Q.

We are trying to find a cheap East of England solicitor to own property. How do I get a quote?

A.

Many firms claim to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra charges may be added into the terms. Applicable disbursements must also be stated on a quote. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

What causes purchase conveyancing work to take weeks to complete?

A.

Conveyancing may potentially be delayed even where there is no chain. In some cases, the delays are beyond a solicitor's power. Homeward Legal understand how frustrating these are and endeavour to minimise the consequences of these delays whenever we can by using fast search providers. There are numerous reasons for delay, such as difficulties with mortgage finance.

What average time should it take my assigned conveyancer to exchange contracts all of the conveyancing formalities on a semi detached new build building we are intending to buy?

A.

It can take anywhere between 1 month and 3 months based on a number of factors e.g. the speed of the seller's property lawyer, or the length of the chain.

Q.

I am intending to purchase a new-build home on medieval church land. Is a chancel search necessary?

A.

A conveyancing solicitor is likely to recommend that a chancel search be ordered, regardless of the parish where the house being bought is located. Through some Parochial Church Councils have opted to charge chancel repairs on the owners, there is no way to be certain that a parish in which lay rectors have not been expected to pay chancel repair dues recently will not automatically be the case for future owners, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Q.

East of England solicitors order varied searches when they are instructed by a purchase client but what particular searches?

A.

If buying and obtaining a mortgage the building society of bank mandates - Local Authority, Drainage Search and Environment Search,, and specific local East of England searches such as Chancel Repair Liability Search.
