Q.

We need a lawyer that offers cheap conveyancing. What should we check?

A.

This catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors offer 'the cheapest conveyancing', however extra fees are frequently hidden in the terms of engagement, left unregarded by busy buyers Any additional charges which are listed in the small print should be reasonable and clear. They only apply in cases where your lawyer is required to complete unexpected extra work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Applicable disbursements ought to be listed on the conveyancing quote. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.

May our legal charges include any hidden charges?

A.

No. Homeward Legal will not charge any hidden fees. You should be aware that some solicitors' firms will give a low estimate, not an accurate quote, which they will not be bound to.

Q.

How long on average should I expect it to take my designated property solicitor to conclude the conveyancing formalities on a maisonette in a house we want to buy in Dronfield?

A.

The process can take anywhere between one month and 12 weeks, which can depend on a number of issues, like the efficiency of the vendors lawyer, or renegotiations.

Q.

Can we avoid paying for stamp duty to the Revenue?

A.

SDLT must be paid for residential property over 125,000 pounds. Stamp duty mitigation is not advised when buying in Dronfield. These schemes are often uneconomical and can be very unlikely to succeed. There have been a small number of official schemes, such as for first-time buyers.

Q.

Handling the legal work without the assistance of a property lawyer in Dronfield looks to be possible when buying a house. Would it be foolish ?

A.

In theory there is absolutely no argument why a buyer cannot decide to engage in the legal work without assistance. The truth is however that a property solicitor takes care of a large number of assignments including chasing mortgage offer and apportioning service charges most of which need a qualified solicitor.

Q.

When you are buying a property next to a rectory manor in Dronfield, is it advisable that I get a chancel liability search?

A.

Owners of property in Dronfield may be subject to chancel repair liability. Several sources are used to determine liability in Dronfield, including local maps. Dronfield church properties where a chancel search may be appropriate include St John Baptist.

Q.

Do your solicitors carry out the conveyancing for auction properties in Dronfield?

A.

Yes - Our company is highly experienced with bidders at auction. Lawyers consistently advise bidders to select an auction experienced lawyer before the date of the auction to allow adequate time for a full investigation of the property's legal title. Following the property auction your selected conveyancing lawyer is totally ready for concluding the conveyancing in a month as required by the auction conditions.

Q.

For our lender, we have chosen Holmesdale Building Society, what do we need to consider?

A.

Some lenders are now reducing the size of their 'solicitor panel', potentially creating increased conveyancing costs for house purchasers. Homeward Legal will act for most lenders.
