Q.

What are the best conveyancing rates for a £186,000 property?

A.

This issue catches out many sellers and buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many conveyancers offer theoretically cheap conveyancing. However extra fees are frequently hidden in the terms, left unregarded by busy sellers and buyers Additional costs which are listed in your solicitor's terms should be clearly defined. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

We plan to purchase a home in the parish of Mickleton. Will it be necessary to get a chancel search?

A.

Whether you are buying a building in Redland or elsewhere in the county, the solicitor is likely to recommend that a chancel search be ordered. In Redland's much older areas, chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on new owners of a building where Parochial Church Councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. For property in the parish of Mickleton, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

How do you determine stamp duty, what should it be on a £613000 property?

The Stamp Duty you pay will rely on the value of the house or flat. It will be £24520 on a £613000 property.*

No. Homeward Legal's solicitors do not charge any hidden extra costs whatsoever. Your conveyancing quote is an single, accurate fee the legal expenses for your move.

Q.

Does your solicitors company get involved in the legal conveyancing of auction properties in Redland?

A.

Homeward Legal is highly experienced with property auction conveyancing. Regularly unusually constructed lots for example thatched cottages, are bought at property auctions and these demand additional inquiries by the conveyancing lawyer. Homeward Legal therefore strongly encourage auction buyers to select their solicitor well before the property auction so there is time for a full report of the lot. After the auction, a property lawyer has to be geared up to complete the conveyancing process in 28 days after exchange, a requirement of terms of sale.

Q.

For fast conveyancing to buy a £ 319,000 property, what can we do to speed up the transaction?

A.

It is a truism that contacting a communicative property lawyer is the key to fast Redland conveyancing. There are, in addition, numerous things you as the buyer could do to speed up the legal work. These include:

  • quickly answering your property lawyer's questions
  • organising your finances
  • encouraging your property lawyer to carry out searches promptly

Q.

Our lender is Santander, is there anything we need to know?

A.

Some lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel', which may result in increased conveyancing costs for house purchasers. Homeward Legal, though, can act on behalf of the vast majority of lenders.
