Q.

We need a lawyer that offers cheap conveyancing. What do we need to check for?

A.

Numerous solicitors offer cheap conveyancing. However extra charges are frequently hidden in small print. Extra charges included in terms and conditions should be fair and clearly defined. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

How much can our conveyancing searches cost?

A.

With Homeward Legal's conveyancing service, you are expected to pay at most £249 for conveyancing searches. Commonly ordered searches include an environmental search and a local authority search.

Q.

Which specific property should the Partington conveyancer do when instructed on a Partington flat?

A.

The common conveyancing protocol is to obtain Local Authority, Drainage Search (Con29DW), Environment Search and Coal Mining Search (Con29M), and possibly less common searches, which may include a British Waterways Search.

Q.

What can we do to avoid paying stamp duty?

A.

We do not advise home buyers arrange any stamp duty scheme, because these schemes are costly and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later meaning that the full stamp duty amount will be payable, with potential fines.

Q.

Will we need a survey for our house purchase?

A.

It is strongly recommended that you order a RICS survey. There are many problems that affect a property, which a conveyancing solicitor will not report on. These can include chimney defects or insect infestation.

Q.

I have found a growing number books all about DIY conveyancing for example A Practical Approach to Commercial Conveyancing and Property. Do I actually need to instruct a Partington conveyancer ?

A.

There is no argument why a buyer cant take care of the legal work unaided.

That said, a Partington lawyer is in charge of a huge array of skilled tasks such as chasing outstanding papers or ongoing communication with the other sides solicitors most of which need training.

Moreover legal firms will obtain professional indemnity insurance to shield you from any losses you encounter.

Q.

Environmental searches are all well and good but in light of recent events for example the widespread flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England are they comfort enough to investigate enough about the evolving Partington flood risk?

A.

An experienced Partington property solicitor will consider get additional informative conveyancing searches (environmental) if the standard searches determine a any kind of Partington flooding risk.

People sometimes try to converse with a future neighbour to get added peace of mind if you are still worried.

Q.

First Active is going to be our mortgage lender - what do I need to know?

A.

Buyers should consider that some lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel'. This can mean increased legal costs for home buyers. We, fortunately, are able to act for the vast majority of mortgage lenders, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.
