Yes, we do. Our company is able to act for bidders at auction. Traditionally, specialist houses are sold at property auctions, which will need extended legal legwork. We therefore recommend that buyers at auction appoint their conveyancing solicitor prior to the auction to give enough time for a review of the lot. Then, immediately after the auction day, a lawyer will be in a far stronger position to complete the transaction in under 28 days, as is typically required by the terms of sale. Try our quote calculator, or call our team of auction experts on 0800 038 6699 to obtain your fixed-fee quote.Q.
Stamp duty avoidance schemes are very risky and uneconomic. Homeward Legal therefore strongly advises that you don’t get involved with any of them. If the scheme fails, you could be liable for a financial penalty of up to 100% of the stamp duty, plus the amount of the outstanding duty, which could run into thousands of pounds. The government occasionally runs legitimate schemes to assist home-buyers (such as relief for first-time purchasers). Your solicitor will be able to tell you if any such schemes are in operation, and, if so, whether you are eligible.Q.
The conveyancing lawyer may advise that a chancel search be ordered. Chancel repair has the potential to be charged on the current owners of a residence where church councils may not have done in the past. Therefore, indemnity insurance may be recommended even if repair liability is unlikely.Q.

Homeward Legal highly recommends that buyers book a chartered surveyor to undertake a survey to check out the structure of the building they are purchasing. It is a fact that there are many problems that can affect a property (including ground movement, evidence of rodent infestation, unsafe wiring, etc.), and issues such as these are not likely to be investigated as part of the conveyancing itself.Q.
Frankly, a lot of Greater Manchester solicitors are unacceptably slow-moving in completing their assigned tasks, which only serves to add a lot of aggravation to buying or selling a home. Homeward Legal’s solicitors are proactive and endeavour to communicate through all parts of the buyer and seller chain. In addition, they use the very latest workflow systems to complete on the legal process fast. Give our team of experts a call on 0800 038 6699 for your fixed-fee quote reinforced with our ‘No Completion, No Fee’ guarantee.Q.
It may not be obvious whether an item on your quote is a fee or disbursement, made more confusing by the terminology used by different solicitors. A managing-agent fee is a fee not a disbursement, and should be included in the quote for your conveyancing and not be charged separately. Homeward Legal’s quotes always make a clear distinction between the two types of charges, so that you know what your final legal bill is likely to be and are able to manage it more effectively.Q.
Most lenders in Urmston are on our panels and Homeward Legal regularly works with the majority of them. Urmston lenders and mortgage specialists include:
These areas preserve areas designated as being of architectural merit. The local council will offer more information about local conservation areas, and the solicitor handling your purchase should discuss what specific restrictions are in place.Q.
The outcome of a landmark case 10 years ago reaffirmed that 'lay impropriators' of property must pay for church repairs. Parochial Church Councils in Urmston must register their interest over property by October 2013, simplifying the chancel search process. A conveyancing solicitor will be able to advise further. Urmston churches include Branch church and St Clement.Q.

A residential property conveyancing solicitor will carry out official conveyancing and environmental searches that should include Urmston flood risk area information. Additionally a property lawyer in Urmston may recommend an inexpensive (around twenty pounds) and more detailed local Urmston flood search.Q.
Some lenders are now limiting the firms who can act for them, which may result in increased legal costs for home buyers. Homeward Legal are able to act for most lenders, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.Q.
On average, the amount of time needed to buy or sell a residence will vary. This is influenced by potentially many issues which may affect the property, such as whether a mortgage is involved. Our lawyers work hard to ensure your move is undertaken with the utmost care and speed.Q.
