I need a solicitor that offers cheap conveyancing. Will I get a quote or and estimate?


Many law firms offer so-called cheap conveyancing. Often extra fees can increase your final invoice. Any extra fees which are listed in terms and conditions should be clearly defined and be applied only where the conveyancer must perform additional tasks for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Based on the property you intend to buy, our online quote calculator will generate an accurate statement of conveyancing fees.


We need to complete this purchase as soon as possible, how do we arrange a fast conveyancing process?


Firstly, instructing a experienced conveyancer is essential to a fast conveyancing transaction. There are several tasks you can also do to accelerate the process, such as, answering any queries raised by your conveyancer as soon as possible, requesting status updates from the conveyancer regularly and clarifying your mortgage lender's requirements.


Is it hazardous to defer paying stamp duty to the Revenue?


SDLT is generally due on purchases valued at over 125,000 pounds. Stamp duty mitigation scheme is not advised, as such schemes are expensive and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later

meaning that the full stamp duty amount will be payable, with potential fines. There have been a range of legal initiatives, such as disadvantaged area relief, and your solicitor will advise if these may apply.


What do conveyancing searches mean?


Conveyancing searches are a standard set of queries raised by the conveyancing solicitor, such as a search of the Index Map. Searches are very useful whether buying with a mortgage or not, but deal with issues with the property's title.


What type of exploration concerning the uncertain risk of floods to properties in Waltham Forest will my Highams Park conveyancer check?


A conveyancer will conduct environmental searches that will include Highams Park flood risk information. A recent check (17-Jun-09) there were no warnings around the at the The Ching Brook in the London Borough of Waltham Forest, including Highams Park


In about 6 weeks we are shortly going to be moving from our semi detached property in Highams Park into a new house in Leytonstone . What is the optimum stage to book a home removal company?


Most property lawyers will encourage buyers and sellers hold off until contracts have exchanged because it is likely that a final move date will not have firmed up. There are many local and national companies including Chingford Removals, New Rd, London, E4 9EX Call: 0845 660 0481 or Sheltransrem, 15 16 Hickman Av, London, E4 9JG Telephone: 020 8527 1633.


At what point do you need to get a conveyancing solicitor to act for us?

Conveyancing solicitors in Highams Park do some conveyancing searches if acting for a property purchaser, which actual ones?


If applying for a mortgage a mortgage lender requires you to the following for properties in Highams Park: Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW) and Environment Search and, depending on certain criteria, area-specific searches such as Chancel Check.
