How do I get a discount conveyancing estimate in Camden?


Various conveyancers advertise theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. Often extra charges are often hiding in small print. Busy, stressed home owners ignore these terms at their peril. Additional charges found in the solicitor's terms should be reasonable. Your quote should also clearly state any disbursements.Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.


Following recent news about the Met Office projecting more intense rainfall, I am questioning if conveyancing and environmental searches won't be thorough enough?


Environmental searches handled by a property lawyer in Camden will include a far more rigorous flood search if the risk is deemed significant.

If you remain still nervous it may be worth trying to visit a neighbour.


What is gazumping?


Gazumping occurs when a home owner accepts one purchaser's offer, only to refuse it, opting for a greater offer. Although gazumping is less common in a declining market, there

will always be a danger. The first step in reducing the chance that gazumping will effect you is to instruct a property solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer.


Will a Camden property solicitor order any conveyancing searches on the London forties terraced cottage I am buying?


If you are applying for a mortgage a mortgage lender requires you to particular searches, including these searches - Local Authority Search, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environment Search and occasionally special local Camden searches for example Subsidence report.


Will a Camden property solicitor request personal or official searches on my property purchase?


Your conveyancing solicitor will make a recommendation about the ideal course of action, depending on things like local authority turnaround times. For personal searches, the property solicitor will try to find a search agent e.g Stanley Davis Group Limited also t/a York Place, Stratify Associates, Eurolife Company Services, 41 Chalton Street, London, NW1 1JD Tel: 0207 554 2222.


What do we do to calculate stamp duty, and how much should it be on a £775000 residential property?


The Stamp Duty that is payable will rely on the valuation. For a home valued at £775000, SDLT is £31000 (correct March 2013).


The web is full of abundant on and offline explanatory studies about doing your own legal work. Do I therefore need to instruct a Camden lawyer ?


Should you want to have a try you can definitely take care of the greater part of the legal and technical work without using a dedicated Camden solicitor. Essentially amateur lawyers will not be covered by suitable insurance cover which qualified firms and their solicitors are required by their regulator to have.


Would you state taking action to avoid paying out for HMRC stamp duty?


Stamp duty must be paid for property purchases valued at over £125,000. Stamp duty mitigation is not advised when buying in Camden. These schemes are expensive and , if a scheme is challenged, you can be fined up to 100% of the amount owed, in additional to the tax itself.
