Q.

How do I get the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Belper?

A.

Both high-street and online solicitors purport to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing, however additional fees will be included in the terms. Any fees should be fair and clearly defined and only come into force where the lawyer must complete work beyond standard conveyancing for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

Unforeseen circumstances dictate that we have a requirement to exchange contracts on the legal work on our share of freehold flat within 6 weeks, do Homeward Legal use any fast Belper conveyancers ?

A.

We only introduce you to solicitors which are client focused and attempt to communicate through the whole of the buyer and seller chain . Furthermore , our lawyers are specifically chosen as they use the latest productivity systems to complete on the sale fast.

Q.

Would arranging a survey be sensible when buying a house?

A.

It is strongly recommended that buyers book a surveyor. Buyers should be aware that there are many issues that have a negative impact on a property, which a conveyancing solicitor will not report on, including poor ventilation.

Q.

What will the council tax cost me for a Thirties Band C maisonette in Belper?

A.

The pertinent council tax band should usually be detailed in the conveyancing report on title, and by the local council. The latest council tax charges for residents of Belper are published at the Amber Valley council website. At the time of writing (12 December 2012) rates for all bands are:

  • Band A - £998.00
  • Band B - £1,164.00
  • Band C - £1,330.00
  • Band D - £1,497.00
  • Band E - £1,829.00
  • Band F - £2,162.00
  • Band G - £2,494.00
  • Band H - £2,993.00

Q.

Is simultaneous exchange and completion a disbursement or fee?

A.

It is not always clear if an itemised charge is a disbursement or fee. This cost is a fee not a disbursement. It should be included in a quote.

Q.

We have a found a £160,000 property to buy. How do we guarantee fast conveyancing?

A.

Essential to fast Belper conveyancing is to instruct a experienced conveyancer. There are, in addition, several things you could do, such as, encouraging your conveyancer to carry out searches promptly, arranging your mortgage offer and completing all forms as soon as possible.

Q.

Which Belper lenders do you work with?

A.

Most lenders in Belper are on our solicitors' panels. Local mortgage lenders and brokers include Derbyshire Building Society, 1 Eyes Court/Town Street, Belper, DE56 1EH, Derbyshire Building Society, 32 King St, Belper, DE56 1PS, and Click Into Place, 5 Yardley Way, Belper, DE56 0ES.

Q.

We are taking out a mortgage in Belper with The Woolwich, what do I need to consider?

A.

Until recently, it was usually straightforward for solicitors to act for both a buyer and their lender. Over the last two years, some lenders are now reducing their 'solicitor panel'. This can mean higher conveyancing costs for home buyers. We can act for most mortgage lenders.
