Q.

We need discount conveyancing. What should be watch out for?

A.

Many solicitors claim to offer so-called cheap conveyancing, however extra charges may be added into the terms of engagement, left unregarded by busy buyers The quote should, in addition, define any disbursements to be paid. Any extra charges included in the small print should be clearly defined. They only be applied if the lawyer is required to complete unexpected extra work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the solicitors' fees, based on the property you are buying.

Q.

Do you advise taking precautions to defer paying out for stamp duty land tax?

A.

We strongly advise against any form of stamp duty mitigation scheme. These schemes are expensive and , if a scheme is challenged, you can be fined up to 100% of the amount owed, in additional to the tax itself.

Q.

Which of the lender panels in Melbourne are you on?

A.

Of lenders with branches in or near Melbourne, Homeward Legal work with the bulk of them. Lenders and mortgage specialists in Melbourne include HSBC Bank, 8 High St, Melbourne, Derby, DE73 8GN.

Q.

My agent has put forward a solicitor . Is it advisable to use this firm?

A.

Both agents and mortgage brokers will suggest a conveyancer. These referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, as there is a risk that an agent may choose the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the law firm with the best reputation.

Q.

What makes the conveyancing process in Melbourne appear to be so drawn out?

A.

Conveyancing in Melbourne may take more time for many reasons. Some reasons are regrettably out of a solicitor's hands. Homeward Legal seek to lessen their burden by using fast search providers.

Q.

For fast legal work to buy a £682,000 property, what should we guarantee to accelerate our conveyancing process?

A.

Contacting a proactive solicitor is crucial to a fast transaction. When finding a solicitor, consider these questions: Did you experience any delays when requesting a quote? Do they use email? Will they work on a 'no sale, no fee' basis?

Q.

What actual property will my Melbourne lawyer carry out when acting on a Melbourne flat?

A.

The normal legal procedure is to obtain Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search (Con29DW or personal), Environment Search and Lead and occasionally unique particular for instance Contaminated land Search.

Q.

We are purchasing a home in Radbourne. Is a chancel search needed?

A.

Whichever Melbourne parish you are buying in, a solicitor may suggest a chancel search. Chancel repair may be imposed on new owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.
