I am looking for a fixed rate conveyancing quote in Victoria. What do we need to consider?


This matter catches out many buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many firms purport to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing', but additional charges can inflate the final invoice.


I have a need for very fast Victoria solicitors - is that you?


Annoyingly, too many property solicitors may be slow, causing even more stress to buying or selling a home.

We always work with home moving lawyers who will communicate up the home buyer and seller chain . In addition our panel of conveyancing property lawyers are actually chosen because they all use the best CMS systems leading to a completion on the sale quickly.


Is there anything I can do to get out of paying stamp duty in Victoria?


SDLT is generally due on residential property sold for over £125,000. Homeward Legal do not recommend any form of stamp duty mitigation. Such schemes are often uneconomical and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed and the total stamp duty amount may be due.


Is there an authority that has any thorough public record on the upkeep of Victoria conservation areas?


English Heritage have assembled records of the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas in England along with the exposure to deterioration. Local Victoria conservation area matters, for instance public spaces, removal of chimney stacks or traffic signs are governed by the local Westminster planning authority.


Does specialise the conveyancing for auction properties in Victoria?


Our firm is highly knowledgeable with buyers at auction. Regularly more complicated to convey homes e. g. tenanted properties, are included at property auctions which tend to require extended inquiries. Lawyers therefore strongly suggest bidders to appoint a lawyer in advance of the day of the auction to give enough time for a full review of the sellers legal pack.

Subsequently, following the date of the auction, the conveyancing solicitor has to be prepared for finalise the transaction inside 28 days after exchange of contracts as usually required by the conditions of sale.


Property environmental searches are estimated from archived records but when one considers climate change for instance the extensive flooding in the UK in April 2012 are they still appropriate to advise on sufficient information about the Victoria flood risk area?


Your Victoria property solicitor will suggest that you include flood risk searches if the standard search determines a any kind of risk of flooding in Victoria.

For extra history why not contact a neighbour of the property.


Do you need to get a chancel search if we are purchasing in Victoria?


Owners of property proximate to nearby church land must pay for repairs, where chancel repair liability exists. A chancel search checks that such a liability exists. Liability is more common in some parts of the country. Your solicitor can provide more details.


I am purchasing a home in Stamford Hill St Thomas. Is a chancel search necessary?


Your lawyer could recommend a chancel search. Chancel repair has the potential to be charged on current owners of a house where church councils may have not done so in the past, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.
