How do we identify a genuinely cheap fee? We are trying to find an affordable Ashford conveyancing estimate.


Lack of clarity over this topic catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors advertise supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately extra costs will be included in the terms of engagement. Excited homeowners, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Any charges ought to be fair. A quote should list any disbursements to be paid.


How is Stamp Duty Land Tax rates worked out and how much should we pay on a £688000 residential property?


Stamp Duty depends on the value of the home. Stamp duty will be £27520 on a £688000 property.


Which lender panels in Ashford are you a member of?


Of lenders with offices proximate to Ashford, Homeward Legal work in conjunction with most. Lenders and mortgage specialists in Ashford include NatWest, 5 Woodthorpe Rd, Ashford, TW15 2RN.


How do I stop being gazumped?


Gazumping takes place when a seller accepts an offer and then rejects it, selecting instead a higher offer. Gazumping may happen mere days before exchange of contracts. The risk of getting gazumped is present in any transaction. Instructing a solicitor early is a key first step to reducing this risk.


What length of time does it take my designated property solicitor to finish all of the legal process on a semi detached building?


Completion can take anywhere between a month and twelve weeks, which can depend on any number of things for example the efficiency of the vendors lawyer, or the number of people in the chain. Homeward Legal's conveyancers are exceptionally focused on speed and communication completing the legal process in as short a time as achievable.


Should we get a chancel search if I am intending to purchase in the parish of Farleigh?


The solicitor instructed to handle the transaction could advise a chancel search, irrespective of the parish where the property being bought is located. In Ashford's much older areas, chancel repair has the potential to be charged on new owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils have previously chosen not to do so, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.


Is topsoil remediation of contaminated land available in Ashford?


Where land has been contaminated by previous industrial use, remediation may be possible. Contact a local provider for example Ransley Turf, 290 Kingsnorth Rd, Ashford, TN23 6LU for more details.
