Q.

How can we ensure our cheap quote is fixed? I am trying to find a low cost conveyancing quote.

A.

Many online and high street solicitors claim to offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often extra costs can inflate your final invoice. Fees included in the solicitor's terms needs to be reasonable. A quote for conveyancing in West Yorkshire should also clearly state costs to be paid to third parties, including search providers, (disbursements).

Q.

As a result of the worrying amount of flooding in the UK in April 2012 I am wondering whether environmental searches may not be sufficient?

A.

Environmental searches handled by the solicitor in West Yorkshire should also include the more rigorous search (Landmark) if required.

If you are worried why not try to speak to a future neighbour.

Q.

The vendor has unfortunately fitted out of place artificial stone cladding on the building which I think might possibly violate the Canning Street conservation area rules.

A.

Your solicitor is required to see whether your proposed purchase is inside a designated conservation area and whether any modifications have the necessary consents.

Q.

How many mortgage lenders in West Yorkshire do you work with?

A.

The Homeward Legal group have solicitors who have experience working with the majority of lenders assisting West Yorkshire home purchasers. 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.

Q.

Do 'conveyancing searches' affect a decision to buy?

A.

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.

Q.

Is homewardlegal.co.uk able to complete within 28 days of exchange on the legal conveyancing of property auction properties in West Yorkshire?

A.

Our company regularly take instructions from buyers at auction. Our auction team conveyancing lawyers have in the past worked for countless vendors at local West Yorkshire residential property auctions that include Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London, Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.

Normally difficult to value houses e. g. barn conversions are included at property auctions which tend to want additional review. Lawyers therefore advocate that bidders select an experienced lawyer well before the auction day for a full investigation of the sellers documents.

Immediately following the auction day arrives a prepared lawyer will be fully prepared to finalise the auction conveyancing process in less than 28 days, a normal requirement of conditions of sale.

Q.

Which property conveyancing searches should the conveyancing solicitor in West Yorkshire apply for on a West Yorkshire home?

A.

The standard procedure will be to obtain these searches - Local Authority, Drainage Search (Con29DW), Environmental, Tin Search and Clay Search as well as any specific local West Yorkshire searches for instance Land charge Searches.

Q.

What do fixtures and fittings mean?

A.

New owners in West Yorkshire are frequently confused by the lack of detail regarding fixtures and fittings. Early agreement of a list of fixtures and fittings will avoid later disputes, clarifying to both parties what items will stay, and which will be removed.
