Q.

How do I find affordable conveyancing?

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many buyers paying out more than they anticipated in the end. Many solicitors offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional charges are often hiding in the terms of engagement which unwary buyers fail to check. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.

What particular searches should the Catshill conveyancing solicitor do on a Catshill flat?

A.

The common conveyancing procedure will be to obtain the following Local Authority Search, Drainage Search, Environmental and Limestone Search as well as any special local Catshill searches for example Official Search of Whole with Priority (OS1).

Q.

For a fast exchange and completion on the purchase of a £963,000 house, what do we need to do?

A.

Crucial to a fast transaction is to employing a communicative solicitor. There are a number of things you, as the buyer, can also do. These include:

  • arranging your mortgage offer
  • requesting regular updates from your solicitor and keep the pressure on
  • quickly answering your solicitor's questions (by email if possible)

Q.

What steps can we take to get out of paying stamp duty on the home?

A.

Stamp duty scheme should be treated with extreme caution in Catshill, because these schemes are often uneconomical and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later meaning that the full stamp duty amount, interest and additional fines will be imposed.

Q.

Is gazumping common practice in Catshill?

A.

Gazumping occurs when an offer is accepted but then rejected by the house seller, in favour of a higher offer. The will be a chance of getting gazumped in any transaction, because offers are not binding until exchange of contracts. Instructing your conveyancing solicitor as soon as possible is a key first step to reducing this risk.

Q.

Will we need a chancel search if I am intending to buy in the parish of Croome D'Abitot with Pirton?

A.

Regardless of the Catshill parish you are purchasing in, the conveyancing lawyer might recommend that a chancel search is taken out. Through some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have opted to impose chancel repairs on the current owners, it is not possible to be certain that a parish in which lay rectors have not been expected to pay chancel repair dues recently will not be so in future, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.

Q.

May the conveyancing fees conceal any extra fees?

A.

Homeward Legal's solicitors will not charge any additional fees. Know that some solicitors' firms will give a low estimate, not an accurate quote, which could be totally different to your final invoice.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Catshill?

A.

Catshill is located in Bromsgrove District Council, The Council House, Burcot Lane, Bromsgrove, Worcestershire, B60 1AA, phone: 01527 881 288
