Can you confirm your cheapest fee for a £500,000 home? We need a fixed rate conveyancing estimate in Guildford.


Many solicitors purport to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional costs will be included in the solicitor's terms of engagement. This small print is often not read by buyers in a hurry. The conveyancing quote should also clearly state applicable disbursements. Any additional costs included in the small print should be fair and clearly defined and only come into force where your solicitor is required to complete extra work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.


Please state how to get out of paying out for stamp duty?


Stamp duty mitigation scheme is not advised when buying in Guildford. Such schemes are highly expensive and can be very unlikely to succeed.


I am planning on buying a investment property in one of the conservation areas, how do I find more information in respect of the standard of repair?

Local conservation areas are specified by the local Guildford planning authority, who manage conservation area concerns from whether trees can be cut down to the hindrance of billboards. Following a campaign, English Heritage now maintain a list about the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas in addition to the vulnerability of the area.


Which local authority is responsible for Guildford?


Guildford is located in Guildford Borough Council, Millmead House, Millmead, Guildford, Surrey, GU2 4BB, Tel: 01483 505 050


Could we be gazumped?


The practice of choosing to reject a previously accepted offer on a home when a higher offer is made by a second buyer is referred to as gazumping. Although gazumping is less common in a declining market, there will always be a risk. The first step in reducing the chance that gazumping will effect you is to instruct a property solicitor as early as possible.


We plan to complete on around 3rd March. How is stamp duty determined?


The Stamp Duty that is payable will depend on the value of the house. It is £1360 on a £136000 house or flat.


In a few weeks I am anticipating to move from our detached home in Guildford to our next flat in Godstone . At what point to choose a removal company?


The ideal point is for buyers to wait before making arrangements with the removals until after you have set the moving date that occurs once contracts are signed.
