Q.

I need discount conveyancing. What should I check?

A.

Many firms offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional costs may be added into the terms of engagement. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

My mortgage lender is Nationwide, is there anything we need to check?

A.

A small number of lenders have limited the firms who can act for them, potentially creating increased conveyancing costs for home buyers. We will act for the majority of mortgage lenders to keep legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

Which of the mortgage lender panels in Stoke on Trent are your solicitors on?

A.

The Homeward Legal group have solicitors who have experience working with the majority of lenders serving purchasers in Stoke on Trent. Stoke on Trent lenders and mortgage specialists include Century 21, 13 Hartshill Rd, Stoke-On-Trent, ST4 7QT, Direct Mortgages Ltd, 209 Grindley La, Blythe Bridge, Stoke-On-Trent, ST11 9JS, and Bridgeways, Station Rd, Scholar Green, Stoke-On-Trent, ST7 3JZ.

Q.

Is it important that I get a chancel search? We are buying a property close by a 1200s church in Stoke on Trent.

A.

Potentially amounting to over £100,000 in repair cost obligations, chancel liability should be considered by buyers of Stoke on Trent property likely to be affected. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a property, but insurance is available should an obligation to fund repairs be enforced. Church properties in this area include Sneyd Green S.Andrew.

Q.

Why does sale conveyancing need such a long time?

A.

Conveyancing in Stoke on Trent may be delayed, Homeward Legal, however, understand how frustrating these are and endeavour to minimise the impact of these delays wherever it is feasible. There are numerous reasons for delay, such as waiting for responses from third parties.

Q.

Is top soil remediation of contaminated land available in Stoke on Trent?

A.

Some degree of remediation is often feasible, though expensive, and a local service provider including Adams Valley Turf, 27 Uttoxeter Rd, Tean, Stoke-On-Trent, ST10 4LG may be able to provide further information.

Q.

The property seller has unfortunately fitted conspicuous roof antenna on the flat which we think might possibly infringe the Trent conservation area guidelines.

A.

The property lawyer should identify if the property is located within a conservation area and whether any alterations have appropriate consent from the Stoke-on-Trent planning authority. In the absence of any consents, your solicitor will recommend the options, which include seeking from the council or seeking cover from an indemnity insurance policy.

Q.

How soon do we need to instruct a conveyancing solicitor?

A.

If you use a solicitor offering a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, instructing as soon as possible is wise, as there are various tasks which may begin straight away. Instructing a firm to handle your Stoke on Trent conveyancing early can reduce the likelihood of the sale or purchase aborting.
