Q.

How do we find a cheap solicitor for purchasing a share of freehold house?

A.

Both high-street and online solicitors advertise theoretically cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately extra fees may be added into the terms and conditions. Any additional costs which are listed in the small print should be clearly defined. They be applied only where the lawyer must perform additional tasks for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The conveyancing quote should also state third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid.Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Direct Line Mortgages is our mortgage lender - what do we need to check?

A.

Buyers in Pocklington need to be aware that some lenders have limited the firms who can act for them. This can mean increased legal costs for house purchasers. Homeward Legal, however, can act on behalf of most mortgage lenders to ensure that you will not need to pay legal costs to your lender's solicitor.

Q.

What will the council tax cost me for a period Band A maisonette in Pocklington?

A.

Q.

Will the conveyancing fees take into account any additional charges?

A.

No. Homeward Legal do not hide any extra, hidden charges. Your conveyancing quote is an accurate price the legal expenses for your transaction.

Q.

How is Pocklington contaminated land investigated when buying?

A.

Land in Pocklington will be contaminated by a range of factors caused by man and by nature, and an environmental search should reveal whether a specific plot of land can be impacted by contaminants in the region including pollution incidents or other land contamination. Burnby Lane Landfill, Pocklington, YO42 is one such potential source of contamination.

Q.

When I am buying a property near a priory built in the 1400s in Pocklington, is it recommended that we get a chancel liability search?

A.

There are over 15,000 parishes in the UK. Property owners within some of these may be required to contribute towards the repair of a local church. Some names or words such as 'glebe' give an indication of a property's history, and thus whether chancel liability may apply. Churches in the area include All Saints.

Q.

What is the authority that is obliged for overseeing the condition of neglect the conservation areas in Pocklington?

A.

Conservation areas in Pocklington are set up by East Riding of Yorkshire who maintain the state of the area including things like vacant buildings, satellite dishes and paths and footpaths. Following a campaign, English Heritage administer a detailed list in relation to the state of conservation areas as well as the vulnerability.

Q.

How usual is gazumping?

A.

This happens when a property seller accepts a purchaser's offer, only to reject it, opting for a higher offer. The chance of getting gazumped is present in any transaction. Instructing a fast, efficient solicitor as soon as possible should help to mitigate this risk.
