Q.

How do I get low cost conveyancing?

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this point catches out many sellers and buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many property lawyers advertise so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately extra charges can inflate the solicitor's invoice. Get a quote using the Homeward Legal quote calculator for the property you are buying.

Q.

Do we need to use a solicitor that usually works with by the estate agent?

A.

Estate agent recommendations are a common route to find a solicitor, however, these referrals should be compared against alternatives, such as local solicitors, or firms found online, as some agents choose whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the most appropriate choice.

Q.

To complete on our home purchase ASAP, can we guarantee a fast exchange and completion?

A.

As is often reported, finding a proactive, diligent conveyancing solicitor is the key to buying faster. There are, however, a range of things you, as the purchaser, can also do, including, asking for property searches to be ordered immediately, completing all forms as soon as possible and if you intend to get a house survey, doing so as early as you can.

Q.

What does a Whiston property lawyer recommend if the house I am intending to buy is in a Rotherham local authority conservation area which has unlawful roof aerials fitted?

A.

Rotherham local authority Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search conducted by a property lawyer should determine the existence of suitable authorisation for modifications to the property.

Q.

When do I need to arrange a conveyancer to act on our sale?

A.

Whether buying or selling, as soon as possible. The legal work can then begin very early in the process. Instructing a solicitor early can reduce the likelihood of the transaction stalling.

Q.

How many weeks does the conveyancing process require? I am buying in Whiston.

A.

The amount of time needed to transfer a property varies, influenced by a range of considerations. Homeward Legal solicitors work hard to ensure every sale is undertaken as quickly as possible.

Q.

Where do we uncover more information on the standard of the conservation areas in Whiston?

A.

Following a campaign, English Heritage have produced a detailed list of the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas in Whiston and across England in addition to the risk of getting worse. Local Whiston conservation areas including public spaces, the colours of paint used or street clutter are dealt with by the local authority (Rotherham).

Q.

Will we need a chancel liability search if I am buying a Whiston home on the same street as rectory land?

A.

Where land in Whiston was once owned by a lay-rector, new owners of that property may be obliged to cover the cost of repairs to an old church building. Some names or words such as 'Glebe Farm' give an indication of a property's history, and thus whether chancel liability may apply. Ecclesiastical properties in the area where a chancel search may be necessary include S.Mildred, St Mary Magdalene, St Mary the Virgin and St Nicholas.
