Q.

How do I find a discount conveyancing estimate?

A.

Numerous firms advertise cheap conveyancing quotes. However additional costs can inflate your solicitor's invoice. Third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid must also be stated on a conveyancing quote. Get a quote using the Homeward Legal quote calculator for the property you are buying.

Q.

Fixtures and fittings refer to which items?

A.

New owners are frequently confused by the lack of detail regarding fixtures and fittings. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.

Q.

Please address how to get out of paying SDLT?

A.

Stamp duty scheme is not advised when buying in Evesham. These schemes are highly expensive and can be very unlikely to succeed. There have been several government initiatives, such as higher thresholds for first-time buyers, and your solicitor will advise if these may apply.

Q.

My mortgage lender is Swansea Building Society - is there anything we need to consider?

A.

Until recently, most conveyancing solicitors were able to undertake legal work for a lender. Buyers should consider that, over the last two years, some lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor

panel'. We can act on behalf of all major mortgage lenders so that you will not be required to pay any additional legal fees to your lender's solicitor.

Q.

Should I opt for the lawyer who frequently works with by our estate agent in Pontefract?

A.

Both agents and mortgage brokers may recommend a law firm to handle your conveyancing, however, such referrals must be carefully considered, as an agent may choose whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the best value for you.

Q.

We are buying a chapel in Worcester St John the Baptist. Will we need a chancel search?

A.

Whether you are buying a house in Evesham or elsewhere in the county, the property lawyer may suggest that a chancel search be ordered. In Evesham's much older areas, chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on the current owners of a house where parish councils may have spared previous owners or tenants.
