Q.

Does your company conduct auction conveyancing in Longford?

A.

Homeward Legal is very knowledgeable with residential property auction conveyancing. Quite often unusually constructed homes e. g. barn conversions, are sold in property auctions and these demand deeper investigation. Conveyancers therefore advise that buyers at auction appoint a qualified lawyer before the date of the auction to allow time for a title report.

Immediately following the auction your instructed property lawyer is fully able to concentrate on finishing the transaction inside a as tight time frame as required by the terms if sale.

Q.

What is the risk of gazumping?

A.

This occurs when an offer is, following agreement, later rejected by the seller, choosing instead a better offer. Although being gazumped is less common in a declining market, there will always be a risk. Consider instructing your property solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer to reduce the chance of your offer being gazumped.

Q.

If I plan to buy in the parish of Padbury, will we need a chancel search?

A.

The lawyer is likely to recommend a chancel search. Chancel repair dues can be collected on the current owners of a building where Parochial Church Councils have previously chosen not to do so, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.

Q.

When should we instruct a conveyancer in Longford?

A.

With few exceptions, instructing as early as possible is better, as there are various tasks which may be carried out very early in the process. Instructing a solicitor to handle your Longford conveyancing early for a sale means that documents can be prepared earlier, considerably accelerating the whole process, whereas if you are buying your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed.
