On the purchase of a £59,000 house, what will be the fees? I am looking for low cost conveyancing in Long Eaton.


Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many buyers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned. Many solicitors advertise theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. Often extra fees are often hiding in the terms of engagement. Extra fees should be reasonable and clear.


Does your firm get involved in the conveyancing for property auction properties in Long Eaton?


Yes - Homeward Legal is able to act for buyers at auction. Our niche auction team of conveyancers have previously worked for many vendors at national and local residential property auctions, for example Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London, Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.

Wise bidders will appoint the property lawyer as ahead of time as they can for a detailed report of the sellers pack before the date of the auction. Subsequently, following the auction your solicitor is absolutely focused on completing the legal side of things in the reduced time frame as usually required .


Can we get out of paying stamp duty on property?


Stamp duty is usually due for homes over one hundred and twenty-five thousand pounds. Stamp duty mitigation scheme is not advised, as such schemes are often uneconomical and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed .


Is there anything we are supposed to do to make our Long Eaton conveyancing faster?

Contacting a proactive, diligent conveyancer is the key to a fast completion. When finding a conveyancer, consider these points: Was there a delay delivering a quote? What methods of communication do they use? Posting documents can adds days of waiting to a purchase. Do they work on a 'no sale, no fee' basis?


Will I need a chancel search? We are buying a flat conversion by land owned by the church in Long Eaton.


Property owners proximate to a church in the area are expected to contribute towards the cost of repairs, as a result of chancel repair liability. Owners who have bought property prior to 2003 may be totally unaware that a liability exists if a chancel search was not carried out. Long Eaton church properties which may give rise to chancel liability include St John and St Laurence.


I am planning on buying a renovated building in the boundary of Long Eaton conservation area, how do we locate information on the state of upkeep?


English Heritage, a government body, have created a detailed list about the condition of conservation areas along with the trend of the area. Local Long Eaton conservation areas are created by the local Erewash planning authority, who are responsible for things like the upkeep of public spaces to the prohibition of rundown streets.


Will it be necessary to get a chancel search if we are buying in the parish of Wilne with Draycott?


Your property lawyer may suggest a chancel search. Although some Parochial Church Councils have decided to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of affected property, there is no guarantee that a parish where dues have not recently been paid will not be so in future. For property in the parish of Wilne with Draycott, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.


In about 6 weeks we are likely to be moving out of our detached residence just outside Long Eaton into our new maisonette in Heanor , at what stage to choose a removals firm?


The ideal point is to avoid booking the removals until after all parties have agreed the final moving date which typically occurs once exchange of contracts.
