What will the overall charge be on the sale of a £639,000 property? We are trying to find low cost conveyancing in Gloucester.


Many firms offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however additional costs are often hiding in small print. This small print is often not read by sellers and buyers in a hurry.


Can you recommend how we get out of paying out for HMRC stamp duty?


Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) must be paid on home purchases valued at over 125,000 pounds. Homeward Legal strongly advise against any stamp duty mitigation scheme, as such schemes are costly and very risky.


Does the Gloucester conveyancing solicitor order any property on the Gloucestershire Regency mid terrace house I am intending to purchase?


The regular legal protocol is to get the following Local Authority (council), Drainage and Water Search

(CON29DW or personal) and Environmental as well as any less common searches for instance Planning Search.


We've got a quote from you. May there be any additional fees?


Homeward Legal never hide any hidden fees whatsoever. Some conveyancers give 'quotes' which are in fact estimates, meaning that you could pay much more when you complete.


It seems that selenium soil contamination may be an issue in Gloucester. Please advise.


With this region's industrial history in parts of Gloucester, soil contamination is impossible to completely avoid. Other sources of contaminated land include radioactive waste and groundwater contamination.


What type of environmental conveyancing searches regarding the potential risk of local flooding to properties in Gloucestershire will the property solicitor in Gloucester do?


A key part of the conveyancing process involves a conveyancing lawyer carrying out environmental searches that set out information regarding the local Gloucester flood risk. An inexpensive (around twenty pounds) and more specialist conveyancing search (most likely a Landmark Database search) might be advised by the property lawyer in Gloucester if in the event that the initial searches highlight any risk of flooding.
