Q.

I need the cheapest conveyancing solicitors. What are the risks?

A.

Both high-street and online firms advertise supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes. Often extra costs will be included in small print that buyers often do not check. Extra charges listed in terms of engagement should be clearly defined. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the solicitors' fees, based on the property you are buying.

Q.

Will it be necessary to get a chancel search if we are buying in the parish of Hurst, near Hurst?

A.

The solicitor instructed to handle the transaction could recommend a chancel search, regardless of the parish where the building being bought is found. Through some Parochial Church Councils have determined to charge chancel repairs on owners of affected property, there is no guarantee that a parish where chancel repair fees have not been paid previously will not continue to be so, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.

Q.

The property seller appears to have installed PVC windows to the flat in Hurst which might possibly exclude nearby conservation area rules

A.

Your instructed conveyancing solicitor will make enquiries to establish if the property is located within a conservation area, and if so whether any modifications have appropriate consent.

Q.

We are planning to buy in Hurst. Can we find out if the house is in a conservation area?

A.

There are several areas of conservation in or near Hurst. Living in a conservation area can mean better maintained homes and gardens, but the restrictions can add to maintenance costs. A lawyer will confirm potential liability for unauthorised works.

Q.

What are Hurst conveyancing searches?

A.

Conveyancing searches are a typical set of enquiries carried out for the buyer, for example a search of the Index Map. Searches consider legal-related matters.

Q.

What is gazumping?

A.

Gazumping is not uncommon in Hurst and describes circumstances where a house seller approves an offer, only to refuse it, opting for a better offer. There is almost always a risk of gazumping. Consider instructing a solicitor as soon as you can to reduce the chance of your offer being gazumped.

Q.

For what reason does conveyancing seem to be so slow?

A.

The legal work needed to sell or purchase property can be exposed to significant delays, Homeward Legal, however, seek to reduce the cost of these delays if it can be achieved.

Q.

Please confirm how to defer paying stamp duty to the Revenue?

A.

Stamp duty reduction should not be considered when purchasing in Hurst, because these schemes are costly and , if a scheme is challenged, you can be fined up to 100% of the amount owed, in additional to the tax itself.
