Q.

How do I get the best rates for conveyancing for a £489,000 property?

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this topic affects many homeowners who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process, and many firms claim to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing'. However additional costs may increase your final invoice. Your Normanton conveyancing quote must also state third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid. Extra costs needs to be fair. They be applicable solely where your conveyancer must perform additional tasks , 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.

When in the conveyancing process should you find a conveyancer to handle our transaction?

A.

In the vast majority of cases, the faster you instruct the better, as there are a number of tasks which may be carried out straight away. Some sources recommend postponing instruction until an offer has been firmly agreed, but you will then be at a serious disadvantage in the event of a contract race, or buyer eager to move quickly.

Q.

If I am purchasing near land owned by the church in Normanton, is it necessary that I get a chancel search?

A.

Chancel liability can require some property owners to contribute towards maintenance of a church in the area. Indemnity policies can be arranged if chancel liability is likely to be enforced. Church of England properties in the area where a chancel search may be appropriate include All Saints.

Q.

How much is the council tax on a residential end of terrace property in Normanton?

A.

In most cases a conveyancing report on title will cover the appropriate Wakefield council tax band. Correct charges for Normanton are set out on the Wakefield council site. At the time of writing, 15/06/2012, the different rates are:

  • Band A - £872.00
  • Band B - £1,017.00
  • Band C - £1,162.00
  • Band D - £1,308.00
  • Band E - £1,598.00
  • Band F - £1,889.00
  • Band G - £2,179.00
  • Band H - £2,615.00

Q.

How much time does the conveyancing process often require, on average? We are buying in Normanton.

A.

In general, the amount of time required to sell or purchase a home is not wholly predictable, based on a broad set of considerations which can include whether the property is leasehold. Homeward Legal solicitors work hard to ensure every purchase is handled as fast as possible, without compromising on service.

Q.

How many mortgage lenders in Normanton do you work with?

Q.

Will your conveyancing solicitor in Normanton conduct personal or official searches on my home purchase?

A.

Your property solicitor will brief you regarding the most appropriate course of action, depending on issues like local authority turnaround times. If personal searches are used, your conveyancing solicitor might perhaps look for a search agent such as ISC Searches, 53 Ash Crescent, Wakefield, West Yorkshire, WF3 4NY Tel: 07841212369 Fax: 01924872340
