Q.

How do we get the best rates for conveyancing in Silsworth for a £237,000 residence?

A.

Numerous law firms claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Often additional fees are often hiding in the terms and conditions. Additional charges found in the small print should be fair. They only apply to matters if the conveyancer must perform additional tasks for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The quote should state the disbursements to be paid.

Q.

When I am purchasing in Silsworth, do we need a chancel search?

A.

In Silsworth, where land was once owned by a lay rectors, new owners of that property may be obliged to contribute towards the cost of maintenance of a church in the area. Owners who have bought property prior to 2003 may be totally unaware that a liability exists if a chancel search was not carried out. The solicitor acting on your behalf will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate.

Q.

We have found a buyer and have a quote from you. Could there be any additional fees?

A.

Homeward Legal's solicitors will never charge any extra, hidden fees to buy or sell a property. Some solicitor do not give accurate quotes, only estimates, which they will not be bound to.

Q.

How is stamp duty tax assessed and how much do we need to pay on a £977k home?

A.

Stamp Duty in Silsworth will depend on the purchase price. It is £39080 on a £977k Silsworth home (information correct 15/01/2013).

Q.

As a result of the flooding in Sept 2012 in North East England I am anxious that environmental searches may not be thorough enough?

A.

Flood searches applied for by your Silsworth property solicitor should also include the far more in depth search (Landmark) if the risk warrants it.

If you are still nervous why not contact a local resident.

Q.

What are fixtures and fittings?

A.

In general, fixtures are fixed to walls, floors or ceilings and fixtures can be more easily removed. This may not considered until it is too late, which makes a fixtures and fittings form so useful.

Q.

We plan to purchase a barn conversion in Silsworth. Will we need a chancel search?

A.

Whichever Silsworth parish in which you are purchasing, a conveyancing lawyer could advise a chancel search. Through some church councils have chosen to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish where repair costs have not been paid before, that this will not be so in future.

Q.

I have to exchange contracts on the sale of a house inside 2 months, are you really fast solicitors in Silsworth ?

A.

A lot of solicitors are far too slow moving which usually adds large amounts of aggravation to the house moving process. Homeward Legal only introduce you to CQS solicitors that will communicate from the beginning to the end of the property chain (line of buyers and sellers) . In addition , our carefully chosen panel of lawyers are actually chosen because they utilise advanced practice management software systems to finish your sale fast.
