Q.

How do I get low cost conveyancing?

A.

Many law firms offer cheap conveyancing, however additional charges will be included in small print which unwary homeowners fail to check. Any disbursements ought to be listed on the conveyancing quote. Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Might the fees for my conveyancing take into account any supplementary hidden charges?

A.

Homeward Legal's solicitors will not charge any hidden extra costs for standard conveyancing legal work. A Homeward Legal conveyancing quote is an single, accurate fee.

Q.

Our lender is Santander, what do I need to be aware of?

A.

Until recently, almost all solicitors could perform legal work for both buyers and mortgage lenders. In some cases, lenders have limited the firms who can act for them, potentially creating increased conveyancing costs for property purchasers. Homeward Legal can act on behalf of all large lenders, ensuring that an additional conveyancing solicitor will not be required to act for your lender.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Woodbury?

A.

Woodbury is located in East Devon District Council, Council Offices, Knowle, Sidmouth, Devon, EX10 8HL, contact: 01395 516 556

Q.

How many weeks should the conveyancing process generally take, according to your estimates? We are buying in Woodbury.

A.

The amount of time taken to buy or sell property may vary, based on a broad set of concerns such as where a party does not quickly respond an enquiry. The national average is 8 to 12 weeks, but we drive the process forwards, completing within eight weeks.

Q.

Do I need a chancel search? I am buying in Woodbury.

A.

The Law Lords decision in a court case between a parish council and owners of neighbouring farmland liable for church repairs reaffirmed that 'lay rectors' of property must fund church repairs. After the passing of an Act in 2002, interest over any affected land in Woodbury must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. Church lands in the area include St Swithun.

Q.

Would you address looking into how to avoid paying out for SDLT rates?

A.

SDLT usually must be paid on home purchases priced at over 125,000 pounds. We strongly advise against any stamp duty reduction, as such schemes are costly and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later and the total stamp duty tax may be payable.

Q.

Which environmental factors will contaminate land in Woodbury, and should they be a problem?

A.

A wide range of contaminants could impact land in Woodbury. Issues like environmental radon sources should be considered as part of the appropriate search.
