Q.

How do I get affordable conveyancing?

A.

This catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many property lawyers purport to offer cheap conveyancing. Often additional fees will be included in the terms and conditions. Any fees which are listed in the small print needs to be reasonable and clear. The disbursements to be paid should also be clearly stated on a conveyancing quote. Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

Q.

Will I need a homebuyer report?

A.

It is strongly suggested that property purchasers arrange a house surveyor. Many issues can negatively affect a property, for example severe weathering, and issues such as these are not likely to be investigated as part of the conveyancing itself.

Q.

I am intending to buy an Edwardian terraced house. Should we have 'conveyancing searches' ordered?

A.

These searches are standard enquiries requested by the conveyancing solicitor with a particular authority, and deal with the legal aspects of the purchase.

Q.

We are buying a converted chapel in the parish of Allendale St Peter. Will a chancel search be needed?

A.

Whether you are buying a property in Barnard Castle or elsewhere in the county, the conveyancing lawyer is likely to recommend that a chancel search be taken out. In older areas of Barnard Castle, chancel repair can be imposed on current owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) may have not done so in the past.

Q.

Are charges for obtaining duplicate freehold company share certificates disbursements or fees?

A.

Unfortunately, some firms hide additional costs as disbursements. It is not always clear whether a cost is a fee or disbursement, and whether it should be included. These costs are fees not disbursements, and should be included in a quote.

Q.

When in the conveyancing process do I need to instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Barnard Castle?

A.

With a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, the sooner you instruct a conveyancing solicitor, the better. Instructing your solicitor earlier can reduce any chance of your sale or purchase falling though.

Q.

Is homewardlegal.co.uk experienced enough to move quickly on the conveyancing for auction properties in Barnard Castle?

A.

Yes - our property solicitors do frequently carry out work for buyers and sellers at auction. Conveyancers consistently tell buyers to instruct a suitable solicitor well before the auction for a review of the lot. Subsequently, following the actual auction your chosen solicitor is totally geared up to completing the conveyancing in as short a time frame as usually required by the conditions of sale.

Q.

Which searches does my conveyancing solicitor in Barnard Castle do when buying a Barnard Castle home?

A.

The common conveyancing procedure is to get Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search and Environment Search and perhaps unique particular e.g. a Company Searches.
