Q.

We are looking for a lawyer that offers cheap conveyancing in Costessey. What do we need to check for?

A.

Many law firms offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra costs may be added into small print. Any additional charges which are listed in terms of engagement should be reasonable and clear. Our online calculator will create an accurate quote for your buy.

Q.

What will conveyancing searches cost?

A.

The cost of searches on a purchase in Costessey can vary. Searches are paid to a third party, and will not be included in your solicitor's fees.

Q.

The Woolwich is our lender - what will we need to know?

A.

Traditionally, solicitors could carry out mortgage-related work for most lenders. Some lenders have decreased the number of firms on their approved panel, which may result in greater legal costs for purchasers. Homeward Legal, fortunately, can act on behalf of the majority of UK mortgage lenders.

Q.

How long should it take for my designated conveyancing solicitor to finish all of the conveyancing work for the lower floor of Edwardian home we hope to buy?

Getting contracts exchanged can take anywhere between one month and 3 months, which can be hampered by any number of factors e.g. the efficiency of the vendor's conveyancing solicitor, or the turnaround of searches.

Q.

If we plan to buy in the parish of Catton, are we advised to get a chancel search?

A.

Whichever Costessey parish you are purchasing in, a solicitor responsible for your move may suggest a chancel search. In Costessey's much older areas, chancel repair dues can be collected on owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils may have not done so in the past. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.

Q.

Which lenders in Costessey do you work with?

A.

The Homeward Legal partnership work with the majority of lenders financing Costessey homebuyers. Costessey lenders and mortgage specialists include Go Direct (UK) Ltd, 60A West End, Costessey, Norwich, NR8 5AJ.

Q.

Costessey conveyancers order formal property conveyancing searches if instructed by a property purchaser - what particular ones?

A.

When obtaining a mortgage the lender will expect the following Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search (Con29DW) and Environmental,, and possibly area-specific searches, like a Company Searches.

Q.

When in the conveyancing process do I need to speak to a conveyancing solicitor in Costessey?

A.

If you choose a firm with 'no move, no fee' protection, the sooner the better, as the legal work can start very early in the process. Instructing your solicitor earlier for a purchase may mean that you will the details of your Costessey solicitor ready when you make an offer, or, if you are selling a property, paperwork can be prepared, even before a buyer is found.
