Q.

How do we identify a genuinely cheap fee? We are trying to find a discount conveyancing estimate in Darwen.

A.

Many online and high street firms claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional costs are often hiding in the small print. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Should we get a Darwen house surveyor to check for defects affecting the property we plan to buy?

A.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors suggest that you arrange a home surveyor. Buyers should be aware that there are a range of defects that affect a property, such as failed double glazing and chimney defects.

Q.

Do you have fast solicitors that deal with the conveyancing of auction properties in Darwen?

A.

Our solicitors and licensed conveyancers in Darwen regularly carry out work for buyers and sellers at auction. Lawyers consistently inform purchasers to appoint an affordable lawyer well before the property auction to allow time for an investigation of the legal papers for the lot.

Immediately following the auction your appointed conveyancing solicitor is absolutely focused on concluding the legal side of things inside a as tight time frame as usually required .

Q.

Will the conveyancing have any supplementary hidden costs?

A.

No. Our solicitors do not charge any hidden extra fees for any reason. Buyers and sellers should be aware that some solicitor do not give accurate quotes, only estimates, meaning that your final bill could be much higher.

Q.

Which Darwen lenders do you work with?

A.

The Homeward Legal group have worked with the majority of lenders assisting Darwen homebuyers. Lenders and mortgage specialists in Darwen include Britannia, 22-26 Railway Rd, Darwen, BB3 2RG, Newbroad Ltd, Chapel Cottage, Pickup Bank, Darwen, BB3 3QQ, and Mortgage & Insurance Exchange, 5 Beaumont Way, Darwen, BB3 3SG.

Q.

How much is the council tax on a Sixties semi-detached Band G property in Darwen?

A.

The appropriate council tax band will, more often than not, be identified in the conveyancer's title report along with the governing local authority. The latest tax charges for properties in Darwen are published online at the Blackburn with Darwen council site. Currently on 01 July 2012 band rates are:

  • Band A - £990.00
  • Band B - £1,155.00
  • Band C - £1,320.00
  • Band D - £1,485.00
  • Band E - £1,815.00
  • Band F - £2,145.00
  • Band G - £2,475.00
  • Band H - £2,970.00

Q.

How do I protect my offer from being gazumped?

A.

This arises when a seller accepts one buyer's offer, only to reject it, opting for a higher offer. Though being gazumped is uncommon when property prices are falling, there is still a risk. To reduce the likelihood of being gazumped, consider instructing a solicitor as soon as possible.

Q.

I am taking out a mortgage with Mortgages 1 Ltd - is there anything I need to be aware of?

A.

Some lenders have decreased the number of firms on their approved panel, resulting in greater legal costs for buyers if their conveyancer cannot act for the lender. We will act for many lenders to keep legal costs to a minimum.
