Q.

How do I find a discount conveyancing quote?

A.

Both high-street and online property lawyers offer cheap conveyancing, however extra costs are often hiding in the terms which unwary homeowners fail to check. Any disbursements to be paid should be included on your quote. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.

Do we need to select the lawyer that works with by my local agent?

A.

An agent in Ravenglass can influence a solicitor they refer many clients to, and can therefore pressure a slow solicitor to work faster. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, the agent may prefer to suggest the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.

Q.

How much time can the legal work to transact an apartment take? The house being transacted is also in the area.

A.

The number of weeks needed to transfer property is not wholly predictable, influenced by potentially many issues affecting the property. These could include where management information is required. Our lawyers strive to ensure the matter is handled quickly, and to the highest standard of service.

Q.

In about four weeks we are anticipating to move from our period property in Shaftesbury into a new flat in Portland at what point to choose a home removal company?

Most conveyancers will suggest that house movers delay arranging removals until after exchange of contracts as a home moving date wont have been decided.

Try Green Morley, 2 Salisbury Rd, Shaftesbury, SP7 8BT Telephone: 01747 854558.

Q.

If I plan to purchase near Shaftesbury, in the parish of Tarrant Monkton with Tarrant Launceston, do we need a chancel search?

A.

The lawyer might recommend that a chancel search be ordered, regardless of the parish where the residence being bought is located. Chancel repair dues can be collected on new owners of a residence where Parochial Church Councils may have not done so in the past. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

When in the process should we instruct a conveyancer in Shaftesbury?

A.

If you use a solicitor offering a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, the earlier in the process you can instruct a solicitor, the better, as there are a number of tasks that can be carried out immediately. Some groups suggest waiting before instruction until the offer is accepted, but delays can risk the other side pulling out, particularly in uncertain market conditions.

Q.

What does a Shaftesbury property lawyer do if the house we are intending to buy is inside the boundary of a local authority conservation area and has unsuitable doors installed?

A.

North Dorset planning authority searches carried out by a solicitor in the process of the conveyancing should determine if the property is within a designated conservation area proof of formal approval for additions to the property will be required.

Q.

We are purchasing in Shaftesbury with Birmingham Midshires - what will I need to know?

A.

In some cases, lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel'. Homeward Legal are able to act for the vast majority of CML-approved lenders, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.
