Q.

How do I find fixed rate conveyancing?

A.

Various firms promote so-called cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately additional charges may inflate the final invoice. Any additional costs needs to be fair. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

I would like to know which Crawley lenders you work with. Which panels are you on?

A.

Most lenders in Crawley are on our Crawley solicitors' panel. Local mortgage lenders and brokers include Mortgage, 1 Sherwood Walk, Crawley, RH10 6NQ, Mortgage Advice Bureau, 44 High St, Crawley, RH10 1BW, and Investwise Mortgages - Mortgage & Life Assurance Advice Crawley, 43/43/Hillmead, Crawley, RH11 8RP.

Q.

We are buying with National Westminster Bank - what will we need to check?

A.

Buyers should consider that, in some cases, lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel', resulting in increased conveyancing costs for home buyers if their conveyancing solicitor cannot act for the lender. We are able to act on behalf of most mortgage lenders.

Q.

What will the council tax cost me for a investment Band G flat in Crawley?

A.

The pertinent band should usually be set out in the title report, as well as by the governing local authority Up-to-date rates for homes in Crawley are set out online at the Crawley local authority site. At the time of authoring on 23 June 2012 the rates are:

  • Band A - £992.00
  • Band B - £1,158.00
  • Band C - £1,323.00
  • Band D - £1,488.00
  • Band E - £1,819.00
  • Band F - £2,150.00
  • Band G - £2,480.00
  • Band H - £2,976.00

Q.

The estate agent we are using in Oxford has suggested the solicitors firm who they generally use. Will it be more cost-effective to instruct this firm?

A.

Both agents and mortgage brokers will refer one or more conveyancing firms, however, such referrals should be compared to other online or local firms, as an agent may decide to recommend the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the law firm with the best reputation.

Q.

Please state how to get out of paying stamp duty tax?

A.

Homeward Legal do not recommend clients expose their finances to any form of stamp duty mitigation scheme. Such schemes are expensive and unreliable.

Q.

Is it advisable to get a chancel search if my family are buying in Crawley on the same street as parsonage land?

A.

In Crawley, where land was once owned by a lay rectors, new owners of that property may be obliged to contribute towards the cost of maintenance of a church in the area. Indemnity policies can be arranged if chancel liability is likely to be enforced. Crawley church lands include Holy Trinity, St Elizabeth, St John the Baptist and St Mary.

Q.

The home being bought is on a brownfield land. What should we do regarding vanadium (V) topsoil contamination?

A.

Given the history of industry and agriculture in parts of Crawley, soil contamination cannot be totally avoided. Other sources of contaminated land include ammonia and groundwater contaminants like detergents.
