Q.

There are lots of 'cheap' offers, but how do we find a good one? I am trying to find discount conveyancing.

A.

Confusion over this point affects many home owners who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process. Many property lawyers promote theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately extra charges are frequently hidden in the small print. Any additional fees should be reasonable. Applicable disbursements should be included on any quote for conveyancing in PrestwichHomeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

What do conveyancing searches refer to?

A.

Searches are a typical pack of enquiries performed on behalf of the party intending to buy the property, and will only cover issues with the property's title.

Q.

Could the property legal fees incorporate any hidden fees?

A.

Homeward Legal do not charge any hidden fees to buy or sell a property. Be aware that some websites offer unrealistically low 'quotes' which are in fact estimates, which could be totally different to your final invoice.

Q.

When you are purchasing by a rectory manor in Prestwich, will I need to get a chancel search?

A.

Chancel repair liability can require some property owners to contribute towards the cost of upkeep of nearby church land. After the passing of an Act in 2002, interest

over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. Church of England properties in the area which may give rise to chancel liability include St Andrew's Church, St Gabriel, St Hilda and St Margaret.

Q.

For a fast conveyancing process on the purchase of a £290,000 home, what do we need to aim for?

A.

Finding a proactive, diligent solicitor is the key to moving faster. There are several things you as the purchaser can also do, such as, promptly answering your solicitor's questions (by email if possible), calling or emailing the solicitor, and chase them if you suspect any delays and arranging your mortgage offer.

Q.

Can I hold off paying out for stamp duty to the Revenue?

A.

We strongly advise against any form of stamp duty reduction scheme. These schemes are costly and very risky. There have been a range of legitimate initiatives, however, such as disadvantaged area relief. A conveyancing solicitor should confirm whether you are eligible.

Q.

I am hoping to be moving from our terraced property in Prestwich to our next home in Oldham , what is the best point to choose a house removal firm?

A.

Best practice is to hold off a removal firm until you have settled a home moving date which occurs after final contracts are signed.

Q.

DIY conveyancing without the help of a conveyancing solicitor in Prestwich appears to be becoming possible when buying a house. Would it be viable ?

A.

There are no arguments why a buyer cannot conduct majority of the conveyancing without the help of a trained property solicitor in Prestwich.

That said, a conveyancer in Prestwich typically handles a significant number of roles from such as chasing notices/share certificates and locating planning docs some of which are more safely handled with appropriate a qualified solicitor. Fundamentally have a go conveyancers do not have the applicable cover which all firms and their solicitors are liable to be required to pay for.
