How do we get low cost conveyancing in Great Missenden?


Various conveyancers purport to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional charges are often hiding in the terms and conditions, left unregarded by busy home owners Any additional fees found in the small print ought to be reasonable. Any disbursements ought to be listed on a conveyancing quote


What do we do to calculate stamp duty, and what will it be on a £994000 Great Missenden residential property?


The rate of stamp duty which will be owed is based on the purchase price of the home. On a £994000 property, stamp duty will be £39760 (source:, 01/01/2013).


What property conveyancing searches should a lawyer in Great Missenden get on a Great Missenden home?


The normal legal procedure will be to obtain the following Local Authority (council), Drainage Search (Con29DW or personal) and Environmental as well as any area-specific searches, like a Official Search of Whole with Priority (OS1).


Will my Great Missenden lawyer commission personal or official searches on my property purchase?


The property solicitor will inform you about the most appropriate type of search, depending on factors like local authority turnaround times. If personal searches are used, your lawyer will consider a local search agent like FastSearch Limited, Erindale, Nairdwood Lane, Prestwood, Great Missenden, Buckinghamshire, HP16 0QQ Tel: 01494 863392 Fax: 01494 866203


I am purchasing a home in the parish of Preston Bissett. Will a chancel search be needed?


The solicitor should confirm that a chancel search be ordered, regardless of the parish where the property being bought is located. In Great Missenden's much older areas, chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on the owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) may have spared previous owners or tenants, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.


As a result of the fact that last year was second wettest year since on record I am apprehensive that conveyancing searches (environmental) may not be detailed enough?


Property environmental searches applied for by a conveyancer in Great Missenden should also include a more rigorous flood search if the risk is deemed significant.

If you remain still concerned you could make enquiries with a local resident or nearby Buckinghamshire flood damage expert - try: Graham S, 26 Honorwood Close, Prestwood, Great Missenden, HP16 9HJ Tel: 01494 867171.


Please state how to circumvent paying stamp duty to the Revenue?


SDLT is usually payable on property purchases sold for over £125,000. Homeward Legal do not advise conveyancing clients undertake any stamp duty mitigation scheme, as such schemes are highly expensive and often likely to fail.


I have taken out a quote from you. May I end up paying any additional charges when the transaction completes?


No. Homeward Legal's solicitors do not charge any hidden extra fees for standard conveyancing work.
