Q.

How can we ensure our cheap quote is fixed? I am looking for a fixed rate conveyancing quote in Chatteris.

A.

Lack of clarity over this topic catches out many buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many firms claim to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes, however additional charges can inflate the solicitor's invoice. Any fees listed in the small print should be fair and reasonable. A quote should, in addition, define any disbursements.Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

I plan to purchase a home in the parish of Westley Waterless. Will a chancel search be necessary?

A.

A conveyancing solicitor is likely to recommend that a chancel search is ordered. Chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on current owners of a building where Parochial Church Councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners.

Q.

For our lender, we have chosen Northern Rock - is there anything we need to be aware of?

A.

Buyers in Chatteris should be aware that, over the last two years, some lenders are now reducing their 'solicitor panel'. This can mean higher legal costs for home buyers. Homeward Legal, however, are able to act on behalf of all major mortgage lenders to keep legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

Can we hold off paying out for stamp duty on a residential property?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) commonly must be paid for purchases valued at over £125,000. Stamp duty reduction scheme should not be considered when purchasing in

Chatteris, because these schemes are expensive and , if the scheme fails, you may be charged a penalty of up to 100% of the stamp duty amount owed.

Q.

I am planning on buying a 1940s maisonette in the boundary of conservation areas. How do we find details in regards to the current state of upkeep of the conservation area?

A.

Local conservation areas are created by Fenland who preserve things like building materials to derelict buildings. English Heritage, a government body, have created records of the state of repair of conservation areas.

Q.

The estate agent has named the property lawyer. Will it be cheaper to instruct them?

A.

It is not uncommon for agents to refer one or more conveyancing firms. These referrals should be compared against alternatives, as an agent may choose the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.

Q.

Unexpected financial circumstances dictate that we need to make haste and complete on the conveyancing on our home within 6 weeks, do you any auction specialist fast solicitors in Chatteris ?

A.

Homeward Legal has a speed focused style to fulfilling legal process for customers as quickly as possible. Our solicitors method is different as we have invested in advanced practice management systems .

Importantly , we give you a firm practiced at communicate through all parts of the buyer and seller chain .

Q.

What does the Chatteris conveyancing lawyer do when the house we are planning to buy is inside a registered conservation area and has unbecoming removal of chimney stacks added?

A.

Fenland local authority enquiries carried out by your Chatteris property lawyer as part of the conveyancing should determine whether the property is in a conservation area and any evidence of consent for changes to the property will be required. If no appropriate permissions be in evidence your solicitor will recommend all options for example requesting an indemnity insurance policy or getting retrospective permission from the planning authority.
