Q.

There are lots of 'cheap' offers, but how do we find a good one? We need to find a fixed rate conveyancing estimate.

A.

Many online and high street solicitors claim to offer cheap conveyancing quotes, however additional charges are frequently hidden in the terms. This small print is often not read by homeowners in a hurry.

Q.

We are purchasing a £425000 Felpham property, what should be determined for Stamp Duty Land Tax rates?

A.

Stamp Duty is dependent on the valuation. For a house or flat bought for £425000, the rate will be £12750.*

Q.

We are planning to buy with Barnsley Building Society - is there anything we need to be aware of?

A.

A small number of lenders have limited the number of solicitors who can act for them. Homeward Legal, fortunately, are able to act for many lenders in the UK.

Q.

Why does sale conveyancing legal work require months? We had several delays with our previous solicitor.

A.

The conveyancing process can be delayed for many reasons. The reasons can sometimes be out of the conveyancing solicitor's hands. We seek to reduce the consequences of these delays whenever possible by proactively handling all enquiries.

Q.

For a fast conveyancing transaction to buy a £270,000 house, what do we need to do?

Primarily, finding a proactive property lawyer is essential to a fast transaction. There are several tasks you as the purchaser can do to speed up the process. These include:

  • calling or emailing your property lawyer, and chase them if you suspect any delays
  • answering any queries raised by your property lawyer as soon as possible
  • if you intend to get a house survey, doing so as early as you can

Q.

Will we need a building surveyor to investigate this home purchase?

A.

It is highly recommended that home buyers book a surveyor. Buyers should be aware that there are a wide range of problems which can negatively affect a property, that a lender's valuation survey, for example, will not cover. These can include unsafe chimney circulation.

Q.

In about five weeks we are intending to be finally moving out of our detached house just outside Felpham to our new home in Cowfold at what point to instruct a removal company?

A.

The best advice is to wait before booking a removal firm until after all parties have settled an absolute date that regularly happens once final contracts are signed. Some home removals firms add an additional a cancellation payment .

Q.

Conveyancing solicitors in Felpham conduct varied property conveyancing searches when they are instructed to act for a purchaser but what particular ones?

A.

If purchasing and applying for a mortgage a mortgage lender mandates at least - Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environmental as well as any special local Felpham searches e.g. a Index Map.
