Q.

How do I find a discount conveyancing estimate?

A.

Several firms purport to offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however additional charges may be added into the terms of engagement. Busy, stressed property buyers and sellers ignore these terms at their peril. Any disbursements should also be included on your conveyancing quote Any charges which are listed in the terms should be fair. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

We plan to purchase a house in Carlton Town. Is a chancel search needed?

A.

The conveyancer is likely to recommend a chancel search, regardless of the parish in which the house being purchased is located. In older areas of Selby, chancel repair has the potential to be charged on owners of a house where church councils have previously chosen not to do so, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.

Q.

How much would my searches be?

A.

With Homeward Legal, you are charged at a maximum £249 for the standard search bundle. Searches are disbursements paid to a third party.

Q.

In about five weeks we are likely to be finally moving out of our detached property near Selby into a bigger building in Ripon , what is the best point to choose a home removal company?

Your solicitor would tend to suggest that you wait organising removals until the point where formal exchange of contracts has occurred as in all probability an absolute move date will not have been agreed. For a local Yorkshire, North Riding company Abacus Removals & Storage, Unit 2 Blackwood Hall Business Park, North Duffield, Selby, YO8 5DD on 01757 289266 or Removals For You, 27 Hardy St, Selby, YO8 8DQ Phone: 01757 700602.

Q.

Will we need to get a chancel search if you are purchasing next to rectory grounds in Selby?

A.

Repair costs resulting from chancel liability can total hundreds of thousands of pounds. Parochial Church Councils in Selby must register their interest over property by October 2013, simplifying the chancel search process. Your conveyancing solicitor will suggest an appropriate indemnity policy to address chancel liability. Church of England properties in the area include St James, St Mary & St Germain ( Abbey) and St Richard.

Q.

My mortgage lender will be Hinckley and Rugby Building Society, what do I need to know?

A.

Some lenders have limited the firms who can act for them, potentially creating increased conveyancing costs for house purchasers. Homeward Legal can act for all major mortgage lenders to keep legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

Should I opt for a property lawyer commonly used by the estate agent in Ystradgynlais?

A.

If you choose a law firm this way, you may have the advantage of the agent being able to persuade a solicitor to complete sooner. These referrals should be considered carefully, as there is a risk that an agent may choose the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

I am going to buy a 1920's house, is it recommended that 'conveyancing searches' are performed?

A.

These searches are a standardised set of enquiries requested by your solicitor with local and national organisations. Searches are strongly recommended, however they refer to the legal condition of the property's title.
