Q.

How do we get a cheap solicitor to buy a flat?

A.

Many online and high street conveyancers purport to offer cheap conveyancing, but extra costs are often hiding in the solicitor's terms which unwary buyers fail to check. Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Is gazumping accepted in Roker?

A.

Gazumping takes place when a property seller accepts the first buyer's offer, only to reject it, opting for a greater offer. It could occur weeks into a purchase. There is almost always a danger of gazumping. You should instruct your solicitor as soon as possible to reduce the chance of gazumping.

Q.

How can we establish whether a building is in a designated conservation area?

A.

With over 8,000 conservation areas throughout England, the areas near or within Roker include several areas of special architectural or historic interest recognised as protected. Your lawyer will provide more details and discuss what specific restrictions are in place.

Q.

Is Homeward Legal set up to move quickly on the conveyancing of property auction properties in Roker?

A.

The legal team deal with auctions throughout the UK and regularly carry out work for auction buyers and sellers. It is a shrewd move to get a suitable lawyer asap for a thorough investigation of the legal papers in advance of the property auction date.

Subsequently, immediately after the day of bidding, a conveyancing solicitor is fully prepared to carry out the conveyancing in less than 28 days as typically required by the auction conditions.

Q.

What can my conveyancing searches cost?

A.

Conveyancing searches ranges in cost, subject to which searches have been ordered. Conveyancing searches are paid out to a 3rd party, and will be charged at cost.

Q.

Roker conveyancing solicitors carry out formal searches if instructed to act for a property buyer - what particular searches?

A.

When getting a mortgage lender will expect at least the following for Roker: Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW) and Environment Search, and possibly less common searches, which might include Land charge Search (bankruptcy only).

Q.

How long may conveyancing legal work need, in your experience? We are buying in Roker.

A.

The number of weeks taken to transfer a home is not wholly predictable, based on a range of aspects, for example, whether the property is leasehold. For most firms in England and Wales, the average is between 8 to 12 weeks, whereas Homeward Legal take a more proactive attitude, pushing a transaction to complete within 8 weeks if possible.

Q.

Why does purchase conveyancing have so many delays? Isn't it just filing paperwork?

A.

Conveyancing could be subject to numerous interruptions or delays even in ideal circumstances. Sometimes, the delays are unhappily out of the solicitors' control. We seek to minimise the effect of these delays by, for example, ordering searches as early as possible. Reasons for delay include waiting for a mortgage offer.
