Q.

We are looking for low cost conveyancing. Will I get a quote or and estimate?

A.

Many firms purport to offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Often additional fees will be included in the small print. Fees should be fair and reasonable. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Is there anything we are supposed to do to make our Penzance conveyancing faster?

A.

Essential to moving faster is to use a proactive conveyancer. Beyond that, there are various jobs you as the buyer can also do to speed up your conveyancing. These include:

  • pushing the conveyancer to begin enquiries as soon as possible
  • answering any queries raised by the conveyancer as soon as possible
  • confirming your mortgage offer

Q.

Would acquiring a home buyers survey be a good idea if we are buying a property, irrespective of its condition?

A.

We firmly recommend that property purchasers arrange a building survey. A wide range of issues will impact a property, for example insect infestation, and these will not be addressed by your conveyancing solicitor.

Q.

We really need to complete on the conveyancing process on a leasehold flat rapidly, are you fast solicitors in Penzance ?

A.

All too often conveyancers are extremely apathetic which brings even more aggravation to the home conveyancing process.

Our approach is to employ modern IT and local authority and land registry integrated systems . More importantly , we always provide you with a chosen solicitor practiced at communicate up and down the chain .

Q.

My partner and I are buying in Penzance. How can we establish whether the residence is in a conservation area?

A.

With 9000 areas of conservation throughout the country, the areas near or within Penzance will include a range of areas of historical or architectural value designated as protected. A property solicitor will address the consequences of purchasing property in a conservation area and offer more information.

Q.

What can I do to avoid paying SDLT rates?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax is due for property sold for over 125,000 pounds. Homeward Legal do not advise purchasers expose their finances to any stamp duty scheme. These schemes are costly and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later. There have been a range of government-sponsored schemes, such as relief for buyers in 'disadvantaged areas', and your solicitor will advise if these may apply.

Q.

We are purchasing a property in Constantine. Are we advised to get a chancel search?

A.

Your solicitor responsible for your move might recommend a chancel search, whichever parish where the building being bought is located. In Penzance's much older areas, chancel repair dues can be collected on new owners of a building where parish councils may have spared previous owners or tenants. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.

Q.

In Penzance, is soil remediation of contaminated property an option?

A.

A degree of remediation can often be possible, and a local provider such as Celtic Turf, Carnyorth, St. Just, Penzance, TR19 7QD may be able to provide more detail.
