Q.

We need a cheap solicitor for selling a residence. Can you assist?

A.

Several firms offer so-called cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately extra charges may be added into small print that unknowing sellers have not reviewed Any disbursements to be paid should be included on your conveyancing quote. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

How is stamp duty calculated and what should we budget for a £731000 home?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax depends on the property's price. On a £731000 house or flat in Seaburn, stamp duty will be £29240.

Q.

Could the conveyancing quote cover any extra fees?

A.

Unfortunately, hidden fees are relatively common. Homeward Legal will never charge any hidden extra fees.

Q.

Are buyers often gazumped in Seaburn?

A.

This happens when an offer is, following agreement, later rejected by the seller, in preference to another buyer's offer. The risk of gazumping exists for almost any purchase. To reduce the likelihood of being gazumped, consider instructing a solicitor early.

Q.

The internet is full of an increasing number very helpful handbooks about do it yourself conveyancing. Do I therefore have to use Seaburn property lawyer ?

A.

Technically speaking there are no arguments why a home buyer cant engage in the conveyancing yourself. The truth is however that a conveyancer handles a significant number of tasks e.g. chasing any missing replies/clarifications to enquiries or notifying all parties of exchange many of which really need training.

Moreover firms and their solicitors are legally obligated to possess professional indemnity insurance in order to protect you in the event of failures.

Q.

Do you have low cost solicitors that look after property auction conveyancing in Seaburn?

A.

Our recommended conveyancing solicitors frequently get instructed by buyers and sellers at auction. Conveyancers typically advocate buyers at auction to decide on a the conveyancing firm well before the date of the auction to allow for a detailed investigation. Post day of bidding, the property conveyancing lawyer must be able to concentrate on conclude all of the legal work in under 28 days as usually required by the standard auction conditions.

Q.

We are intending to buy a converted chapel in Seaburn. Is a chancel search necessary?

A.

The Seaburn conveyancing solicitor may suggest that a chancel search is ordered. Chancel repair dues can be collected on owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils may have spared previous owners or tenants. For property in the parish of Seaburn, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

Seaburn property solicitors get varied searches when instructed by a home purchase client - which specific searches?

A.

If you are taking out a mortgage the mortgage lender expects at least these searches - Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environment Search, as well as any area-specific searches e.g. a Cheshire Brine Search.
