How do we find affordable conveyancing in Southampton?


Both high-street and online law firms advertise 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra charges may be added into the small print. Busy, stressed sellers and buyers ignore these terms at their peril. Any additional charges listed in terms of engagement should be fair and clearly defined. They only apply in cases where the lawyer is required to complete unexpected extra work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


If land is found to be contaminated, can the soil be inexpensively remediated?


Remediation may be possible. For Southampton, remediation is often the responsibility of local authorities to arrange. Speak to a local provider such as Mansbridge Turf, 38 Elgar Rd, Southampton, SO19 0JH for more details.


Do we need a house survey for our home purchase?

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors firmly recommend that Southampton property purchasers arrange a house surveyor. There are a wide range of problems which affect a property, that a solicitor will be unable to address, such as poor ventilation and blocked drains.


Which lender panels in Southampton are you on?


We can work alongside most lenders who are Council of Mortgage Lenders-approved. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Southampton, including Hayes Mortgage Advice, Flat 22 Carlton Court/Hulse Rd, Southampton, SO15 2JZ, Umbrella Financial Services, 7 London Rd, Southampton, SO15 2AE, and UK Personal Finance, Empress Ho/129-155 Empress Rd, Southampton, SO14 0JW. The solicitor handling your conveyancing transaction will be able to confirm additional costs or hurdles associated with your chosen lender.


The agent has offered the lawyer. Will it be more cost-effective to instruct this solicitor?


Many estate agents have arrangements with solicitors where they refer conveyancing clients to them. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, the agent may recommend the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.


I am preparing to move from our period building just outside Southampton to a bigger property in Ringwood , what is the best point to appoint a home removal firm?


The ideal way is for home movers to wait before booking the removals company until both sides have agreed an absolute home moving date that frequently takes place once contracts have exchanged. Try Ssd Removals, 92 Derby Rd, Southampton, SO14 0DL on 07899 718860 or Man & Van, 8/Bellevue Court/Bellevue Rd, Southampton, SO15 2AY Phone: 01590 670062.


When do I need to instruct a solicitor?


With few exceptions, instructing as early as possible is better. The legal work can then commence straight away. Early instruction of a solicitor can limit the risk of your transaction falling through.


How do you work out stamp duty, how much should it be on a £710k home?


The Stamp Duty you will owe will depend on the purchase price of the home. For a house valued at £710k, the SDLT rate is £28400.
