Q.

We are looking for a cheap solicitor for purchasing a home. Can you assist?

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this matter catches out many buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many solicitors promote theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional costs may be added into the solicitor's terms of engagement. Any disbursements should also be included on a conveyancing quote Any additional charges should be fair and reasonable.

Q.

Do we need a chancel search? We are buying a house on the same street as a church constructed around the 16th Century in Norfolk Broads.

A.

Some owners in Norfolk Broads can be required to fund maintenance of nearby church land. A chancel search will confirm whether liability for Norfolk Broads properties is likely to exist. A conveyancing solicitor will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary, and recommend suitable insurance.

Q.

What does 'gazumping' actually mean?

A.

The practice of rejecting an offer which has been accepted once another buyer makes a bigger offer is called gazumping. Although gazumping is less common in a declining market, there will always be a risk. Instructing a proactive solicitor early should help to mitigate this risk.

Q.

Are the any designated conservation areas in Norfolk Broads likely to affect us?

A.

Conservation areas qualify streets and neighbourhoods of historical or architectural value. Your property solicitor will be able to provide more details and discuss the relevant responsibilities.

Q.

We intend to sell our freehold residence at a local property auction next month, will your firm assign fast Norfolk Broads conveyancing solicitors ?

A.

We maintain that our panel of speed focused CQS solicitors , by default, assume a highly take charge method to carrying out the legal process for home movers Homeward Legals solicitors will always attempt to communicate through the whole of the home buyer and seller chain and use the latest local authority and land registry integrated and information technology systems to complete on the property sale with minimal stress.

Q.

For our lender, we have chosen Swansea Building Society, what do I need to be aware of?

A.

Over the last two years, some lenders have reduced the number of firms able to act for them. We are able to act for most mortgage lenders so that the buyer will not have to pay the lender's costs.

Q.

What can conveyancing searches usually cost?

A.

The cost of conveyancing searches appreciably varies, depending on the searches chosen. They are charged 'at cost'.

Q.

Will my assigned conveyancing solicitor in Norfolk Broads tell me about the amount to be paid of council tax for a Band B house before exchanging contracts?
