Woolacombe's nearest airport is Swansea Airport. The nearest train station to Woolacombe is Barnstaple, about 9 miles away.

Ilfracombe Tyrrell is the neighbouring hospital to Woolacombe.

Q.

How do I get fixed rate conveyancing?

A.

Numerous firms offer 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately extra fees are often hiding in the terms. Busy, stressed buyers and sellers ignore these terms at their peril. Extra costs found in the terms ought to be fair. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

I am planning to sell our co-owned apartment in a local property auction, will you introduce us to fast Woolacombe property lawyers ?

A.

Unsuprisingly, a lot of solicitors practices are extremely dilatory which brings even more stress to buying or selling a home.

Homeward Legals solicitors method is different as we use new document production systems . Critically , we give you a conveyancing solicitor trained to communicate by phone and email up and down the chain .

Q.

Would you advise that we get a chancel liability search if I am buying a home on the same street as a 1300s rectory in Woolacombe?

A.

Owners of property in Woolacombe may be subject to chancel repair liability. Parochial Church Councils in Woolacombe must register their interest over property by October 2013, simplifying the chancel search process. The solicitor acting on your behalf will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate. Woolacombe church lands where a chancel search may be appropriate include St Sabinus.

Q.

What specific searches does a Woolacombe conveyancing solicitor do when instructed on a Woolacombe flat?

A.

The customary legal procedure will be to get Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search (Con29DW),

Environmental, Tin Mining Search and China Clay Search and occasionally specific searches for example Anti Money Laundering Search.

Q.

We are taking out a mortgage in Woolacombe with Principality Building Society - what do I need to consider?

A.

When taking out a mortgage, legal work must be undertaken in relation to the mortgage. Buyers should know that, recently, a number of lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel, which may result in increased conveyancing costs for buyers. Homeward Legal, however, will act for the majority of CML-approved lenders so that you will not be required to pay any additional legal fees to your lender's solicitor.

Q.

Which body is responsible for monitoring the state of repair of Woolacombe conservation areas?

A.

Conservation areas in Woolacombe are specified by the local North Devon planning authority, who preside over the state of the area including things like modern telephone boxes, non sympathetic doors and public spaces. English Heritage, a government body, now maintain records of the state of repair of conservation areas in addition to the risk of a worsening of the condition of the area.

Q.

Will my lawyer in Woolacombe inform me about the amount to be paid of the council tax on a Band E house prior to exchange?

A.

The property lawyer will write to the council to enquire about the latest council tax rates, which should then be written in the conveyancing report on title. The latest tax charges for homes in Woolacombe are set out on the North Devon council site. As at (23 December 2012) rates are as follows:

  • Band A - £1,040.00
  • Band B - £1,213.00
  • Band C - £1,386.00
  • Band D - £1,560.00
  • Band E - £1,906.00
  • Band F - £2,253.00
  • Band G - £2,599.00
  • Band H - £3,119.00

Q.

Is there something we can do to hold off paying for SDLT?

A.

We do not advise home movers get involved with any stamp duty mitigation scheme, as such schemes are highly expensive and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed meaning that the full stamp duty amount will be payable. There have been a range of government initiatives, such as higher thresholds for first-time buyers.
