Q.

We are buying a Lynmouth property with Virgin, what do I need to check?

A.

Traditionally, most solicitors could act for the majority lenders. Over the last two years, some lenders are now reducing their 'solicitor panel', potentially creating increased conveyancing costs for buyers. Homeward Legal, fortunately, are able to act for all major mortgage lenders so that you will not be required to pay the lender's legal fees.

Unfortunate circumstances dictate that we want to complete on the conveyancing on our refurbished apartment in as short a time as possible, do Homeward Legal employ fast Lynmouth conveyancers ?

We only allocate you to company which will always attempt to communicate by phone and email end to end throughout the chain .

Q.

We are buying a period house in a Lynmouth conservation area. Where can I locate more information in respect of the standard of upkeep?

A.

Local conservation areas are designated by the local authority (North Devon) who govern things like paths to the improvement of poorly-maintained public spaces. English Heritage now maintain a list on the condition of conservation areas along with the vulnerability.

Q.

My agent has put forward a firm of solicitors that they have used before. Will it be cheaper to instruct this solicitor?

A.

Estate agent recommendations are a common practice way to find a solicitor, however, such referrals must be compared with other local solicitors, or better-value firms found online, as there is a risk that an agent may choose whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the law firm with the best reputation.

Q.

Do you have low cost solicitors that manage the conveyancing of auction properties in Lynmouth?

A.

Yes - We are very capable working with bidders at auction. Conveyancers consistently encourage buyers at auction to formally instruct an affordable property lawyer well before the auction so there is time for a title report of the lot. Post day of the auction your chosen lawyer is absolutely able to concentrate on swiftly completing the conveyancing within 4 weeks as typically required by the auction conditions.

Q.

We plan to purchase a converted chapel in Mortehoe. Is a chancel search compulsory?

A.

Whether you are buying a residence in Lynmouth or elsewhere in the county, the property lawyer is likely to recommend that a chancel search is taken out. Through some church councils have exercised their right to exact chancel repairs on the owners of affected property, a conveyancing solicitor cannot verify that a parish in which lay rectors have not been expected to pay chancel repair dues recently will remain liability-free for new owners.
