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.

We are interested in purchasing in Chapeltown. Can we find out if the building is in a conservation area?

A.

These areas protect regions recorded as being of historic or architectural significance. The advantages of these restrictions include confidence that property will retain its value, but they may impose liability on a buyer for unauthorised alterations made by previous owners. Your property solicitor will provide more details.

Q.

Would you advise that I get a chancel liability search when we are buying a Chapeltown property by a 13th Century priory?

A.

As a result of chancel repair liability, the owners of property in Chapeltown which was once owned by a 'lay impropriators' can be liable for repairs to a local church. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a property, but insurance is available should an obligation to fund repairs be enforced. Chapeltown ecclesiastical properties include St John the Baptist.

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.

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.

Is Homeward Legal experienced enough to move fast on the conveyancing of residential property auction properties in Chapeltown?

A.

Homeward Legal regularly act for sellers at auction. We invariably tell bidders to formally instruct a SRA regulated property conveyancing lawyer prior to the day of the auction to allow sufficient time for a detailed review of the lot.

Subsequently, immediately after the property auction your experienced conveyancing lawyer will be able to concentrate on finishing the legal side of things within as short a time frame as conventionally required .

Q.

What can a Chapeltown property solicitor do if the property I hope to invest in is inside the boundary of a conservation area and has unauthorised removal of chimney stacks installed?

A.

Your instructed lawyer will always verify if the property is inside a conservation area, and if so, whether any alterations have the appropriate consent from the local planning authority.

Q.

We are intending to buy a rectory in the parish of York St Mary Bishophill junior. Will we need a chancel search?

A.

The solicitor may suggest that a chancel search be ordered. Chancel repair has the potential to be charged on the owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils have previously chosen not to do so. For property in the parish of York St Mary Bishophill junior, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.
