Q.

We need discount conveyancing. What do I need to check for?

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many buyers and sellers paying out more than they anticipated in the end. Many firms purport to offer cheap conveyancing quotes. Often additional charges are often hiding in the terms of engagement that buyers and sellers often do not check. The disbursements to be paid ought to be listed on the quote Any additional costs should be fair. They only apply to matters if the conveyancer is required to complete unexpected extra work , 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.

In a few weeks I am looking to move out of our semi detached house just outside New Farnley to a bigger property in Morley , what is the optimum stage to select a home removal firm?

Q.

Is a house survey advisable when we are purchasing a property in New Farnley?

A.

It is heavily suggested that home buyers book a house surveyor to perform a survey. There are a wide range of problems which affect a property, that will not be addressed during the conveyancing process, such as ground movement and severe weathering.

Q.

For a fast conveyancing transaction on the purchase of a £242,000 property, how can we speed things up?

A.

Key to a fast transaction is to employing a proactive and experienced solicitor. There are numerous things you, as the purchaser, can do to get moving sooner. These include:

  • clarifying your mortgage lender's requirements
  • calling or emailing the solicitor, and chase them if you suspect any delays
  • responding to your solicitor by phone, fax or email wherever possible

Q.

Will HS2 affect Studley properties?

A.

Yes. High Speed Two will likely impact numerous properties in Studley. A Local Authority search should cover a range of planning issues which could impact a property, but other searches are available which cover a wider radius around the route, and give more detail.

Q.

How do we protect ourselves from gazumping?

A.

This describes when a seller accepts one purchaser's offer and later rejects it. Instead, they then go for a second buyer's offer. The risk of gazumping exists for almost any purchase. To reduce the likelihood of being gazumped, consider instructing your solicitor early.

Q.

What does a New Farnley conveyancing solicitor do when the property we are buying is inside the boundary of a conservation area and has unsanctioned artificial stone cladding fitted?

A.

Your property lawyer is required to see whether the property is affected by a conservation area, and if so, whether any alterations have the necessary consents from the local council. If no appropriate consents be produced the solicitor will give you professional advice on all options like taking out an indemnity insurance policy or getting retrospective permission from the appropriate local authority.
