How do we get affordable conveyancing?


Confusion over this matter catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many property lawyers advertise cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional charges are often hiding in the terms and conditions that buyers often do not check. Any fees included in terms of engagement should be fair and only come into force where the lawyer must complete additional work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


The internet is full of collections of helpful manuals on the subject of by passing the solicitor. Do I actually have to use conveyancer in Alresford ?


Technically there are no arguments why you should not carry out the your own conveyancing unaided.

The truth is however that a Alresford property solicitor carries out a long list of roles from ranging from approving completion statements or collating and preparing contract and package most of which really need experience. Moreover solicitors are required to carry the applicable insurance cover to safeguard you in the event of negligence.


My agent has offered a property solicitor whom they usually use. Will it be easier to use them?


Both agents and mortgage brokers may refer a law firm to handle your conveyancing. However, if they are paid a referral fee, some agents choose whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the most appropriate choice.


In respect to the worrying amount of flooding in the UK in April 2012 we are questioning if flood searches aren't thorough enough?


A thorough conveyancing solicitor in Alresford should include flood searches if the standard search spots a any kind of Alresford flood risk.

Why not also speak to a close neighbour for that further local information or nearby Hampshire flood repair expert, e.g. Chamberlain Construction Ltd, Laurel Ho/Station Approach, Alresford, SO24 9JH Tel: 01962 733056.


An un-planned event dictate that we want to move along quickly and exchange contracts on the legal work on our apartment within 5 weeks, do Homeward Legal introduce any fast Alresford property lawyers ?


Homeward Legal has a speed focused approach to completing the conveyancing work. Our SRA regulated solicitors will always attempt to communicate through the whole of the buyer and seller chain and use the very latest software and information technology systems to complete on the property sale swiftly.


What do we need to calculate SDLT, and how much should we pay on a £663k house?


Stamp Duty in Alresford will rely on a limited set of factors, including the value of the home, and whether it is in a 'disadvantaged area'. Stamp duty will be £26520 on a £663k house.*

How can I go about determine whether the conservation area we are buying in is at risk?


Local Alresford conservation areas are created by the local Winchester planning authority, who administer the state of the area including things like street posts, addition of unsympathetic windows and what can be demolished. English Heritage have assembled a list of the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas.


How do we bypass paying out for stamp duty?


Stamp Duty Land Tax is usually payable for residential property priced at over £125,000. We firmly advise against any form of stamp duty mitigation. These schemes are often uneconomical and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later. There have been a small number of legitimate initiatives, however, such as disadvantaged area relief. A conveyancing solicitor should confirm whether you are eligible.
