Conveyancing In Woodhouse Eaves Q & A's
Should I list my property with more than one estate agent?
The choice is entirely up to you and your specific circumstances. Going with a sole agent is probably the cheapest option (although the reach to buyers is dependent on how many clients are on their books), while multiple agents will be more expensive (but will reach a broader client base).
If you’re looking for a quick sale or the market is rather sluggish, it makes sense to put your property on with a number of agents. If the market is buoyant, it makes more sense to place the property with a sole agent.
Whichever you choose, you should always check the terms and conditions so that you know what service you’re getting for your money and how much it will cost you once the home is sold. You should also understand if there are penalties should you decide to place the property with more or fewer agents later on during the agreement period.
Will I need a chancel search? I am purchasing a Woodhouse Eaves flat close by church land.
Where land in Woodhouse Eaves was once owned by a lay-rector, new owners of that property may be obliged to fund repairs to a medieval church. Insurance may be available to protect a buyer should a Woodhouse Eaves Parochial Church Council enforce liability. Woodhouse Eaves church lands include St Paul.
Do I need a solicitor?
The quick and easy answer is that you don’t. There is no legal imperative for you to employ a solicitor to handle the conveyancing when dealing with property. However, it would be rather unwise for you to carry out the work yourself because you probably won’t have the skills, knowledge and experience to perform many of the complex tasks, and you won’t possess the indemnity insurance that all solicitors are obliged to carry to protect clients in the event that something goes wrong.
You need to appoint a solicitor who is experienced, proactive and focused so that you have the best chance of completing your transaction as early as possible. You should also look for such a solicitor who also offers ‘No Completion, No Fee’ protection so that you will only be invoiced for the fees once your transaction has completed successfully.

Do you have good solicitors that manage the conveyancing for residential property auction properties in Woodhouse Eaves?
Yes - Our property lawyers frequently carry out work for buyers at auction. Lawyers often encourage buyers to instruct a lawyer before the day of the auction to allow for a title report of the legal pack.
How long does it take to move house?
Those new to buying property are often surprised by how long the process can take from start to finish. There are several factors that come into play when determining how long your transaction will take from having your offer accepted to moving into your new home: The number of people involved in the chain (the shorter it is, the easier to manage and therefore shorter in duration potentially), problems with one or more buyers in the chain getting a mortgage offer, communication, management and many others.
The greatest time that needs to be set aside is for the conveyancing, which is the complex legal process of transferring ownership of the property from seller to buyer, replicated along the entire chain. Typically, the conveyancing can take an average of between eight and twelve weeks to complete, so, in reality, you should be thinking in terms of months.
However, if you appoint a results-focused and proactive solicitor, who will do everything possible to reduce the length of time, including talking to everyone involved in the chain, pushing for swift return of forms and documentation, and using modern technology to drive the process forward, you will stand a better chance of the conveyancing being a lot shorter. And the earlier you appoint them, the quicker they can get started on your transaction.

I am buying in Woodhouse Eaves with Lloyds TSB Scotland, what do we need to consider?
Traditionally, solicitors could carry out mortgage-related work for most lenders. Recently, a number of lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel', resulting in increased legal costs for property purchasers if the lender insists upon their own chosen solicitor . Homeward Legal, though, will act on behalf of all major lenders, ensuring that an additional chosen solicitor will not be required to act for your lender.
