Conveyancing In Wick Q & A's
What does the fees for searches total?
With Homeward Legal, you are charged no more than £249 for the standard search bundle. Common searches include a chancel liability search and a mining search.
What’s the difference between residential and commercial conveyancing?
In essence, there is very little difference between the tasks needed for residential conveyancing against commercial conveyancing. The real difference comes in the type of property and the purpose for which it is intended to be used.
The majority of residential transactions are freehold, whereas commercial transactions are almost exclusively leasehold, and commercial property conveyancing searches will tend to be more expensive because the structure and land will occupy a greater space on average than that for residential property.
Should I accept an offer on my home if I haven’t found one to buy?
From your prospective buyer’s standpoint, they are not going to want to wait around for you to find somewhere to move to necessarily, meaning that they might drop out of the process to look for a property that is more readily available. However, you might want to have the discussion with your estate agent as to the best way to manage this as part of the process of putting your house on the market.
It’s not always going to be easy for everyone in the chain to have everything lined up from mortgage offers, sale price agreements, solicitors, surveys and so on. Therefore, you can be honest and tell your prospective buyer that, while you’re accepting the price, you haven’t completed your part in the chain; if they are unhappy with this, your other option is to consider a short-term rental or moving in with friends temporarily to protect the sale.

What should I be aware of if we invest in a home in a Vale of Glamorgan council conservation area ?
Vale of Glamorgan planning authority Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search conducted by your Wick conveyancing solicitor during the conveyancing process should verify the existence of the appropriate council approval for modifications to the property.
If no local authority consents can be provided, your solicitor will advise you of the options like buying an indemnity policy or seeking retrospective consent.
If I plan to buy in the parish of Llanilid with Llanharan, do we need a chancel search?
The conveyancing lawyer should confirm that a chancel search is taken out, whichever parish where the home being bought is found. Chancel repair dues can be collected on owners of a home where church councils have previously chosen not to do so, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.
What makes Wick sale conveyancing to take weeks more than planned?
Conveyancing can suffer all manner of setbacks. Homeward Legal know how distracting such delays can be and strive to diminish the consequences of these delays wherever possible by chasing for prompt responses.
At what point should you instruct a conveyancing solicitor to handle our sale?
With a firm offering a 'no move, no fee' conveyancing quote, earlier is preferable. Early instruction of a firm for a sale enables prior to marketing the property, documents can be prepared to make it potentially more attractive to motivated buyers, whereas if you are buying your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed.
