We need to find the cheapest conveyancing solicitors. What are the risks?


The confusion over this issue catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many property lawyers claim to offer cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately extra charges may be added into the terms that unknowing homeowners have not reviewed We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.


We are going to buy a period investment flat in a conservation area in Ashby de la Zouch. How do we find data about the standard of repair of the conservation area?


Local conservation areas are created by North West Leicestershire who govern conservation area concerns from paths to the hindrance of ugly shop fronts. English Heritage now maintain a list of the state of repair of conservation areas in Ashby de la Zouch and throughout England.


Would arranging a property survey be necessary when we are buying any property in Ashby de la Zouch?


Homeward Legal firmly suggest that home buyers in Ashby de la Zouch arrange a RICS surveyor to carry out a survey. A range issues affect a property, for example settlement or wet rot. Such issues will not be considered during the conveyancing work itself.


We are buying a property where the seller looks to have fitted new windows on the home in Ashby de la Zouch which might overstep conservation area criteria

A property lawyer will carry out searches identify if the property is located within a designated conservation area, and if so, whether any alterations have appropriate permissions from the local planning authority.


How can we protect ourselves from getting gazumped?


This occurs when the 1st buyer's offer is accepted, and then rejected, by the property owner, opting instead for another buyer's offer. Though gazumping is uncommon when property prices are falling, there is still a risk. The first step in reducing the chance that gazumping will effect you is to instruct a law firm early, and even before acceptance of an offer.


Is Homeward Legal set up to complete fast the conveyancing of auction properties in Ashby de la Zouch?


Yes - In fact we work with auctioneers throughout Leicestershire and do frequently do the legal conveyancing bidders at auction. Our auction team conveyancing lawyers have in the past worked for many successful bidders at regional auctions such as Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London, Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.

Wise buyers at auction know to appoint a qualified conveyancing company as ahead of time as possible for a detailed investigation of the auction pack before the day of bidding.

Subsequently, following the day of the auction your selected lawyer is totally prepared for finishing the legal side of things in the reduced time frame as typically required .


Should I get a chancel search if we are purchasing in Ashby de la Zouch by a parsonage?


Some owners in Ashby de la Zouch can be required to contribute towards the cost of repairs to older church buildings. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a property, but insurance is available should an obligation to fund repairs be enforced. Ashby de la Zouch Church of England properties where chancel liability may apply include Ashby-de-la Zouch Holy Trinity and St. Helen's.


When in the process should you get a solicitor to act for us?


Generally, as soon as possible. The legal work can then start straight away. Early instruction of a conveyancing firm for a purchase may mean that you can shave days off the process by having the details of your instructed solicitor ready when you make an offer, or, if you are selling a property, information, especially from slow third-parties, can be requested even prior to accepting an offer.
