Q.

We are trying to find discount conveyancing. because we are on a limited budget.

A.

This catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many solicitors promote supposedly cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately extra charges will be included in the terms of engagement. Additional charges included in your solicitor's terms ought to be reasonable. They only apply in cases where your lawyer must complete work beyond standard conveyancing for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

Do you work with many lenders with Portslade offices?

A.

Homeward Legal have worked in conjunction with most lenders approved by the Council of Mortgage Lenders. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Portslade, such as Mortgage Medics, 98 Portland Rd, Hove, BN3 5DN, Webb Financial Services, 16 Langridge Dr, Portslade, Brighton, BN41 2JB, and Mortgage World, Westerman Complex/School Rd, Hove, BN3 5HX.

Q.

Does homewardlegal.co.uk look after auction conveyancing in Portslade?

A.

Our firm is highly knowledgeable with residential property auction procedures. Quite often unusual auction lots e. g. properties designated for mixed use, are purchased at auction and these require extenedprior to exchange. Solicitors therefore encourage

buyers to formally appoint a conveyancing solicitor before the actual auction to allow time for an investigation.

Thereafter, following the date of the auction, the lawyer must be fully prepared to complete the conveyancing inside 28 days as conventionally required by the terms of sale.

Q.

Please address how to avoid paying stamp duty land tax?

A.

Stamp duty avoidance should be treated with extreme caution in Portslade, because these schemes are highly expensive and can be very unlikely to succeed.

Q.

I have requested a quote from you. Might there be any additional fees?

A.

We do not hide any additional charges. Some firms only provide estimates disguised as quotes. The bill you receive on completion can be much greater.

Q.

Which property will the Portslade property solicitor do when carrying out the conveyancing for a Portslade home?

A.

The conventional conveyancing procedure is to get Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW), Environmental and Gypsum Mining and occasionally less common searches for instance Chancel.

Q.

When you are buying close to parish grounds in Portslade, would you advise that I get a chancel search?

A.

Repair costs resulting from chancel liability can total hundreds of thousands of pounds. Following a change in the law, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. Portslade church lands include Church of The Good Shepherd, St Andrew and St Nicolas.

Q.

In a few weeks I am shortly going to be moving out of our terraced home in Portslade to a bigger home in Avonmouth , what is the right point to instruct a home removal company?

A.

The best advice is to wait before making arrangements with a removal company until such time as all parties have settled an absolute home moving date which happens once contracts are signed.
