How much does the fee for our searches be?
With Homeward Legal, clients buying a property expected to pay no more than £249 for a standard bundle of searches.
What are searches, and how do they differ from a survey?
Searches are a set of enquiries carried out by your surveyor to various authorities such as the local council, HM Land Registry, etc., and focuses on the impact of the local area on your potential enjoyment of living at the property, while a survey (a HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey) is focused on the structural integrity of the home and its permanent outbuildings and constructions.
While each may throw up similar issues (such as missing planning consents or boundary issues), they are very different and achieve very different purposes.
Our solicitors at Homeward Legal are willing and happy to explain anything you don't understand in the conveyancing, because you need to know what you're getting for our competitively-priced fixed fee. Call our team on 0800 038 6699.

What’s the difference between exchange of contracts and completion?
When you exchange contracts, this means that you are agreeing to all the terms drawn up within the contract made between you on one side of the transaction, and the opposite party on the other side. It is from this point that you are legally obliged to go through with the transaction (unless you want to be subject to financial and/or legal penalties).
The completion of contracts is the point where you officially take over ownership of the property, receive the keys and can move in. All monies are transferred between the various parties and the conveyancing solicitor contacts the Land Registry to register the change of ownership to you.

We are buying a residence in the parish of Blyford. Do we need a chancel search?
Whichever Bucklesham parish in which you are buying, a solicitor might recommend a chancel search. Although some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have exercised their right to charge chancel repairs on current owners of lay rectorships, it is not possible to be certain that a parish where dues have not recently been paid will continue to be free from liability. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.
