In a few weeks I am expecting to move out of our terraced house in Cowes to our next flat in Freshwater what is the best point to instruct a home removal company?
Most conveyancers usually suggest that home buyers and sellers wait until such time as formal exchange of contracts because in all probability a final home moving date wont have been settled. Routinely home removals companies charge a re booking charge . For a local Isle Of Wight company Iowight Van Man, 235 Arctic Rd, Cowes, PO31 7PJ on 07900 973705.
Our agent has referred a lawyer. Will it be cheaper to instruct this firm?
An agent may suggest a conveyancer. These referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, as the agent may recommend the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.
What makes sale conveyancing to have so many delays?
The conveyancing process will occasionally be subject to numerous interruptions or delays. We understand how unnecessarily stressful these delays can be and aim to lessen the effect of these delays by using fast search providers. Common delays include waiting for responses from third parties.
What’s the difference between exchange of contracts and completion?
When you exchange contracts, this means that you are agreeing to all the terms drawn up within the contract made between you on one side of the transaction, and the opposite party on the other side. It is from this point that you are legally obliged to go through with the transaction (unless you want to be subject to financial and/or legal penalties).
The completion of contracts is the point where you officially take over ownership of the property, receive the keys and can move in. All monies are transferred between the various parties and the conveyancing solicitor contacts the Land Registry to register the change of ownership to you.

Is it hard to sell a property located in a conservation area?
A conservation area is designated and managed by the local authority to ensure the unique nature of the location is maintained by placing restrictions on changes to the buildings, street furniture and green spaces to protect the architectural or historical interest of everything within the conservation area boundary.
Because of this resistance to change, this usually means homes in conservation areas are more attractive to buyers, and, as such, there may be a premium to pay over properties outside such areas. Because of the attraction of such property, they will usually sell well and quickly. However, there will need to be greater checks by the buyer’s solicitor to verify that your property conforms to the conservation area restrictions, which may add extra time to the duration of the conveyancing.
Homeward Legal's solicitors have a great deal of experience working with sales and purchases in conservation areas, so why not give our team a quick call on 0800 038 6699 right now to find out what we can do to help your plans?
