Q.

How do we find the best rates for conveyancing for a £682,000 residence?

A.

This catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes. Often additional charges can inflate your solicitor's invoice.

Q.

Do I need to get searches for chancel liability? We are buying in Parson Cross.

A.

The result of Aston Cantlow (PCC) v Wallbank confirmed that chancel repair liability could be enforced. Insurance may be available to protect a buyer should a Parson Cross Parochial Church Council enforce liability. Church properties in Parson Cross include St Bernard and St Cecilia & St Bernard.

Q.

How common is gazumping?

A.

Gazumping occurs when a house seller acknowledges an offer, only to later reject it in favour of a second buyer's offer. Though gazumping is uncommon when property prices are falling, there is still a danger. To reduce the likelihood of being gazumped, consider instructing your property solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer.

Q.

Does your firm specialise the conveyancing for auction properties in Parson Cross?

A.

We are highly knowledgeable with bidders at auction. Very often hard to value lots like property that cannot be insured, are purchased at auction which tend to require greater review. Lawyers therefore recommend that buyers appoint a conveyancing lawyer well in advance of the auction so there is time for a full review of the auction legal papers.

Immediately following the actual auction, a lawyer will need to be prepared for finish all of the legal work in less than 28 days as usually required by the conditions of sale.

Q.

First Active is our mortgage lender, what do we need to check?

A.

Purchasers need to be aware that, in some cases, lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel'. This can mean increased legal costs for home buyers. Homeward Legal can act on behalf of many CML-approved lenders, ensuring that an additional lawyer will not be required to act for your lender.
