Q.

I am trying to find the cheapest conveyancing solicitors. What should I check?

A.

Both high-street and online conveyancers promote supposedly cheap conveyancing. However additional charges are often hiding in the small print. A conveyancing quote should also clearly state the disbursements to be paid.We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

I am buying a residence in Nottingham St James. Is a chancel search compulsory?

A.

Your conveyancing solicitor may suggest that a chancel search is taken out, regardless of the parish where the property being bought is located. Chancel repair may be apportioned on current owners of a property where parish councils may have spared previous owners or tenants. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.

Q.

Which Bestwood lender panels are your solicitors members of?

A.

Homeward Legal work alongside most lenders approved by the Council of Mortgage Lenders. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Bestwood, such

Q.

Can you state how we avoid paying out for SDLT?

Stamp duty reduction scheme should not be considered, because these schemes are expensive and can be very unlikely to succeed.

Q.

Do you recommend your solicitors to specialise the legal conveyancing of residential property auction properties in Bestwood?

A.

Homeward Legal is very knowledgeable with buyers at auction. Conveyancers invariably recommend auction buyers to decide on a good conveyancing lawyer well in advance of the property auction date to allow enough time for a full report of the legal documents.

Subsequently, immediately after the day of the auction your property lawyer is totally able to concentrate on completing the transaction in a as tight time frame as usually required .
