Q.

What do you charge for the legal fees on a £221k property? We need fixed rate Dunnington conveyancing.

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this topic catches out many home owners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many solicitors advertise theoretically cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately extra fees are often hiding in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Busy, stressed home owners ignore these terms at their peril. Extra fees found in the terms should be fair and clearly defined. Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

What makes conveyancing legal work to require so much time and effort?

A.

The conveyancing process could suffer setbacks, we, however, know how stressful these delays can be and aim to minimise the impact of these delays whenever we can do so by driving the sale or purchase forward.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Dunnington?

A.

Dunnington is located in York City Council, Library Square, York, Yorkshire, YO1 7DU, phone: 01904 551 550

Q.

Our mortgage lender is Precise Mortgages - what will we need to be aware of?

A.

Over the last two years, some lenders are now reducing the size of their 'solicitor panel', potentially creating increased legal costs for house purchasers. We, however, will act for the vast majority of CML-approved lenders, ensuring that an additional solicitor will not be required to act for your lender.

Q.

I am aiming to purchase a home, is it recommended that searches are undertaken?

A.

Searches are standard enquiries carried out on behalf of the party intending to buy the property. They will not be a substitute for a building survey.

Q.

Do I need to get a chancel search? I am purchasing a house in Dunnington.

A.

Owners of property neighbouring a church in the area are expected to subsidise repairs, as a result of chancel repair liability. A chancel search addresses if such a liability exists. Liability is more common in some parts of the country. Churches in this area which may give rise to chancel liability include St Nicholas and St Nicholas.

Q.

How long on average should it take my designated conveyancer to handle all of the legal work on an apartment in a Victorian building we are purchasing?

A.

The process can take anywhere from a month to twelve weeks, which can be hampered by various things, such as the efficiency of the vendor's conveyancing solicitor, or the communication, with managing agents.

Q.

What does the Dunnington conveyancing solicitor recommend if the maisonette we hope to purchase is located in a York conservation area and turns out to have unsuitable new windows fitted?

A.

York local authority LLC1 searches conducted by the solicitor will ascertain if the property is in a designated conservation area and any evidence of the appropriate permissions for additions to the property will be requested.
