We need a fixed rate conveyancing quote in Lincolnshire. because we are on a limited budget.


Various solicitors purport to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes. Often additional costs will be included in the terms. Extra charges should be reasonable and clear. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


The current owner has added ill-suited dormer windows on the house which I think might possibly overstep Gainsborough Town conservation area criteria.


A lawyer will always ascertain if the property is located within a conservation area, and if so whether any alterations have necessary consents.Should no suitable consents be produced, your solicitor will recommend the alternatives e.g. buying an indemnity insurance policy or obtaining retrospective consent from the planning authority.


Are there many areas of conservation in Lincolnshire?


Conservation areas safeguard neighbourhoods of 'special architectural and historic interest'. Caistor, Gainsborough Town and Market Rasen are among the conservation areas in Lincolnshire. Your property solicitor will be able to advise further, in regard to relevant conservation area restrictions in Lincolnshire.


Will our legal fees cover any extra costs?

Regrettably, hidden fees are relatively common. Homeward Legal do not charge any additional charges. Some solicitors only estimate conveyancing costs, meaning that your final bill could be much higher.


Is it important to get a chancel search? I am buying close to a parson's close in Lincolnshire.


Where land in Lincolnshire was once owned by a lay-rector, new owners of that property may be obliged to fund upkeep of an old church building. A chancel search checks that such a liability exists.


What do we do to calculate stamp duty, and what will we need to pay on a £1113000 property?


The Stamp Duty which will be owed will rely on several factors, primarily the property's purchase price. It is £55650 on a £1113000 property (accurate March 2013).


Is your solicitor team set up to act quickly on the legal conveyancing of auction properties in Lincolnshire?


Yes - We are familiar with local and national auctions and frequently carry out work for buyers and sellers at auction. Our niche auction team of conveyancing lawyers have in the past been instructed by many buyers at national and local property auctions including Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London, Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.

Prudent buyers at auction tend to instruct a SRA regulated conveyancing company as ahead of time as possible to allow adequate time for a detailed investigation of the legal documents prior to the date of the auction.

Following the property auction date your instructed lawyer is fully geared up to completing the transaction in the usual 28 days as conventionally required .


Does the solicitor in Lincolnshire apply for any searches on the Lincolnshire Regency detached home we are buying?


If getting a mortgage, your lender insist that at least the following for Lincolnshire: Local Authority (council), Drainage Search and Environmental and, depending on certain criteria, area-specific searches e.g. a HS2 report.
