Q.

I need to find a cheap solicitor quote to sell freehold property. What should be watch out for?

A.

Many online and high street firms advertise so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately extra fees are frequently hidden in the small print. This small print is often not read by sellers in a hurry. Any costs included in terms of engagement ought to be reasonable and come into force only if your lawyer must complete work beyond standard conveyancing in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. A quote must also state the disbursements to be paid.

Q.

I am buying a sixties investment property in one of the conservation areas. How do I find details in relation to the state of repair of the area?

A.

Conservation areas in Helston are created by the local Cornwall planning authority, who regulate things like whether trees can be cut down to the thwarting of billboards.

English Heritage maintain details about the condition of conservation areas in addition to the vulnerability of the area.

Q.

I am purchasing a medieval barn conversion in the parish of Duloe. Will a chancel search be necessary?

A.

Whether you are buying a home in Helston or elsewhere in the county, the solicitor is likely to recommend that a chancel search is ordered. Through some Parochial Church Councils have taken the decision to charge chancel repairs on new owners of lay rectorships, a solicitor cannot state with certainty that a parish which has not been subject to chancel liability in the past will continue to be unaffected.

Q.

Do you have low cost solicitors that deal with the legal conveyancing of residential property auction properties in Helston?

A.

Homeward Legal is used to working with sellers at auction. Our highly qualified lawyers have previously been instructed by numerous vendors at local Helston property auctions that include Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London, Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.

Prudent purchasers tend to decide on a SRA regulated solicitor as rapidly as possible so there is time for a detailed report of the legal pack prior to the property auction.

After the auction day itself your chosen lawyer is utterly ready for finishing all of the legal work inside a month as typically required .

Q.

I am buying a house with Santander - is there anything I need to know?

A.

A small number of lenders are now reducing their 'solicitor panel', resulting in increased conveyancing costs for buyers if a second chosen solicitor is required by their lender. We are able to act for all large lenders.

Q.

We are buying in Helston on a new development brownfield site. Could the top-soil be contaminated by industrial waste?

A.

Soil contamination is monitored frequently. Data on many contaminants, such as water contaminants such as bleach and perchlorate, will be included in an environmental search.

Q.

When you are purchasing a Helston property on the same road as land owned by the church, should I get a chancel search?

A.

Repair costs resulting from chancel liability can total hundreds of thousands of pounds. A chancel search will confirm whether liability for Helston properties is likely to exist. A solicitor will be able to advise further. Churches in the local area include Ashton The Annunciation, Breage St Breaca and St Michael.

Q.

How can we stop gazumping?

A.

This occurs when a house seller accepts an offer, then refuses it, choosing instead a greater offer. There is almost always a risk of gazumping. Consider instructing a law firm early, and even before acceptance of an offer to reduce the chance of your offer being gazumped.
