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.

How soon is it wise to instruct a solicitor?

A.

If you choose a conveyancing solicitor with 'no move, no fee' protection, the earlier in the process you can instruct a conveyancing solicitor, the better, as the legal work can commence very early in the process. A number of sources suggest holding off instruction until an offer is accepted, but you will then be at a serious disadvantage in the event of a contract race, or buyer eager to move quickly.

Q.

As a result of the widespread flooding in Sept 2012 in South West England we are thinking that property environmental searches aren't thorough enough?

A.

Conveyancing searches conducted by your Penzance solicitor should also include a far more in depth search (Landmark) if it is felt necessary.

In addition, you could get in touch with a local resident to gain further peace of mind.

Q.

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

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.

Do Homeward Legal deal with the conveyancing for residential property auction properties in Penzance?

A.

Yes - We are highly knowledgeable with auction buyers and sellers. We strongly recommend purchasers to formally instruct an auction experienced property lawyer well in advance of the auction day to allow for a title report of the sellers documents. Immediately following the auction, a conveyancing solicitor must be fully prepared to get through the purchase legal work in less than 28 days as typically required by the conditions of sale.

Q.

How can my Penzance lawyer report back on the risk and history of flooding in the Penzance area?

A.

Your property lawyer makes an application for environmental searches that incorporate Penzance area flood risk data. Additionally the conveyancing solicitor in Penzance may advocate a significantly more involved flood search.

Q.

The residence in Penzance being bought is on a ex-industrial use land. What should we do regarding tungsten (W) soil contamination?

A.

Penzance industry, agriculture and the natural environment can cause soil contamination. Also considering issues such as ammonia, contaminants affecting Penzance property will be factored into an environmental search.

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.
