In about four weeks we are anticipating to be finally moving from our detached house in Shirley into a new building in Sheldon . What is the best point to select a removals firm?


Most property lawyers usually recommend that home buyers and sellers wait arranging removals until the contracts have exchanged because generally an absolute home moving date will not have been formally agreed. For a local Birmingham and the Black Country company Harveys Of Solihull, 340 Peterbrook Rd, Shirley, Solihull, B90 1JQ Telephone: 0121 430 4280 or Home Care Removals, 14 Blackford Rd, Shirley, Solihull, B90 4BT on 07879 616914.


Do you recommend looking into how to avoid paying HMRC stamp duty?


SDLT is usually payable on property over £125,000. Homeward Legal do not recommend home buyers arrange any stamp duty mitigation, as such schemes are expensive and , if a scheme is challenged, you can be fined up to 100% of the amount owed, in additional to the tax itself. There have been certain government initiatives, however, such as disadvantaged area relief. A conveyancing solicitor should confirm whether you are eligible.
