Q.

What are the best rates for conveyancing for a 124,000 home?

A.

Many online and high street firms promote 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however extra costs are often hiding in the solicitor's terms. These terms are often ignored by excited homeowners, eager to get underway. Any charges which are listed in your solicitor's terms should be fair and clearly defined. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Should I get a surveying expert to review the Cambridgeshire property purchase?

A.

We suggest that you order a survey when buying in Cambridgeshire. Many concerns can negatively affect a property, which include blocked drains or cracks around door frames.

Q.

Can you suggest how I avoid paying SDLT?

A.

Homeward Legal do not advise buyers risk any stamp duty mitigation. These schemes are expensive and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later imposing penalties and investigating all your tax matters. There have been a small number of government initiatives, however, such as relief for buyers in 'disadvantaged areas'. Your solicitor will advise as to your eligibility.

Q.

How much will my conveyancing searches on average cost?

A.

With a Homeward Legal conveyancing solicitor, clients buying a property charged at a maximum £249 for searches. Searches are charged 'at cost'.

Q.

Our mortgage lender is Northern Rock, is there anything I need to be aware of?

A.

Some lenders have limited the firms who can act for them. For buyers, this can result in significantly higher conveyancing costs. We can act for many lenders.

Q.

What causes Cambridgeshire purchase conveyancing to require so much time and effort? We had several delays with our previous solicitor.

A.

The legal work required to buy or sell a property could experience delays even where there is no chain. The reasons may be out of the solicitor's control. We seek to reduce their consequences by using fast search providers.

Q.

Will a conveyancer in Cambridgeshire obtain personal or official searches on my property purchase?

A.

Your conveyancer will inform you regarding the ideal route, depending on factors like lender requirements. If personal searches are used the conveyancer might look for a local search company e.g ANGLIAN WATER SERVICES LTD TRADING AS GEODESYS, OSPREY HOUSE, 1 PERCY ROAD, HUNTINGDON, CAMBS, PE29 6SZ Tel: 01480 323889.

Q.

If we are buying in Cambridgeshire on the same road as parsonage land, do you advise that we get a chancel search?

A.

Where land in Cambridgeshire was once owned by a lay-rector, new owners of that property may be obliged to subsidise repairs to local churches. As a consequence of a recent Act, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. The solicitor acting on your behalf will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate.
