Q.

How do we find a discount conveyancing estimate in Croston?

A.

Numerous solicitors purport to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however additional charges will be included in the terms of engagement. Busy, stressed home owners ignore these terms at their peril. Any disbursements should be included on the quote Any additional charges found in terms and conditions should be reasonable.

Q.

Co-operative Bank is going to be our mortgage lender, what will I need to be aware of?

A.

Some lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel, potentially creating higher legal costs for buyers. Homeward Legal can act for all major mortgage lenders.

Q.

At what point is it appropriate to instruct a conveyancer to act for us?

A.

The short answer is, the earlier in the process you can instruct a solicitor, the better. The legal work can then commence very early in the process. Prompt instruction of a conveyancing firm for a purchase means that your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed, or, if you are selling a property, relevant information can be sourced sooner (this is particularly true for leasehold properties).

Q.

Would you advise looking into how to bypass paying stamp duty tax?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) usually must be paid for property purchases priced at over £125,000. We strongly advise against any stamp duty mitigation

scheme, as such schemes are highly expensive and often likely to fail. There have been certain legal initiatives, such as higher thresholds for first-time buyers. You will be able to confirm your eligibility for any such active initiatives with your solicitor..

Q.

How long on average should it take our conveyancing solicitor to get through the legal formalities on a semi detached Victorian home we are thinking of buying?

A.

The conveyancing process can take anywhere between a month and 12 weeks, which can depend on any number of things for example the efficiency of the seller's conveyancing solicitor, or re-negotiations following a survey.

Q.

Would arranging a property survey be advisable when buying property?

A.

We heavily advise that all purchasers in Croston instruct a property surveyor when you plan to buy in Croston. There are a range of defects that have a negative impact on a property. These include failed double glazing or unsafe chimney circulation. Such issues will not be considered during the conveyancing work itself.

Q.

To complete on our purchase ASAP, how can we aim for a fast completion in Croston?

A.

Many buyers will, correctly, argue that moving faster is key is to employing a proactive, diligent conveyancing solicitor. Consider the following when selecting:

  • What methods of communication do they use? Posting documents can adds days of waiting to a purchase.
  • What methods of communication do they use? Posting documents can adds days of waiting to a purchase.
  • Was there a delay delivering a quote?

Q.

I am going to buy a new build property, do we need searches?

A.

Conveyancing searches are a typical bundle of queries raised by the purchaser's conveyancing solicitor through particular authorities, including a commons registration search, and refer to the legal condition of the property's title.
