Q.

We are looking for a property lawyer that offers cheap conveyancing. Can you assist?

A.

This issue catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many firms offer cheap conveyancing quotes. However extra costs are often hiding in small print. Any disbursements ought to be defined on a quote Any fees should be reasonable and clear and be applicable solely where your conveyancer must complete unanticipated additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

What amount of time may the legal work to purchase a home often take, on average? I am purchasing a property in Pickering.

A.

For the majority of buyers and sellers, the length of time taken to transfer a home does vary, with reference to a handful of legal considerations which may include whether a mortgage is involved. Eight to twelve weeks is the industry-wide average, whereas our solicitors work for a deadline of six weeks.

Q.

Environmental searches are compiled from archived data but when one considers recent events e g the serious flooding in York and across Yorkshire, are they the ideal way to confirm sufficient information about the ever changing local Pickering flood risk?

A.

Property environmental searches carried out by your lawyer in Pickering should also include the more rigorous flood search if the risk warrants it.

You could also try to converse with a neighbour to get additional assurance if you are still worried.

Q.

Is your panel of solicitors set up to move quickly on the legal conveyancing of property auction properties in Pickering?

A.

Our CQS solicitors commonly carry out work for bidders at auction. We tend to recommend bidders to select a residential conveyancing lawyer well before the auction day to allow enough time for a title report of the documents.

Immediately following the auction, a lawyer should be focused on conclude the conveyancing process in 28 days as typically required by the terms of sale.

Q.

Which local factors can contaminate land in Pickering. Are these comprehensively investigated?

A.

Property in Pickering could be contaminated by a range of factors caused by man and by nature, like proximity to scrap yards and air pollution. An environmental search will give more information.

Q.

In about five weeks we are intending to be moving out of our detached property on the outskirts of Pickering into a home in Knaresborough . At what stage to instruct a house removal firm?

A.

Most solicitors tend to recommend that home vendors hold off organising removals until after exchange of contracts as in advance of this an actual home moving date will not have been set. For a local Yorkshire, North Riding firm Andrews Removals Ltd, 25 Swainsea Dr, Pickering, YO18 8PR Phone: 01751 474900.

Q.

Is there a danger that our offer will be gazumped?

A.

This describes when an offer is accepted but then rejected by the house seller, opting instead for a greater offer. Because acceptance of an offer is not binding on the seller until exchange of contracts, there is a chance of gazumping. Consider instructing your conveyancing solicitor as soon as possible to reduce the chance of your offer being gazumped.

Q.

We are buying with Lloyds TSB - what do I need to check?

A.

Some lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel'. For buyers, this can result in significantly increased conveyancing costs. Homeward Legal, though, will act for all major mortgage lenders to ensure that you will not need to pay any additional legal fees to your lender's solicitor.
