Commuting to Hunstanton? ;

Hunstanton's nearest station is Kings Lynn at 13 miles and Hunstanton's closest airport is Norwich International Airport.

Sandringham is the nearest hospital.


How do I get the best conveyancing rates in Hunstanton for a £745,000 property?


The confusion over this topic catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many solicitors promote theoretically cheap conveyancing. However additional costs will be included in the solicitor's terms of engagement.


In respect to the fact that 4 of the top 5 wettest years recorded were in last 12 years, I am concerned that flood searches aren't exacting enough?


Property conveyancing searches conducted by a Hunstanton lawyer should include a more specialist search (Landmark) if the risk warrants it.

If you are still concerned you could get in touch with a local resident.


Do we need to opt for a law firm suggested by our agent?


Estate agent referrals are a not uncommon route for buyers to find a solicitor. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, there is a risk that an agent may choose the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.


How can we calculate stamp duty rates, and what should we pay on a £591000 residential property?


The Stamp Duty that is payable is based on the purchase price. It is £23640 on a £591000 house or flat.*

*This information correct as of August 2012


I am selling in Hunstanton, and have had a conveyancing quote from you. May we end up paying any hidden charges when the purchase completed?


No. Homeward Legal do not charge any hidden extra charges. It may be the case that your solicitor recommends some additional work, but any fees for this work will only be incurred with your knowledge.


Does the report on title prepared by the Hunstanton lawyer advise us on the cost of the council tax for a Band F house before exchange?


The conveyancer will consult with the local authority to ask about the currently applicable council tax band and rates, which will then be set out in the conveyancing report on title. Correct rates for residents of Hunstanton are listed on the council website.


Our mortgage lender is Kent Reliance - what will I need to check?


A small number of lenders have reduced the number of firms able to act for them. Homeward Legal, however, can act for the vast majority of UK mortgage lenders.


Lawyers in Hunstanton order standard property if acting for a home purchaser - which specific searches?


If getting a mortgage the mortgage lender will expect particular searches, including the following Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search and Environment Search, and possibly unique particular for instance Official Search of Whole with Priority (OS1).
