Q.

I am looking for the cheapest conveyancing quote. and what is included?

A.

Numerous firms promote so-called cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately extra fees are often hiding in the solicitor's terms. Extra fees included in terms of engagement should be clearly defined. They only be applied if the lawyer must perform additional tasks for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Any disbursements should also be included on your quote. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Which actual search enquiries should the property solicitor in Whitehaven carry out when instructed on a Whitehaven house?

A.

The normal procedure is to get Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW), Environment Search and Gypsum Mining as well as any unique particular e.g. a HS2 Search.

Q.

Why does conveyancing in Whitehaven go on for so long? Isn't it just filing paperwork?

A.

The legal work required to buy or sell property could be delayed. Homeward Legal understand how unnecessarily stressful these delays can be and endeavour to diminish the cost of these delays by, for example, ordering searches as early as possible.

Q.

Will my conveyancer in Whitehaven tell me about the cost of council tax for a Band D property prior to completion?

A.

A solicitor will speak to the council to ascertain the latest council tax charges which will be written in the title report. Council tax rates for homes in Whitehaven are detailed at the Copeland council website. At the time of authoring, 15 August 2012, rates are:

Q.

Do you have fast solicitors that look after auction conveyancing in Whitehaven?

A.

Yes - We are highly experienced with sellers at auction. Conventionally difficult to value properties are sold in auctions which tend to need extra due diligence. We therefore recommend that buyers formally appoint a good conveyancing solicitor prior to the actual auction to allow enough time for a thorough review of the legal papers for the lot. Q.

What can we do to hold off paying out for SDLT?

A.

Stamp duty scheme is not recommended, as such schemes are costly and , if the scheme fails, you may be charged a penalty of up to 100% of the stamp duty amount owed.

Q.

Will the charges for my conveyancing include any hidden charges?

A.

Unfortunately, buyer should read the terms of their conveyancing quote careful to identify any hidden fees. Homeward Legal will never charge any extra, hidden charges.

Q.

The owner appears to have fitted conspicuous windows to the property in Whitehaven which we think might breach conservation area rules

A.

Your instructed property solicitor to ascertain if the property is inside a conservation area, and if so, whether any modifications have required permissions from the local council.
