Q.

How do I get low cost conveyancing in North Yorkshire?

A.

Many solicitors advertise cheap conveyancing. Often extra fees will be included in small print. Excited buyers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid should also be included on a conveyancing quote. The online quote calculator can generate an accurate statement of the legal fees for the property you plan to buy.

Q.

Should you get searches for chancel liability? We are buying a maisonette near a 1500s church in North Yorkshire.

A.

Owners of property proximate to specific local church buildings may be required to subsidise repairs. This is referred to as chancel repair liability. Insurance may be available to protect a buyer should a North Yorkshire Parochial Church Council enforce liability.

Q.

If we plan to purchase in the parish of East Rounton, do we need a chancel search?

A.

Regardless of the North Yorkshire parish you are buying in, the conveyancing solicitor may suggest that a chancel search be ordered. In North Yorkshire's much older areas, chancel repair can be imposed on the current owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils have previously chosen not to do so, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.

Q.

I am going to purchase with Bradford and Bingley - what will I need to be aware of?

A.

Traditionally, almost all solicitors could perform legal work for both buyers and mortgage lenders. House buyers should consider that some lenders have limited the firms who can act for them, resulting in increased conveyancing costs for property buyers if a second property lawyer is required by their lender. We are able to act on behalf of many lenders, ensuring that an additional property lawyer will not be required to act for your lender.

Q.

Which particular searches does my North Yorkshire property lawyer order when carrying out the conveyancing for a North Yorkshire building?

A.

Standard conveyancing procedure will be to obtain Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal), Environment Search and Gypsum and perhaps less common searches, which might include Subsidence.

Q.

Can you confirm which North Yorkshire lenders you work with. Which panels are you on?

A.

The Homeward Legal group are able to work with all the major lenders assisting home buyers in North Yorkshire. Local mortgage lenders and brokers include Anglo Castles, 34 Zetland Rd, Loftus, Saltburn-By-The-Sea, TS13 4PW.

Q.

Should I select a property solicitor put forward by my local agent?

A.

If you choose a conveyancer referred through this route, you may have the advantage of the agent being able to induce a solicitor to wrap up the process as soon as possible, however, such referrals should be compared to other online or local firms, as the agent may recommend the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the best value for you.

Q.

When in the conveyancing process do you need to instruct a solicitor to act on our purchase?

A.

In simple terms, the sooner the better. Some groups 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.
