"A solicitor team to depend on throughout your home move."
When buying, selling or remortgaging a house or flat in Penzance, you will need a conveyancing solicitor to handle legal work for you.
Homeward Legal's network of solicitors have a wealth of experience of conveyancing in Penzance and across Cornwall. Our highly proactive approach means we move you in the shortest possible time.
Our conveyancing solicitors handle all the legal work for your home move for a fixed fee.
We do not charge you any solicitors fees for buying and selling a house, if for any reason your Cornwall house move does not complete.
With Penzance and Cornwall experience, our solicitors will guide you through the whole of the conveyancing process.
No additional fees whatsoever.
The closest airport to Penzance is Penzance Airport (1 mile). Lands End Airport is 6 miles away. The nearest station to Penzance is Penzance.
The nearest hospital is West Cornwall Penzance.Q.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
