Is a survey a good idea when we are buying any property?


The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors suggest that home buyers book a RICS survey when you plan to buy in Bacup. Buyers should be aware that there are a range of problems that can affect a property, that will not be addressed during the conveyancing process. These include subsidence and corrosion of pipework.


What can I do to defer paying out for SDLT?


We do not advise purchasers expose their finances to any stamp duty reduction scheme, as such schemes are often uneconomical and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed . There have been a small number of legal initiatives, such as for first-time buyers.


For fast legal work to buy a £581,000 property, what can we do to accelerate the process?
