Conveyancing In Woolacombe Q & A's
How does a Help to Buy scheme work for me?
This government-sponsored scheme aims to assist homebuyers with three ways of purchasing a property:
- Help to Buy ISA - if you are a first-time buyer and don’t own any other property (anywhere in the world), and you don’t have another cash ISA opened in the same tax year, when you buy your first home, the solicitor will apply for the government bonus on your behalf when closure of your Home to Buy ISA used to buy the property is confirmed.
- Help to Buy: Equity Loan - if you have no other property and are buying a newly-built home, the government will provide 20% of the cost of the house (up to a maximum of £600,000), leaving you with the saved 5% deposit and a 75% mortgage to cover the remainder. This is open to current homeowners and first-time buyers, and the home cannot be sublet nor can it be used in a part-exchange deal.
- Help to Buy: Shared Ownership - if your household earns less than £80,000, you could be eligible for this scheme, which allows you to buy between 25% and 75% of the home’s value, while the government pays the remainder on which you would then pay rent.

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?

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.
There is a lot of online help on handling the legal side of home moving when buying and selling a home. Would it be realistic to take care of DIY conveyancing without help.?
If you want to attempt this you can certainly carry out the bulk of the your own conveyancing without engaging a specialist Woolacombe property solicitor.
Naturally conveyancing professionals would argue that this would be a potentially hazardous endeavour as DIY conveyancers do not have appropriate insurance that every solicitors firm are required by their regulator to take out.
