How do I get a discount conveyancing estimate in Charing Cross?


Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many buyers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned. Many solicitors offer theoretically cheap conveyancing, but additional fees are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms. Any additional costs included in the small print should be fair and clearly defined.


I am buying a £149000 property in Charing Cross, what will be calculated for SDLT?


The Stamp Duty Land Tax owed will depend on the purchase price. For a property worth £149000, SDLT is £1490.


Will I need to get a chancel search if you are buying a flat conversion on the same street as a parson's close in Charing Cross?


Owners of property near to a medieval church may be required to fund repairs. This is referred to as chancel repair liability.

Owners who have bought property prior to 2003 may be totally unaware that a liability exists if a chancel search was not carried out. The solicitor carrying out the legal work for your move will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate.


What kind of flood plain searches in connection with the uncertain risk of possible flooding to properties in Westminster will my Charing Cross property lawyer be able to conduct on a Victorian maisonette I am going to buy?


A solicitor applies for conveyancing and environmental searches that should include Charing Cross flood risk area data. At the time of writing (08/01/13) reports on the Environment Agency do not reveal any flood warnings in Charing Cross.


Which environmental factors can affect land in Charing Cross. Will they be checked for comprehensively?


A broad range of contaminants may impact residential property in Charing Cross, like other land contamination or brine works. An environmental search will give more detail.


As a consequence of the fact that 2012 was second wettest year since on record, I am anxious that flood searches might not be sufficient?


A good Charing Cross conveyancer will consider also get property environmental searches if the enviro searches flag up a Charing Cross flood risk.

For added peace of mind it may be prudent to get in touch with a local resident.


Is a survey advisable if we are purchasing property?


Homeward Legal heavily advise that most Charing Cross buyers instruct a house surveyor to carry out a survey. There can be a range of defects that have a negative impact on a property, which will not be addressed during a property valuation. These include chimney defects or poor ventilation.


How much would my searches be?


Charing Cross conveyancing searches ranges in cost, depending on the searches required by your lender. Conveyancing searches are charged at cost.
