Many firms offer so-called cheap conveyancing, however additional charges are often hiding in the small print. Extras ought to be fair.


What can we do to get out of paying out for stamp duty to HM Revenue?


Homeward Legal do not recommend any stamp duty scheme. These schemes are expensive and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed . There have been several government-sponsored schemes, such as higher thresholds for first-time buyers. A conveyancing solicitor should confirm whether you are eligible.

Is contaminated land a problem in Cudham?


A range of contaminants caused by naturally-occurring factors may impact Cudham property, like masts or pylons or proximity to landfill sites. An environmental search can give more clarity.


What issues assist with aiming for fast conveyancing?


It is a truism that instructing a proactive solicitor is essential to a fast conveyancing transaction. Ask these questions when identifying your conveyancer:

  • Do they use email as the preferred mode of communication?
  • Do they offer 'instant' online quotes?
  • Are they 'no move, no fee'? This can incentivise a faster transaction.


What are the issues if buying a house located inside a Bromley council designated conservation area ?


An integral part of the due diligence for buyers involves the ordering of searches of the Bromley authority to determine conservation area status and the required formal approval for modifications. In the event that no suitable consents be in evidence, your conveyancing solicitor will inform you of the options such as obtaining an indemnity policy or getting retrospective permission.


Do you need a chancel search? We are buying a property in Cudham.


The result of a landmark case in 2003 reaffirmed that 'lay impropriators' of property must fund church repairs. Terms used in a property's name, like 'priory', may indicate chancel liability. The solicitor carrying out the legal work for your move will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate. Church lands in Cudham include St Peter & St Paul.
