Q.

How do we find a discount conveyancing quote?

A.

Various solicitors claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing', however extra fees are often hiding in the solicitor's terms of engagement. These terms are often ignored by excited property buyers and sellers, eager to get underway. Extra fees found in terms of engagement needs to be reasonable. Get a quote using the Homeward Legal quote calculator for the property you are buying.

Q.

Do homewardlegal.co.uk get involved in the conveyancing for auction properties in Farnborough?

A.

Our company is very capable working with auction buyers and sellers. Homeward Legal often suggest auction buyers to appoint a suitable solicitor well before the auction day to allow for a thorough investigation. Subsequently, following the auction day itself your appointed lawyer is fully ready for completing the legal side of things within the limited time frame as usually required .

Q.

Is it important to get a chancel search if I am purchasing in Farnborough on the same street as a 1600s 'church furlong'?

A.

In Farnborough, some owners can be required to pay for repairs to older church buildings. Some names or words such as 'glebe' give an indication of a property's history, and thus whether chancel liability may apply. Farnborough Church of England properties include South Hawley All Saints, All Saints, Southwood Estate Church and North St Peter.

Q.

I am selling in Farnborough, and have had a quote from you. Are there any extra fees?

A.

Regrettably, sellers need to be watchful for extra costs hidden in a quote's terms and conditions. Homeward Legal will not charge any additional costs. Be aware that some solicitors' firms will give a low estimate, not an accurate quote, which they will not be bound to.

Q.

Why does the conveyancing work require months?

A.

The conveyancing process in Farnborough will sometimes be drawn out even where there is no chain. Sometimes, the reasons are unfortunately out of a solicitor's control, Homeward Legal, however, endeavour to minimise the cost of these delays where it is possible to do so by using fast search providers. There are numerous reasons for delay, such as slow third parties such as landlords or managing agents.

Q.

How much is the council tax on a Thirties detached Band A property in Farnborough?

A.

You will find your property's council tax band with the title report. Correct rates for residents of Farnborough are detailed online at the Rushmoor local authority site. At the time of writing (04 September 2012) rates for all bands are:

  • Band A - £953.00
  • Band B - £1,112.00
  • Band C - £1,271.00
  • Band D - £1,430.00
  • Band E - £1,747.00
  • Band F - £2,065.00
  • Band G - £2,383.00
  • Band H - £2,859.00

Q.

I plan to buy a property in the parish of Mottistone. Should we order a chancel search?

A.

Your conveyancing lawyer should confirm that a chancel search be taken out. In older areas of Farnborough, chancel repair dues can be collected on current owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils may have not done so in the past, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.

Q.

Which elements help with arranging fast legal work?

A.

The key to a fast completion is to employing a experienced property lawyer. Beyond that, there are several tasks you as the buyer could do to get moving sooner. These include:

  • responding to your property lawyer by phone, fax or email wherever possible
  • arranging your mortgage offer
  • requesting regular updates from your property lawyer and keep the pressure on
