Q.

We are looking for the cheapest conveyancing quote. Will I get a quote or and estimate?

A.

Confusion over this matter catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many firms offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra fees can inflate your final bill. Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Should we get a chancel search if I am buying in the parish of Oldridge, near Paignton?

A.

Your solicitor could advise that a chancel search is ordered. Although some Parochial Church Councils have taken the decision to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of affected property, a solicitor cannot state with certainty that a parish which has not been subject to chancel liability in the past will not continue to be so. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.

Q.

What will the council tax cost on a residential Band H apartment in Paignton?

A.

Your pertinent band will commonly be highlighted within the conveyancing report on title, and by the local council. The latest tax charges for Paignton are listed at the Torbay council site. At the time of authoring, 10 November 2012, rates are:

  • Band A - £999.00
    >
  • Band B - £1,166.00
  • Band C - £1,332.00
  • Band D - £1,499.00
  • Band E - £1,832.00
  • Band F - £2,165.00
  • Band G - £2,498.00
  • Band H - £2,998.00

Q.

What amount of time should the legal work to sell a house require?

A.

The number of weeks required to sell or purchase a residence is not wholly predictable, according to a handful of legal considerations, for example, if you plan to take out a mortgage. Nationally, the average is up to twelve weeks, whereas our solicitors take a more proactive attitude, pushing a transaction to complete within 8 weeks if possible.

Q.

Is Homeward Legal geared up for 28 day completions on the legal conveyancing of auction properties in Paignton?

A.

Our team are auction specialists and frequently act for buyers at auction. We often advocate auction buyers to formally instruct a SRA regulated conveyancing firm well before the actual auction to allow time for a detailed report of the auction pack.

Subsequently, immediately after the auction day a lawyer will be prepared for conclude the legal side of things in 28 days after exchange of contracts, a requirement of terms of sale.

Q.

Might it be an unrealistic idea to enact the legal conveyancing process ourselves.

A.

Hypothetically there is absolutely no argument why a buyer cant look after the legal process on your own.

In reality however, a conveyancer is familiar with a long list of functions e.g. stock transfer forms or registering the new title owner which require a skilled professional.

Q.

I am buying a 1930s building in one of the Paignton conservation area, how do I find data in regards to the standard of upkeep?

A.

English Heritage have created records on the state of repair of conservation areas in addition to the vulnerability. Conservation areas are created by the local authority (Torbay) who preside over conservation area concerns from street furniture to ugly shop fronts.

Q.

We have requested a conveyancing quote from you. Are there any additional fees?

A.

No. Homeward Legal do not hide any hidden extra fees whatsoever. Be aware that some solicitor do not give accurate quotes, only estimates, which could be totally different to your final invoice.
