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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

We are using a lender based in Cumbria, and need to know which Ambleside lenders you work with. Whose panels are your solicitors on?

A.

Most lenders in Ambleside are on our solicitors' panels. Lenders and mortgage specialists in Ambleside include Barclays Bank PLC, The Sq, Hawkshead, Ambleside, LA22 0NZ.

Q.

I have taken out a quote from you. May there be any hidden charges?

A.

No. Homeward Legal's solicitors do not charge any hidden extra fees whatsoever. Be aware that some firms only provide estimates disguised as quotes. You may face a much greater total fee when you have completed.

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.
