Q.

How do I find the best conveyancing rates for a £517,000 house?

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many homeowners, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned. Many solicitors promote theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional fees will be included in the terms. Excited homeowners, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Applicable disbursements ought to be listed on your conveyancing quote Extra charges which are listed in the terms ought to be fair and reasonable. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

For fast conveyancing to buy a £975k house, what should we do?

A.

Crucial to faster conveyancing is to employing a proactive solicitor. When choosing a solicitor, consider these questions: Did you experience any delays when requesting a quote? Which communication methods do they use? Days can be wasted waiting for letters in the post which could be emailed or faxed. Do they work on a 'no sale, no fee' basis?

Q.

In about 6 weeks we are hoping to move out of our terraced house on the outskirts of Chapeltown to a flat in Bessacarr . What is the right point to choose a removal company?

A.

We usually encourage home sellers put off booking a removals company until the point where contracts have exchanged because it is likely that a definitive move date wont have been confirmed.

Typically removals firms might charge a rearrangement fee . Speak to Andrews Removals & Storage Ltd, Unit 1 Butterthwaite Business Park Butterthwaite La, Ecclesfield, Sheffield, S35 9WA Call: 01302 797016 or Apex, Unit 3 Butterthwaite La, Ecclesfield, Sheffield, S35 9WA Telephone: 0114 245 0110.

Q.

For the purchase, my mortgage lender, we have chosen Tesco mortgages - is there anything we need to be aware of?

A.

Some lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel, resulting in increased legal costs for buyers if a second chosen solicitor is required by their lender. Homeward Legal, however, will act on behalf of the vast majority of CML-approved lenders.

Q.

What will the council tax cost me on a Thirties Band D flat in Chapeltown?

A.

  • Band A - £991.00

Q.

At what point should we instruct a solicitor to handle our purchase?

A.

Whether you are buying or selling in Chapeltown, the sooner you instruct a solicitor, the better, as conveyancing involves several tasks which may be performed immediately. Early instruction of a solicitor can reduce any chance of your purchase or sale stalling.

Q.

Would ordering a Homebuyer Report be sensible when purchasing a property, irrespective of its condition?

A.

We strongly recommend that you instruct a surveyor. There are a wide range of problems which can negatively affect a property, that will not be addressed during the conveyancing process, including flat roof leaks and poor drainage.

Q.

We are buying a maisonette in a designated Chapeltown conservation area, how do I locate more details in regards to the standard of upkeep of the conservation area?

A.

English Heritage administer records of the state of conservation areas in Chapeltown and across England. Conservation areas are nominated by the local authority (Sheffield) who administer everything from paths to the avoidance of poorly maintained roads.
