How do I get affordable conveyancing?


Many law firms offer cheap conveyancing, however additional fees will be included in the terms and conditions which unwary buyers fail to check. Any fees listed in the terms should be fair and clearly defined. They only apply to matters if your lawyer is required to complete unexpected extra work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


How can we calculate stamp duty in Kenley, and what should it be on a £496000 residential property?


Stamp Duty is dependent on a small number of factors, primarily the value of the house or flat. For a residential property bought for £496000, stamp duty is £14880 (information correct January 2013).


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


We do not advise conveyancing clients get involved with any form of stamp duty reduction, as such schemes are often uneconomical and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later meaning that the full stamp duty

amount will then be due. There have been several official schemes, such as disadvantaged area relief.


Is soil in Kenley contaminated by titanium?


The risks posed by soil contamination to Kenley inhabitants are usually low. Also considering issues such as groundwater contamination and ammonia, contaminants affecting Kenley property will be factored into an environmental search.


Flood risk searches may be all well and good but considering climate change such as the Met Office projecting more intense rainfall in the future are they sufficient to report sufficient information about the Kenley risk of flooding?


The Kenley property lawyer will suggest that you also get conveyancing searches (Landmark search) if the initial search establishes a significant risk Kenley flooding risk.

You can always contact a next door neighbour to get further assurance.


Do fixtures and fittings include things like fitted gas or electric fires?


Usually, fixtures are fixed elements, such as cupboards to the property, whereas fixtures can be more easily removed. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.


Is your panel of solicitors geared up for 1 month completions on the conveyancing of property auction properties in Kenley?


Our residential property lawyers regularly work for buyers at auction. Homeward Legal always recommend buyers at auction to choose a solicitor prior to the property auction date to allow for a full report of the legal pack.

Following the date of the auction your lawyer is thoroughly ready for concluding the transaction inside 28 days as required .


When in the process should you instruct a conveyancer to act on our purchase?


Whether buying or selling, the sooner you instruct a solicitor, the better. Early instruction of a conveyancing solicitor can limit the risk of the sale or purchase aborting.
