Q.

What are the best conveyancing rates for a £768,000 property?

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many buyers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned, and many firms advertise cheap conveyancing, but extra fees are often hiding in the terms of engagement. Busy, stressed buyers ignore these terms at their peril. Extra costs should 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.

I am selling in Clifton, and have had a conveyancing quote from you. Will I end up paying any extra fees?

A.

No. Homeward Legal never hide any hidden extra fees under any circumstances.

Q.

Do we need a chancel search if we are intending to buy in the parish of Cold Ashton, near Clifton?

A.

Regardless of the Clifton parish in which you are purchasing, the property lawyer should confirm that a chancel search be taken out. In Clifton's much older areas, chancel repair may be apportioned on owners of a house where parish councils have previously chosen not to do so. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.

Q.

We are on a short deadline, needing ensure fast conveyancing, how can we speed things up?

A.

As is often argued, fast conveyancing is the key to instruct a experienced lawyer. There are numerous things you, as the purchaser, could do, including, completing all forms as soon as possible, getting your mortgage offer in place and contacting your lawyer regularly.

Q.

What causes conveyancing for a Clifton property purchase to go on for so long?

A.

The conveyancing process can potentially be delayed, we, however, strive to curtail their effect where feasible by driving the sale or purchase forward. Reasons for delay may include slow solicitors acting for the other side.

Q.

What does 'fixtures and fittings' mean?

A.

Purchasers are often frustrated by confusion regarding fixtures and fittings. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction, and which can make the completion of a fixtures and fitting form necessary.

Q.

Can you suggest how I bypass paying SDLT?

A.

Stamp duty is generally due on property purchases valued at over £125,000. Homeward Legal do not recommend any form of stamp duty scheme. These schemes are highly expensive and very risky. There have been a number of government initiatives, however, such as relief for buyers in 'disadvantaged areas'.

Q.

Does your firm advise on the legal conveyancing of auction properties in Clifton?

A.

Our firm is very capable working with buyers and sellers at auction. Homeward Legals panel of conveyancing lawyers have previously worked for numerous buyers at regional auctions including Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London, Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.

Experienced auction buyers always formally instruct a conveyancing lawyer as early as possible to allow sufficient time for an investigation of the auction legal papers well in advance of the day of the auction. Following the auction your appointed property lawyer is utterly geared up to speedily completing the legal work inside a as tight time frame as conventionally required .
