Q.

I am looking for a fixed rate conveyancing quote. How do we get a quote?

A.

Many online and high street firms promote cheap conveyancing, but additional costs are often hiding in the small print which unwary homeowners fail to check. Any extra costs listed in terms and conditions should be reasonable. They only apply in cases where your conveyancer is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The conveyancing quote should also clearly state any disbursements.The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.

My wife and I are buying in Newark, and need to know if there are many conservation areas.

A.

These areas secure regions of architectural merit. The benefits of such restrictions will include protection for parks and green spaces, but they may impose liability on a buyer for unauthorised alterations made by previous owners.

Q.

What particular conveyancing searches does a Newark conveyancing solicitor apply for a Newark home?

A.

Normal legal protocol will be to get Local Authority, Drainage Search (Con29DW or personal), Environmental and Gypsum Mining and, depending on certain criteria, special local Newark searches, which may include a Contaminated land Search.

Q.

My estate agent has referred a law firm that they have used before. Do I need to use this solicitor?

A.

Many estate agents will have a referral arrangement with solicitors where they refer conveyancing clients to them. However, if they are paid a referral fee, the agent may recommend whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the most suitable for you.

Q.

When should you find a conveyancing solicitor?

A.

If you use a firm offering a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, the sooner the better. Some suggest holding off instruction until an offer has been firmly agreed, but delays can risk the other side pulling out, particularly in uncertain market conditions.

Q.

Will the report on title prepared by the solicitor in Newark report back on the relevant rates of council tax for a property prior to completion?

A.

Your lawyer will approach the local council to enquire about the latest council tax rates, which should subsequently be detailed in the conveyancer's title report. The correct charges for Newark are published online at the local authority site.

Q.

Would you recommend making the effort to avoid paying HMRC stamp duty?

A.

Stamp duty reduction scheme must be treated with caution by purchasers in Newark, as such schemes are expensive and , if the scheme fails, you may be charged a penalty of up to 100% of the stamp duty amount owed.

Q.

Is an online ID fee a fee or a disbursement?

A.

Each fee and disbursement should be identified on a quote. This cost is a fee not a disbursement. It should be included in your quote.
