Q.

We need to find a cheap solicitor quote for buying a residence. as we are on a budget.

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this issue catches out many home owners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors purport to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing', but extra charges are frequently hidden in small print. Fees listed in your solicitor's terms needs to be fair. They only come into force where the solicitor must perform additional tasks , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

How many weeks can the legal work to buy a flat take?

A.

The amount of time needed to sell or purchase property will vary, based on numerous considerations. These could include the tenure of the property. Homeward Legal solicitors strive to ensure your transaction receives communicative and proactive service, resulting in the fastest possible outcome.

Q.

Do I need to get a home buyers survey?

A.

Homeward Legal firmly recommend that the majority of purchasers in Topsham instruct a property surveyor to undertake a survey. A wide range of defects can affect a property, such as cracked roof tiles and settlement.

Q.

I plan to buy a chapel in the parish of Holne. Will a chancel search be needed?

A.

Your solicitor instructed to handle the transaction could advise a chancel search, regardless of the parish in which the building being purchased is found. Through some church councils have determined to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, there is no guarantee that a parish which has not imposed liability will not be so in future. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

We are on a deadline and need ensure a fast conveyancing transaction, what can we do to accelerate our move?

A.

Instructing a proactive, diligent lawyer is key a faster move. Beyond that, there are a range of tasks you, as the purchaser, can do, including, keeping in regular contact with your lawyer, quickly answering your lawyer's questions (by email if possible) and organising your finances, including arranging a mortgage.

Q.

Can you give the reasons why Topsham property legal work takes such a long time?

A.

The legal work involved in buying or selling Topsham property could be lengthy. Homeward Legal understand that these can cause considerable stress and work hard to lessen their impact whenever we can do so. Common delays can include problems with arranging a mortgage.

Q.

I would like to know which Topsham lenders your lawyers work with. Whose panels are your solicitors members of?

A.

We work with the majority of lenders assisting home buyers in Topsham. Local mortgage lenders and brokers include Devonshire Mortgage Consultants Ltd, The Mortgage Studio/37a Fore St, Topsham, Exeter, EX3 0HR.

Q.

How do I avoid paying out for stamp duty on our purchase?

A.

Stamp duty reduction scheme must be treated with caution, because these schemes are often uneconomical and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later.
