Q.

I need low cost conveyancing. What should be watch out for?

A.

Many online and high street solicitors promote theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing', however additional fees may increase the final bill. Extra costs should be fair and reasonable. A conveyancing quote must also state any disbursements to be paid.

Q.

Barclays Bank is going to be our lender - what will we need to know?

A.

Buyers in Queenborough should be aware that some lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel'. For buyers, this can result in significantly higher conveyancing costs. Homeward Legal will act on behalf of most CML-approved lenders.

Q.

Do I need to get a chancel search? We are buying a residence in Queenborough.

A.

Chancel liability can require property owners to contribute towards the cost of repairs to a church in the area. A number of sources are used to identify liability, including county histories. Queenborough ecclesiastical properties include Holy Trinity.

Q.

I am intending to purchase a home in Kingston. Is a chancel search compulsory?

A.

The solicitor should confirm that a chancel search be taken out, irrespective of the parish where the residence being bought is found. Through some Parochial Church Councils have decided to charge chancel repairs on current owners of affected property, there is no guarantee that a parish which has not imposed liability will not be so in future, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Q.

Which property conveyancing searches will my lawyer in Queenborough carry out on a Queenborough house?

A.

Normal conveyancing protocol will be to get the following Local Authority Search, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal), Environmental and Coal Mining Search (Con29M) as well as any area-specific searches, which might include Utilities report.

Q.

What amount of time may be budgeted for the conveyancing process take, on average?

A.

In general, the time taken to transact a property will vary. This is influenced by several concerns. These could include where management information is required. 8 to 12 weeks is the average for many firms, we however drive the process forwards, completing within eight weeks.
