Q.

I am looking for discount conveyancing. How do I get a quote?

A.

This catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many firms purport to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately extra fees can increase the solicitor's invoice. Extra costs should be fair and clearly defined and only apply in cases where your conveyancer is required to complete unexpected extra work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

Which factors assist with arranging fast conveyancing?

A.

Key to moving faster is to instruct a proactive conveyancer. When identifying an appropriate a conveyancer, : Do they order searches immediately? Do they offer 'instant' online quotes? Which communication methods do they use? Days can be wasted waiting for letters in the post which could be emailed or faxed.

Q.

Why does the conveyancing process require so much time and effort?

A.

Conveyancing will occasionally potentially be delayed. We appreciate how difficult it can be to face these and do our best to minimise the consequences of these delays where it is possible to do so by driving the sale or purchase forward.

Q.

When my partner and I are buying in Thurston near a 16th Century 'parson's close', do I need to get a search for chancel liability?

Chancel liability repair costs can run into £100,000s, which owners of affected property will be compelled to pay on demand to the Thurston Church council. Terms used in a property's name, like 'glebe', may indicate chancel liability. The solicitor handling your conveyancing will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary. Thurston church properties where a chancel search may be necessary include St Peter.

Q.

Are there many conservation areas in Thurston?

A.

Conservation areas categorise streets and neighbourhoods recorded as being of 'special architectural and historic interest'. A solicitor will discuss the relevant responsibilities you would be taking on by purchasing in a conservation area.

Q.

Would you recommend looking into how to get out of paying stamp duty tax?

A.

We firmly advise against any form of stamp duty scheme. These schemes are often uneconomical and unreliable.

Q.

The property being purchased is on a brownfield site. Is arsenic (As) soil contamination likely?

A.

There are regulations imposed to control top-soil contamination. Also considering issues such as food-processing waste and groundwater contaminants like industrial chemicals, contaminants affecting Thurston property will be factored into an environmental search.

Q.

Does Homeward Legal advise on the conveyancing for auction properties in Thurston?

A.

We are used to working with buyers and sellers at auction. Normally unusual houses like Sold with defective legal titles, are bought in property auctions which tend to demand deeper legwork by the conveyancer Conveyancers therefore advocate buyers to formally instruct a SRA regulated lawyer well before the property auction date to allow for a full review of the documents.

Immediately following the property auction, the lawyer should be able to concentrate on finalise the legal side of things in less than the 4 week time frame, a normal requirement of terms of sale.
