Q.

How do I get affordable conveyancing?

A.

Lack of clarity over this issue catches out many sellers and buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors claim to offer cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately additional charges are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms of engagement which sellers and buyers may have not read carefully The online quote calculator can generate an accurate statement of the legal fees for the property you plan to buy.

Q.

Conveyancing and environmental searches may be fine but when one considers current events for instance the flooding in Sept 2012 in North East England are they still appropriate to see sufficient information about the changing Murton future flood risk?

A.

A qualified Murton conveyancer should carry out thorough flood risk searches (Landmark search) if the standard conveyancing searches spots a Murton flood risk.

You can also converse with a neighbour of the property for additional added local information.

Q.

Will the property report prepared by the Murton property lawyer include details of the relevant rates of council tax on a Band E house prior to exchanging contracts?

Your property solicitor will contact the appropriate local authority to ascertain the latest council tax charges which will then be added to the conveyancer's title report. Up-to-date charges for properties in Murton are set out at the local authority site.

Q.

What particular conveyancing searches will a Murton solicitor carry out when carrying out the conveyancing for a Murton home?

A.

The common conveyancing procedure will be to get Local Authority, Drainage Search (Con29DW or personal) and Environment Search, and possibly specific local searches for example HS2 report.

Q.

We are buying with Leeds Building Society, what do we need to know?

A.

In some cases, lenders are now reducing the size of their 'solicitor panel'. This can mean higher legal costs for property buyers. Homeward Legal, however, can act for many lenders.

Q.

My agent has named a lawyer. Should I use this solicitor?

A.

Both agents and mortgage brokers will often recommend one or more conveyancing firms, however, such referrals need to be considered carefully, as an agent may choose the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the best value for you.

Q.

How much can our conveyancing searches cost?

A.

With a Homeward Legal solicitor, conveyancing clients are required to pay no more than £249 for the standard search bundle. Searches are paid out to a 3rd party, and are not included in your solicitor's fees.

Q.

To complete on our purchase ASAP, can we arrange a fast conveyancing process in Murton?

A.

Key to a fast conveyancing transaction is to instruct a proactive solicitor. You should consider:

  • Do they use email as the preferred mode of communication?
