Hunmanby train station is about 3 miles from Filey. Filey's nearest airport is Kirmington, Humberside International Airport (43 miles).

Scarborough General is the nearest hospital.

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.

Is contaminated land an issue for the majority of homes in Filey?

A.

A wide range of contaminants may lessen the desirability land, and an environmental search will confirm if a property may be affected by contaminants in Filey including landfill sites or other land contamination. North Wold Farm, North Yorkshire, YO14 0LE, for example, may be a source of local contamination.

Q.

What can a Filey property lawyer recommend if the house we are buying is within a Scarborough council conservation area and has unsympathetic roof antenna fitted to it?

A.

Local authority Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search carried out by a solicitor in the process of the conveyancing will find out if the property is in a designated conservation area proof of the appropriate permissions for changes to the property will be asked for.

Q.

Is homewardlegal.co.uk able to handle fast completions on the conveyancing of auction properties in Filey?

A.

Indeed we are auction specialists and regularly act for bidders at auction. It is prudent to instruct a solicitors practice as soon as they can to allow for a detailed review of the documents in advance of the auction. Following the actual auction your selected lawyer is utterly able to concentrate on concluding the transaction in as short a time frame as usually required by the auction conditions.

Q.

May my property legal fees have any hidden fees?

A.

No. We do not hide any additional fees for standard conveyancing. Rarely, your solicitor advises that another piece of work be carried out, such as a deed of trust, . You will be made aware of any such fees before they are incurred.

Q.

Doing ones own conveyancing without using a Filey property solicitor appears to be becoming possible when buying a flat. However, would it actually be a good economy ?

A.

Legally speaking there is no argument at all why you cant handle the bulk of the conveyancing yourself. That said, a property solicitor typically handles a long list of jobs e.g. chasing any outstanding docs and registering the new title owner some of which need training.

However solicitors practices are under a duty to be covered by sufficient indemnity insurance that protects you from any omissions.

Q.

Do you need a chancel search when I am purchasing a Filey house close by church land?

A.

Potentially amounting to over £100,000 in repair cost obligations, chancel liability should be considered by buyers of Filey property likely to be affected. Following the Land Registration Act 2002, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. Your solicitor can provide more details. Filey church lands include St John and St Oswald.

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.
