Q.

We need the cheapest conveyancing quote. What should be watch out for?

A.

Many homeowners seeking discount conveyancing are caught out by the lure of very low conveyancing rates. Many law firms advertise 'the cheapest conveyancing'. However additional costs may be added into the solicitor's terms. Costs should be reasonable and clear. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

For a fast conveyancing process on the purchase of a £168,000 house, what can we do to accelerate the process?

A.

Experienced buyers will tell you that a faster move is the key to is to employing a communicative conveyancer. There are numerous tasks you, as the purchaser, could do, including, responding to your conveyancer by phone, fax or email wherever possible, getting your mortgage offer in place and encouraging your conveyancer to carry out searches promptly.

Q.

What do I need to be aware of if purchasing a modified home in a Camden planning authority conservation area ?

A.

An integral part of conveyancing involves the application for searches of the local authority to confirm conservation area status and the appropriate permission for any changes. .

Q.

Should we get a chancel search if we are purchasing in the parish of Hampstead, near Euston?

A.

The lawyer is likely to recommend that a chancel search is taken out, regardless of the parish in which the building being purchased is found. Chancel repair may be imposed on the owners of a building where Parochial Church Councils may have not done so in the past. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

Which lender panels in Euston are your solicitors on?

A.

Most lenders in Euston are on our solicitors' panels. Euston lenders and mortgage specialists include Thompson Roger, 1 Connaught Plain, Attleborough, NR17 2EJ, Mortgage Centre, 4 Station Rd, Haverhill, CB9 0EU, and Ensors Financial Planning, Moseleys Farm, Fornham All Saints, Bury St. Edmunds, IP28 6JY.

Q.

How soon should we instruct a conveyancing solicitor?

A.

With a firm offering a 'no move, no fee' conveyancing quote, as soon as possible. The legal work can then begin straight away. Early instruction of a conveyancing solicitor to act on your Euston sale or purchase for a sale may mean that relevant information can be sourced sooner (this is particularly true for leasehold properties), whereas if you are buying you can shave days off the process by having the details of your instructed solicitor ready when you make an offer.

Q.

Will a local property lawyer in Euston commission official or personal searches on my home purchase?

A.

The property lawyer will make a recommendation about the ideal type of search, depending on things like search price. For personal searches, your property solicitor might perhaps look for a local search company like Stanley Davis Group Limited also t/a York Place, Stratify Associates, Eurolife Company Services, 41 Chalton Street, London, NW1 1JD Tel: 0207 554 2222.

Q.

There is a lot of online help on handling the legal side of home moving when buying and selling a flat. Would it be a false economy to enact the legals ourselves?

A.

There are no reasons why a home mover cant handle the conveyancing unaided. However, a property lawyer takes care of a large number of functions such as interpreting replies to enquiries and communicating with managing agents most of which need a qualified professional. Moreover solicitors must carry the appropriate indemnity insurance that protects you from any carelessness.
