Q.

We are trying to find a cheap solicitor for purchasing a house. What should be watch out for?

A.

Many law firms offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. However additional costs will be included in small print. These terms are often ignored by excited buyers and sellers, eager to get underway. The disbursements to be paid ought to be defined on your quote. Our online quote calculator will generate an accurate quote for your transaction.

Q.

Do you advise that I get a chancel search? We are buying by a rectory built in the 17th Century in Scotter.

A.

Property owners in Scotter may be subject to chancel repair liability. Indemnity policies can be arranged if chancel liability is likely to be enforced. Your conveyancing solicitor can provide more details. Ecclesiastical properties in Scotter where chancel liability may apply include St Peter.

Q.

Are Homeward Legal experienced enough to move quickly on property auction conveyancing in Scotter?

A.

Yes - In fact we prepare legal packs for vendors and regularly do the legal conveyancing sellers at auction. It is crucialto get a suitable solicitors practice as soon as possible to allow for a thorough investigation of the sellers documents well

in advance of the day of the auction. After the auction day itself, the conveyancing solicitor is fully prepared to finalise the conveyancing in less than the usual 28 days as typically required by the terms and conditions of sale.

Q.

What precautions can I take to avoid paying for stamp duty to HM Revenue?

A.

We strongly advise against any stamp duty avoidance. These schemes are often uneconomical and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later meaning that the full stamp duty amount will be payable.

Q.

My husband and I are planning to buy in Scotter. How can we check that the building is in a conservation area?

A.

Conservation areas denote local areas recorded as being of 'special architectural and historic interest'. Your property solicitor will advise further and confirm potential liability for unauthorised works, regarding specific conservation areas in Scotter.

Q.

Direct Line Mortgages is our lender - is there anything I need to consider?

A.

Until recently, solicitors could carry out mortgage-related work for most lenders. Recently, a number of lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel, potentially creating greater conveyancing costs for buyers. Homeward Legal will act for all major lenders to keep legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

Is a deed of assignment a fee or a disbursement?

A.

All fees and disbursements should be identified on your quote, with no additional charges of any kind in the terms and conditions. This charge, for example, is a fee not a disbursement, and should be included in your conveyancing quote. Any associated disbursement costs will, however, be passed on..

Q.

How much will the cost of our searches be?

A.

With a Homeward Legal solicitor, a purchase conveyancing client charged no more than £249 for conveyancing searches. Searches are paid out to a 3rd party, and will not be included in the quoted conveyancing fees.
