Q.

I need to find a fixed rate conveyancing quote. as we are on a budget.

A.

Several property lawyers offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes. Often extra charges are often hiding in the solicitor's terms. These terms are often ignored by excited buyers, eager to get underway. Fees ought to be fair and reasonable.

Q.

What can we do if purchasing a Bethnal Green property within a Tower Hamlets local authority designated conservation area ?

A.

An integral part of the conveyancing process includes the application for searches of Hackney council to determine conservation area status and formal approval for any alterations. If no necessary permissions be available your solicitor will recommend all options like getting covered by an indemnity policy or getting retrospective approval.

Q.

For a lender, we have chosen Northern Rock - what do we need to check?

A.

Over the last two years, some lenders have limited the firms who can act for them. For purchasers, this can result in significantly

greater legal costs. Homeward Legal, though, are able to act for many lenders in the UK, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

How many weeks does it take my conveyancer to handle the legal process on a flat in a sixties home we are purchasing?

A.

The process can take anywhere from a month to 12 weeks, which can be hampered by any number of things, such as the efficiency of the seller's conveyancing solicitor, or whether there are any linked sales. Homeward Legal's lawyers are exceptionally focused on communication you moving home in as short a time as we possibly can.

Q.

How do we protect against being gazumped?

A.

The convention of rejecting a previously accepted offer when a better offer is made by a second buyer is called gazumping. Although gazumping is less common in a declining market, there will always be a risk. The first step in reducing the chance that gazumping will effect you is to instruct a proactive solicitor as soon as you can.

Q.

How early should we arrange a conveyancer?

A.

In the vast majority of cases, the sooner you instruct a solicitor, the better. The legal work can then start straight away. A number of sources suggest waiting before instruction until an offer is accepted, but you will then be at a serious disadvantage in the event of a contract race, or buyer eager to move quickly.

Q.

Do we need a chancel search if we are intending to purchase in the parish of Tottenham?

A.

The conveyancing solicitor is likely to recommend a chancel search, irrespective of the parish where the house being bought is located. Through some church councils have taken the decision to impose chancel repairs on the current owners, there is no guarantee that a parish where chancel repair fees have not been paid previously will not be so in future. For property in the parish of Tottenham, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

How much will my searches cost?

A.

With a Homeward Legal conveyancing solicitor, clients are expected to pay at most £249 for a standard bundle of searches. The most frequently ordered searches include an environmental search and a mining search.
