Q.

We need to find a discount conveyancing estimate. How do I get a quote?

A.

Many buyers seeking discount conveyancing are caught out by the lure of very low conveyancing rates, and many firms purport to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately additional costs will be included in the small print. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Our lender will be Ulster Bank, is there anything we need to check?

A.

House buyers should be aware that, recently, a number of lenders are now reducing the size of their 'solicitor panel', which may result in increased conveyancing costs for home buyers. Homeward Legal can act for most mortgage lenders, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

Do you work with lenders with offices in Booker?

A.

Most lenders in Booker are on our Booker solicitors' panel. Lenders and mortgage specialists in Booker include Centaur Associates, Acorn House/Straight Bit, Flackwell Heath, High Wycombe, HP10 9LS, Home Counties Mortgage Services, Eskdale/The Common, Holmer Green, High Wycombe, HP15 6TD, and Selvey Gerald, Wellington House/Lower Icknield Way, Longwick,

Princes Risborough, HP27 9RZ. The Booker solicitor handling the work for your sale or purchase will be able to address any specific requests your lender may have.

Q.

What issues assist with getting fast conveyancing?

A.

Many buyers will, correctly, argue that finding a proactive, diligent conveyancing solicitor is key a fast conveyancing transaction. Furthermore, there are a number of tasks you, as the purchaser, could do, such as, encouraging your conveyancing solicitor to carry out searches promptly, answering any queries raised by the conveyancing solicitor as soon as possible and if you intend to get a house survey, doing so as early as you can.

Q.

What are searches?

A.

Conveyancing searches are common pack of queries raised by the property lawyer, such as a chancel liability search. These are unrelated to a building survey and will not give information on the physical condition of the property.

Q.

Our purchase is completing in February. How is stamp duty worked out?

A.

The rate of stamp duty payable is dependent on the valuation. Stamp duty will be £38640 on a £966000 property in Booker (accurate March 2013).

Q.

Is Homeward Legal experienced enough to act quickly on the legal conveyancing of auction properties in Booker?

A.

The legal team work closely with auctioneers and commonly carry out work for buyers at auction. It is sensible for buyers to appoint their chosen conveyancing company asap so there is time for a thorough review of the legal pack prior to the day of bidding.

Post auction day your chosen lawyer is completely able to concentrate on quickly finishing the conveyancing in the usual 28 days as typically required .

Q.

How much is the council tax on a Forties terraced Band E dwelling in Booker?
