Please confirm the cheapest fee for a £742,000 property? I am looking for an affordable conveyancing estimate.


Various firms offer so-called cheap conveyancing. However additional costs can inflate your solicitor's invoice. Any extra costs which are listed in terms and conditions needs to be reasonable and clear. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.


How many weeks will conveyancing legal work require in South Woodford?


The time required to transact a property is not wholly predictable, according to numerous legal considerations which can include whether it is a leasehold property being transferred. For most firms in England and Wales, the average is between 8 to 12 weeks, whereas our solicitors aim for faster conveyancing, driving the transaction to complete within 6 to 8 weeks.


In about five weeks we are preparing to move from our semi detached building on the outskirts of South Woodford to a bigger home in New Wanstead . What is the optimum stage to select a removal company?

Most property lawyers tend to recommend that sellers delay arranging removals until the point where formal exchange of contracts as a move date wont have been formally agreed. If you are looking for a local company try GSG Man & Van, 43 Marlborough Rd, London, E18 1AR Phone: 020 8532 9735.


If I am buying in the parish of Haggerston St Mary, will we need a chancel search?


Your solicitor instructed to handle the transaction could recommend a chancel search. Although some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have opted to impose chancel repairs on the owners of land subject to chancel liability, there is no way to be certain that a parish where dues have not recently been paid will continue to be unaffected.


How is stamp duty rates calculated, and how much should it be on a £697000 residential property?


The Stamp Duty which will be owed is calculated with reference to the property's price. Stamp duty will be £27880 on a £697000 house or flat (correct March 2013).


I am on a deadline and would like guarantee fast conveyancing, what can we do to accelerate the transaction?


Firstly, a fast transaction is key is to use a experienced conveyancer. When identifying an appropriate a conveyancer, ask yourself the following: Do they offer 'no move, no fee' protection? This can incentivise a faster transaction. Do they offer 'instant' online quotes? Do they use email?


Which lender panels in South Woodford are you on?

A number of mortgage specialists operate in South Woodford, like Mortgage Monitor Ltd, 1 Raven Rd, London, E18 1HD, Mortgage Choice Direct Services, 41 High Rd, London, E18 2QP, and Alexander Fox Ltd, 3 The Shrubberies/George La, London, E18 1BD.
