How do we get the best conveyancing rates for a £139k property?


Numerous law firms claim to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional charges can increase your final bill. Extras needs to be fair and clearly defined. They be applicable solely where the conveyancer is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction , 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 in South Acton has put forward the solicitors firm. Will it be faster to instruct them?


Both agents and mortgage brokers will often recommend one or more conveyancing firms. These referrals must be carefully considered, as there is a risk that an agent may choose the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the best value for you.


Is the HS2 line going to impact Ealing?


High Speed 2 Phase 1 will impact numerous homes in South Acton's local authority. This route from the capital to the West Midlands may be operational by 2026, but construction projects are expected to begin by 2017.


For a fast exchange and completion on the purchase of a £672,000 house, what should we organise to speed up our move?


Contacting a proactive conveyancing solicitor is key a fast conveyancing transaction. There are a range of things you as the buyer can do to speed up the process, including, responding to all correspondence via the fastest means, clarifying your mortgage lender's requirements and calling or emailing your conveyancing solicitor, and chase them if you suspect any delays.


In a few months we are intending to be finally moving from our detached building in Merton Park into our next house in Copse Hill , at what stage to choose a house removal firm?


The ideal approach is for buyers to put off arranging a removal van until you have decided a formal completion date which typically happens once exchange of contracts. There are many local and national companies including Merton Removal Company, 1/1/Manor Road, London, SW20 9AE Tel: 020 3432 9713.


What amount of time does the legal work to buy a house generally require, on average? If it matters, we are purchasing a house in Merton Park.


On average, the number of weeks needed to sell or purchase a home varies, dependent on several aspects which may include if it is a leasehold property being transferred. Our conveyancers strive to ensure the matter is undertaken as quickly as possible.


Please confirm how to get out of paying out for stamp duty to the Revenue?


Stamp duty scheme is not advised. These schemes are expensive and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed and the total stamp duty amount may be due. There have been several official schemes, such as for first-time buyers.


Should we get a chancel search if we are intending to buy in the parish of Exeter St Edmund?


The conveyancing solicitor may suggest that a chancel search be ordered, irrespective of the parish in which the property being purchased is found. In older areas of Merton Park, chancel repair has the potential to be charged on new owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. For property in the parish of Exeter St Edmund, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.
