Q.

How do I find affordable conveyancing in Wickford?

A.

Lack of clarity over this point catches out many sellers and buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many property lawyers promote supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however extra fees can inflate your final invoice. Extra costs needs to be fair.

Q.

We are intending to purchase with Coventry Building Society, what do I need to check?

A.

When buying with a mortgage, a mortgage provider will need legal work to be undertaken in relation to the mortgage. Recently, a number of lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel'. This can mean greater conveyancing costs for home buyers. Homeward Legal will act on behalf of many CML-approved lenders so that you will not be required to pay legal fees for your lender's solicitor.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Wickford?

A.

Wickford is located in Basildon Borough Council, The Basildon Centre, St Martin's Square, Basildon, SS14 1DL, contact: 01268 533 333

Q.

If we are purchasing near Wickford, in the parish of Aldham, do we need a chancel search?

A.

Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to recommend a chancel search, whichever parish where the home being bought is found. Although some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have taken the decision to exact chancel repairs on new owners of

affected property, there is no way to be certain that a parish where chancel repair fees have not been paid previously will not continue to be so. For property in the parish of Aldham, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

Which Wickford mortgage lenders do you work with?

Q.

In about five weeks we are preparing to move from our period residence in Wickford into our new dwelling in Westcliff On Sea , what is the optimum stage to choose a home removal firm?

A.

Most property lawyers will advise that sellers put off until after formal exchange of contracts has occurred as typically an agreed moving date wont have been confirmed.

Q.

The purchase is completing next April. How is stamp duty calculated?

A.

The Stamp Duty you must pay depends on a small range of considerations, primarily the house or flat's purchase price. Stamp duty will be £57550 on a £1151000 house or flat.

Q.

I really need to complete on the conveyancing on a leasehold flat within 28 days, are Homeward Legal fast Wickford conveyancing solicitors ?
