Q.

I need to find a cheap Burford solicitor to sell a residence. What do we need to consider?

A.

Many property lawyers promote so-called cheap conveyancing. Often additional fees are often hiding in the small print. A conveyancing quote should list any disbursements.

Q.

Will we be able to get our skates on and exchange contracts on the legal work on a home inside 2 months, do you use fast Burford conveyancing solicitors ?

A.

Homeward Legal has a highly active style to finishing the necessary legal work for movers.

We always introduce you to CQS solicitors that are highly proactive and will always communicate through all parts of the buyer and seller chain . Also our CQS solicitors are specifically chosen as they all employ new integrated and technology systems to exchange on the sale of your property fast.

Q.

What is the council tax on a Sixties terraced Band H dwelling in Burford?

A.

You should be told about your house's council tax band within the conveyancing report on title.

Council tax charges for homes in Burford are published at the West Oxfordshire council website. On 21 August 2012 the different rates are:

  • Band A - £971.00
    >
  • Band B - £1,133.00
  • Band C - £1,295.00
  • Band D - £1,457.00
  • Band E - £1,781.00
  • Band F - £2,104.00
  • Band G - £2,428.00
  • Band H - £2,914.00

Q.

We are purchasing a new build property. Is it important that conveyancing searches are done?

A.

Conveyancing searches are a typical collection of enquiries requested by the conveyancing solicitor, such as a chancel search. Conveyancing searches cover solely the legal aspects of the purchase.

Q.

Do fixtures and fittings include things like radiators?

A.

Mainly, fixtures are permanently fixed to floors, walls and ceilings and fixtures are easier to detach or remove. Your solicitor will request the agreement of a fixtures and fittings form to avoid such disputes, stating what is included with the sale.

Q.

Is a Homebuyer Report required if we are purchasing property in Burford?

A.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors heavily advise that all buyers in Burford book a building survey. Numerous defects will impact a property, for example poor ventilation and ground movement. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.

Q.

My agent has named a law firm that they have used before. Do I need to instruct this firm?

A.

The Brigg agent can influence a conveyancing solicitor they refer many clients to, and can therefore exert pressure on a solicitor to wrap up the process as soon as possible. These referrals must be carefully considered, as an agent may choose the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.

Q.

How do I stop getting gazumped?

A.

The custom of choosing to reject a previously accepted offer on a purchase when a better offer is made by a second buyer is called gazumping. There is almost always a chance of gazumping. Instructing your solicitor as soon as you can should help to mitigate this risk.
