Q.

I need a cheap Filey solicitor for selling a house. How do I get a quote?

A.

Various solicitors offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra fees will be included in the terms. Additional fees needs to be fair and reasonable. They only be applied if the solicitor is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. A quote should also state any disbursements to be paid.

Q.

Which local authority looks after Filey?

A.

Filey is located in Scarborough Borough Council, Town Hall, St Nicholas Street, Scarborough, North Yorkshire, YO11 2HG, phone: 01723 232323

Q.

Should we order a chancel search if I plan to buy in the parish of Appleton Wiske, near Filey?

A.

Whichever Filey parish in which you are purchasing, a conveyancing lawyer could advise a chancel search. Although some church councils have decided to impose chancel repairs on owners of affected property, it is not possible to be certain that a parish where repair costs have not been paid before, that this will not be so in future. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.

Q.

How much can our searches be?

A.

With a Homeward Legal solicitor, conveyancing clients are required to pay no more than £249 for a standard search bundle. Searches are disbursements paid to a third party, and are not included in the quoted conveyancing fees.

Q.

Do I need to be worried about gazumping?

A.

Unfortunately, gazumping is widespread both in Filey, and across Yorkshire, North Riding and happens when a property seller approves an offer and then rejects it, selecting instead a greater offer. Though being gazumped is uncommon when property prices are falling, there is still a chance. Instructing your property solicitor early is a key first step to reducing this risk.

Q.

I am buying a home with Ahli United Bank, what do I need to know?

A.

Recently, a number of lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel'. For buyers, this can result in significantly higher legal costs. We will act for many lenders to ensure that you will not need to pay your lender's conveyancing fees.

Q.

My partner and I are buying in Filey. Can I check that the residence is in a conservation area?

A.

Conservation areas categorise areas of historic or architectural significance. You may wish to contact the local authority for more information, but your lawyer will investigate this in detail.

Q.

When in the process should you speak to a conveyancer in Filey?

A.

With a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, the sooner the better, as the legal work can start straight away. Some groups recommend postponing instruction until a chain is completed, but opting to delay can jeopardise your sale or purchase.
