How do I find the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Knaphill?


Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many buyers and sellers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned, and many property lawyers advertise theoretically cheap conveyancing, but extra fees may be added into the terms. Any disbursements to be paid should be included on a quote Any additional costs found in terms and conditions should be reasonable. Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

The property solicitor will brief you about the most appropriate course of action, depending on issues like mortgage lender requirements. For personal searches, your lawyer might perhaps look for a local search company, for instance, STL Group plc, Edbrooke House, 11-13 St Johns Road, Woking, Surrey, GU21 7SE Tel: 01483 715355 Fax: 01483 756837


Can we bypass paying stamp duty to the Revenue?


Homeward Legal do not recommend any form of stamp duty mitigation, as such schemes are expensive and , if the scheme fails, you may be charged a penalty of up to 100% of the stamp duty amount owed.


What factors can affect land in Knaphill. Are they a problem?


Residential property may be contaminated by a range of natural causes and human activities, and an environmental search should reveal if a property is impacted by local contaminants including petroleum and fuel sites or waste disposal sites.


Will a title report prepared by the conveyancing solicitor in Knaphill give information the cost of the council tax on a Band H townhouse before exchanging contracts?


Your lawyer will write to the local authority to ascertain the current council tax band and rates, which will then be written in the title report. Correct charges for properties in Knaphill are set out in detail at the council site.


In 2 months we are expecting to be finally moving out of our semi detached home on the outskirts of Knaphill to our new property in Kingston at what point to select a removals firm?


Most conveyancers usually recommend that you put off booking a removals company until the contracts have exchanged has been notified as a date wont have been scheduled. Try Bisley Removal Services, Bull Housen Farm Shaftesbury Road, Bisley, Woking, GU24 9EW Telephone: 01483 489611.


If we are intending to buy near Knaphill, in the parish of Nutfield, do we need a chancel search?


Your property solicitor is likely to recommend a chancel search, irrespective of the parish where the home being bought is located. Through some parish councils have determined to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, a solicitor cannot state with certainty that a parish where repair costs have not been paid before will remain liability-free for new owners. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.


The residence being bought is on a brownfield site. What should we do regarding cobalt (Co) soil contamination?


Considerable measures are taken throughout Knaphill to remediate soil contamination. The local authority for Knaphill will be able to provide more detail on cases of contamination.
