Q.

I need a firm that offers cheap conveyancing in Batley. Can you assist?

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many property buyers and sellers paying out more than they anticipated in the end. Many property lawyers advertise theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately additional charges are frequently hidden in the terms.

Q.

What is the council tax on a Forties terraced Band C house in Batley?

A.

Frequently a title report will give information the relevant Kirklees council tax band. The latest tax rates for residents of Batley are listed online at the Kirklees council site. On 21 July 2012 the different rates are:

  • Band A - £937.00
  • Band B - £1,093.00
  • Band C - £1,249.00
  • Band D - £1,405.00
  • Band E - £1,717.00
  • Band F - £2,030.00
  • Band G - £2,342.00
  • Band H - £2,810.00

Q.

GE Money Home Lending is our mortgage lender, what will I need to consider?

A.

Some lenders are now reducing their 'solicitor panel', which may result in increased conveyancing costs for purchasers. We can act on behalf of most lenders.

Q.

Does 'fixtures and fittings' include things like cupboards?

A.

Chiefly, there is no absolute definition of fixtures and fittings. In order to avoid later issues, a fixtures and fittings form should be completed and will clarify precisely what is to be included.

Q.

Will I need a building surveyor to check for issues affecting our Batley property purchase?

A.

We recommend that most purchasers order a property survey when you intend to buy in Batley. It is a fact that there are a wide range of concerns which can affect a property, including settlement, and these will not be addressed by your conveyancing solicitor.

Q.

What length of time should it take for my designated property solicitor to carry out all of the legal work for a flat in a period home we are thinking of buying?

A.

Getting contracts exchanged can take anywhere from 1 month to three months, which can be hampered by any number of things, such as the speed of the vendor's conveyancing solicitor, or the speed of your lender. Homeward Legal's conveyancing solicitors are notably results-focused completing as quickly as possible.

Q.

We have requested a quote from you. Might I be charged any extra charges when the transaction completes?

A.

Homeward Legal never hide any additional fees for sale or purchase conveyancing.

Q.

I am intending to buy in Batley. How can we check that the property is in a conservation area?

A.

These areas delineate regions defined as being of 'special architectural and historic interest'. The property solicitor handling your purchase can advise further and confirm potential liability for unauthorised works.
