Q.

How do we find the best conveyancing rates for a £704,000 property?

A.

Confusion over this point catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many firms purport to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. However additional charges can increase the final bill. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Will it be necessary to get a chancel search if we are intending to purchase in the parish of Foxton?

A.

Regardless of the Rothley parish in which you are purchasing, the Rothley conveyancing solicitor may suggest that a chancel search is ordered. Although some Parochial Church Councils have determined to charge chancel repairs on the current owners, a conveyancing solicitor cannot verify that a parish in which lay rectors have not been expected to pay chancel repair dues recently will not automatically be the case for future owners, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.

Q.

Flood searches may be all well and good but with recent events such as the serious flooding in Sept 2012 in the East Midlands are they comfort enough to investigate sufficient information about the changing Rothley area flood risk?

A.

A qualified Rothley solicitor will include environmental searches from Landmark if the standard conveyancing searches spots a significant risk Rothley flood risk.

You can also converse with a neighbour for additional added information.

Q.

Ulster Bank will be our lender, what do we need to know?

A.

Traditionally, most conveyancing solicitors were able to undertake legal work for a lender. Recently, a number of lenders have decreased the number of firms on their approved panel. This can mean greater legal costs for buyers. We can act for many mortgage lenders.
