Q.

How do I find a cheap solicitor quote to own new build property?

A.

Many online and high street solicitors claim to offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately additional costs are often hiding in the solicitor's terms of engagement. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.

Do we need to get a house survey for our property purchase?

A.

It is heavily suggested that you instruct a home surveyor. It is a fact that there are many concerns that can affect a property, which will not be covered by the legal work, for example blocked drains.

Q.

Why might conveyancing in Leven take such a long time?

A.

Conveyancing will sometimes be lengthy. Homeward Legal work hard to reduce the cost of these delays whenever possible by driving the sale or purchase forward. Delays include a slow firm acting for the lender.

Q.

Will my Leven solicitor tell me about the amount to be paid of council tax on a Band A building before completion?

A.

The property's relevant council tax band should usually be given in the report on title along with the local council

The correct charges for Leven are listed at the East Riding of Yorkshire local authority website. As at, 30 September 2012, rates are as follows:

  • Band A - £1,005.00
  • Band B - £1,173.00
  • Band C - £1,341.00
  • Band D - £1,508.00
  • Band E - £1,843.00
  • Band F - £2,178.00
  • Band G - £2,514.00
  • Band H - £3,016.00

Q.

What does a Leven property lawyer recommend if the building we want to buy is inside the boundary of a East Riding of Yorkshire conservation area that possibly has unapproved dormer windows added?

A.

The local authority search (LLC1 - Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search) carried out by a property lawyer during the legal process will ascertain the existence of the appropriate authorisation for additions to the property. If no suitable consents be available your solicitor will inform you of the best alternative which may include buying an indemnity insurance policy or getting retrospective consent from East Riding of Yorkshire council.

Q.

Our mortgage lender is Mortgage Express, is there anything we need to check?

A.

Some lenders are now limiting the firms who can act for them, resulting in greater legal costs for buyers if the lender insists upon their own solicitor . We will act on behalf of all large lenders.

Q.

What would the searches cost?

A.

Searches in Leven ranges in cost, and will be dependent on your lender's requirements. Searches are disbursements paid to a third party, and will not be included in a solicitor's fees.

Q.

Do you recommend taking action to bypass paying stamp duty to the Revenue?

A.

Stamp duty is payable on property sold for over 125,000 pounds. We firmly advise against any stamp duty mitigation, as such schemes are expensive and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed .
