Q.

We are looking for the cheapest conveyancing solicitors. Can you assist?

A.

Confusion over this matter catches out many property buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many conveyancers advertise theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. However additional costs are frequently hidden in the terms of engagement.

Q.

Is there anything we are supposed to do to make our Rhiwbina conveyancing faster?

A.

Instructing a proactive, diligent lawyer is essential to a faster move. You should consider:

  • Was there a delay delivering a quote?
  • Are phone, fax and email their preferred methods of contact
  • Will they work on a 'no sale, no fee' basis?

Q.

How do we protect ourselves from gazumping?

A.

This is widespread across England and Wales and takes place when a seller agrees to the first buyer's offer and later refuses it. Instead, they then go for a higher offer. Although

being gazumped is less common in a declining market, there will always be a chance. You should instruct a law firm early, and even before acceptance of an offer to reduce the chance of gazumping.

Q.

We plan to complete on around 14th April. What should be assessed for stamp duty?

A.

The rate of stamp duty due will depend on the purchase price of the property. It is £11220 on a £374000 house in Rhiwbina.

Q.

How many weeks can the conveyancing process require, on average?

A.

For most Rhiwbina property, the length of time taken to buy or sell residential property is not wholly predictable. This wide range results from a handful of issues, for example, if management information is required. With our Rhiwbina property specialists, a sale, purchase or transfer of equity receives fast and efficient service.

Q.

How much would the fees for searches come to?

A.

With Homeward Legal, clients buying a property charged at most £249 for conveyancing searches in Rhiwbina. Other informative searches include a tin mining search.

Q.

Do you recommend that we get searches for chancel liability? We are buying a Rhiwbina apartment near church land.

A.

Owners of property in an area near an old church building may be required to cover the cost of repairs. This is referred to as chancel repair liability. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a Rhiwbina property, but an indemnity policy may be available to protect the new owners.

Q.

Direct Line Mortgages will be our lender - what do we need to consider?

A.

In some cases, lenders are now reducing their 'solicitor panel', resulting in higher legal costs for buyers if their lawyer cannot act for the lender. Homeward Legal, fortunately, can act for many lenders to ensure that you will not need to pay the lender's legal fees.
