Q.

We are looking for the cheapest conveyancing solicitors. and what is included?

A.

Numerous conveyancers claim to offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes. However additional charges will be included in the terms and conditions. Excited property buyers and sellers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Get a quote using the Homeward Legal quote calculator for the property you are buying.

Q.

Does Horsford include many designated conservation areas?

A.

These areas classify streets and neighbourhoods designated as being of 'special architectural and historic interest'. The advantages of these restrictions will include confidence that property will retain its value, but they may impose liability on a buyer for unauthorised alterations made by previous owners. Your conveyancing solicitor will be able to advise further.

Q.

Is it wise to bypass paying for stamp duty on buying a house in Horsford?

A.

We do not recommend any stamp duty mitigation scheme. Such schemes are expensive and , if a scheme is challenged, you can be fined up to 100% of the amount owed, in additional to the tax itself.

Q.

We are intending to buy a residence in Thorpe Abbots. Is a chancel search appropriate?

A.

Whichever Horsford parish you are buying in, a solicitor responsible for your move is likely to recommend a chancel search. In Horsford's much

older areas, chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on the current owners of a building where church councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Horsford?

A.

Horsford is located in Broadland District Council, Thorpe Lodge, 1 Yarmouth Road, Thorpe St Andrew, Norwich, NR7 0DU, Tel: 01603 431 133

Q.

An unpredictable set of circumstances dictate that we want to exchange contracts on the sale of our jointly owned freehold flat within 5 weeks, do you have fast Horsford conveyancing solicitors ?

A.

Our lawyers take a speed focused style when completing the transfer of title. Our lawyers will communicate throughout the property chain (sequence of buyers and sellers) and have invested in advanced CMS and IT systems to finish the legal process swiftly.

Q.

We have a leasehold property to purchase. How do we organise fast conveyancing?

A.

Finding a proactive and experienced solicitor is the key to moving faster. There are, in addition, a number of things you can also do. These include:

  • requesting status updates from the solicitor regularly
  • responding to all correspondence via the fastest means
  • getting your mortgage offer in place

Q.

My mortgage lender is Dunfermline Building Society, what do I need to be aware of?

A.

When buying with a mortgage, a mortgage provider will need legal work to be undertaken in relation to the mortgage. Recently, a number of lenders have limited the number of solicitors who can act for them. Homeward Legal can act on behalf of all large lenders so that you will not be required to pay any additional legal fees to your lender's solicitor.
