Q.

I need to find the cheapest conveyancing solicitors. What should I check?

A.

Many firms promote 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra fees are often hiding in the small print, left unread by preoccupied buyers A conveyancing quote should, in addition, define any disbursements.Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Is a deed of variation paid to the conveyancing solicitor?

A.

A good quote will list all fees and disbursements. This cost is a fee not a disbursement. It should be included in a conveyancing quote.

Q.

What searches will the solicitor in Ambleside apply for on a Ambleside building?

A.

The common procedure is to get Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search, Environment Search and Gypsum Mining Search and occasionally less common searches, which might include Limestone Search.

Q.

Is it important that I get a chancel search? I am buying a property near parish grounds in Ambleside.

A.

As a result of chancel repair liability, the owners of property in Ambleside which was once owned by a 'lay

rectors' can be liable for repairs to a church in the area. A chancel search is employed to check whether such a liability exists. Ambleside churches where chancel liability may apply include Baptist Church and St Mary.

Q.

How much can fees for our searches come to?

A.

The cost of conveyancing searches varies appreciably, and will be dependent on your lender's requirements. Searches are paid out to a 3rd party, and will not be included in a quote for solicitor's fees.

Q.

Our lender is Yorkshire Bank - what do we need to be aware of?

A.

When buying with a mortgage, your lender will require legal work to be carried out on their behalf. Recently, a number of lenders are now reducing their 'solicitor panel', resulting in greater conveyancing costs for buyers if their chosen solicitor is unable to act both on their behalf, and for their lender. Homeward Legal, however, are able to act for most lenders to ensure that you will not need to pay the lender's costs.

Q.

Would ordering a property survey be required when purchasing a house in Ambleside?

A.

Homeward Legal firmly recommend that home buyers in Ambleside order an inspection if you are planning to buy in Ambleside. Many issues can negatively affect a property. These include severe weathering. Such issues will not be considered during the conveyancing work itself.

Q.

Doing your own conveyancing by bypassing a lawyer in Ambleside is becoming possible as a buyer of a house. However actually be a false economy ?

A.

It is certainly possible to carry out the legal work unaided. That said, a solicitor is familiar with a long list of skilled tasks such as applying for and interpreting office copies and communicating with managing agents many of which really need a qualified solicitor. Despite that solicitors practices are obliged to carry the correct indemnity cover in order to protect you in the event of negligence.
