I am looking for a solicitors firm that offers cheap conveyancing in Kingsland. What do we need to check for?


Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many sellers and buyers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned. Many property lawyers promote 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often extra costs will be included in small print. Charges should be reasonable. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


Bookshops and the web both have abundant online books going into great depth on do it yourself conveyancing. Do we necessarily want to use a solicitor in Kingsland ?


Technically, there is no argument why a home seller cant do the legal process on your own.

That said, a conveyancing solicitor in Kingsland handles a huge number of tasks e.g. applying for office copies of lease and other land reg docs and notifying parties of completion some of which are more safely handled with appropriate experience.

Nonetheless firms and their solicitors will be covered by acceptable cover to shield you from any carelessness made by the lawyer.


Could the charges for our conveyancing have any extra fees?


Homeward Legal never hide any additional costs.


Please explain why conveyancing work to buy in Kingsland requires weeks?


The conveyancing process can be exposed to significant delays. We seek to minimise their cost wherever reasonable by chasing for prompt responses. Reasons for delay may include difficulties with mortgage finance.


Will High Speed Two affect homes in Birmingham City?


Yes. HS2 is going to affect a number of property in the local authority of Birmingham City. After the announcement of the route, the mortgagability and value of some properties on the line has been affected.


What is the council tax on a Forties converted home in Kingsland?


More often than not the title report will cover the appropriate Hackney council tax band. The latest council tax charges for homes in Kingsland are set out in detail on the Hackney local authority site. At the time of writing (06/07/2012) rates are:

  • Band A - £870.00
  • Band B - £1,015.00
  • Band C - £1,160.00
  • Band D - £1,305.00
  • Band E - £1,595.00
  • Band F - £1,885.00
  • Band G - £2,175.00
  • Band H - £2,610.00


Would you recommend taking action to defer paying out for stamp duty in Kingsland?


Stamp duty is generally payable on residential property priced at over £125,000. We firmly advise against any stamp duty mitigation scheme. These schemes are often uneconomical and can be very unlikely to succeed. There have been a small number of government-sponsored schemes, on the other hand, such as higher thresholds for first-time buyers.


If I plan to buy in the parish of Kingsbury, are we advised to get a chancel search?


Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to recommend that a chancel search be taken out, regardless of the parish in which the building being purchased is found. In older areas of Kingsland, chancel repair may be imposed on the current owners of a building where Parochial Church Councils may have spared previous owners or tenants. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.
