Q.

How do we get the best rates for conveyancing for a £462,000 property?

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this matter catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many conveyancers promote theoretically cheap conveyancing, however extra fees are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms, left unread by preoccupied buyers A conveyancing quote ought to list applicable disbursements. Extra charges ought to be fair and reasonable and be applicable solely where the conveyancer is required to complete extra work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

Please explain why sale conveyancing legal work takes so long?

A.

The legal work required to buy or sell a property may be obstructed. Homeward Legal understand that these can cause considerable stress and strive to curtail their cost where viable.

Q.

If I plan to purchase in the parish of Tilston, do we need a chancel search?

A.

Whichever Nantwich parish in which you are purchasing, a conveyancer could recommend a chancel search. Although some parish councils have opted to exact chancel repairs on the current owners of land subject to chancel liability, there is no way to be certain that a parish where chancel repair fees have not been paid previously will remain liability-free for new owners, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.

Q.

National Counties Building Society will be our lender, what do I need to be aware of?

A.

Some lenders are now limiting the firms who can act for them, resulting in higher legal costs for property buyers in cases where the preferred solicitor cannot act for their lender, and another must also be instructed. Homeward Legal are able to act for many lenders in the UK so that the buyer will not have to pay your lender's conveyancing fees.

Q.

Do your panel of solicitors advise on property auction conveyancing in Nantwich?

A.

Yes - our property solicitors regularly do the legal work for buyers and sellers at auction. Our specialist solicitors and licensed conveyancers have previously been instructed by many vendors at national and local property auctions that, amongst others, include Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London, Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.

Traditionally unusually constructed lots e. g. un-mortgageable properties are listed at property auctions which tend to require added inquiries. Homeward Legal therefore suggest purchasers to choose an experienced conveyancing company well before the auction day to allow time for a full investigation of the legal papers for the lot. Subsequently, immediately after the auction day arrives, your lawyer has to be geared up to get through the legal side of things in 28 days as typically required by the terms of sale.

Q.

What will a Nantwich conveyancing solicitor do when the house we am buying is inside a registered conservation area and has ugly cladding added?

A.

Cheshire East local authority search (LLC1 - Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search) conducted by your Nantwich conveyancing solicitor during the conveyancing process will see if the Nantwich property a conservation area and any evidence of local authority approval for alterations will be asked for.

Q.

How much is the council tax on a period mid-terrace Band D house in Nantwich?

A.

  • Band A - £975.00

  • Band E - £1,788.00
  • Band F - £2,113.00

Q.

Doing ones own conveyancing without the aid of a Nantwich conveyancing solicitor appears to be becoming possible as a buyer of a house but would it actually be reckless ?

A.

Technically there are no reasons at all why you shouldn't engage in the bulk of the legal and technical work yourself.

That said, a property solicitor takes care of a huge array of assignments e.g. chasing retention releases and interpreting the lease many of which require adequate training.
