Q.

How do we get fixed rate conveyancing?

A.

Various law firms purport to offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however extra charges are often hiding in small print. These terms are often ignored by excited sellers and buyers, eager to get underway. Any additional costs ought to be fair and reasonable. Any disbursements ought to be defined on the conveyancing quote

Q.

Do I need to make use of the conveyancing solicitor suggested by our estate agent in Pontarddulais?

A.

Many agents have referral deals with solicitors where they refer clients. Such referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, as the agent may prefer to suggest whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the best value for you.

Q.

I am planning to sell my house and have a quote from you. Could there be any extra fees?

A.

No. Homeward Legal never hide any additional charges for standard conveyancing. Buyers and sellers should be aware that some solicitors only estimate conveyancing costs, which they will not be required to adhere to.

Q.

In about 6 weeks we are shortly going to move from our terraced home in Rossendale into a new dwelling in Poulton Le Fylde . When to appoint a removals firm?

Your solicitor would usually suggest that home movers wait organising removals until the point where exchange of contracts as in all probability a move date will not have been agreed. For a local Lancashire company Dewhurst Removals, Holme Bank/Foundry St, Rossendale, BB4 6HQ Telephone: 01706 216130 or Turners Removals Of Blackburn, Whitehead St, Rossendale, BB4 7RB on 01254 56182.

Q.

Does our Rossendale conveyancer report back to me about the amount to be paid of the council tax on a Band H maisonette before completion?

A.

The property solicitor will speak to the governing Rossendale local council to ascertain the most up to date council tax rates, which should then be detailed in the title report. The latest council tax rates for residents of Rossendale are set out in detail on the Rossendale local authority website. At the time of authoring on 06 August 2012 rates are as follows:

  • Band A - £1,052.00

  • Band H - £3,156.00

Q.

When do we need to instruct a conveyancer in Rossendale?

A.

With few exceptions, instructing as soon as possible is wise. The legal work can then start straight away. Some groups advocate holding off instruction until a chain is completed, but delays can risk the other side pulling out, particularly in uncertain market conditions.

Q.

How much will searches cost?

A.

With Homeward Legal's conveyancing service, clients buying a property charged no more than £249 for conveyancing searches. They are charged at cost.

Q.

How can I find if any of the conservation areas in Rossendale are in a neglected state?
