Q.

What are the best rates for conveyancing for a £145,000 house?

A.

Various law firms claim to offer cheap conveyancing quotes, however additional costs will be included in the small print which unwary sellers and buyers fail to check. Any disbursements should be included on a conveyancing quote Additional costs which are listed in the terms needs to be reasonable and clear. They only apply in cases where your conveyancer must perform additional tasks on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.

Unforeseeable circumstances mean we ideally need to exchange contracts on the legal work on our home inside a month, do Homeward Legal have any fast Ulverston conveyancing solicitors ?

A.

To be frank, far too many conveyancing lawyers may be tardy causing even more stress to buying or selling.

We always work with conveyancers which work fast and will communicate end to end throughout the chain buyer and seller chain .

Moreover our carefully selected solicitors are specifically chosen as they rely on new case management and IT systems meaning they can exchange on your sale without hitch.

Q.

What does 'gazumping' really mean?

A.

This arises when a house seller accepts an offer and then rejects it in favour of a better offer. This may happen even months into a sale. Though gazumping is uncommon when property prices are falling, there is still a risk. To reduce the likelihood of being gazumped, consider instructing your solicitor as early as possible.

Q.

Which conveyancing searches should a property lawyer in Ulverston get for a Ulverston home?

A.

The routine conveyancing protocol will be to obtain Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal), Environment Search and Gypsum Mining Search, and possibly area-specific searches e.g. a Cheshire Brine Search.

Q.

We are purchasing in Ulverston with Darlington Building Society - is there anything I need to know?

A.

Buyers in Ulverston need to be aware that, in some cases, lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel', potentially creating increased conveyancing costs for buyers. Homeward Legal are able to act for most UK mortgage lenders, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

As a result of the extensive flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England, we are wondering whether flood searches might not be detailed enough?

A.

Your conveyancer in Ulverston will suggest that you get environmental searches if the first searches spots a risk of flooding in Ulverston.

You can also get in touch with a local resident for that added local history or local Cumbria flood damage expert - try: HY5 Commercial Cleaning, 25 New Market St, Ulverston, LA12 7LQ Tel: 01229 588939.

Q.

Can you explain why conveyancing for a sale takes so long?

A.

The legal work needed to sell or purchase property may be delayed for a variety of reasons. Some delays are out of the solicitors' hands, Homeward Legal, however, endeavour to curtail their cost by using fast search providers. Delays include a slow firm acting for the lender.

Q.

Is a home buyers survey necessary when purchasing a house or flat, regardless of its age?

A.

Homeward Legal strongly advise that all buyers book a RICS survey. There are many issues that will impact a property, which will not be covered by the legal work, which include insect infestation and chimney defects.
