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.

When in the process should I get a conveyancer in Pickering?

A.

In the majority of situations, the sooner you instruct a firm, the better, as there are several tasks which may be carried out very early in the process. Instructing a firm early for a purchase can mean that your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed, or, if you are selling a property, paperwork can be prepared, even before a buyer is found.

Q.

When you are buying a Pickering flat near a church, do you recommend that we get a chancel liability search?

A.

The outcome of a landmark case 10 years ago reaffirmed that 'lay rectors' of property must fund church repairs. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a property, but insurance is available should an obligation to fund repairs be enforced. Church of England properties in the local area where chancel liability may apply include St Peter & St Paul, Parish Church.

A.

Q.

For a fast conveyancing process on the purchase of a £828,000 property, what should we organise to accelerate our move?

A.

Essential to a fast conveyancing transaction is to employing a experienced solicitor. When finding a suitable a solicitor, ask yourself the following: Do they offer 'instant' online quotes? Which communication methods do they use? Days can be wasted waiting for letters in the post which could be emailed or faxed. Will they order searches immediately?

Q.

Could my conveyancing take into account any hidden costs?

A.

Our solicitors will not charge any extra, hidden fees. A Homeward Legal conveyancing quote is an accurate price the legal expenses for your transaction.

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.
