Q.

How do I get fixed rate conveyancing in Desborough?

A.

Many law firms promote so-called cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra costs may increase your final invoice.

Q.

I have taken out a quote from you. Will I be invoiced any extra costs after the move?

A.

Unfortunately, hidden fees are not uncommon in conveyancing. Homeward Legal's solicitors will not charge any extra, hidden costs. Some solicitors only estimate conveyancing costs, meaning that you could pay much more when you complete.

Q.

How soon should we speak to a solicitor to act on our sale?

A.

Whether you are buying or selling in Desborough, the sooner you instruct a solicitor, the better. Instructing your solicitor sooner for a purchase may mean that you can shave days off the process by having the details of your instructed solicitor ready when you make an offer, or, if you are selling a property, prior to marketing the property, documents can be prepared to make it potentially more attractive to motivated buyers.

Q.

What kind of investigation about the potential risk of floods around Northamptonshire will my lawyer in Desborough advise us on for a residential property we are intending to purchase?

A solicitor will conduct standard protocol environmental searches that should include Desborough historical flood risk information. In certain cases your Desborough lawyer may suggest an inexpensive additional involved search.

Q.

I plan to buy a home in the parish of Helmdon. Should we get a chancel search?

A.

Whichever Desborough parish in which you are purchasing, a solicitor may suggest a chancel search. Chancel repair may be apportioned on new owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) may have not done so in the past, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Q.

Would getting a survey be a good idea when we are buying a property in Desborough?

A.

It is firmly advised that property purchasers book a property surveyor when purchasing in Desborough. There can be a range of defects that have a negative impact on a property, that will not be addressed during the conveyancing process, which include cracks around door frames.

Q.

I am buying an Edwardian terraced house, do we need property searches?

A.

Searches are standard questions requested by the purchaser's property solicitor. Buyers must consider that, conveyancing searches consider issues and defects relating to the property's legal title.

Q.

Please advise how to defer paying out for stamp duty?

A.

Homeward Legal do not recommend any stamp duty reduction scheme. These schemes are often uneconomical and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later meaning that the full stamp duty amount, interest and additional fines will be imposed. There have been a number of government initiatives, such as relief for buyers in 'disadvantaged areas'.
