How do I get the best conveyancing rates in Nelson for a £424,000 house?


Numerous solicitors promote so-called cheap conveyancing, but extra costs will be included in the small print. Any extra charges listed in your solicitor's terms should be fair and clearly defined. Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


Please explain why purchase conveyancing work requires weeks?


The legal work required to buy or sell a property may be lengthy even in the best of circumstances. Some causes are out of the solicitor's control, Homeward Legal, however, seek to reduce their cost wherever possible by using fast search providers. There are numerous reasons for delay, such as waiting for responses from third parties.


I have found a plethora of manuals giving details on by passing the solicitor such as Bradshaw's Guide to Diy House Buying Selling and Conveyancing . Do we have to use property solicitor in Nelson ?


There is absolutely no argument why a home seller cant embark on the majority of the legal work without an experienced property lawyer in Nelson.

However, a property solicitor in Nelson is in charge of a large number of roles from such as chasing notices/share certificates and identifying the most appropriate searches some of which are more safely handled with appropriate a qualified professional. More importantly DIY conveyancers do not have applicable indemnity insurance that all firms and their solicitors always take out.


Will our conveyancer in Nelson inform me about the cost of the council tax on a Band H townhouse prior to exchange?


Your solicitor will contact the relevant Pendle local authority to find out the applicable council tax band and rates, which will then be detailed in the conveyancer's title report.

Up-to-date rates for properties in Nelson are set out in detail at the Pendle council website. At the time of writing on 26 December 2012 the rates are:

  • Band A - £1,051.00
  • Band B - £1,226.00
  • Band C - £1,401.00
  • Band D - £1,577.00
  • Band E - £1,927.00
  • Band F - £2,277.00
  • Band G - £2,628.00
  • Band H - £3,153.00


Is a Local Authority search a disbursement or fee?


Unfortunately, some firms frequently hide extra costs as necessary disbursements. It is not always obvious whether a cost is a fee or disbursement, and if it should be included. This charge is a disbursement not a fee, and is passed on at cost.


The current owner appears to have fitted ill-suited stone cladding on the flat which I think might possibly overstep Whitefield conservation area guidelines.


Your instructed conveyancing solicitor is required to identify whether the property is within a conservation area and whether any alterations have the essential consent. In the event that no authority consents can be provided your Nelson conveyancer will recommend the best alternative such as getting an indemnity insurance policy or requesting retrospective permission from the appropriate local authority.


How much time can conveyancing to sell a house take? We have a buyer ready.


For the majority of property purchasers, the length of time needed to buy or sell residential property is not wholly predictable, based on numerous considerations, for example, where management information is required. Our solicitors ensure every sale is undertaken as quickly as possible.


Should I get a chancel search? I am buying on the same road as church grounds in Nelson.


Property owners neighbouring church property in the locality must pay for repairs, where chancel repair liability exists. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a property, but insurance is available should an obligation to fund repairs be enforced. Church lands in this area where chancel liability may apply include St Bede, St John's Church Centre, St Mary and St Philip.
