Q.

I am looking for discount conveyancing in Buxton. Will we get a quote or and estimate?

A.

Both high-street and online firms claim to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra fees may be added into the terms. This small print is often not read by sellers and buyers in a hurry. Extra costs listed in terms and conditions needs to be reasonable and only come into force where your solicitor must perform additional tasks , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Applicable disbursements ought to be defined on the quote. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

When in the conveyancing process do we need to get a conveyancing solicitor to act for us?

A.

If you use a conveyancing solicitor offering a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, as soon as possible, as conveyancing involves several tasks that may be performed straight away. Early instruction of a solicitor to act on your Buxton sale or purchase for a purchase may mean that your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed, or, if you are selling a property, documents can be prepared earlier, considerably accelerating the whole process.

Q.

We are buying a restored chapel in the parish of Sawley. Will we need a chancel search?

A.

Your Buxton conveyancing solicitor may suggest a chancel search. In Buxton's much older areas, chancel repair can be imposed on current owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils may have spared previous owners or tenants. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.

Q.

What will the council tax cost for a investment Band H maisonette in Buxton?

A.

Your relevant band should normally be set out in the conveyancing report on title along with the local council. The latest council tax charges for properties in Buxton are set out in detail on the High Peak council site. Currently (13 October 2012) band rates are:

  • Band A - £1,000.00
  • Band B - £1,167.00
  • Band C - £1,333.00
  • Band D - £1,500.00
  • Band E - £1,833.00
  • Band F - £2,167.00
  • Band G - £2,500.00

Q.

Why does the conveyancing process take such a long time?

A.

The legal work required to buy or sell a home can potentially be delayed, Homeward Legal, however, aim to reduce the cost of these delays wherever a difference can be made. Reasons for delay may include difficulties with mortgage finance.

Q.

Sudden personal circumstances mean we need to complete on the legal process our flat in a short time frame, do Homeward Legal work with any fast solicitors in Buxton ?

A.

Homeward Legal takes a proactive approach to fulfilling conveyancing work as quickly as possible.

Q.

Which factors are key to arrange fast conveyancing?

A.

As is often reported, contacting a proactive, diligent property lawyer is the key to fast conveyancing. Beyond that, there are various jobs you can do to speed up your conveyancing. These include:

  • calling or emailing the property lawyer, and chase them if you suspect any delays
  • promptly answering your property lawyer's questions (by email if possible)
  • getting your mortgage offer in place

Q.

We are going to purchase with Chelsea Building Society, what do I need to know?
