Q.

Are additional fees applied? We are looking for a discount conveyancing quote in Castleford.

A.

Many homeowners seeking discount conveyancing are caught out by the lure of very low conveyancing rates, and many solicitors promote so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however extra fees may increase the solicitor's invoice. Additional costs ought to be fair.

Unforeseeable circumstances mean we ideally want to complete on the sale of a leasehold apartment as quickly as possible, do you any particularly fast solicitors in Castleford ?

We have implemented modern IT and conveyancing case management systems . We always give sellers a dedicated solicitor incentivised to communicate with the entire property chain (line of buyers and sellers) like other buyers and sellers, to get a quick sale.

Q.

Is there something we can do to avoid paying out for SDLT rates?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) must be paid on houses priced at over £125,000. Stamp duty mitigation scheme is not recommended for purchases in Castleford, as such schemes are highly expensive and unreliable.

A.

Our CQS solicitors commonly take instructions from buyers and sellers at auction. Solicitors typically inform bidders to appoint a residential property conveyancing lawyer well in advance of the property auction date for a detailed investigation of the property's legal title.

Post property auction the conveyancing solicitor will be focused on concluding the legal side of things in as short a time frame as typically required .

Q.

Q.

If we are intending to buy near Castleford, in the parish of Royston, do we need a chancel search?

A.

Your Castleford conveyancing solicitor may suggest that a chancel search is taken out. In Castleford's much older areas, chancel repair can be imposed on new owners of a property where parish councils may have spared previous owners or tenants. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

How do I find out if a property is in a conservation area?

A.

Locales deemed to be of historic or architectural significance, such as 19th century suburbs, will be designated as conservation areas. A solicitor will discuss the relevant responsibilities and offer more information.

Q.

We are planning to buy with Coventry Building Society, what do I need to check?

A.

Recently, a number of lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel'. This can mean higher legal costs for property purchasers. Homeward Legal, however, will act on behalf of all large UK mortgage lenders so that you will not be required to pay the lender's costs.
