, a number of lenders are now reducing their 'solicitor panel'. For buyers, this can result in significantly increased conveyancing costs. We are able to act on behalf of the majority of lenders to ensure that you will not need to pay any additional legal fees to your lender's solicitor.

Q.

What causes purchase conveyancing to take months to complete?

A.

The legal work required to buy or sell property can endure stressful setbacks for many reasons. The delays can sometimes be out of a solicitor's hands. Homeward Legal strive to diminish their impact where possible. Common delays may include difficulties with mortgage finance.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Alford?

A.

Alford is located in East Lindsey District Council, Tedder Hall, Manby Park, Louth, Lincolnshire, LN11 8UP, contact: 01507 601 111

Q.

I am likely to move from our terraced property just outside Alford to a bigger house in Woodhall Spa , at what point to book a home removal company?

A.

Our recommendation is for buyers to put off arranging a removal firm until the point where everyone has set an absolute date which happens after exchange of contracts.

Many house removals firms add a late cancellation amount . Try Riggalls Removals, Woodlands, Mawthorpe, Alford, LN13 9LU Phone: 01507 462336.

Q.

Is a bankruptcy search a fee or disbursement?

A.

Some conveyancers pass off fees which should be included as disbursements. It is not always clear whether a cost is a disbursement or not, and if it ought to be included. This charge is a disbursement not a fee, and is passed on to the buyer at cost.

Q.

If we are purchasing a home by a 16th Century rectory in Alford, is it important to get a chancel search?

A.

In Alford, some owners can be required to pay for upkeep of church property in the locality. Indemnity policies can be arranged if chancel liability is likely to be enforced. The solicitor carrying out the legal work for your move will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate. Churches in this area include All Saints and St Wilfrid.
