How do we get the cheapest conveyancing solicitors?


Lack of clarity over this point catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many firms claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately extra costs are often hiding in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Busy, stressed homeowners ignore these terms at their peril. A quote should also state third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid.


We plan to complete on around 5th November, how is stamp duty calculated?


The SDLT payable depends on the property's value. On a £1025000 property in Seahouses, stamp duty will be £51250.


For fast legal work on the purchase of a £ 140,000 residence, what should we do?


Many buyers will, correctly, argue that contacting a proactive and experienced conveyancing solicitor is the key to a fast transaction. When finding a suitable a conveyancing solicitor, consider these questions: Will they order searches immediately? Was there a delay delivering a quote? What methods of communication do they use? Posting documents can adds days of waiting to a purchase.


Are buyers often gazumped in Seahouses?


This arises when a house seller acknowledges an offer and then rejects it in favour of a higher offer. The risk of gazumping exists for almost any purchase. The first step in reducing the chance that gazumping will effect you is to instruct your conveyancing solicitor as soon as you can.


The owner appears to have added unfitting roof aerials to the property in Seahouses which I think might possibly exclude local conservation area guidelines


The solicitor will determine whether your new home is located within a designated conservation area, and if so whether any modifications have the essential consents from the local planning authority.


Which local authority is responsible for Seahouses?


Seahouses is located in Northumberland County Council, County Hall, Morpeth, NE61 2EF, phone: 0845 600 6400


Can you confirm how I get out of paying SDLT?


Stamp Duty Land Tax is generally payable on property over one hundred and twenty-five thousand pounds. We do not recommend conveyancing clients risk any stamp duty mitigation scheme. Such schemes are expensive and very risky.
