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.

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.

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.

How can I go about ascertain if the conservation area is neglected?

A.

Following a campaign, English Heritage have assembled records of the state of conservation areas. Local conservation areas are nominated

by Scarborough who regulate everything from including things like poorly maintained roads, addition of hard standings to front and the historic layout of roads.

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.

Does my professional conveyancing solicitor in Filey inform me about the cost of the council tax on a Band H property prior to exchange of contracts?

A.

The property solicitor will write to the council to discover the correct council tax band and rates, which will then be set out in the conveyancing report on title. The correct charges for properties in Filey are published on the Scarborough council site. At the time of writing on 09 August 2012 rates are:

  • Band A - £1,036.00
  • Band B - £1,208.00
  • Band C - £1,381.00
  • Band D - £1,553.00
  • Band E - £1,899.00
  • Band F - £2,244.00
  • Band G - £2,589.00
  • Band H - £3,107.00

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.

Why does conveyancing for a Filey property sale take months to complete?

A.

The conveyancing process will occasionally endure stressful setbacks, we, however, strive to curtail their effect wherever a difference can be made by, for example, ordering searches as early as possible. Common delays can include difficulties with mortgage finance.
