Many solicitors promote theoretically cheap conveyancing, but additional fees are often hiding in the small print which unwary buyers fail to check. Any extra costs which are listed in the solicitor's terms should be clearly defined. The conveyancing quote should state any disbursements.

A conveyancer will approach the local council to discover the currently applicable council tax rates, which will be set out in the conveyancer's title report. The latest tax charges for residents of Worcestershire are listed online at the local authority site.

Q.

Are Homeward Legal geared up for act quickly on the conveyancing of auction properties in Worcestershire?

A.

Indeed we specialise in auctions and do frequently act for sellers at auction. Homeward Legals panel of solicitors and conveyancers have in the past worked for many buyers and sellers at national and local residential property auctions that, amongst others, include Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London, Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.

Savvy buyers tend to get a suitable conveyancing solicitor as quickly as they can for a detailed report of the legal documents in advance of the property auction date. Q.

Will we need a chancel search if we are intending to purchase in the parish of Oddingley, near Worcestershire?

A.

A conveyancer should confirm that a chancel search be ordered, whichever parish in which the home being purchased is located. Through some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have determined to charge chancel repairs on the current owners, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish which has not imposed liability will continue to be free from liability. For property in the parish of Oddingley, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.
