Q.

How do I find the best rates for conveyancing for a £147k property?

A.

Many home owners seeking discount conveyancing are caught out by the lure of very low conveyancing rates, and many conveyancers purport to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. However additional fees will be included in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Excited home owners, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Additional costs should be fair. They be applicable solely where the lawyer must perform additional tasks in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

We are purchasing a church rectory in Hale. Is a chancel search appropriate?

A.

A conveyancing lawyer could advise a chancel search, irrespective of the parish where the property being bought is located. Through some parish councils have opted to impose chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, there is no guarantee that a parish in which lay rectors have not been expected to pay chancel repair dues recently will remain liability-free for new owners. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

What specific searches should a Hale property lawyer get when buying a Hale building?

A.

The routine conveyancing protocol is to get Local Authority Search, Drainage and Water Search, Environmental and Coal Mining Search and perhaps less common searches such as Commons Registration Search.

Q.

Will my solicitor in Hale conduct personal or official searches on my home purchase?

A.

Your conveyancing solicitor will make a recommendation about the ideal type of search, depending on issues like lender requirements. For personal searches, the conveyancing solicitor may consider a search agent wit local experience for example Scout Legal Services a trading name of Mrs T Hinde, 58 Stanhope Road, Bowdon, Altrincham, Cheshire, WA14 3JL Tel: 0161 929 6936 Fax: 0161 929 6937

Q.

Is preparation of statutory declarations paid to the conveyancing solicitor?

A.

Comparing quotes is not always easy, given the various definitions different firms use to describe the same thing. This cost is a fee not a disbursement, and will normally be included in a conveyancing quote.

Q.

What causes conveyancing to have so many delays?

A.

The legal work needed to sell or purchase a house or flat could be exposed to significant delays. We endeavour to minimise the cost of these delays by using fast search providers. Reasons for delay can include waiting for responses from third parties.

Q.

What is the council tax on a Sixties converted house in Hale?
