Q.

How do we get a discount conveyancing quote?

A.

Many property lawyers advertise so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often extra costs are often hiding in small print. These terms are often ignored by excited buyers, eager to get underway. Any extra costs needs to be fair. They be applied only where your solicitor is required to complete unexpected extra work for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our online calculator will create an accurate quote for your buy.

Q.

What are the issues if purchasing a modified home in a Westminster planning authority designated conservation area ?

A.

An integral part of the legal due diligence when buying a property includes the making of enquiries of Westminster local authority to establish conservation area status and the requisite formal approval for any modifications. LLC1 searches are not fees and are charged without markup to the client.

Q.

Will it be necessary to get a chancel search if we are buying in the parish of St Botolph without Aldgate?

A.

The conveyancer might recommend that a chancel search is ordered. Through some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have decided to exact chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, a solicitor cannot state with certainty that a parish where chancel repair fees have not been paid previously will remain liability-free for new owners.

Q.

We are buying a 1960's property. Do we need conveyancing searches?

A.

Searches are questions requested by the buyer's property solicitor, and refer specifically to issues with the property's title.

Q.

I am concerned about the council tax amounts on a Thirties end of terrace property in Soho, how much are they?

A.

Typically a conveyancer's title report will contain the appropriate Westminster council tax band. Correct rates for properties in Soho are set out on the Westminster local authority website. At the time of writing on 24 December 2012 the rates are:

  • Band A - £456.00
  • Band B - £533.00
  • Band C - £609.00
  • Band D - £685.00
  • Band E - £837.00
  • Band F - £989.00
  • Band G - £1,141.00
  • Band H - £1,369.00

Q.

What makes sale conveyancing work appear to be so drawn out?

A.

Conveyancing may experience many unexpected delays even in ideal circumstances. The causes are on occasion unhappily beyond your solicitor's power. Homeward Legal do our best to lessen the consequences of these delays by driving the transaction forward.

Q.

How much can the charge for the conveyancing searches total?
