Q.

How do we find the best rates for conveyancing in St Ives for a 765,000 residence?

A.

Many buyers seeking discount conveyancing are caught out by the lure of very low conveyancing rates. Many solicitors claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately additional fees are often hiding in the terms and conditions which buyers may have not read carefully The conveyancing quote should list any disbursements.

Q.

For fast conveyancing on the purchase of a £379,000 house, how can we speed things up?

A.

Essential to faster conveyancing is to employing a proactive, diligent conveyancing solicitor. You should consider:

  • Do they use email?
  • Do they use email?
  • Do they offer 'instant' online quotes?

Q.

Which of the St Ives lender panels are you on?

Q.

We have had a quote from you. Could I have to pay any hidden costs?

A.

Homeward Legal do not hide any additional costs for standard conveyancing work. It may be the case that a significant piece of other legal work is also necessary, but any fees for this work will only be incurred with your knowledge.

Q.

Is contaminated land in St Ives an issue for most homes?

A.

A broad range of contaminants may potentially impair land in St Ives, such as waste treatment sites in the area. An environmental search will give more detail.

Q.

Will a St Ives lawyer report back on the risk of local flooding in the St Ives region?

A.

An important part of the conveyancing protocol of buying a property involves the solicitor applying for property conveyancing searches that set out detail with regard to St Ives area flood risk.

Q.

I am going to buy with Santander, what do we need to know?

A.

Buyers should be aware that, recently, a number of lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel', which may result in higher conveyancing costs for buyers. Homeward Legal, fortunately, will act for most lenders.

Q.

Will I need searches for chancel liability? I am buying a property on the same road as an ecclesiastical parish in St Ives.

A.

Where land in St Ives was once owned by a lay-rector, new owners of that property may be obliged to subsidise repairs to specific local church buildings. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a property, but insurance is available should an obligation to fund repairs be enforced. St Ives ecclesiastical properties which may give rise to chancel liability include All Saints, St John's in-the-fields, Halsetown, St.Ives and St. Ives Parish Church.
