Are Homeward Legal geared up for complete within 28 days of exchange on the conveyancing of property auction properties in Ouston?


Yes - The legal team prepare legal packs for vendors and commonly handle the legal work for buyers and sellers at auction. It is very important for buyers to pick a SRA regulated conveyancing solicitor as fast as they can to allow sufficient time for a detailed review. well in advance of the day of bidding.

Immediately following the day of bidding, your conveyancing solicitor has to be able to concentrate on conclude the purchase inside 28 days as required by the standard auction conditions.


For our mortgage lender, we have chosen Bank of Scotland, what do we need to know?


A small number of lenders are now limiting the firms who can act for them, resulting in greater legal costs for property purchasers in cases where the solicitor cannot act for their lender, and another must also be instructed. We will act for many mortgage lenders.


I am buying a home, should we have searches carried out?


Conveyancing searches are a set of enquiries ordered by the purchaser's property lawyer through several agencies, such as a coal mining search. Searches are strongly recommended, however they consider issues with the property's title.


What can I do to bypass paying SDLT?


Stamp duty is due for purchases over 125,000 pounds. Homeward Legal do not recommend any form of stamp duty mitigation scheme. These schemes are costly and unreliable.
