Q.

What will the overall charge be on the sale of a £78,000 house? I need to find low cost conveyancing in Repton.

A.

Many online and high street conveyancers claim to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing. Often extra fees are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms. Your quote should list the disbursements to be paid. Additional charges listed in the small print should be clearly defined and be applicable solely where your solicitor is required to complete extra work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

Our agent has referred a conveyancing solicitor. Must I instruct them?

A.

Many estate agents have arrangements with solicitors where they refer clients. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, there is a risk that the agent may suggest the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.

Q.

My flatmate and I am hopefully going to sell our freehold apartment at an auction, can you get us fast property lawyers in Repton ?

A.

Generally Repton conveyancing lawyers are extremely slow bringing further pressure to the house selling process.

Homeward Legal only work with conveyancing property lawyers which are focused on speed and endeavour to communicate to the whole buyer and seller chain . Also our conveyancing property lawyers are actually chosen because they always employ speed focused practice management and information technology systems to exchange on your sale to your ideal move date.

Q.

Is a home buyers survey necessary when we are buying a house or flat, regardless of its age?

A.

Homeward Legal firmly recommend that you instruct a home surveyor to perform a survey. A range issues have a negative impact on a property, such as severe weathering or blocked drains, and issues such as these are not likely to be investigated as part of the conveyancing itself.

Q.

Apparently, manganese (Mn) soil contamination may be an issue in Repton. Can you advise?

A.

Metal contamination may have occurred throughout Repton, but an plot will be marked as 'contaminated land' if the risk to human life is unacceptable. Environment search results will factor contaminants, including metals and others such as chlorinated solvents and groundwater contamination.

Q.

If I am buying a property close to an ecclesiastical parish in Repton, is it necessary that we get a search for chancel liability?

A.

The result of Aston Cantlow (PCC) v Wallbank reaffirmed that 'lay rectors' of property must cover the cost of church repairs. A chancel search will confirm whether liability for Repton properties is likely to exist. The solicitor handling your conveyancing will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate. Repton church lands which may give rise to chancel liability include St Wystan's Church.

Q.

How much can my searches cost?

A.

Searches in Repton ranges in cost, depending on the searches required by your lender. Searches are disbursements, and will be charged at cost.

Q.

Is homewardlegal.co.uk set up to move fast on the conveyancing of auction properties in Repton?

A.

The legal team deal with auctions throughout the UK and commonly take instructions from sellers at auction. It is crucial for buyers to decide on a local lawyer as soon as possible for a title report of the legal documents well in advance of the day of the auction.

Subsequently, following the day of the auction, your lawyer is geared up to get through the legal process in under 28 days after exchange of contracts as typically required by the auction conditions.
