Q.

How do we find the best conveyancing rates in Barlestone for a £762,000 home?

A.

Many property lawyers purport to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing, but extra costs may increase your final invoice. Additional fees found in your solicitor's terms should be fair and clearly defined.

Q.

Will the report on the property's title compiled by the Barlestone conveyancing solicitor advise us on the cost of the council tax for a Band D cottage before contracts are exchanged?

A.

A solicitor will write to the appropriate local council to ask about the relevant council tax charges which will then be detailed in the conveyancing report on title. Council tax charges for Barlestone are listed online at the council site.

Q.

To complete on our purchase ASAP, how can we arrange a fast exchange and completion?

A.

As is often argued, fast conveyancing is the key to is to employing a proactive, diligent lawyer. Consider the following:

  • Do they use email as the preferred mode of communication?
  • Was there a delay delivering a quote?
  • Do they offer 'no move, no fee' protection? This can incentivise a faster transaction.
  • Q.

    My estate agent has named a property solicitor. Must I instruct this solicitor?

    A.

    It is not uncommon for agents in Moston to recommend a conveyancer. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, an agent may decide to recommend whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the best value for you.

    Q.

    What specific search enquiries should a Barlestone lawyer order on a Barlestone building?

    A.

    The routine conveyancing protocol is to get Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW), Environment Search and Gypsum Mining as well as any less common searches e.g. a Official Search of whole with priority.

    Q.

    Do you need a chancel liability search? I am buying a residence on the same road as a 15th Century priory in Barlestone.

    A.

    Chancel liability repair costs can run into £100,000s, which owners of affected property will be compelled to pay on demand to the Barlestone Church council. Following a change in the law, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. Your conveyancing solicitor will suggest an appropriate indemnity policy to address chancel liability. Church of England properties in this area include St Giles.

    Q.

    I've had a conveyancing quote from you. Could I be charged any additional fees?

    A.

    We never charge any extra, hidden charges whatsoever. Some solicitor do not give accurate quotes, only estimates, meaning that you could pay much more when you complete.

    Q.

    How long on average will it take my designated conveyancer to conclude the conveyancing process on a terraced building?

    A.

    The legal process can take anywhere between a month and 3 months dependent on a number of factors such as the efficiency of the seller's property lawyer, or the speed of the local authority. Our property lawyers are very results-focused with the goal of completing the process as quickly as realistically possible.
