Can you confirm your cheapest fee for a £581,000 property? We are trying to find a discount conveyancing quote.


The lack of clarity surrounding this issue catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many firms promote theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately additional charges are often hiding in the terms of engagement that homeowners often do not check. Costslisted in the small print needs to be fair. They come into force only if your lawyer must perform additional tasks in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.


Our estate agent has referred the lawyer. Do we need to use this firm?


Estate agent referrals are a not uncommon path whereby buyers get a solicitor. These referrals should be considered carefully, as an agent may decide to recommend the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.


We have a found a leasehold flat to buy. How do we aim for fast conveyancing?


Finding a proactive, diligent conveyancer is essential to a faster move. There are a range of tasks you can do to accelerate the legal work. These include:

  • encouraging your conveyancer to carry out searches promptly
  • promptly answering your conveyancer's questions (by email if possible)
  • clarifying your mortgage lender's requirements


Is there something I can do to hold off paying SDLT?


SDLT must be paid on property sold for more than £125,000. Stamp duty mitigation scheme must be treated with caution by purchasers in Kirkby Stephen, as such schemes are expensive and often likely to fail. There have been a number of official schemes, such as disadvantaged area relief.


We are buying a property where the seller looks to have fitted roof antenna on the flat in Kirkby Stephen which I think might possibly infringe conservation area rules


Your property lawyer will make enquiries to identify whether the property is located within a designated conservation area, and if so whether any modifications have appropriate permission from the local authority.


Is set up to very fast completions on auction conveyancing in Kirkby Stephen?


Our property lawyers regularly carry out work for auction buyers and sellers.
