Q.

Could the property legal fees provided in your quote incorporate any additional costs?

Homeward Legal's solicitors will never charge any hidden extra fees. Be aware that some solicitors only estimate conveyancing costs, which could be totally different from your final invoice. At Homeward Legal, what you see is what you get with our quotes, which are clearly laid out and make the distinction obvious between the fixed fee and disbursements. For the best and clearest quote, why not try our quote calculator? Or, if you want to talk to someone, you could call our expert team on 0800 038 6699.

Q.

We are buying a chapel in Kilham, so is a chancel search needed?

Your lawyer could recommend that a chancel search be ordered, regardless of the parish in which the home being purchased is located. In older areas of Beverley, in particular, chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on the owners of a home where church councils may have spared previous owners or tenants. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution. Your solicitor will be able to advise you on the appropriate course of action to take.

Q.

We are intending to buy a 1950s investment property within a conservation area. Where can we find data in relation to the standard of upkeep of the conservation area?

English Heritage, a government body, has assembled a list of the state of conservation areas. Conservation areas in Beverley are set up by the local Kingston-upon-Hull or the East Riding planning authorities, who preside over everything from what can be developed at the property to the deterrence of modern telephone boxes.

Q.

The internet has several books on the subject of doing the legal work yourself, so do I actually have to use a property lawyer in Beverley?

If you want to do so, you can take care of the legal and technical work without external help from a solicitor in Beverley. All solicitors’ practices would argue that this is a dangerous approach as do-it-yourself conveyancers might come a cropper, and you won’t have the applicable indemnity insurance which every solicitors’ firm is required to carry. Try our quote calculator or call our waiting team on 0800 038 6699 for your fixed-fee quote.

Q.

Do I need a local property surveyor to check for issues affecting our home purchase in Beverley?

Homeward Legal strongly advise that all purchasers arrange a home-buyer survey when planning to buy in Beverley or anywhere else in England and Wales. A wide range of issues can negatively affect a property, such as poor ventilation, or ineffective drainage. Such issues will not be considered during the conveyancing work itself.

Q.

Unforeseeable personal circumstances dictate that we need to complete on the conveyancing process on our refurbished maisonette in Beverley as soon as possible. Do Homeward Legal employ fast solicitors?

We always introduce you to conveyancing property lawyers who are selected because they attempt to push from the start to the end of the buyer and seller chain. Furthermore, Homeward Legal’s carefully selected solicitors are picked because they implement advanced fast-response technology to complete on your sale in the shortest time. Give our experts a call on 0800 038 6699 for your fixed-fee quote.

Q.

How will a conveyancer report back on the potential risk of flooding in Beverley?

A critical part of the legal process involves a lawyer applying for environmental searches for your property. These will provide you with the detail regarding the risk of flooding in Beverley. You might be advised by your solicitor to take out a more in-depth flood-risk search if the initial data indicates a significant level risk.

Q.

Which Beverley mortgage lenders do you work with?

Of lenders with branches in or near Beverley, we work with all the major companies, who are approved by the Council of Mortgage Lenders. This means that we can represent their legal needs without them passing on their costs to you. Lenders and mortgage specialists in Beverley include:

Q.

Does the report on title prepared by the Beverley property solicitor detail the rates of the council tax for a townhouse before completion?

A.

The property lawyer will contact the council to find out the current council tax band and rates, which should then be written in the conveyancing report on title. Correct charges for residents of Beverley are published on the council site.

Q.

We are buying a chapel in Kilham. Is a chancel search specified?

A.

The lawyer could recommend a chancel search, regardless of the parish in which the home being purchased is located. In older areas of Beverley, chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on the owners of a home where church councils may have spared previous owners or tenants. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.

Q.

Should we get a chancel search? I am purchasing a property in Beverley.

A.

Some owners in Beverley can be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance of a local church. Following a change in the law, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. A conveyancing solicitor will be able to advise further. Beverley ecclesiastical properties include Minster, St Mary and St Nicholas.

Q.

What actual property will my Beverley property solicitor conduct when buying a Beverley property?

A.

The normal conveyancing protocol is to obtain the following Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environmental and, depending on certain criteria, area-specific searches e.g. a Chancel check Search.

Q.

How is Beverley contaminated land identified?

A.

Many of contaminants may spoil land, and an environmental search will reveal the extent to which a specific plot of land could be affected by contaminants in Beverley such as other land contamination. Land/ Premises At, Hornsea Road, East Yorkshire, HU17 5NJ is one such potential cause of local contamination.

Q.

We are intending to buy a 1950s investment property within a conservation area. Where does one find data in relation to the standard of upkeep of the conservation area?

A.

English Heritage, a government body, have assembled a list of the state of conservation areas.

Conservation areas in Beverley are set up by the local Kingston upon Hull planning authority, who preside over everything from what can be developed to the deterrence of modern telephone boxes.

Q.

Is your panel of solicitors able to move fast on the conveyancing of auction properties in Beverley?

A.

Yes - The legal team deal with auctions throughout the UK and often work for sellers at auction. Our niche auction team of solicitors and conveyancers have previously worked for numerous buyers and sellers at national and local residential property auctions that include Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London, Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.

Sensible purchasers always instruct a Beverley firm as soon as possible so there is time for a detailed review of the auction legal pack prior to the auction day itself. Thereafter, following the property auction your experienced lawyer is completely able to concentrate on concluding the conveyancing within the limited time as conventionally required by the conditions of sale.
