I need to find fixed rate conveyancing. Will I get a quote or and estimate?


Both high-street and online firms promote supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately additional charges will be included in the terms of engagement which buyers may have not read carefully Any additional charges which are listed in terms and conditions should be fair and clearly defined. They be applicable if the conveyancer must perform additional tasks in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Any disbursements to be paid should also be included on a conveyancing quote. Get a quote using the Homeward Legal quote calculator for the property you are buying.


What does a Hingham conveyancing lawyer advise if the property I hope to buy is located in a conservation area in South Norfolk local authority that possibly has inappropriate windows added?


South Norfolk planning authority searches carried out by a solicitor in the process of the conveyancing should find out the existence of suitable formal approval for any changes to the property. In the absence of any appropriate consents, your Hingham conveyancer will advise you of the options, which include requesting from South Norfolk council or getting covered by an indemnity policy.


I am going to purchase with Monmouthshire Building Society, what do we need to be aware of?


Some lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel'. This can mean increased legal costs for buyers. Homeward Legal can act on behalf of the majority of CML-approved lenders to keep legal costs to a minimum.


When we are buying near a church in Hingham, do you need to get a chancel search?


Where land in Hingham was once owned by a lay-rector, new owners of that property may be obliged to pay for repairs to older church buildings. Some names or words such as 'abbey' give an indication of a property's history, and thus whether chancel liability may apply. Church lands in the area include St Andrew.


What do we need to calculate Stamp Duty Land Tax, how much should we pay on a £402000 residence?


The Stamp Duty that is payable will depend on the value of the home. Stamp duty will be £12060 on a £402000 property.


Please recommend how to bypass paying stamp duty in Hingham?


Stamp duty avoidance is not recommended, because these schemes are costly and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed imposing fines and reviewing all your revenue matters.


The estate agent has offered a property solicitor. Should we use this firm?


It is common practice for agents in Lake to refer a conveyancer. These referrals need to be considered carefully, as an agent may choose the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the law firm with the best reputation.


We are buying on a recently-developed brownfield site. Is the soil likely to remain contaminated?


Hingham and the surrounding region has a legacy of chemical contamination. Various bodies hold data on land contaminants affecting Hingham, including local authorities.
