Do 'conveyancing searches' affect a decision to buy?
Conveyancing searches are a standardised collection of queries raised by the solicitor with several agencies, including a search of the Index Map. Whether buying in West Yorkshire or elsewhere, you should be aware that, searches cover solely legal considerations.
Could the charges for my conveyancing have any extra costs?
No. Homeward Legal do not charge any extra, hidden fees for any reason.
How many mortgage lenders in West Yorkshire do you work with?

Lenders and mortgage specialists in West Yorkshire include Standard Life, Princes Exchange/2 Princes Sq, Leeds, LS1 4HY. The solicitor managing the legal work for your move will be able to confirm additional costs or hurdles associated with your chosen lender.
Is it possible that some of the protected West Yorkshire conservation areas are in a poor state?
The determination of the state of West Yorkshires conservation areas is noted by English Heritage, and the following areas and information are currently available at English Heritage - Akroydon is designated as poor with medium vulnerability and deteriorating condition, Elland is designated as very bad with low vulnerability and deteriorating condition, Todmorden is designated as poor with low vulnerability and deteriorating condition, Holmfirth is designated as poor with high vulnerability and no significant change, Dewsbury is designated as very bad with medium vulnerability and deteriorating condition.
If I’m putting my furniture and other things in storage, will the process take longer?
There shouldn’t be any reason why your move would take longer than a standard removal if you are pitting your belongings into storage. In fact, in some instances, it might be beneficial for the chain and your completion on the sale, since you are likely to incur fewer delays in the process because you can put your furniture and other things in storage before the event.
Whatever your plans, it’s worth mentioning them to your conveyancing solicitor so that they know the logistics on the day of completion, and may even be able to provide advice and pointers on what to consider before the day to ensure things move more smoothly.
For a lender, we have chosen Accord Mortgages Ltd, what will we need to know?
Purchasers should consider that a small number of lenders have decreased the number of firms on their approved panel. This can mean increased conveyancing costs for buyers. Homeward Legal, though, can act on behalf of many mortgage lenders to ensure that you will not need to pay your lender's legal costs.
