Q.

I need to find discount conveyancing. What do I need to check for?

A.

Confusion over this topic affects many buyers who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process. Many firms purport to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often extra fees are frequently hidden in the terms, left unread by preoccupied buyers Extras should be reasonable. They be applicable solely where the lawyer is required to complete extra work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Any disbursements to be paid ought to be listed on a quote. Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Is contaminated land a concern for most homes in Huntingdon?

A.

Property in Huntingdon may be contaminated by a broad range of environmental concerns. Contaminants such as existing and proposed overhead electricity cables should be considered as part of the appropriate search. Contamination can be caused by Huntingdon waste sites, including Brickyar Farm, Cow Lane, Cambridgeshire, PE29 2RJ.

Q.

I would like to know which Huntingdon lenders your lawyers are able to work with. Which panels are you on?

A.

We can work with the majority of lenders serving Huntingdon purchasers. Lenders and mortgage specialists in Huntingdon include Scott Mark Ltd, 15-17 White Hart Ct, St. Ives, PE27 5EA, Mortgage Broker (Peterborough) Ltd, 5 Sandpiper Close, Whittlesey, Peterborough, PE7 1EA, and Mortgage Shop, Telephone House/Wentworth St, Peterborough, PE1 1BA. The lawyer handling the work for your Huntingdon purchase or sale will be able to deal with the particular enquiries and searches your lender requires.

Q.

Do we need a chancel search if I am buying in the parish of Kingston?

A conveyancing solicitor should confirm that a chancel search is taken out, whichever parish in which the house being purchased is found. Through some Parochial Church Councils have decided to exact chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish in which lay rectors have not been expected to pay chancel repair dues recently will remain liability-free for new owners, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.

Q.

Will my professional conveyancing solicitor in Huntingdon report back to me about the amount to be paid of the council tax on a Band E flat before completing on the purchase?

A.

Your property lawyer will speak to the council to find out the latest council tax band and rates, which should then be added to the title report. The latest council tax charges for residents of Huntingdon are published on the Huntingdonshire council site. On, 31 January 2013, rates are as follows:

  • Band A - £1,013.00
  • Band B - £1,182.00
  • Band C - £1,350.00
  • Band D - £1,519.00
  • Band E - £1,857.00
  • Band F - £2,195.00
  • Band G - £2,532.00
  • Band H - £3,039.00

Q.

Is a postage, photocopying and phone calls fee a fee or disbursement?

A.

A quote will clearly list all disbursements and fees. This cost is a fee not a disbursement. It should be included in a quote for your conveyancing.

Q.

Why does conveyancing for a purchase have so many delays?

A.

The conveyancing process may be held up. Homeward Legal do our best to reduce the cost of these delays by driving the transaction forward. Delays can include a slow firm acting for the lender.
