Q.

We need to find an affordable conveyancing quote. What should I check?

A.

Many solicitors advertise cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately additional costs will be included in the solicitor's terms. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the solicitors' fees, based on the property you are buying.

Q.

What will the council tax cost me on a Thirties Band H flat in Shropshire?

A.

Your appropriate band will usually be set out as part of the conveyancer's title report along with the local council Correct rates for Shropshire are published at the Shropshire local authority site. At the time of authoring, 03 December 2012, the rates are:

  • Band A - £1,000.00
  • Band B - £1,167.00
  • Band C - £1,333.00
  • Band D - £1,500.00
  • Band E - £1,833.00
  • Band F - £2,167.00
  • Band G - £2,500.00
  • Band H - £3,000.00

Q.

We are buying a house. Do we need conveyancing searches?

A.

These searches are a standard set of enquiries carried out on your behalf, such as a tin mining search, and will only cover issues and defects relating to the property's legal title.

Q.

Should we use the conveyancing referred by my estate agent?

A.

Many estate agents have referral deals with solicitors whereby they refer work to them. However, if they

are paid a referral fee, some agents may 'recommend' whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the best solicitor for your needs.

Q.

Do I need to get a chancel search? We are buying in Shropshire.

A.

The Law Lords decision in Aston Cantlow (PCC) v Wallbank in 2003 reaffirmed that 'lay rectors' of property must contribute towards the cost of church repairs. Owners who have bought property prior to 2003 may be totally unaware that a liability exists if a chancel search was not carried out. Your conveyancing lawyer can provide more details.

Q.

Should we get a chancel search if I plan to buy in the parish of Adderley?

A.

Whichever Shropshire parish you are buying in, a solicitor is likely to recommend a chancel search. Although some church councils have exercised their right to impose chancel repairs on new owners of affected property, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish which has not been subject to chancel liability in the past will not be so in future, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.

Q.

I need to exchange contracts on the legal work on a freehold flat within 6 weeks, are Homeward Legal especially fast Shropshire solicitors ?

A.

On the whole home moving lawyers are lackadaisical which can cause additional pressure to the house selling process.

Our method is different - we use leading edge IT and fast response systems . We allocate home movers a SRA lawyer who will always communicate with the total buyer and seller chain including managing agents, to fulfil a fast completion.

Q.

Which of the Shropshire lender panels are you a member of?

A.

Shropshire lenders and mortgage specialists include C & R, 24 Fountain St, Leek, ST13 6JR, Jewel Financial Services, 29 Newcastle Rd, Clayton, Newcastle, ST5 4DQ, and Berkley Vittoria Independant Ltd, Berkley House/Wightwick Bank, Wolverhampton, WV6 8DR.
