Q.

We are trying to find a solicitors firm that offers cheap conveyancing. What do I need to check for?

A.

The confusion over this matter catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many conveyancers purport to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes, however additional costs may be added into small print, left unregarded by busy buyers Any charges should be reasonable. They be applicable solely where the conveyancer is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Your conveyancing quote ought to list third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid.Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

Q.

What makes conveyancing to require so much time and effort?

A.

The legal work involved in buying or selling Hanley property may take more time than budgeted, Homeward Legal, however, endeavour to minimise the cost of these delays wherever possible to do so.

Q.

We are buying on a Hanley former industrial site. Is the top-soil potentially contaminated?

With this region's industrial history in parts of Hanley, top-soil contamination is impossible to completely avoid. The local authority for Hanley will be able to provide more detail on cases of contamination.

Q.

I am planning to buy a property. Do we need searches?

A.

Searches are a standardised set of enquiries ordered on behalf of the purchaser. Searches cover solely issues and defects relating to the property's legal title.

Q.

Are costs for obtaining landlord's consent to alterations fees or disbursements?

A.

A conveyancing quote should clearly state all fees and disbursements. These costs are fees not disbursements. Consent can be difficult to arrange, but the fee may be included in your conveyancing quote.

Q.

I am completing next June. How is stamp duty rates assessed?

A.

The Stamp Duty rate owed will depend on the purchase price. It will be £59900 on a £1198000 house or flat.*

Q.

Does your solicitors company specialise property auction conveyancing in Hanley?

A.

Yes - We are able to work with auction buyers and sellers. Our solicitors and conveyancers have been instructed by many successful bidders at local Hanley auctions that include Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London, Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.

Savvy auction buyers know to select a CQS lawyer as quickly as they can for an investigation of the sellers pack prior to the actual auction. Post auction day arrives your instructed conveyancing solicitor will be able to concentrate on finishing the transaction within a month as conventionally required .

Q.

I plan to purchase a house in Onecote. Will a chancel search be appropriate?

A.

The lawyer may suggest a chancel search. Chancel repair may be apportioned on new owners of a home where church councils may have not done so in the past. For property in the parish of Onecote, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.
