Conveyancing In Derbyshire Q & A's


How long does it take to move house?

Those new to buying property are often surprised by how long the process can take from start to finish. There are several factors that come into play when determining how long your transaction will take from having your offer accepted to moving into your new home: The number of people involved in the chain (the shorter it is, the easier to manage and therefore shorter in duration potentially), problems with one or more buyers in the chain getting a mortgage offer, communication, management and many others.

The greatest time that needs to be set aside is for the conveyancing, which is the complex legal process of transferring ownership of the property from seller to buyer, replicated along the entire chain. Typically, the conveyancing can take an average of between eight and twelve weeks to complete, so, in reality, you should be thinking in terms of months.

However, if you appoint a results-focused and proactive solicitor, who will do everything possible to reduce the length of time, including talking to everyone involved in the chain, pushing for swift return of forms and documentation, and using modern technology to drive the process forward, you will stand a better chance of the conveyancing being a lot shorter. And the earlier you appoint them, the quicker they can get started on your transaction.

Looking for great conveyancing where our solicitors work hard to deliver your completion as early as possible? Call Homeward Legal on 0800 038 6699 to find out how low our fees are.

I’ve lost my gas/electrical certificates; will that stop me moving?

There is no legal imperative for you to provide either the gas or electrical safety certificates as the seller; you are required to provide a gas safety certificate on an annual basis, however, if you are planning on letting the property out. The Institution of Electrical Engineers recommends that an electrical certificate be updated at least every ten years or when the property is transferred to a new owner (every 5 years if you are letting the property out).

However, this usually means that this is the responsibility of the buyer with the onus on organising an inspection for a new certificate falling on them.

Homeward Legal offers competitive, fixed-fee quotes, protected by our 'No Completion, No Fee' guarantee. Try our online quote calculator or call our team on 0800 038 6699 to see what we mean.

We are purchasing with National Westminster Bank, is there anything we need to know?

Buyers should consider that a small number of lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel', which may result in increased legal costs for buyers. We are able to act on behalf of all major lenders, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.

I am purchasing a converted maisonette in a conservation area. How do I find data in respect of the standard of repair of the conservation area?

Local conservation areas are specified by Derbyshire Dales who are responsible for things like private spaces to the inhibition of street posts.
