Q.

Can you confirm your cheapest fee for a £641,000 home? I need an affordable conveyancing estimate.

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many buyers paying out more than they anticipated in the end. Many property lawyers purport to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional fees are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms of engagement. This small print is often not read by buyers in a hurry. Fees should be clearly defined.

Q.

I am completing next March. What will be calculated for Stamp Duty Land Tax?

A.

Stamp Duty is calculated with reference to the valuation. It is £0 on a £94000 property.*

Myself and my partner are buying in Aintree. Are there many designated conservation areas in the area?

Instructing a solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer to handle your transaction should help to reduce the likelihood of gazumping.

When do you need to speak to a solicitor to act for us?

A.
