Q.

How do we find fixed rate conveyancing?

A.

Many conveyancers promote 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately additional costs are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Any costs found in your solicitor's terms ought to be reasonable and clear and only apply in cases where the solicitor is required to complete extra work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our online calculator will create an accurate quote for your buy.

Q.

Would it be an unrealistic idea to carry out the conveyancing myself?.

A.

There is no reason why a buyer shouldn't carry out the conveyancing on your own.

That said, a conveyancer is in charge of a significant number of assignments ranging from chasing completion statements or notifying all parties of exchange most of which require a qualified professional. Furthermore solicitors are required by their regulator to be covered by cover in order to protect you from any professional omissions on the part of the solicitor.

Q.

My husband and I are purchasing a property in Shard End. How do I find out if the property is in a conservation area?

A.

Buyers in Shard End should be aware of a range of local areas of conservation. A conveyancing lawyer will discuss what specific restrictions are in place and be able to offer more information for conservation areas in Shard End.

Q.

Do we need to get a Homebuyer Report for our Shard End home purchase?

A.

Homeward Legal recommend that you instruct a surveyor to undertake a survey. There can be many problems that affect a property, which will not be covered by the legal work. These include blocked drains and cavity wall tie failure.

Q.

Does your solicitors company manage property auction conveyancing in Shard End?

A.

Yes - Homeward Legal is very capable working with sellers at auction. Often more complicated to convey houses are purchased at auction and these need extra exploration prior to exchange. Lawyers therefore recommend that buyers at auction choose an experienced conveyancing firm in advance of the property auction date to allow time for a review of the sellers documents.

Subsequently, following the property auction, a lawyer has to be prepared for complete the conveyancing process in under 28 days, a normal requirement of auction conditions.

Q.

I am buying a home in the parish of Averham with Kelham. Will a chancel search be compulsory?

A.

The conveyancing lawyer is likely to recommend a chancel search. Through some church councils have determined to impose chancel repairs on current owners of lay rectorships, there is no guarantee that a parish where repair costs have not been paid before, that this will not automatically be the case for future owners.

Q.

To complete on our purchase ASAP, can we organise a fast completion?

A.

It is well established that finding a proactive, diligent lawyer is the key to fast Shard End conveyancing. There are several things you can also do, including, responding to all correspondence via the fastest means, arranging your mortgage offer and asking for property searches to be ordered immediately.

How is stamp duty calculated and how much do we need to budget for a £868000 property?

A.

The Stamp Duty owed will depend on the value of the house. Stamp duty will be £34720 on a £868000 home (correct March 2013).
