Q.

How do we get the best rates for conveyancing in Penn for a £202,000 house?

A.

Numerous firms purport to offer cheap conveyancing, but additional costs are often hiding in the terms of engagement. This small print is often not read by buyers in a hurry. Additional fees included in the terms needs to be reasonable and be applicable solely where the lawyer must perform additional tasks on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Any disbursements must also be stated on your quote. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

The vendor has unfortunately fitted unfitting PVC windows to the flat which we think might possibly conflict with Vicarage Road conservation area guidelines.

A.

Wolverhampton local authority search (LLC1 - Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search) carried out by your Penn conveyancing solicitor during the conveyancing process will see the existence of the appropriate council approval for any alterations to the property. In the event that no suitable consents be in evidence, the solicitor will give you professional advice on the best alternative e.g. getting covered by an indemnity insurance or requesting retrospective approval.

Q.

We have taken out a quote from you. May there be any extra fees?

A.

Homeward Legal's solicitors will never charge any extra, hidden charges under any circumstances. Some websites offer unrealistically low 'quotes' which are in fact estimates. You may face a much greater total fee when you have completed.

Q.

Does Homeward Legal advise on the legal conveyancing of auction properties in Penn?

A.

We are familiar with bidders at auction. Quite often unusually constructed buildings like live work flats, are purchased in auctions and these necessitate extended exploration. Lawyers therefore advocate that purchasers instruct a CQS conveyancing solicitor well before the date of the auction to allow time for a detailed investigation of the sellers documents.

Thereafter, following the property auction date a lawyer is able to concentrate on finish the transaction within 28 days as conventionally required by the auction conditions.

Q.

How much would the charges for my searches be?

A.

With Homeward Legal, you will be charged at most £249 for conveyancing searches. Searches are disbursements paid to a third party.

Q.

Should we instruct the lawyer used by our estate agent in Gedling?

A.

If you instruct a solicitor through this route, you may have the advantage of the agent being able to persuade a solicitor to wrap up the process as soon as possible. Such referrals should be compared to other online or local firms, as the agent may prefer to suggest whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the most appropriate choice.

Q.

Do you advise that I get a chancel search? I am buying a property in Penn.

A.

Chancel liability repair costs can run into £100,000s, which owners of affected property will be compelled to pay on demand to the Penn Church council. A chancel search is used to confirm whether such a liability exists. Liability is more common in some parts of the country. A conveyancing solicitor will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary, and recommend suitable insurance. Church properties in the local area where a chancel search may be necessary include Holy Trinity and St.Bartholomew.

Q.

We are buying at auction and would like organise a fast purchase, what can we do to speed up our conveyancing process?

A.

Firstly, finding a proactive lawyer is key a fast completion. There are a range of things you, as the purchaser, can also do, such as, requesting status updates from the lawyer regularly, completing all forms as soon as possible and ordering a property survey early in the transaction.
