Q.

On the purchase of a £243k property, what will be the fees? We are trying to find a low cost conveyancing quote.

A.

This affects many buyers who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process, and many conveyancers advertise theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately extra fees will be included in the solicitor's terms of engagement which unwary buyers fail to check. The quote must also state any disbursements to be paid.

Q.

Is homewardlegal.co.uk able to very fast completions on the legal conveyancing of property auction properties in Kirkby In Furness?

A.

We put together legal documentation for vendors and regularly act for auction buyers and sellers. Solicitors invariably suggest buyers to choose a lawyer well in advance of the date of the auction to allow adequate time for a full review of the property's legal title.

Following the auction day your selected conveyancing lawyer is completely able to concentrate on finishing the conveyancing within a as tight time frame as typically required .

Q.

We are buying a renovated flat in a Kirkby In Furness conservation area. Where does one locate data relating to the standard of repair?

A.

Local conservation areas are created by South Lakeland who preside over everything from paths and footpaths to the policing of vacant buildings. Following a campaign, English Heritage maintain information in relation to the condition of conservation areas along with the trend of the area.

Q.

We plan to buy a residence in the parish of Beetham. Should we get a chancel search?

A.

The property lawyer may suggest that a chancel search is ordered, irrespective of the parish where the building being bought is found. Through some church councils have chosen to charge chancel repairs on new owners of affected property, a solicitor cannot state with certainty that a parish where chancel repair fees have not been paid previously will not continue to be so.

Q.

Does my Kirkby In Furness property solicitor report back to me about the cost of the council tax for a Band E apartment prior to completion?

A.

A solicitor will consult with the relevant South Lakeland local authority to discover the currently applicable council tax rates, which will be written in the title report. The latest tax rates for properties in Kirkby In Furness are set out on the South Lakeland local authority website. On 16 July 2012 the different rates are:

  • Band A - £1,044.00
  • Band B - £1,218.00
  • Band C - £1,392.00
  • Band D - £1,566.00
  • Band E - £1,915.00
  • Band F - £2,263.00
  • Band G - £2,611.00
  • Band H - £3,133.00

Q.

When in the process do we need to get a solicitor to handle our transaction?

A.

In the majority of situations, earlier is preferable. Instructing your solicitor earlier can limit the risk of the sale or purchase aborting.

Q.

What will the Kirkby In Furness conveyancing lawyer do if the home is in a local authority conservation area and has an un-consented roof aerials added?

A.

South Lakeland local authority LLC1 searches conducted by a solicitor will find out if the property is in a designated conservation area and any evidence of planning authority consent for modifications will be requested. If no appropriate consents can be provided your solicitor will inform you of all options which can include buying an indemnity insurance or seeking retrospective consent from South Lakeland local authority.

Q.

We have taken out a quote from you. Could we be billed any hidden charges?

A.

Homeward Legal do not charge any hidden extra costs. Some firms only provide estimates disguised as quotes, meaning that your final bill could be much higher.
