Q.

How do I get a cheap solicitor in Hawkshead for buying a freehold home?

A.

Several firms claim to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing', however additional fees can increase your solicitor's invoice. A conveyancing quote should list costs to be paid to third parties, e.g. the Land Registry, (disbursements). Extra fees found in your solicitor's terms ought to be reasonable. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Does our professional conveyancing solicitor in Hawkshead report back to me about the amount to be paid of council tax on a Band H building before exchange of contracts?

A.

Your property solicitor will speak to the South Lakeland local council to ask about the relevant council tax rates, which will subsequently be added to the conveyancing report on title.

Council tax rates for properties in Hawkshead are set out online at the South Lakeland local authority website. As at (30 December 2012) rates are as follows:

  • Band A - £1,044.00

Q.

What authority is under obligation for publishing the standard of repair of Hawkshead conservation areas?

A.

Following a campaign, English Heritage have conducted a survey and created information about the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas as well as the vulnerability of the area. Conservation areas in Hawkshead are created by the local South Lakeland planning authority, who govern the state of the area including things like neon signs, the painting of houses and whether trees can be cut down.

Q.

How much would my searches usually cost?

A.

With a Homeward Legal solicitor, clients buying in Hawkshead expected to pay at most £249 for searches on a Hawkshead residential property. Your solicitor will usually advise a pack including a chancel liability search and a local authority search.

Q.

We are intending to purchase a converted chapel in Ravenstonedale. Should we get a chancel search?

A.

A solicitor responsible for your move may suggest that a chancel search is taken out. Chancel repair dues can be collected on current owners of a residence where Parochial Church Councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners.

Q.

Is your solicitor team geared up for 28 day completions on residential property auction conveyancing in Hawkshead?

A.

Indeed we work with auctioneers throughout Cumbria and do frequently get instructed by sellers at auction. It is a shrewd move for buyers to formally appoint their chosen conveyancing company as early as possible to give enough time for a detailed report of the auction legal pack in advance of the auction day.

Thereafter, following the property auction date your chosen lawyer is utterly prepared for concluding the conveyancing inside a month as conventionally required .
