Q.

How do I find a discount conveyancing estimate?

A.

Both high-street and online solicitors offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. However extra fees are frequently hidden in the terms of engagement. Any additional fees listed in terms and conditions ought to be reasonable and clear and come into force only if the solicitor must perform additional tasks , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Which of the Keston mortgage lender panels are you a member of?

A.

Of lenders with branches around Keston, Homeward Legal work in conjunction with most. Lenders and mortgage specialists in Keston include Foster Denovo, Ravensbourne/Westerham Rd, Keston, BR2 6HE.

Q.

Please recommend how to get out of paying out for stamp duty to the Revenue?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax is usually payable on homes sold for more than £125,000. Homeward Legal do not advise buyers undertake any form of stamp duty reduction. Such schemes are costly and often likely to fail.

Q.

I am purchasing a residence in the parish of Eastwell. Will a chancel search be required?

A.

A property lawyer might recommend a chancel search, regardless of the parish in which the property being purchased is found. Chancel repair can be imposed on the current owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) may have spared previous owners or tenants, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.

Q.

Will you need to get a chancel search if we are buying in Keston near a 1600s rectory manor?

A.

Owners of property in Keston may be subject to chancel repair liability. Parochial Church Councils in Keston must register their interest over property by October 2013, simplifying the chancel search process. Your conveyancing solicitor can provide more details. Keston ecclesiastical properties include Parish Church.

Q.

For fast legal work on the purchase of a £ 230k home, what do we need to do?

A.

Essential to faster conveyancing is to use a proactive, diligent solicitor. There are several things you, as the buyer, can also do to get moving sooner, including, answering any queries raised by your solicitor as soon as possible, arranging your mortgage offer and requesting status updates from the solicitor regularly.

Q.

I am buying a property with Derbyshire Building Society - what do I need to be aware of?

A.

Some lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel'. For house purchasers, this can result in significantly increased legal costs. We are able to act on behalf of most mortgage lenders.

Q.

Do I need to instruct the firm of solicitors suggested by the estate agent in Stow on the Wold?

A.

It is common practice for estate agents to refer a law firm to handle your conveyancing. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, there is a risk that an agent may choose whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the best value for you.
