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.

What type of flood plain searches in relation to the potential risk of floods in the Cumbria region will a conveyancing solicitor in Ambleside be able to do for a Regency home we are intending to purchase?

A.

Your property conveyancing solicitor applies for formal property environmental searches that will include Ambleside historical flood risk data.

Q.

I am intending to buy a home in the parish of Selside. Will it be necessary to get a chancel search?

A.

The conveyancing solicitor is likely to recommend a chancel search. In older areas of Ambleside, chancel repair dues can be collected on the current owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils have previously chosen not to do so, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.

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.

Do you recommend taking action to bypass paying SDLT?

A.

SDLT is usually payable for home purchases priced at over one hundred and twenty-five thousand pounds. We firmly advise against any stamp duty avoidance. Such schemes are often uneconomical and often likely to fail.

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.

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.

Is homewardlegal.co.uk set up to 28 day completions on the conveyancing for residential property auction properties in Ambleside?

A.

Yes - Our CQS solicitors often take instructions from sellers at auction. We usually advocate purchasers to instruct their chosen property lawyer well in advance of the day of the auction to allow adequate time for a review of the legal papers for the lot.

Post auction day itself your instructed lawyer is fully able to concentrate on quickly concluding all of the legal work inside as short a time frame as usually required by the terms of sale.
