Can you advise how I get out of paying for stamp duty?
Stamp duty mitigation should not be considered. These schemes are costly and unreliable.
What average time does it take our assigned property lawyer to finish the legal work for an apartment in an Edwardian house we are intending to buy in Acton?
The process can take anywhere between around a month and twelve weeks, based on any number of issues e.g. the speed of the seller's conveyancing solicitor, or absent parties. Homeward Legal's property lawyers are very focused on pushing transactions through you moving home as soon as possible.
Should I organize a private purchase of items on the Fixtures and Fittings form?
This would be very unwise as the Fixtures and Fittings Form (TA10) forms part of the contract, and it lists all the items that the seller is planning to leave at the property with an agreed price for anything they want money for.
To try to organise a private sale outside of this clear and controlled process may result in difficulties later on in the process, which is precisely why this form is in place. If you want something to remain that’s not listed on the Fixtures and Fittings Form, raise a query through your solicitor so that negotiations may be formally carried out.

We have found abundant very helpful resources giving details on doing the legal work yourself. That being the case, do I need to use a conveyancing solicitor in Acton ?
There is no argument at all why you cannot conduct the legal work yourself. The truth is however that a conveyancing solicitor in Acton juggles a large number of functions including approving enquiries on searches or apportioning service charges which really need experience. Moreover firms and their solicitors must pay for acceptable cover to insulate you in the event of any negligence made by the lawyer.
