Q.

How do we get low cost conveyancing?

A.

Many conveyancers advertise supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately extra costs are often hiding in the terms and conditions, left unregarded by busy homeowners Any extra costs listed in the terms should be fair and reasonable. They be applicable if your conveyancer must complete unanticipated additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Your conveyancing quote should also clearly state any disbursements.

Q.

Does homewardlegal.co.uk look after the conveyancing for auction properties in Abbey Wood?

A.

We are able to work with residential property auction conveyancing. It is not unusual for hard to value auction lots e. g. development properties, are purchased in auctions which tend to want supplementary fact-finding. Homeward Legal therefore advise auction buyers to choose a lawyer well before the auction day to allow enough time for a detailed report.

Subsequently, immediately after the auction day the conveyancing solicitor is utterly focused on finishing the conveyancing in a month as typically required .

Q.

What environmental concerns will contaminate land in Abbey Wood, and should they be a problem?

A.

Several contaminants caused by natural causes and human activities can ruin land in Abbey Wood. Contaminants including waste treatment sites in the area will be considered as part of the environmental searches.

Q.

The estate agent we're using in Penley has offered a firm of solicitors. Will it be faster to use this solicitor?

A.

Estate agent referrals are a commonplace path for purchasers to get a solicitor, however, such referrals must be compared with other local solicitors, or better-value firms found online, as an agent may choose the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the law firm with the best reputation.

Q.

We need to know which Abbey Wood lenders your lawyers work with. Whose panels are you a member of?

A.

Of lenders with local branches in or near Abbey Wood, Homeward Legal work with many. Abbey Wood lenders and mortgage specialists include Whiter Financial Ltd, 119 Station Rd, Sidcup, DA15 7AJ, Robinson Liddell & Jackson, 1a Wellington Pde/Blackfen Rd, Sidcup, DA15 9NB, and A Class Mortgages, 40 Dobell Rd, London, SE9 1HE. Your conveyancing solicitors should be able to state specific lenders' requirements.

Q.

What steps can we take to hold off paying for stamp duty land tax?

A.

SDLT is payable for houses sold for over £125,000. Stamp duty reduction should not be considered when purchasing in Abbey Wood, because these 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 tax may be payable.

Q.

Could charges for the conveyancing conceal any hidden costs?

A.

Our solicitors do not hide any extra, hidden charges regardless of circumstances. Some solicitors only estimate conveyancing costs. The final bill you receive may be much more.

Q.

How soon should I speak to a conveyancer to act on our purchase?

A.

With few exceptions, instructing as soon as possible is wise, as there are a number of tasks that may be performed immediately. Early instruction of a conveyancing firm can reduce any chance of the transaction stalling.
