How do I get low cost conveyancing in Loughton?

What causes purchase conveyancing legal work to require so much time and effort? Isn't it just filling out forms?


The conveyancing process can be subject to numerous interruptions or delays. We work hard to reduce the consequences of these delays by driving the transaction forward. There are numerous reasons for delay, such as problems with arranging a mortgage.


How do we protect ourselves from getting gazumped?


This arises when a seller accepts an offer, then dismisses it, choosing instead a greater offer. Gazumping could occur even months into a sale. The danger of gazumping is present in any transaction. To reduce the likelihood of being gazumped, consider instructing a fast, efficient solicitor as early as possible.


Our mortgage lender is HSBC Bank, is there anything we need to check?


Some lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel'. For buyers, this can result in significantly greater legal costs. We are able to act on behalf of most lenders so that the buyer will not have to pay your lender's legal costs.


How do we work out SDLT and how much will it be on a £670000 house?


Stamp Duty in Loughton is calculated based on the valuation. Stamp duty will be £26800 on a £670000 house or flat.
