Q.

How do I find the best rates for conveyancing for a £207,000 home?

A.

Many online and high street law firms advertise so-called cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional costs are often hiding in the solicitor's terms. The conveyancing quote ought to list any disbursements to be paid. Any costs included in terms of engagement should be reasonable and clear and be applicable if the lawyer must complete additional work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

The lender will be Northern Rock - what will I need to know?

A.

When organising a mortgage, your lender will require legal work to be carried out on their behalf. Recently, a number of lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel'. Homeward Legal will act on behalf of all large lenders.

Q.

May the conveyancing charges incorporate any extra costs?

A.

No. We do not hide any hidden charges regardless of circumstances. Be aware that some solicitor do not give accurate quotes, only estimates, which they will not be required to adhere to.

Q.

Do we need a chancel search if we are purchasing in the parish of Eagle, near Scunthorpe?

A.

A lawyer might recommend that a chancel search be taken out, irrespective of the parish where the property being bought is found. Although some church councils have determined to impose chancel repairs on new owners of affected property, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish in which lay rectors have not been expected to pay chancel repair dues recently will not be so in future.

Q.

Would arranging a house survey be sensible when purchasing any property?

A.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors heavily advise that Scunthorpe property purchasers book a RICS survey if purchasing in Scunthorpe. It is a fact that there are many defects that can affect a property, which are not included in your mortgage lender's valuation. These can include ground movement and cracks in walls.

Q.

Is a deed of covenant a disbursement or a fee?

A.

Unfortunately, some firms frequently hide additional costs as disbursements. It is not always clear whether a cost is a disbursement or not, and if it ought to be included. This charge is a fee not a disbursement. It should be included in the quote for your conveyancing.

Q.

What causes Scunthorpe sale conveyancing to take such a long time?

A.

The conveyancing process may take more time than budgeted even where there is no chain. Sometimes, the delays are out of your solicitor's control. Homeward Legal aim to reduce their burden by chasing for prompt responses.

Q.

As a result of the major flooding in Sept 2012 in the East Midlands I am wondering if property conveyancing searches aren't sufficient?

A.

Flood searches carried out by a Scunthorpe property lawyer will also include a far more detailed search (Landmark) if it is felt necessary.

If you are still worried it may be worth trying to speak to a future neighbour or regional Lincolnshire flooding repair expert - for example: JP HOWLEY DECORATING SERVICES, 62 Abbotts Rd, Scunthorpe, DN17 1JG Tel: 01724 875689.
