For fast conveyancing to buy a £171,000 property, what do we need to guarantee?


As is widely reported, contacting a proactive property lawyer is crucial to a fast completion. There are, however, a number of tasks you as the purchaser can do. These include:

  • encouraging your property lawyer to carry out searches promptly
  • promptly completing and return any forms
  • organising your finances, including arranging a mortgage
  • Q.

    Please tell us why conveyancing goes on for so long?


    Conveyancing can be obstructed. We appreciate how disruptive they may be and work hard to minimise their consequences whenever we can do so. Reasons for delay include problems with arranging a mortgage.


    Will you need to get searches for chancel liability if we are buying a Paddock Wood flat on the same road as a church?


    The result of a landmark case 10 years ago confirmed that chancel repair liability could be enforced. After the passing of an Act in 2002, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. The solicitor handling your conveyancing will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary. Paddock Wood ecclesiastical properties which may give rise to chancel liability include St Andrew.


    Can we get out of paying out for stamp duty to HM Revenue?


    Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) usually must be paid for property purchases valued at over 125,000 pounds. Stamp duty scheme must be treated with caution, as such schemes are often uneconomical and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed . There have been a range of government initiatives, such as relief for buyers in 'disadvantaged areas', and your solicitor will advise if these may apply.
